Year after year Bali maintains its reputation of being awarded as the most enchanting travel and holiday destination in the world. The secret to its consistency lies in the wide array of tourist attractions, beautiful islands and beaches and a pleasant all year round climate that makes Bali an “Ultimate Island” for most tourists.
Apart from its pristine beaches and surfing waves, its abundant nature teeming with wildlife, landscapes and resources make it an attractive place for an adventure getaway. For a more relaxed getaway, commune with nature as you experience rural life where the winds blow through the rice fields creating a domino like effect. Or get in touch with your spiritual or artistic side.
All of these and more can be found in Ubud, the spiritual and artistic center of Bali which appears like a temple with many homes made of brick walls, topped with Hindu statues. On the other hand, museum and art galleries like Neka are widespread in Ubud and preserve important collections of Balinese art.
Another place you shouldn’t miss in Ubud is the home of Balinese royalty, The Ubud Palace. Be charmed by the elaborate temple surrounding beautiful gardens and witness a traditional dance display that is performed daily at 7:30 PM. You might also want to consider going to the Negeri Propinsi Bali museum in Denpasar. It is an excellent place for you to experience the true Balinese culture.
Another standout feature of this island is the food: Balinese cuisine is a combination of sweet and spicy flavors cooked with a variety of spices and a traditional Balinese meal consists of a range of small servings of different flavors and textures that combine to form a hearty and satisfying meal.
The hospitable and kind hearted people of Bali will lift your entire trip and make it all the more a wonderful place to relax and enjoy.
