Bali

 

Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, is located east of Indonesia’s main island, Java. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bali is known for its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides.

These features provide a picturesque backdrop to Bali’s colorful, deeply spiritual culture, with regular theater and music performances and art everywhere.

Bali also provide extensive outdoors and adventure-oriented activities, including beautiful beaches and great surfing and diving.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Cultural
Temples
Bali's best-known cultural attractions are its countless Hindu temples. Each village is required by adat (customary law) to construct and maintain at least three temples: the pura puseh(temple of origin) located at the kaja (pure) side of the village, the pura desa (village temple) at the centre for everyday community activities and the pura dalem (temple of the dead) at the kelod (unclean) end. Wealthy villages may well have more than these three obligatory temples, and additionally all family compounds have a temple of some nature.

The most common and practical architectural features to be found in virtually all temples are gazebo pavilions called bales. Each has a raised seating section and either an alang-alang (grass-thatched) or tali duk (black palm fiber-thatched) roof and has a myriad of social functions. Bales can serve as a place for the gamelan orchestra to sit, as a village meeting point, host dance performances or simply be a place of rest for worshipers.
Combination
Unique Cultures
Bali has long been known for the vast role that art, culture, and religion plays in daily life. In addition to its temples in every village, gamelan and dance performances take place almost every day (and night) in some village on the island or another. These villages are set among terraced landscapes and volcanoes that are among the beautiful in the world. Bali remains Hindu as a result of the cultural exchange between Bali and India over the past 2,000 years.
Natural
Beaches
Bali is filled with beaches, ranging from hugely popular Kuta beach, surrounded by low-cost accommodations to nearby Sanur beach, local by large tourist resorts. If you want to get away from the crowds, there are plenty of options around the island.

Bali is known for its surfing, and many of its beaches have reliable waves. The southern coast at Kuta, Legian and Canggu, the Bukit Peninsula and Nusa Lembongan are the primary draws. Expert surfers usually head for the big breaks off the Bukit Peninsula, while novices will find the gentler, sandy areas between Kuta and Legian to be good places to learn and practice.
