  1. Nice List, however never go to MOUNT BATUR – BALI, INDONESIA. There are people who call themselves guides, but they are mobsters / mafia. They want you to pay a lot of money to hire them as a guide. When you say no, or try to negotiate about the price they will attack you. Also when you try to hike up the mountain on your own; they will attack you.
