But for me, I used the sofa to stow my backpack and made it my open closet so that I can easily see the things I need to use during my 2-nights stay.

  1. What a wonderful post about Bali, I absolutely adore it. The two best places to stay in Bali are Ubud and Kuta beach, in my opinion, as they are the most relaxed and party places.
