Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world for travellers.

However, it is important to remember that Indonesia is something of an underdeveloped country. Although you may decide to stay in a comfortable Bali villa or hotel, you won’t always be able to find the things that we take for granted in countries like Australia, and this may make it hard for you during your visit to Bali.
One of the biggest things that we have, and that we take for granted in developed countries, is internet access.
