The Balinese Hindu religion necessitates a traditional caste system though it has never been as dissentious as its Indian ancestor. This is mostly due to the fact that over 90% of Balinese belong to the lowest ‘Sudra’ caste, and in India would have been seen as ‘untouchable’. Given their dominance such attitudes in Bali would not be realistic. However, inter-marriage stays rare and discouraged. The world is chock full of destinations that are all worthy of consideration when it’s time to make holiday plans. There are not many places, however, that can compare to a particular island in the Indonesian archipelago. Bali travel melds adventure, history and wonder into a single experience that is virtually certain to create memories to last a lifetime.
When traveling in Bali it is not hard to see how complicated the Balinese society is. Their daily lives are intertwined with religion, making it a society with many rules of conduct. Meeting with the Balinese – Time is not a big issue as it might be in other countries. If you are meeting up with a Balinese, don’t be upset if he or she arrives about half an hour late. This is normal in Bali and he or she probably expects that same from you.
The history – Bali has a history that dates back thousands of years. Evidence of its most early inhabitants can be found in a variety of sites all over the island. From the temples in the Mount Agung complex to the wonderment of the Tanah Lot, visitors here will learn much about the peoples and cultures that have touched Bali throughout the ages. With its strong ties to the Hindu religion, holidaymakers will discover that many of the island’s most splendid outdoor attractions have also served as places connected deeply to religion through the ages.
Bali, an Indonesian island, is a great place for travelers who want amazing beaches, friendly citizens, and breathtaking scenery. With over three millions inhabitants, Bali is home to some of the greatest artwork in the world. From dancing to sculpting and painting, this island provides a wonderful easel for the most creative. Although there are hundreds of hot spots on the island, the best tourist locations are Kuta, Sanur, and
Seminyak. If you are looking for a warm beach atmosphere, Kuta is the way to go. During your travel, it is important to note that the southern
areas of Bali are warmer. There are dozens of lavish hotels right along the beach. These white sand beaches are amazing, especially with the
abundance of coral reefs and marine life. It is a great romantic place to relax!
Bali is one of the Spa Capitals of the world where you can indulge yourself in a spa treatment at very reasonable prices. If you want to spoil yourself then you can sample from an elaborate menu of lulur massages, rice-paste exfoliations, flower petal aroma baths and indulgent cream baths. I would suggest you check some of the local spas that work spa therapies into your holiday schedule on a daily basis. And don’t forget the traditional drinks made of herbs and roots– ‘jamu’, a local Balinese remedy for fatigue, headaches, aching bones or chills.
