A New Vibe

When you first arrive in Bali, you will immediately be welcomed by the Bali vibe. Rich culture, beautiful Balinese architecture, diversity, and maybe a party.

Pyramid and Statues

Other than the beautiful coral reefs in Amed, there are also other things you can see. To conserve the ecosystem, people planted pyramids as a way for corals to grow.
