How to Decide Where to Stay in Bali, Indonesia

Bali is an Indonesian island, around 150 km long and 110 km wide, so in terms of size, it certainly could not be accused of being large but in terms of experiences, it certainly ‘packs a punch’.

Every region has something to offer and it is for the visitor to decide which area is going to suit them best. Many choose a multicenter holiday so that they can ...

Here’s one strategy for lowering costs: eschew particularly expensive locations for cheaper alternatives. As always, think broadly about alternatives. In some cases, a neighbori...

What to Do to Survive an Airplane Water Landing — A Photographic Essay Which Could Save Your Life

The probability of you being involved in a crash or accident while you are a passenger seated aboard an airplane is so remote that you will likely never have either of those experiences; and incidents of water ditching — which is when an airplane lands in the water in the event of an emergency — are so rare in commercial aviation that they occurred only 21 times in the past 67 years, so you will almost certainly never experience a real incident.
