What’s your favourite destination you’ve visited and why?

My favourite destination has to be Bali. Their villas are gorgeous and they implement a lot of sustainable indigenous design in their rentals at a relatively reasonable price. I also love how dramatically scenic and magical the landscape is, from the mountains to the volcanoes and the forests. It also has a great blend of culture, people, nature and activities to do.
