Keep the beach clean-Think environment!

Bali, traditionally a mecca for tourists, is one of the most inspirational places in the world and on the SWATCH FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.

It's been a long time between drinks for Bali since hosting their first and only other World Tour event in 1995 but the little Indonesian island is a more than adequate recipient for a $150,000 event in 2003.

Arguably one of the last places on earth still to conjure up images of mystique, peace and goodwill Bali encompasses all the ideals of what is volleyball. Friendly people and welcoming traditions make for a special event in a special location.

One of the most westerly of the Little Sunda Islands, Bali is one of the nearly 13,700 islands that make up the Republic of Indonesia, the world's largest archipelago. And it is this setting, which makes it a tranquil yet stirring venue for the international women beach volleyballers of today.

Culture and beauty are two words tossed around frequently when describing Bali, and the World Tour scene of Seminyak Beach fits right into the mould. The serene setting of the golden beaches and crystal blue seas will win over one and all. It is already a favorite with the local "ex-pat" community, especially due to the large number of highly rated restaurants in the area and the non-existent traffic problems.

Tourists normally associate Bali with a journey of a lifetime, the chance to absorb the local customs and traditions and above all it's these principles, which make the Bali stop on the World Tour, one not to be missed.
