Bali and the dragons of Ko­modo

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - TRAVEL -

Bali has al­ways been one of the world’s ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tions – an ex­otic land of soar­ing, for­est-shrouded vol­ca­noes, thou­sands of in­tri­cate rice ter­races, and a wel­com­ing pop­u­la­tion deeply con­nected to its past. Al­though modern life has clearly ar­rived in cer­tain parts of the is­land, the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple in the coun­try­side still keep their an­cient tra­di­tions alive with a ded­i­ca­tion that’s all too ab­sent in other parts of the world.
