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.
