Bali is undeniably the tourist capital of Indonesia with a fast growing hospitality industry and associated business ventures. It is a unique place with a diverse landscape, ranging from picturesque mountains and terraced rice fields to world-class surf breaks and white sandy beaches.
Balinese people are proud of having preserved their peaceful and unique Hindu culture. Throughout the year numerous ceremonies and festivals are held during which you can hear traditional music in the streets, smell the mystifying incense and see authentically dressed women carrying offerings on their heads to one of the many temples on the island.
Every year tourists from all over the world are attracted to witness the beauty of the island and experience the unique Balinese culture. The number of tourist arrivals keeps on growing every year. Bali offers all types of accommodation, ranging from budget, middle until luxurious hotel rooms and resorts, ready to cater the needs of various tourist markets.
Bali is also growing as a corporate destination, offering an impressive range of international-standard meeting facilities and conference venues. Bali furthermore houses a variety of innovative business concepts. The positive trends in hospitality, tourism and MICE industry are undeniably another reason to study towards a double Bachelor’s degree in Bali.
