In Search of the Real Bali
Bali is a global tourist destination. So, it makes sense that Bali seems to be overdeveloped.
People may complain about it–the overdevelopment. Most definitely there are less rice paddies (sawah) in Ubud than there was when I first arrived in 2010.
But, if one is wanderer/adventurer, one doesn’t have to go far to find the real Bali.
