The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect BALI Experience



places_to_visit_in_Bali
The name Bali is more famous than the country where it belongs to- Indonesia. This is not without credence since 80% of Indonesia’s tourists visit Bali and Bali alone. A co-teacher from the U. S. once told me that she never heard of Indonesia before but she was quite familiar with Bali. In fact, part of the reason why she decided to teach in Indonesia was to be able to travel Bali.

The perfect tropical paradise sits on the beautiful array of beaches, volcanoes, and wide expanse of temples and rice fields. While majority of Indonesia’s population has Islamic belief, Bali is the only Hindu-majority province with 83.5% adhering to Balinese Hinduism.  An interesting trivia I found out from our tourist guide was that the reason why Bali does not allow skyscraper buildings despite of being one of the top destinations in the world is because buildings can not be higher than temples as respect to their gods.

My travel to Bali was suffused with wide array of experiences which are truly unique amongst different destinations in the world.  

1. CULTURAL IMMERSION

Bali’s richness in culture could be attributed to its spirituality. A visit to different temples would give you a glimpse of how their culture and traditions are elaborately influenced by their spirituality.

Our visit to Penglipuran village is extremely unique. Many tourists visit Bali thinking of beaches but the island offers more than that. The village alone is like being transported to something so extraordinary in the world. Houses are built differently and the customs and traditions are totally so unique which made the experience more unforgettable.

2. GASTRONOMIC DELIGHT

Indonesia is well- known for its thousands of authentic cuisines and the best are found in Bali. We indulge ourselves to the unlimited choices of foods and spices which are famous in the world. There’s the ‘satay’ or marinated chicken in the skewers, nasi goreng, vast seafood made more delicious with different sauce and spices.  

3. AESTHETIC/ ARTISTIC VALUE

Bali is renowned for its distinctive arts. Even without entering museums and art exhibits, very detailed statues and other form of arts are prominently displayed all over the island. The Indonesian Film festival is held every year in Bali.

The sunrise and sunset in Bali is exceptional. You can totally lost yourself to the tropical beauty of the different beaches. There is a distinct sense, a quintessence of the authentic Balinese experience.
Our sunset experience includes visiting a beach with a temple that you can reach by traversing knee-deep water. It has also a cave with what they call as the, “holy snake”.

The corals are perfect for divers and there are myriad waves for surfers.  Shores are adorned with fine white sands which is perfect for your feet as you allowed the sun kissed your skin.

  3. I agree with you, many doesn't know about Indonesia unless we talk about earthquakes and tsunamis. And many thinks Bali is an island country.. Its just that Bali is more open for guests than other Indonesian cities.
