Denpasar, Bali’s capital city, has many community temples called Pura.
One is the Pura Jagatnatha Museum dedicated to Sang Hyang Widi Wasa, the Supreme
The statue of a turtle and two dragons, so prevalent in all temples, means the
foundation of the world.
The Museum offers a variety of prehistoric and modern art, whereas its architectural
design resembles that of a palace. A yearly art festival is organized between
June and July, with performances, exhibitions, art contest, etc.
Bali is a great place. The locals are very sweet and accommodating. HOWEVER, the traffic is not good. Spent hours waiting in traffic due to construction on the bypass between Kuta and Sanur (had 2 very minor accidents - one taxi hit us from behind, no damage but still. A small toyota took out our side mirror, he didn't want to share the road - cost us nothing but glue). Who starts a construction project during the rainy season?? (I have a p/t home in Nusa Dua so I'm stuck in traffic if I ever want to go ANYWHERE.) 2 lanes turned into 6...really as the Balinese have no sense of order in ... More traffic. Motorcycles always go to the front of the line and plug up the intersections as well as weaving in and out of traffic. two lanes always turn into 3 or 4 at intersections. People drive on the wrong side to get around the traffic and the signals are very long giving plenty of time for folks behind you to squeeze in and cut you off. i think it would flow better if they were of a shorter duration. What used to be cheap is now very expensive. Coffee bars cost more than in the USA and so is the breakfast food. I love Bali and come every year but it is very frustrating to an American used to a certain order about things.
This was such a great activity. We were collected and driven to breakfast with a stunning view of the volcanoes and lake. Then off we went for our ride (wear sunscreen!!!). The locations we rode through and villages we saw were beautiful. I hadn't been on a bike for about 20 years but it was easy enough and the guides were so helpful. We were able to take it at our own pace and the ride finished with a delicious lunch over looking beautiful rice fields. The whole team involved with Bali Hai were so friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour for anybody who is keen for a pleasant ride in a beautiful area of Bali.
Love it. Bali is an amazing place that i would recommend anyone to at the very least experience. Regarding safety i really do believe it is up to the induvidual to provide safety for yourself, if you do stupid things then stupid things will happen to you. Also i would recommend eating local food and doing local things... what is the fun in doing what every other tourist is doing?? Other then that please be respectful.
Ubud is a town on the Indonesian island of Bali in Ubud District, located amongst rice paddies and steep ravines in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency. One of Bali's major arts and culture centres, it has developed a large tourism industry.
Ubud has a population of about 30,000 people, but it is becoming difficult to distinguish the town itself from the villages that surround it.
- Very relaxing place to visit/holiday
- Local people are very kind and good-natured and always keen to help you
- According to the beliefs of many Balinese, it is their spiritual responsibility that tourists/visitors enjoy their stay in Bali. If you are happy, they are happy
- Incredible range of cuisines for very little cost - includes both local and international foods

The people are friendly, helpful and eager to talk of their Island. You can visit the temples with a guide who is extremely well educated with languages so you can understand the history and learn about the religions.
We have visited Bali many times and never been disappointed.
Awesome.. great island.. i hope our government and society can better work together to promote this island we pride.. very friendly residents to the tourist who come.. hopefully this island can be more atractive to foreign tourists especially.. bravo bali i love you full..
Bali has something for everyone, from budget travelers to luxury high end and everything in between - covering accommodation and food/drink.
Loads to do - if you are bored in Bali and can't find something to fill your time, then there's something wrong with you.
