Have a Memorable Vacation With the Right Bali Beach Villas

The island is famous for its natural and cultural environment whether in the areas close to the sea or further inland. However, tourists from less warmer countries want to have the optimum level of tropical experience so that it is recommended that they stay in one of the Bali Beach Villas. When one is searching through the Internet, one will easily find a Bali Villa Rental service but of course one should choose a place that suited best with one’s needs and preference. But generally Bali Beach Villas can help their guests achieve the best tropical holiday vacation.

There are numerous sea shore environments that have been transformed into comfortable tourist spots in the island. Some of the most well known spots are Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Petitenget and Canggu. Bali Beach Villas in these areas offer their guests quick access to the white sand. One can ask for information from a Bali Villa Rental to make sure that the distance from a certain resort will not be too far from these sea shore environment. However, Bali Villas for Rent which are located rather further from the sea shore usually also have convenient access to the spots because reliable roads had been developed by the local government.

However, further consideration is still necessary. One should list one’s needs and ask for a confirmation from the Bali Villa Rental for facilities like children friendly facilities and residence for seniors and disabled people. Staying in Bali Beach Villas will be perfect if such facilities can be ensured since before the departure. For travelers with special health problems like asthma or allergy, asking for the presence of health facilities nearest to the Bali Villas for Rent should be a first time measure. Some of these places have employed a special doctor and health care staffs though.

To make sure that the culinary needs are satisfied when they are staying at their Bali Beach Villas, it is wise for them to obtain reliable information about the aspect. Travelers should ask a Bali Villa Rental whether the service will include breakfast, launch and dinner package or not. Most of the Bali Villas for Rent are providing these services though, but it does not mean that guests cannot have the chance to try the local and international culinary culture which is present abundantly in the island. For this purpose, one should try and explore the lines of places to eat in the luxurious Seminyak area or the sea side restaurants at Jimbaran.

Of course travelers should not put the sea shore environment as the sole destination even when they are staying in one of the Bali Beach Villas. The island is too rich with other amazing spots too dear to neglect. That is why they have to ask the Bali Villa Rental service about the access to inland spots like Ubud, Bedugul or the enchanting Monkey Forest. Most Bali Villas for Rent are located near to the major roads that lead to those inland destinations though so that a journey can be done easily.

The Surf Industry – Is the Surf Industry Changing the Way We Do Business?

First off, this article is completely unbiased. I am only one person and this is my expert opinion on how our culture has evolved. These days the big deal is surfing. This last year the board sports industry combined to yield over 7.25 billion dollars.

That is a huge benchmark for such a small industry.

So what does this tell you? A couple of things to think about:

1. Maybe most people don’t actually know what it is like to ride in the tube.

2. Some of us will never rock a 900 in the half-pipe at the local skate park.

3. There may be great waves up and down the Outer Banks of North Carolina right now, but to most people the season is over.

So how is it that the board sports industry is so profitable?

While you and I are sitting at home getting ready for the football season, there are a few brave men and women out hunting for great waves around the world. They do this for business and pleasure. Don’t be fooled, it is not an easy life to sign into.

These few people are providing the images on your Credit Card commercial; they are giving input to the design of the tee shirt you are wearing right now, and they are filming the next wave you want to travel to for the ride of your life; they get you stoked. Their cultural input (on the clothes you are wearing) is helping them stay motivated while spending 1000’s of hours on planes, traveling the globe hunting for the perfect waves.

Our culture has shifted we are now looking to the real Road Warriors, the people who are providing content for our visual pleasure. These heroic few help guide us in our decisions of what it means to be an individual, express who you are, to be dressed up, to look business casual, or how to dress for a night out on the town. Look around how many people are wearing a tee-shirt that looks nice enough to wear under a sport coat?

The road warriors of today go to an office most of dream of. They are starting to define our office settings. Only from our cubes do we imagine ourselves to be on Ehukai Beach.

I am glad that there may be a shift in culture through the transformation of the surf industry, we are now starting to look at each other as a whole, not as individuals. When I sit down at a meeting to discuss the latest in IP LAW I am not judged by my attire but by what come out of my mouth, my actions, and my morals. Has an industry transformed the attitudes of business into a new Golden Age? Can we now go into a business meeting and be judged by our business ethics and market understanding once again? I sure hope so.

Three Miraculous Things in Bali

Many foreigners who visit Bali usually said that Bali is a magical place-a palace or kingdom for goddesses and gods-which has never bored anyone who comes to visit the island. It is even stated as one of the most popular tourist destinations and, not only stopped to those statements; they also remarked Bali is more well-known than Indonesia itself-the country where Bali becomes the part of its region. The island is even awarded as the world best island by The International Travel Magazine!

Bali is divided into nine regencies (eight regencies and one municipality) with its own capital, i.e. Buleleng, Jembrana, Karangasem, Badung, Denpasar, Gianyar, Klungkung, and Bangli. These districts have several places which you would enjoy to visit-and, actually, they have different kind of places to be offered. Some are for traditional thingies and customs (with its Bali Aga-original people in Bali-practice) ‘though they are also some ordinary customs which you can see everywhere in Bali, some others could be done for natural recreation (beaches, mountains, lakes, etc), the modern lifestyles mixture with the conventional living (foreigners love this part), its history (with the temples, statues, and some kingdoms), and so on.

There are actually three miraculous places to visit which always make people feel fascinated of this island-because they are very wonderful! They are the beaches, the temples, and the traditional villages.

I. BEACHES

If you want to visit beaches in Bali, there are some beaches spread at all parts of the island, as follows:

1. In Badung, you could go to Kuta Beach, Suluban Beach, and Nusa Dua Beach.

2. In Denpasar, there are Sanur Beach and Benoa Harbor.

3. For Karangasem District, we have Padang Bai Beach and Jemeluk Beach.

4. For Tabanan District, there is only one beach, Soka Beach.

5. In Jembrana, there are Medewi Beach, Delod Brawah Beach, and Perancak Beach.

6. In Buleleng, there is one beautiful beach, Lovina Beach.

From these beaches, the most favorite based on the votes by the visitors is Lovina Beach in Buleleng, Many people love to see dolphins there, especially when they jump out of the water and spin at the air, usually in the morning. After that, many foreigner people said that they love Kuta Beach-because along the pedestrian road, there are several antique shops which offered some cute stuff with a cheap price (unfortunately, it only happens for Balinese people, because we can bid price to the sellers).

II. TEMPLES

There are some temples which become the favorite places for foreigner, such as:

1. Uluwatu Temple, Taman Ayun Temple, and Pucak Mangu Temple in the District of Badung.

2. Jagatnatha Temple, Maospahit Temple, Petilan Pangerebongan Temple, and Sakenan Temple in Denpasar.

3. Penataran Sasih Temple, Kebo Edan Temple, Pusering Jagat Temple, Mangening Temple, Pengulingan Temple, and Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) Temple in the District of Gianyar.

4. Kehen Temple and Puncak Penulisan Temple in the District of Bangli.

5. Taman Sari Temple, Watu Klotok Temple, Panti Timbrah Temple, and Goa Lawah Temple in the district of Klungkung.

6. Besakih Temple in the district of Karangasem.

7. Alas Kedaton Temple, Rambut Siwi Temple, and Ulun Danu Beratan Temple in the District of Tabanan.

8. Brahma Vihara-Arama Temple, Meduwe Karang Temple, Beji Temple, Dalem Jagaraga Temple, Pulaki Temple, Ponjok Batu Temple, and Dalem Sangsit Temple in Singaraja.

Those temples have their own myths behind the construction. Yet, most of the people love the myths of Kebo Edan Temple and Rambut Siwi Temple. The myths usually come along with a very deep meaning.

III. TRADITIONAL VILLAGES

There are several amazing villages with its traditional way of life in Bali, such as Mengwi, Batubulan, Mas, Belega and Bona, Sebatu and Pujung, Peliatan, Celuk, Batu Kaang, Thingan, and Kamasan. But my most favorite consisted of only two places id est Trunyan Village and Tenganan Village. At these two villages, the most original people in Bali still live and do their traditions/practices-at these two places, you can find dead body is arranged under trees for the process of decomposing. Unlike people in other places in Bali who do cremation for the dead body, Trunyanese and Tengananese still maintain this tradition adopted from India.

There are some other interesting things in Bali. I know I could not mention all of those things here in my article. Actually, there are also many other websites over the internet which are very useful and could bring you directly into the real atmosphere of Bali. The last but not the least, I wish you will enjoy your days in Bali-at the time you visit it after reading this article.
