Bali-Rice terrace, Indonesia

To many people, Bali is a surfer paradise. Every year they have an international surfing competition there. But for me, it is a place where I can really relax and take it easy. It is totally opposite from Singapore. Bali is not like any other Indonesia city. It is a beautiful island and the people there are majority Hindu. Balinese culture is influence by Indian. You can see this feature from the airport and all over the island. That is what makes Bali different from other places in Indonesia. Normally I stayed at Kuta area. You can see a lot of man have a flower on their ears and it is a common sight there.

Balinese are extremely friendly people and they seems happy most of the time.

Bali-Balinese performances, Indonesia
I can understand the language, because I speak Malay and it is similar to bahasa Indonesia. So I can communicate with them, unless they have a thick accent or they speak with their own Balinese language. Balinese people always have a smile on their faces. This is good for me as my doctor told me to be near people with positive vibe. ;-) If you planning to come to Bali for the warm weather and the beaches. I think a week or 10days is enough. I always recommend my friends to come to this place. If you are too lazy to move around when you are there, just get a villa or hotel near to the beach or somewhere very quiet. If you spend alot of time on the beach, don't get sunburn, it will not feel good, trust me. Do not miss the sunset, I ensure you it is something for you to talk about. The view is magnificient.

Things you like to see while you are there, Balinese dances, and this included topeng, barongan and kecak, to name a few.

They have a special theatre where they perform specially for tourist, you will enjoy it a lot, the story always about the good versus evil and of course love, very interesting performances. They have big market for shopping around Kuta but Bali is quite big, so you can move around to see the beautiful landscape at the same time. As I observed, Bali are popular with sculpture, painting, furniture and leather. Interesting for you to bring home are Batik. If you don't want to wear it, you can hang it on the wall. There are many temples you can visit, especially at Tanah Lot, a very spiritual place. The sights of Mount Agung are also great. If you looking for a nice night out to eat or a good bars, Seminyak is the area. Other well known areas popular with tourists are Sanur, Ubud and Nusa Dua.
Bali-Me in the Temples, Indonesia
There are plenty of hotel and villa in Bali that you can choose from. I don't think that Bali is expensive, infact it is very affordable, just be careful. You would like to come to Bali when they have festival. I was told Galungan and Nyepi is interesting. Please check the internet for more information. I would like to see it for myself.

There are so many things that I can experience and see in Bali. Don’t forget to get Bali coffee for souvenirs, it is a bit bitter but delicious. Bali has so many things to offer. I called Bali my paradise because I feel that I can find my peace here. You will understand me better if you been here, J.
