Bali, a province of Indonesia, is a land full of magic and mystery. It is truly one of the most breathtaking places on Earth. There is a wonderful blend of culture, nature, weather, and food. It’s a paradise.
But there is something that has astounded even the most traveled person about Bali recently and it has become one of the most sought-after tourist destinations on the island.
There is an abandoned Boeing 737 which seems to have just appeared beside the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Highway. It is resting in a limestone quarry, and no one really knows how the plane ended up there. There are multiple stories that the locals are telling about the Boeing 737.
Some believe that the plane was put there in parts and later put together in the deserted location by an entrepreneur. They say he wanted to transform it into a restaurant but abandoned the project.
But, this isn’t the only abandoned Boeing on the island. Another one lies beside a Dunkin’ Donuts location, this one is a tourist attraction as well.
The jets do not have any branding on them. In 2021, a third jet was noticed on top of a cliff at the Nyang-Nyang beach. It is well known that this jet belongs to a Russian named Felix Demin. He landed the plane there to attract tourists and awaken their curiosity.
He hopes to attract tourists and photographers and he plans to convert it into tourist accommodation.
Some are not so happy about it and believe that it ruins the beauty of the sea view.
If you would like to see these mystery planes, Tony Dunnell, spokesperson for Atlas Obscura, has a few tips and tricks to share. “The view of the plane is obstructed from the highway, so you need to keep your eyes open, or you could easily miss it. When you come across a wall of sea containers on the side of the road, you have arrived. You can see the plane by climbing up onto the containers that surround it. Or, for a better view, head slightly further down the road where you’ll find a path that leads up above the plane. You’ll have to pay a small fee to enter, as the plane is on private property,” he said.
