Everything Interesting about Bali!
Bali, The Land of Gods
Bali is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, art forms and landscapes. To experience this unearthly destination that continues to be one of the top travel destinations over the years, one must visit it, and not just look at it in pictures. As Bali has been in my bucket list for a while now, I decided to do my bit of research on it and share with my readers whatever I found most intriguing. This is one destination that cannot be missed and can usually be visited at any time of the year, but if you wish to enjoy the natural bounty of the nation without the thronging travellers, June to September might be the ideal time for a visit. Bali is becoming a popular destination for newlywed couples going on their honeymoon. June to September season is also best for honeymooners as the vibe of the place is quite romantic.
To be in one of the most soulful and beautiful parts of Indonesia is truly a treat to the self and this can be experienced in the scenically diverse Bali which is enriched with sights of mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls, canyons, beaches, reefs and much more. This cluster of islands that constitutes the province of Bali is an idyllic tropical destination, attracting millions of travellers every year! Bali’s rich culture and heritage are strongly influenced by Indian culture, particularly Hinduism. This spiritual side to Bali gives it the name ‘Land of Gods’. Balinese architecture is vernacular and traditional, giving it a very earthy vibe. It aptly signifies the harmony between people and nature.
People of Bali
It’s a renowned fact that Balinese people are some of the most hospitable and friendly people, despite the language barriers that they face when communicating with travellers. At times, they go out of their way to make visitors feel comfortable, opening up their homes, cuisines and lifestyles and that’s why tourism has flourished over the years in Bali. They are very friendly and extremely community-oriented. They appreciate it when visitors try to speak a word or two in their language or traditionally greet them or when you greet them in a namaste hand position, saying “Om Swastiastu” or “May peace be with you”.
Did you know
- The world’s most expensive coffee comes from Bali, called Kopi Luwak that is extracted from undigested beans excreted by the elusive Civet cat!
- Balinese New Year called Nyepi is celebrated in silence. It is a day reserved for self-reflection and anything that disrupts it is restricted. This rule applies to each person, even travellers who are on the island
- Besakih Temple, also known as Bali’s ‘Mother Temple’ is over 1,000 years, sitting on a 1,000 metres high slopes of Mount Agung. Contrary to famous Instagram photos, there is no water body to reflect the gates of heaven!
