Southeast Asia has so many attractive destinations that it can be difficult to choose, right?
As an island, Bali is the perfect combination of natural beauty and fascinating culture.
Compared to Bali, Thailand has a stronger rainy season. However, both are easily available and you will need roughly the same budget for both.
Bali and Thailand offer options for backpackers as well as luxury tourism. And there’s a lot to do in both.
One of the main differences between Bali and Phuket are the beaches.
In Bali, the beaches are perfect for surfers as it swells all the time, but not for swimmers (with the exception of some beaches). They aren’t the prettiest either.
Phuket, on the other hand, has the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen: pristine, deserted, pristine, crystal clear waters and white sand set high standards. It is best for swimmers and those who love beautiful scenery along with snorkeling and island hopping.
