Travel Tuesday: Kuta, Bali

Bali’s biggest and busiest city, Kuta, resembles many of its counterparts across the developing world.

Cramped store front shops selling goods emblazoned with the local beer, beaches, sights an sayings. There’s 5-star hotels pushed up against locally-owned shack-type-hotels for a few dollars a night. It’s both squalor and ritz; a millionaires paradise and a poor students haven.

East meets West, first world meets developing world. A place shifting so quickly it could transform into anything in the next decade. A city that’s begun to blossom.
