Amazing Bali

Bali is an amazing beach destination. The calm and rejuvenating weather is a bliss and makes you feel relaxed. On our 10 days trip to this serine place we had fun at three totally different places named as Ubud (naturally beautiful and calm), our next stop was Sanur (the place with happening bars and cafes) and the last was Nusa Dua (adventure Island) Ubud is a nice and calm place to relax, places you could visit in and around Ubud includes Monkey forest, Goa Gajah, Tanah lot temple, Bali Zoo and Safari, The Royal Palace Local Market and many More. Sanur is more of a beach relaxing plac. However, you can enjoy water sports like jet-ski ride, para sailing and take a look at the local market to buy some souverniers for those back home Nusa Dua is a Island where you can experience major water sports and also book yourself under water dives and sea walk . Around Nusa you should go to Uluwatu temple. The temple at the edge of a cliff. The sea looks amazing from here. On the way to Uluwatu you can take a dip in the famous EAT Pray Love Beach, Padong-padong Beach In all Bali is absolutely stunning destination that have something for everyone.

Good time out location, Thailand is better

Bali is a very tropical location for 7-12 days breaks where you can experience historical monuments, good climate, good beaches, and get involved in to water sports. However, if you have experienced Leave, Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Kanta, or even Langkawi before you visit Bali, you may feel a touch let down by the experience. The beaches other than a few are unclean; especially ones in Benoa and Kuta. Nusa Dua beaches are clean but not those transparent blue water beaches. There are some amazing party places in Bali and one can enjoy those. Visit Potata Head beach club on Saturday nights for clubbing and party and on other days for a romantic dinner by the sea and an infinity pool. Rock bar is kind of over rated for the price they charge. Take a resort in Kuta, Jimbaran or Seminyak if you love busy life around you or take a resort is Nusa Dua if you love calm less crowded areas.

Bali Overview

Situated between Java and Lombok, the little island of Bali is one of the 33 provinces in the Republic of Indonesia. Spread across an area of just 5, 636 square kilometers, Bali is easily accessible by regular flights from Jakarta and Singapore.

The history of Bali dates back to pre-historic times. Though not much is known about the period during which Indian traders brought Hinduism to the Indonesian archipelago, evidence shows that Bali came under Hindu influence from neighbouring Java. Later, Europeans set foot in Bali when Dutch seafarers landed here in 1597.

Enamoured by its prosperity and charm, the Dutch slowly worked towards colonising the island. Having conquered a majority of the Indonesian islands, they took over Bali after a violent struggle. By 1908 it had become part of the Dutch East India Company. The Dutch occupation over Bali was however short-lived, after the Japanese expelled them during the WWll.

Along with the other islands comprising the Indonesian archipelago, Bali gained its freedom from the Japanese rule in the year 1945 and became a part of the Republic of Indonesia. However, it took four more years for the international community to recognise the Republic of Indonesia as an independent nation.

A tropical monsoon climate coupled with the volcanic nature of its mountains makes Bali a fertile ground for rich agriculture. Surrounded by coral reefs, the island is a treasure trove, home to diverse species of flora and fauna.

The majority of the population is Balinese Hindus and practices a religion which is a blend of Hinduism, Buddhism and native tribal beliefs. Rituals and ceremonies play a vital role in the life of Balinese people.  
With nearly 20,000 temples across the island there are festivities going on throughout the year. Most of them are accompanied by dance performances depicting stories from Hindu epics like Ramayana. Gamelan, a form of Balinese percussion orchestra is also quite renowned. The main languages spoken are Balinese and Indonesian.

Though the booming tourism industry has brought in a lot of changes and improvements in the island̢۪s economy and infrastructure, Balinese people still live by their age-old beliefs, preserving their traditions to be passed on for the future generations to come.
