While Bali has seen an influx of tourists in recent years, travelers who are willing to go off the beaten track can still find its hidden charms. Other than Nepal, Bali is the only other Hindu-majority region outside of India, and is home to a fascinating culture which blends a variety of influences. In terms of activities, Bali is a versatile destination; visitors can find a variety of pursuits, including trekking, surfing, diving, and rafting, or cultural pastimes, such as dance, cuisine, music, and textiles. Among Bali's gems are the Taman Ujung, a palace constructed to dazzle and awe foreign notables, and which features eclectic, diverse design influences; hikes along lush, emerald-green rice terraces; and sampling Bali's polyglot culture, particularly its famous, native dance.
