Bali is one of Indonesia’s most famous islands and it isn’t hard believe why. In fact, in 2009 Bali was ranked the World’s Best Island by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

Here are 12 reasons why this small, tropical island is considered one of the world’s best destinations:

1. Tirta Gangga Water Palace. You’ll find that the beautiful architecture and natural scenery make this temple stand out. It’s also owned by a royal family! Tirta Gangga
