Balinese are very friendly and polite people. Handshaking is customary, for both men and women, on introduction and greeting, smiling is a national characteristic.
Everyone here seems to be an artist of some kind and daily offerings and rituals are a way of life.
you can find people selling painting along the legian and seminyak street.
they're good and not expensive.
if you want to bring it home, don't worry they will roll the painting and pack it for you. all kind of style of paintings
Waterbom (Waterslide) Park
Waterbom park is a must do on the Bali check list.
There are waterslides there that will keep the young and the young at heart entertained all day long.
There are speed slides, tubes slides and regular water slides.
A separate kids section has mini slides, toddler pools and water spouting play equipment.
Entrance is resonably priced (about $25 AU) and they have thought a lot about the finer details: towel hire, locker hire, cabana hire, day spa/massage on site, food and drink, clean toilets and friendly staff.
the island of god
it felt weird sitting in the hotel room, watching cnn give a travel warning - do not travel to indonesia. i wish this madness would end soon and that bali would become a happy place again. they need the tourism and its really not the same when the whole place is so quiet.
i believe wherever u go, dangers abound and if its time for u to rest in peace, u will leave this world.
