When travelers think of paradise, Bali is often one of the next words to come to mind. Rich in history and dotted with magnificent Hindu temples, this island provides a varied, immense filming topography.
Unlike the calming tides of the Gulf of Thailand, Bali is battered with epic surf swells that blow in from the open Pacific Ocean. Awe-inspiring seaside cliffs and dormant volcanoes also combine to give this legendary island a truly panoramic scope. It’s no surprise that film productions have been setting up shop at this location since the island was put on the map.
Because of the abundant documentary production activity occurring locally, Bali has an established film and television infrastructure. Whatever is not available there is convenient to find in Jakarta, which is only a short flight away.
