Gays, lesbians and gay families are among those drawn to the tropical paradise of Indonesia. They come for the romance, the after dark clubs, the surfing, the shopping, the wellbeing spas and cooking classes. Not to mention they come for dream adventures.
Whether its pampering and relaxation or exotic animal activities with kids, Bali has all the lures. Not the least of which is climbing up the volcano crater at sunrise and mountain biking down through terraced rice fields, and stopping for a refreshing hot springs plunge in ancient rock pools.
Quad biking anyone? Now there’s dykes on bikes! Monkeys, birds, butterflies and dragons at Bali Zoo excite the kids. Gay men have been spotted on the challenging treetop ropes course at Bali Botanical Gardens in the mountains, and lesbians on the championship golf course.
Gay travellers have discovered and rediscovered budget and luxury travel in Bali. Which is reflected by the range of gay-owned and gay welcoming accommodation, both in the popular tourist towns and in remote beaches and in the rural parts of Bali to the west and north.
