Cities[ edit ] Denpasar — a bustling city, the administrative centre and transport hub of the island but not a major tourist destination Candidasa — a quiet coastal town, the Bali Aga and gateway to the east coast Kuta — surfer central, by far the most heavily developed area in Bali.
Great place to enjoy the beach, snorkelling, diving and eating fish. The tourists are so many, but all the beautiful spots are worth it. A lot of famous people go there on vacation, that's why tourism has gone up since a few years and why there's a lot of pictures!
The word "paradise" is used a lot in Bali and not without reason. The combination of friendly, hospitable people, a magnificently visual culture infused with spirituality and not least spectacular beaches with great surfing and diving have made Bali Indonesia's unrivaled number one tourist attraction.
Eighty percent of international visitors to Indonesia visit Bali and Bali alone. The popularity is not without its flip side— like many places in the island's South, once paradisiacal Kuta has degenerated into a congested warren of concrete with touts and scammers extracting a living by overcharging tourists.
The island's visibility has also drawn the unwanted attention of terrorists in and ; however Bali has managed to retain its magic. Bali is a Bukit awar essay destination with something for everyone, and though heavily travelled, it is still easy to find some peace and quiet if you like.
Avoid the South of the island if you want a more traditional and genuine Balinese experience. A consideration is the tourist season and Bali can get very crowded in August and September and again at Christmas and New Year.
Australians also visit during school holidays in early April, late June and late September, while domestic tourists from elsewhere in Indonesia visit during national holidays. Outside these peak seasons, Bali can be surprisingly quiet and good discounts on accommodation are often available.
Modest dress is expected in Bali. Although bikinis are fine on the beaches and in hotel swimming pools, they are not appropriate while shopping, eating in restaurants.
History[ edit ] Sunset at Tanah Lot Temple which dates from the 15th century. The first Hindus arrived in Bali as early as BC, but the unique culture which is so apparent to any current day visitor to Bali hails largely from neighbouring Javawith some influence from Bali's distant animist past.
The rule of the Majapahit Empire resulted in the initial influx of Javanese culture, most of all in architecture, dance, painting, sculpture and the wayang puppet theatre.
All of this is still very apparent today. The very few Balinese who did not adopt this Javanese Hindu culture are known today as the Bali Aga "original Balinese" and still live in the isolated villages of Tenganan near Candidasa and Trunyan on the remote eastern shore of Lake Batur at Kintamani.
With the rise of Islam in the Indonesian archipelago, the Majapahit Empire in Java fell and Bali became independent near the turn of the 16th century.
The Javanese aristocracy found refuge in Bali, bringing an even stronger influx of Hindu arts, literature and religion. Divided among a number of ruling rajas, occasionally battling off invaders from now Islamic Java to the west and making forays to conquer Lombok to the east, the north of the island was finally captured by the Dutch colonialists in a series of brutal wars from to Southern Bali was not conquered untiland eastern Bali did not surrender until In both andmany Balinese chose death over disgrace and fought en-masse until the bitter end, often walking straight into Dutch cannons and gunfire.
This manner of suicidal fighting to the death is known as puputan. Victory was bittersweet, as the images of the puputan highly tarnished the Dutch in the international community. Perhaps to make up for this, the Dutch did not make the Balinese enter into a forced cultivation system, as had happened in Java, and instead tried to promote Balinese culture through their policy of Baliseering or the "Balinisation of Bali".
Bali became part of the newly independent Republic of Indonesia in Inthe military seized power in a CIA-backed coup, and state-sanctioned anti-communist violence spread across Indonesia. In Bali, it has been said that the rivers ran red with the reprisal killings of suspected communists—most estimates of the death toll say 80, or about five percent of the population of Bali at the time.
The current chapter in Bali's history began in the seventies when intrepid hippies and surfers discovered Bali's beaches and waves, and tourism soon became the biggest income earner. Despite the shocks of the terrorist attacks in andthe magical island continues to draw crowds, and Bali's culture remains as spectacular as ever.
Religion[ edit ] Ubiquitous canang sari offerings Unlike any other island in largely Muslim Indonesia, Bali is a pocket of Hindu religion and culture. Every aspect of Balinese life is suffused with religion, but the most visible signs are the tiny offerings canang sari, or sesajen found in every Balinese house, work place, restaurant, souvenir stall and airport check-in desk.
These leaf trays are made daily and can contain an enormous range of offering items: They are set out with burning incense sticks and sprinkled with holy water no less than three times a day, before every meal. Don't worry if you step on one, as they are placed on the ground for this very purpose and will be swept away anyway But you better not step on one on purpose, because - as Balinese believe - it'll give you bad luck!
Balinese Hinduism diverged from the mainstream well over years ago and is quite radically different from what you would see in India.Buluh Awar.
