Bali is a piece of tropical land  that seems to have a magnet in every heart.  A feeling that it is difficult to understand unless experience but once visited you are surely compelled to come back and may even want to stay forever. Maybe its  beauty, maybe the friendliness of the people, or maybe even the influence from the spirits that certainly abide on this place have been pulling you into its power. Be aware…!

Bali goes under many names. Lots call it as the “island of the gods”, the “ island of the thousand temples”, the “last paradise”, the “dawning of the world” and the “centre of the universe”. More names for this truly beautiful tropical island are inhabited by the  remarkably artistic people who have created a dynamic society with its unique arts and ceremonies. Bali has two famous names specifically in the cultural issues ; the island of the Gods means one God with lots of manifestations because of His responsibilities and the island of the thousand temples which give an idea that in Bali you absolutely find at least 33,000 temples.

Bali is small, just 140 km by 80 km and lies between Java - the most highly populated and influential of all the islands - and Lombok - one of the quieter and moderately slower paced islands -. Like many islands, Bali has developed a world of its own. It does not only capture what is special about Indonesia but also has its own uniqueness.

Daily life in Bali is culturally linked to satisfying and appeasing the Gods, spirits and demons in the midst of breathtaking panoramas of cultivated rice terraces, impressive volcanoes and pristine beaches. Bali’s main volcano, Gunung Agung with the mother temple “Besakih” on its slope, is still active and sometimes explosive and considered sacred among the local people as it is believed to be the centre of the universe.

Lying just 8 degrees at south of the Equator, Bali can boast a tropical climate with in just two seasons - dry and rainy - a year and with  average temperature of around 28 - 32 degrees Celsius. The period of April – October is supposed as the dry season, especially gets cooling in July and August even sunny and the monsoon season is commonly in the period of November – March (sometimes unpredictable). During the monsoon, it rains almost every day but not in all day.

Economically and culturally, Bali is one of the most important islands of Indonesia. Agriculture is very important and rice is the main crop grown on the irrigated and terraced hillsides. Other crops are such as corn, sweet potato, beans, sugar cane, coffee, coconut, tobacco, spices, fruits and vegetables. Cattle are also raised, especially cows, ducks, chickens and pigs. The Balinese are talented and skillful artisans, particularly in wood and stone-carving, painting and fashioning objects of tortoiseshell, gold, silver and other metals. They are also very skillful in weaving cloth of gold and silver threads called “Songket” and as well as embroidering silk and cotton clothing. The Balinese are noted for their traditional dances and shows and the distinctive music of the gamelan. Bali has a whole range of different environments and activities for supporting their making living. All of them are mainly exhibited and offered to the tourist. “Tourism is the main industry in this cultural Bali”.

As one of the twenty six provinces of Indonesia Republic, Bali is administratively divided into eight regencies and Denpasar becomes the capital city since 1965. Politically, Bali is part of the Republic, but moreover socially, it is strongly influenced by the Kingdoms that ever ruled on this earth. Bali is complex with its multi-religions but Hinduism is the nomination of 3,5 millions people.
