Why is Bali overrated?
The resorts and beaches are overrated: Most beach destinations have a wide variety of resorts, as does Bali. Also, the beaches, the crowded and the exclusive are also as mundane or as gorgeous as most other beaches I’ve been to. A sunset in Bali doesn’t look any less pretty than a sunset in Krabi for instance.

Where in Australia is most like Bali?

Why do so many Australian tourists behave poorly in Bali?
In Australia, most people are equal, but in places like Bali, they think they are superior because they are spending money which pays the wages of the locals. Also, the locals put up with it and allow bad behaviour because local businesses need their money.
