But, how much has Bali actually changed since the pandemic? And where are the best places to head, post Covid times?
They’re the million-dollar questions most Aussies are asking, which is why we’ve created the Ultimate 2022 Bali Guide, answering the most frequently searched questions so you can get back to Bali and make the most of your next Holiday.

Bali has definitely had a massive shift post – Covid, but it seems to be back up and running, and in our opinion, absolutely thriving.
The main shift we noticed was that the previous infamous party suburb of Kuta is reported to be much quieter, with more people and businesses residing in Canggu. Known for it’s amazing beach stretch and colourful nightlife, Canggu is absolutely bustling and we’re not even mad about it 😎
