Indonesia - Bali

Bali is the major tourist destination in Indonesia.  It is an island located about two hous flight northwest of Darwin, Australia, and so receives mostly Australian tourists.  It is unique in that while Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, Bali is Hindu even though the residents are non-Indian.  Denpasar on the south coast is the main city with Kuta Beach being the main tourist desination.  Less visited places are on the north coast.
