Bali - Island of God and Dreams

bali sunsetBali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it was a painted backdrop: rice paddies trip down hillsides like giant steps, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, and the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

temple bali Organised resistance to new resorts that would deplete the once-thought-inexhaustible waters surging in the hills around Ubud has emerged. There is the combination of the friendly people, the natural attractions, the great variety of things to see and do, the year-round pleasant climate, and the absence of security problems. And then there is Bali's special "magic", which is difficult to explain.

As soon as you step off the plane you might sense the difference. In the villages you'll notice the quietness and wisdom in old people's faces, and the interest and respect in the young's. Old men sit at the road side caressing their fighting cocks. Beautifully dressed women walk proudly through rice fields and forests carrying offerings on their heads to the next temple. There is the smell of flowers, and in the distance you hear the sound of gamelan music.

bali spiritsGods and spirits have been an important part of Bali's daily life for hundreds of years. Gunung Agung - Bali's holy mountain - is internationally regarded as one of the eight "Chakra" points of the world. This may be more than an coincident. Don't miss on your way up the hill's, stop by in Iseh and have a look at the famous Walter Spies House, enjoy one of the most breathtaking view in the world.

Watch out, the moment you feel the magic of this island, you're addicted for the rest of your life.
