Recently Sydney Morning Herald writer Kate Cox chose to ignore naysayers, travel warnings and even a Syndey cab driver bringing her to the airport for her flight to Bali – all urging her that NOW was not the time to visit what has traditionally been Australia's most preferred overseas holiday destination.

Throwing caution to the wind and, perhaps, knowng first had that you can’t believe everything you read in the newspaper, the intrepid journalist boarded her Garuda flight to Bali and discovered an island that is placing added emphasis on security while still maintaining the simple charm and grace for which the Balinese are famous.

Bali Has Changed – Well, Maybe Just a Little

Descrbing an island where security is "super tight," Cox encountered security checks, guards and dogs at hotel entrances, restaurants and beach areas across the island.

Like many of her fellow countrymen and women, this was not Cox's first visit to Bali. Her past familiarity with what the Island has on offer left her pleasantly surprised when she encountered Bali’s new and very chic life-style products targetted at a new, more sophisticated high-end traveler. Quality housegold furnishings, hip fashions produced by island-based "known" local and international designers, and dining venues the equal to any of Sydney's finest eateries – all await the visitor to Bali.

In the words of the pleasantly surprised Australian journalist, "It's a long way from foam parties and $2 batik sarongs," that she remembered from earlier Bali sojourns.

Be sure to follow the link provided and read Kate Cox's complete article containing lots of practical tips on where to eat, shop and be pampered during a trip to Bali.
