yo everyone this is a pretty general question but it is for those who have been to Bali.

I just want to know what your experiences are, whether it was worth it, whether there is much to do, whether shopping is good and cheap, whether the nightlife is good (particularly for those still under 18 as i mentioned in an earlier post) and anything else of note.

Replies much appreciated.

cheers.

I went with my brother to Bali expecting a big party scene, was a little disappointed when comparing it to a lot of European/Thai resorts. The main street in Kuta had a bit of a seedy feel to it being offered drugs and prostitutes every 10 metres or so by men hanging around in poorly lit areas of the road. The Sari club was great, but i think we all know what happened to that. It is a beautiful island though, well worth going to. Something else that put me off was the packs of dogs that roam along Legian beach, and the hawkers are annoying too.

If you're into surfing it's a good place to go. There is lots to see and do. Personally, i prefer the beaches and nightlife of Thailand. Much, much better.
