the southern part of the island.
Bali is a popular tourist destination, which has seen a
significant rise in tourists since the 1980s.
Tourism-related business makes up 80% of its economy. It
is renowned for its highly developed arts, including
traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting,
leather, metalworking, and music. The Indonesian
International Film Festival is held every year in Bali.
In March 2017, Tripadvisor named the island the world's
