Today, Balinese live essentially on tourism. Previously, rice culture was the main source of wealth, alongside with fishing, and they remain sources of income for the poors.
The island benefits from a very particular quality of rice culture, that allows three harvests of rice a year, a unique advantage.
It also became one of the most popular destinations in the last few years, and in 2017 Tripadvisor – the travel reference – rated it the first destination in the world, before Paris.
All these aspects make Bali the richest island in the country (per inhabitant).
