Bali is an extremely welcoming place for kids of all ages, and the Indonesians themselves particularly patient, tolerant and gifted in keeping kids happy. Wherever you go on Bali (with the exception of a few resorts which keep an adult
only policy), your children will be welcomed and most certainly fussed over, picked up and even walked around by staff. There is so much to do on this island paradise, mainly outdoor activities, so remember to keep the liquids and sun-cream topped up and away you all go!
