Top 5 Attractions of Seminyak, Bali for Travelers

Spas, shopping, endless beaches, and beautiful scenery--that is what is waiting for you in Bali, Indonesia. The Seminyak region of Bali is where travelers and tourists find relaxation, green space, and lively, upscale accommodations. With the recent renovations to Seminyak beach and the surrounding roadways, as well as wonderful improvements to the tourism industry, Seminyak is now a great destination for Japanese tourists.

More Japanese Visitors
In 2015, the Indonesian government made it very easy for Japanese tourists to obtain a free visa. This allows for the Japanese to enter without issues, unlike some other popular travel destinations. Plus, Indonesia is only 4,819 km away (or 5.3 hours by plane).
In 2016, Bali travel agencies reported that from January to August, over 154,000 Japanese tourists visited the island. A lot of these travelers are attracted to Balinese culture, including the activities that allow for the practice of Balinese instruments, like the tabuh, and traditional dances.
Additionally, Indonesia has maintained a large Japanese expatriate community since the early 19th century. This has allowed for visiting Japanese to feel more comfortable in the surroundings, because some of Japan’s culture and traditions have been assimilated into the identity of the island. Of course, the diversity of Indonesian culture is also a treat.
