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.

Three Fabulous Ways To Explore The Beauty Of Bali

Bali has long been known as a tropical paradise for anyone who wants to get away from it all to enjoy sun soaked days and balmy nights stirred by ocean breezes. But how do you know which kind of Bali travel package is right for you and your traveling companion or family? It depends on what you want to do and see on your trip as well as the degree of privacy you prefer. There are three excellent options available through travel agencies.

All Inclusive Bali Break

If you know how much money you can spend on your holiday and want to keep unexpected expenses to a minimum, consider an all-inclusive Bali break. These are options that will include all of your expenses, including items not normally counted into the price quote for a holiday such as food and drinks. Although in the past these programs were limited in terms of where and when you could eat your meals, more recent all inclusive holiday packages give you several options you can choose from for wining and dining. If you want a holiday plan that gives you everything while being easy to budget for, this could be a good plan for you.

Bali Group Tours

Are you longing to visit this tropical paradise and learn about the culture and heritage of the region? The professional guides who lead group tours are a wealth of fascinating information about the culture and history of this tropical paradise. Group tours are also a great idea for anyone who enjoys the company of others from around the world. When you take a group tour, you’ll meet others who share your love of history as you travel from tourist attractions to the natural beauty of the beaches and beyond. If you like a structured holidays that takes you to a variety of locations with a knowledgeable tour guide, you’ll love group tours.

Independent Trips

Every year you can find more travel agencies offering unique independent trips for individuals who are truly adventurers. An independent trip allows for plenty of flexibility while catering to your needs with a private guide and your own driver so that you can choose where you want to go at a moment’s notice. You’ll enjoy the freedom of traveling independently and deciding every step of your itinerary, including where you’ll stay, how long you’ll spend in each location and what you’ll eat and drink. The guides for these trips usually have extensive, first-hand knowledge of the region and have been living there for years. If you prefer a “do your own thing” holiday but want the security and convenience of having a private guide available at all times, an independent trip will give you lots of local flavour while providing the amenities you crave.

Whether you want an all inclusive Bali holiday at a secluded resort or you want to discover the nightlife of the region with twenty of your new close friends, talking to an experienced travel agency is the best way to ensure a trip that is truly memorable.
