2. Bali, Indonesia

For those craving a simple and fuss-free vacation, Bali often jumps to mind, as evidenced by its high spot on Skyscanner’s search rankings during this period. More specifically, the capital city of Denpasar registers the most, and while it may not be the tropical paradise that many picture Bali to be, it is as much a part of the island’s charm as the paddy fields and temples.

Travellers head to Denpasar for its shopping malls and serene parks, but more recently, its restaurant and café scene has become a trove for contemporary yet authentic finds. While warung (humble family-owned eateries) still remain popular, modernised cafés serving local must-haves, like grilled chicken with lemongrass and spices, as well as deep-fried calamari, are starting to draw in big spenders.
