Bali is affordable, even cheap
VALUE FOR MONEY
Bali is still part of the developing world, labor cost are low, the workforce is young and motivated, and education levels are rising continuously. These and a few other factors make Bali a rather cheap and affordable travel destination. If you pay in Europe, States, or Australia a two star hotel, in Bali you will most likely get a 4 star for that amount.
