The magical Indonesian island of Bali—often called the world’s most beautiful—is truly a South Seas Paradise. And now, with it’s Exotic Bali tour starting at only $1,999, World Spree Travel
has made it as accessible and affordable as Jamaica or Hawaii. What’s more: World Spree has made it a new kind of group tour, starting with organized visits to the most famous sites from Ubud, the inland cultural heart of Bali, proceeding to a 4-day relaxing “vacation within a vacation” at a luxurious Nusa Dua beach resort (with lots of do-it-yourself activities), ending with the flexibility of independent travel on optional extensions to metropolitan Singapore and Hong Kong.
The super-value Exotic Bali tour includes round-trip flights on Cathay Pacific (from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Boston), nine nights’ hotel accommodation, nine international buffet breakfasts, four lunches and a dinner, all ground transportation, comprehensive sightseeing tours with entrance fees, Cultural Insite programs, professional English-speaking guides and baggage handling.
The charming hotel in Ubud is the Alaya Ubud, a stylish boutique hotel surrounded by natural beauty but within walking distance of Ubud and its many arts and crafts workshops. The well-equipped rooms have either a balcony or terrace and the hotel offers a swimming pool, spa and restaurant. In Nusa Dua the hotel is the 5-star Melia Bali, a prestigious beach resort with five restaurants overlooking a reef-fringed lagoon and surrounded by lush gardens and a pool that winds through the grounds.
Here there are DIY opportunities to swim, cruise to Bali‘s three small sister islands, go surfing, snorkeling, shopping, take a wildlife safari or just loll on the beach or by the pool.
Those who want to see more of Southeast Asia—and travel independently with a list of suggested activities and restaurants—can take an optional $599, 3-day extension to the dynamic island nation of Singapore to shop, sightsee and enjoy some of the world’s best cuisine, while staying in the luxurious Pan Pacific Hotel overlooking Marina Bay. There’s also a $599, 3-day stopover in Hong Kong, another culinary capital, with accommodations in Kowloon’s sleekly-designed Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, which is right in the middle of Hong Kong’s largest shopping complex on Victoria Harbor.
