Bali & Komodo

It wasn’t until 1910 that the outside world first discovered Komodo dragons. For millions of years these ancient reptiles had ruled supreme on their Indonesian islands. Without any natural predators, they dominated the ecosystem, and their survival was virtually guaranteed.

Few places evoke the same lush, exotic imagery as the islands of Nussa Tenggara from Bali to Komodo.

The island of Bali in the south Pacific is considered to be one of the best places to relax in the world. While sitting on the beach and working on your tan can be a great way to spend the day, more active travelers are going to want to get out and explore at some point. Fortunately, Bali is also home to many snorkeling spots with plenty of aquatic life for you to see.

Fuzzy, grey-bearded faces peer out at visitors as they enter the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal in Bali. The four troops of Balinese long-tailed macaques in this forest are protected by Hindu values, offering visitors a unique nature travel experience.

Visitors have a good chance of seeing a macaque in the forest, as there are roughly 340 of them residing there. They live in distinct troops that occupy certain areas of the forest and very occasionally have violent inter-troop conflicts, according to the forest's website.
