Exploring Bali – Indonesia

Bali is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or commune with the tropical creatures as you dive along coral ridges or the colorful wreck of a WWII war ship. On shore, the lush jungle shelters stone temples and mischievous monkeys. The “artistic capital” of Ubud is the perfect place to see a cultural dance performance, take a batik or silver-smithing workshop, or invigorate your mind and body in a yoga class.

You only have to hear the word Bali, and the mind itself wanders into a dreamlike place where worries are cast adrift and the sun and sand are life’s only concerns. Its an iconic island, an alien yet relaxing part of Indonesia that’s home to fascinating cultures and perfect desert-island days.Rice is Bali’s main crop. The elaborate irrigation systems encourage a cooperative way of life between the rice growers.

While you’ll be tempted to spend your entire trip lying on the beach and drinking out of coconuts with a straw (with a beer within hand grasp at the very least), there’s a whole lot more that’s worth exploring. If you’re rich and famous, hire a seaplane or a helicopter, get yourself a beach side villa and enjoy a relatively affordable life of luxury in an untouchable paradise. For us mere mortals, the dreamy underwater world on offer from the numerous dive companies – a chance to see tumbling turtles and gaudy reefs – is an equally other-worldly taste of this tropical delight.

It would be a shame to come all this way and not delve into this remarkable culture, though, something that’s easy enough to track down in the form of traditional dance performances, ancient theater customs, and plenty of must-have souvenirs like intricate wood carvings or extraordinary local clothings. There are over 20,000 temples in Bali, which means there’s plenty of wiggle room when it comes to tracking down your own and having a genuinely unique experience, something that’s well worth the effort.

It’s the natural landscape that’s given Bali her name, though, and it will be the natural landscape that will leave an indelible mark on the visitors mind. It’s not just beaches; there are towering volcanoes, verdant tropical forests full of monkeys, dramatic steep sided ravines, startling crater lakes, holy caves, fast-flowing rivers and paddy fields that seem to stretch on forever. Hire a motorbike and make your own way amongst it all, and you’ll find yourself stopping sporadically to pinch yourself, just to be sure it’s all real.

If you really want to dig deep, there are even traditional tooth filings and ceremonial cremations to take in, though they’re not for the faint hearted. Welcome to a vibrant, colorful paradise; be ready to be amazed.

Lots of people who are fond of surfing, They will pick Bali for their surfing place since Bali got so nice Beaches like Kuta and sanur,Madewi,Serangan and Uluwatu.
