Bali is home to ancient temples that are not merely archaeological sites but are backdrops to colourful celebrations. Explore the iconic Tanah Lot or watch the sunset Kecak fire dance at Uluwatu. If you want to laze on the beach, Kuta or Pemuteran is the best bet. Don't miss out Gamelan, a form of Balinese percussion orchestra. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Sanjay Thakkar says, "Kuta beach is one of Bali tourist spot, in a good weather. The travellers could enjoy sea surfing or just swim at a certain safe location at the beach." HolidayIQ reviewer Sheena says, "The climb up Mt. Batur was another amazing experience, not the easiest and certainly no cakewalk but once you make it to the summit, the sheer feeling of achievement awarded by the absolutely gorgeous sunrise is fulfilling, to say the least."

Take a short boat ride to the uninhabited island of Ile aux Cerfs and you will witness a magical world of pretty little starfishes. This area is a hotspot of thriving sea urchin population. Healthy coral reef attracts travellers to go snorkelling, kayaking and of course, glass bottom boat trips. Chamarel Seven Colored Earth is another place you cannot miss.

HolidayIQ reviewer Sebastian says, "The moment you land in Mauritius, you feel relaxed right away as the people around you are not rushing but quite relaxed and chilled. Some places of Interest include Port Louis, Black River National Park and Ganga Talao with an amazing Shiva Statue (108 ft tall), seven coloured earth etc."

HolidayIQ reviewer Sandeep says, "Better you keep an umbrella for unexpected drizzles. Singapore Flyer was amazing. We could see the entire city up the flyer. We went for river and night safari in the Singapore Zoo. The experience was awesome as we could tigers, lions and elephants very close to us."
