Bali, renowned for its tropical beauty and rich culture, unveils another layer of its charm with the VW Safari Bali Tour. This unique journey offers visitors the opportunity to explore the island’s scenic vistas and cultural hubs using the classic Volkswagen Safari Car, an emblematic representation of vintage elegance.
The Volkswagen, though rare in Bali, holds a unique place in the island’s history. Originally termed as the Volkswagen Type 181 and known as “The Thing” in America, these cars were initially designed for military utility. Over time, these vehicles were adapted for civil use and mass-produced. In Indonesia, the VW Safari was widely used by local officials in the 1970s, given its durability and versatility. Today, these vintage beauties serve as a nostalgic ride for tourists eager to explore Bali’s enchanting landscapes.
