Scenic Indonesian Island
Bali is one of the world's most popular and scenic tourist
destinations. Filled with history, Balinese culture and natural beauty, we loved exploring this magical island. Today it's even more popular then ever, thanks to the 2010 blockbuster movie "Eat Pray Love" starring Julia Roberts.
Bali is famous for its magnificent
temples (there are thousands of them), breathtaking landscapes, stunning wood-carvings and stone sculptures, Balinese paintings, batik clothing,
religious ceremonies, fabulous Indonesian cuisine, lush picturesque hillside rice paddies, and miles of beautiful
And no visit to Bali would be complete without seeing one of the island's colorful traditional Balinese dances — the Kecak Dance, the Fire Dance and the Saghyang Dance.
Ubud — Tegalalang Rice Paddies
Ubud, located in the mountains of central Bali, is considered the arts and
cultural hub of the island — home to wonderful palaces, Hindu temples, museums, and talented artisans. Be sure to visit Ubud's bustling outdoor marketplace — fun for shopping and people-watching! Enjoy traditional Balinese
dance performances — this was one of the highlights of our trip to Bali. Another was our visit to Ubud's scenic Tegalalang Rice Terraces — truly one of the most spectacular sights in Bali.
Kuta and Kuta Beach
Kuta is located in southern Bali — it's sandy beaches,
beautiful sunsets, surfing, nightlife, restaurants and shopping
one of Indonesia's major tourist meccas.
