Many people say that Bali is overrated, too touristy and not worth to visit. I guess it really all depends how you would enjoy Bali. Not only that it has been popular in it’s own right, with post eat, pray, love, is there still the Bali that started it all?

Regardless, as time has passed, and places may have grown, yes Bali is still what it is somewhat but not quite.
