Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, with land area is 5,632 km² its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colorful, deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth.
About 93.18% of Bali’s population adheres to Balinese Hinduism, formed as a combination of existing local beliefs and Hindu influences from mainland Southeast Asia and South Asia.
Bali Island, the perfect holiday destination for all ages offers something for everyone. Bali offers not just various customs but also various “adrenalin pump” parks. Many exciting amusements are available in Bali, with something new opening all the time. The number of offshore and inland attraction are on the rise because many tourists want them. This tropical paradise has a unique blend of modern tourist facilities combined with wonderful shopping and a rich past and heritage. After white water rafting that has gained popularity in Bali, comes offshore rafting or ocean rafting. The more adventurous sort of amusement has now become an alternative sport for tourists. Meanwhile white water rafting is still a popular activity with trips on Ayung, Telaga Waja, Unda Rivers, etc. The tourists can refresh their mind by watching beautiful scenery along the route. Those are not enough, some of the best surfing beaches in the world can be found on the western side of the island whilst conversely the eastern side is a wonderful haven for families, with beautiful white sand beaches and gentle seas.
There are an estimated 20,000 Hindu temples (pura). But only nine tamples, which are largest and most prominent as follows: Pura Luhur Uluwatu (Uluwatu Temple), at the southern tip of Bali, is easily accessed and hence very popular, as is Tanah Lot. . Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, Pura Pasar Agung, Pura Lempuyang Luhur, Goa Lawah, Pura Masceti and Pura Luhur Batukaru. For the Balinese, the “mother temple” of Besakih on the slopes of Mt. Agung is the most important of all and sits above the nine.
The rich coral reefs around the coast, particularly around popular diving spots such as Tulamben, Amed, Menjangan or neighboring Nusa Penida, host a wide range of marine life, for instance Hawksbill Turtle, Giant Sunfish, Giant Manta Ray, Giant Moray Eel, Bumphead Parrotfish, Hammerhead Shark, Reef Shark, Barracuda and sea snakes. Dolphins are commonly encountered on the north coast near Singaraja and Lovina.
Sanur is the place to look at if you’d rather have a good beach for sunbathing and an ocean good for swimming, and aren’t really interested in nightlife beyond a good restaurant. For true isolation, consider Candi Dasa or the black sand beaches of Lovina on the north shore.
Ubud is a great place to kick back, relax and spend a few days — or a few weeks — exploring galleries, nature and other attractions. Not far from the central Bali town of Ubud is Goa Gajah, popularly known as the Elephant Cave. The cave, which is carved into a cliff face, probably dates back to at least the 11th century.
Uluwatu tample is the best place to see the sunset and after that watching Kecak Dance.
In Klungkung, on Bali’s east coast, is the Taman Gili, the “moated garden” that is all that remains of a royal palace. The open-air pavillions were once used as the royal “high courts.”
Along the narrow winding road from Lake Bratan down to Singaraja is the village of Gitgit, where you can stop and see some spectacular waterfalls. While there is very nice scenery on Bali, Gitgit is one of the few purely natural spectacles on offer, and I think perhaps the most beautiful.
Also there are many interesting place to visit.
