There are so many excellent entries that we'll still be sharing dream holiday entries well into the month of May - and perhaps beyond. So if you haven't seen your entry yet, don't despair. Remember, we'll soon be giving away a Bali Dream Holiday for two. Send your vision of a perfect dream holiday in Bali and earn the chance to win 2 tickets on Singapore Airlines, 7 nights at the Four Seasons Private Estates Bali at Jimbaran Bay, tours and transfers from Bali Discovery Tours, rafting and cycling excursions from Sobek, luxurious spa treatments from Mandara Spa, a helicopter tour from Air Bali, and Cooking Lessons from Bumbu Bali/Rumah Bali.

Entries are welcome from everyone in every form, from both veteran travelers to Bali or those who have only dreamed of visiting our tropical paradise.

Dianne Buerger,, from Malaysia sent this week's dream selection in the form of a letter to a friend:

Dream Holiday in Bali

Dear Angela,

You asked me to tell you about life in Bali. The physical similarities to other islands are there with fabulous beaches, palm and coconut trees, tropical flowers and exotic fruits, however Bali is unique.

The special reverence the gentle Balinese have for their Hindu religion is reflected in everyday living. Life here is the daily sighting of offerings placed at strategic positions in the temple, home and workplace or at road crossings. It's the smell of incense, the sound of bamboo instruments or the pounding of a kul-kul to call people together.

It's driving down a small road lined with penjors - large decorated bamboo poles that invite the gods to descend from the heavens to earth. Or being stuck in traffic behind a large group of people dressed in ceremonial clothes, bound for the temple. It's seeing villagers bathe in creeks beside the road and the huge white smiles of children who wave madly and chase your car.

It's the choice of five-star hotel luxury or the blessed simplicity of a warung and home stay. It's the fun of bargaining while shopping and cries of "You want watch, rent car, massage, plaint your hair, bracelet, transport, change money?"

It's amazement at the skill and patience of painters, woodcarvers, dancers, musicians, weavers and silver and goldsmiths. It's the wonder that a whole family (and their pet!) can fit on one motorbike.

It's the smell of exotic spices and the satisfaction of a sumptuous fish dinner on the beach at Jimbaran Bay. It's the beauty of beaches, mountains, rice fields and volcanoes. It's luscious tropical gardens and outdoor living.

It's joy that here, children are cherished beings.

Life in Bali is all these things and more. How I dream of taking you there to experience it all.

Sweet dreams my friend.
