Bali Travel Guide

by our Indonesia expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyBali is arguably the most tranquil visitor region of the thousands of islands that make up Indonesia, which why the 2002 bomb outrage seemed so shocking. Thankfully, normality appears to be long-restored and Bali has many recent travel awards, invariably citing the friendliness of the local people. The natural beauty of the island is actively protected - it is still illegal to build ‘higher than a palm-tree’, though there are a few massive specimens of those. Bali’s capital and entry point is Denpasar, in the south with the Kuta resort virtually adjoining it on the Bukit Peninsula. The beaches there are wonderful and varied; Sanur is calmer and great for younger children, next-door is Padang Galak which with Kuta itself offers surfing and great water sports. If you can get off the beaches (not easy) Balinese culture is unique and beautiful - the temple dancers are famous and a Gamelan orchestra turns percussion instruments into celestial music of the spheres. The daily Badung market in the centre of Denpasar, is used by locals for food shopping and visitors for exquisite craftwork including fantastic batik printed fabrics. If you’re planning an excursion, take care with the calendar - the traditional Bali year has just 210 days.
