A mixture of Hinduism and Buddhism, Balinese culture is the best of both worlds with regards to its diversity and inclusiveness. Though the people celebrate their vibrant culture in all forms, there are certain places where a tourist can get the best glimpse of the same. Look no further!

5 Ways to Devour The Vibrant Culture That is 'Bali':

  1. Bali

Day 1. Pejeng

With ancient temples and stunning rice fields, Pejeng is where the largest single-cast bronze kettle drum in the world is kept. The drum is known as the Moon of Pejeng and also holds the distinction of being the largest known relic from Southeast Asia's Bronze Age period. You can also take the eco tour bike ride here!

Day 2. The unique paintings of Batuan

Famous for its eponymous art and painting style, Batuan is still deep rooted in raw Balinese culture. The 11th century temple, Pura Puseh, is a fascinating study of Balinese architecture and the split gate is absolutely unmissable!

Day 3. The heavenly aura of Tenganan

This place was one of the most secluded area in Bali till the 1970s. With the local arts and crafts passed through generations, Tenganan is now a true reflection of some of Bali's indigenous heritage. You can also enjoy some authentic Balinese hospitality here!

Day 4. The ancient caves of Tampaksiring

Known for the many historically significant Balinese temples, Tampaksiring is a treat mainly because of the Mount Kawi(cliffside temple) and Istana Tampak Siring, which is known for its medicinal and holy water. Words would be unfair if used to justify the beauty of this place.
