Bali island, who doesn’t know about this island? Even when we ask tourists, Bali is more famous than Indonesia. With the collaboration of nature and culture, it makes Bali become the most visited destination since tourists visit keep increasing year by year. Although, after the pandemic situation Bali still has to recover from the lockdown that makes Bali’s tourism drop for a while. Pandemic effects truly impact all aspects of life such as economic, tourism, and environment. At that time, Bali’s tourism just took a break for a while after a long destination visited by tourists. Today, Bali has recovered. A lot of tourists visit Bali and the best-sunset view beaches around Kuta and Canggu become more crowded. Many tourists probably focus on exploring Bali’s nature, whereas Bali has several ceremonies that can inspire your shoot.
