Belonging to Indonesia, the island of Bali lies between Java and Lombok in the Indian Ocean. Between Bali and Lombok runs the so-called Wallace line which separates Asiatic and Australian flora and fauna. The diversified landscape makes up Bali's special zest, as there are eight different vegetation zones. The fauna is accordingly manifold. Extensive coral reefs off the coast attract divers, but the island also has a lot to offer to beach- and culture lovers. For example, the hindu temple Tanah Lot, situated on a cliff in the sea, or Ulu Watu on a steep coast are well worth seeing. Climbers and nature lovers should not miss Gunung Agung, the highest mountain of the island.
