Is this a good deal?
Yes, and no. Qatar are an excellent airline, and if you enjoy flying with them, then this sale could save you money. That said, these are economy promo fares that are hand luggage only. You will find cheaper alternatives on some routes (Melbourne and Bali, for instance), so I would advise using Kayak to compare prices on the route and dates you're interested in.
It's also worth noting that there's a blackout period between 13 December 2018 and 13 January 2019 inclusive, when the deal wont apply.
Average flight time: 16hrs and 15 mins
Paradise is the only word that really does this place justice. You can loose yourself in its sheer beauty, Bali really is a spiritual, tropical heaven.
With its diverse culture exploding out of everything from the showering of flower petals and the temple ceremonies to the traditional singing and dancing that can be found island-wide - everything seems to have spiritual meaning in this stunning setting, so its hard not to loose yourself in its serenity.
At its centre, you'll find dramatic volcanoes and the 10,000 plus temples that scatter the hillside's of the central mountains. At its tallest peak, you'll find Gubung Agung, Bali's spiritual core. Read our full destination guide here.
