Exotic Bali

I'll always love Bali. The people is very friendly and the island itself is constantly growing. It has some of the world's best resorts and restaurants. The architecture and designs are exquisite. There are always new things to explore in Bali. This beauty is worth to come back to every time.

This is the second time I stayed in Conrad and it just feels like the first time. I love the architecture and design; contemporary yet keeping the integrity of traditional elements found in Bali's culture.

Bali is also famous for their boutique hotel/villa. Every year, numerous boutique hotel are introduced. Every rooms has it owns private pool. The Royal Santrian is the latest addition and next to Conrad. We were able to check out the property and one of the villa. Impressive but pricey.

When you are in Bali, you must visit Jenggala. It's a pottery heaven. It produces one of the best handcrafted ceramic in the world. Here are some of my many favorite picks.

Then, there's Piment Rouge, my other favorite store. Famous for their lighting, you will also find many local artworks, household linen, home decor and accessories.

Hope you enjoy this little glimpse of my trip. Have a great weekend!
