The great escape
Bali’s picturesque beach, curling waves and tranquil ambiance attracted visitors from around the globe. Though some areas are more frequently visited, each offers its own unique activity and attraction. Here are some of the best places to visit while you’re in the island.
SEARCHING FOR VINTAGE CLOTHING is not yet a habit cultivated in Bali, or in Indonesia as a whole. But those who take much pleasure in the adrenaline-pumping treasure hunt over vintage garments should charter a car to Pasar Kodok in Tabanan. It’s a muddy, sweltering hot open market that lures only the curious. Some expats who have lived on the island for more than five years often announce their findings happily after a day well spent in the roughly translated Frog Market. Jackets, pants, blouses, and jeans are all on sale here, and for only ten bucks you can go home with not just one or two, but three items. That is, as long as you’ve honed your bargaining skills.
