Bali's main tourist areas have  something for everyone. Whatever your tastes, desires and dreams, they are out there somewhere. Bali follows a European approach to the night: the later, the better for night clubbing. So there is plenty of time to shower and relax after a hard day of sight seeing or lying on the beach. And time also to enjoy sunset drinks followed by a leisure dinner.
