    A Great Statue of GarudaWisnuKencana

    by meiyergani Written Aug 19, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a big Statue in Bali, with its height 156 meters, probably the highest statue in the world? i am not so sure, the statue is still under construction and is the art works of Balinese artist I. Nyoman Nuarta, what we seen now is an incomplete one, so if you come to Bali, don't miss to see the statue.

    Nature

    Bali is a very fertile island thanks to irrigation and volcanic soil. Nature is generous and you will be able to taste some nice exotic sweet fruits as the snake fruit (the scaly skin is like a snake) or the smelly but tasty durian. Enjoy the scenery.

    Rafting - refreshing adventure

    by Tripack Updated Jan 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    I really enjoy rafting since my great Australian rafting expecience on the Tully river. So Bali offer me another opportunity to ride 16km of white water on Telagawaja river with numerous rapids and small waterfall... what an exhilarating and refreshing adventure. No timeout during 2 hours as you will need to paddle, reverse paddle, bump, scream, laugh, fishing some overboard paddler as I did... no worries you will be safe with your experienced and very professional guide. At the end you will be rewarded by a last uphill walk accross rice fields before taking a warm shower at the camp base and enjoying a large buffet to retreive forces.

    So let's go rafting!

    Ready to paddle! Shower time! Rafting in the jungle! The camp base

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Balinese underwater world is amazing. Around Bali you will find some great diving spot as Kubu, Tumlaben, US Liberty wreck, Amed, Blue Lagoon, Padang BaiNusa, Shark Point, Candidasa, Nusa Penida, Manta Point...

    Colorful soft coral garden contrast with the black volcanic sand and impressive volcanic walls (called drop off) full of marine life. My great day & night dives let me meet many of locals as anemone, clams, ringed piperfish, scorpion fish, blue spotted stingray, puffer fish, nudibranch, clown "Nemo" fish, lion fish, box fish, pigmy seahorse, trumpet fish, garden eel, bird wrasse, angel fish, octopus, cattle fish, moray, barraccuda, spider crab, orang outan shrimp, arlequin shrimp, humphead parrot fish, napoleon, mola mola (sunfish), manta and even an unexpected swordfish!

    The "cleaning station" at the house reef of my resort was one of my favourite dive... just let your hand be taken care by dozens of little friendly shrimps for a free funny and tickle mancure ;-)

    So Dive now, work later ;-)

    VISIT ULUWATU

    by DennyP Updated Sep 10, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I was staying in south of Bali in Kuta Beach just after my arrival I was advised that a good place to visit was The Hindu Temple at Aluwatu..I decided along with two friends that it was really cheap to get a taxi on a "day hire" the rate was very inexpensive...also we could stop along the way and see other places of interest...here also the Taxi driver was not only helpful but great company..The cost for the day was very inexpensive divided three ways and also the hire rate will depend on your bargaining skills.The large Hindu Temple of Uluwatu is located precariously on the cliff top and makes for a wonderful photograph.
    When at the Temple there is a modest entry fee and that is for the hire of a "sarong" that ALL visitors must wear at the temple.There also is a small fee for entry to the site and also for the guide who will show you the various points of interest and who carries a slingshot to scare off the troublesome monkeys that are in abundance here...

    A word of WARNING here also to be very careful of the monkeys here..they will jump at you and steal anything that they can quickly grab and then run off with...so..hats,sunglasses, jewelry,wrist watches,cameras, ANYTHING.. and also their favourite is your thongs (The rubber footwear type)..these animals also are very aggressive and they bite..be very careful as some have rabies..if bitten seek immediate medical attention..

    THE TEMPLE ON THE CLIFFTOP THE CLIFF WALK TO THE TEMPLE AND FIREDANCE HAVE A COLD REFRESHING COCONUT MILK DRINK ONE OF THE MAIN OFFENDERS.. SO MANY MONKEYS HERE...BE VIGILANT..

    flying, jumping, climbing with Miss T

    by Chellenz Updated Jan 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So we decided to go to the Bali tree tops rope course & when we arrived we were so excited & we were not disapointed. We got our gear & off we went climbed up & did the medium level thanks to the smart guy that said we could start there...oh well off we went. all the Drivers were down the bottom laughing & joking as there guests sweat, struggled & made there way around the course. As I climbed up the ladder all was good thinking this will be fun got halfway up and got to a lose step and was like ooohhh maybe not a good idea...so stupid if I was a kid I wouldn't even care...damn common sense well i kept going and so glad I did. Got through the first one the easy one got to the 2nd one half way through I look down and say to Suka stop laughing its not funny I don't know that this was such a good idea....as I look at the end of this one I see a flying fox oh yeah baby bring it on....off I went to get to my flying fox... hooked on my carabeanas and my pully and off I went so much fun. Continued on we went through swinging log things clambered across climbing nets but the best part was the adrenalin and the flying foxs. The funniest thing was when Miss T said to me just grab the net with your feet at the end of the flying fox...well the last one she missed the net and ended up having to pull herself up with her hands if I was on the ground already I would have rolled around laughing but I was still climbing down!! Was a great time and would do it again...Got the best bruise every and laughed myself silly...well worth a try if you can do it!

    just finshed and getting off the net. Miss T just finished the course. me flying....lol holding on man talk about feel the burn..lol Thats the way miss T Hold on.

    Healing in Bali

    by balisunshine Written Mar 4, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With Bali’s mystical powers,
    you might just get the urge
    to do a little good for yourself.

    A cleanse?
    Or a DETOX
    to refresh yourself internally?
    Why not?

    After a few consultations,
    and following the advice
    on holistic remedies
    of a local nutritionist,
    I myself am so thankful
    for the wonderful improvements
    that I feel and see in my health
    and on my body.

    Not only have I witness and lived
    a major weight loss, glowing skin,
    and an improvement on my health issues,
    but I have also witnessed a friend of mine,
    cure herself of a tumor of which
    the western doctors had advised her to operate on.

    A large part of the treatment is based on nutrition
    and another part on holistic remedies.

    Despite on how intense you want to go for it,
    you will definitely walk out of the consultation
    learning and understanding a lot more
    about how your body relies on good nutrition.

    You will also learn how to replace
    the bad habits with good ones.

    Consultations with Liat Solomon
    at the time of my visit
    cost 600,000 Rp and last 2-3 hours.

    I feel soooo good!!!

    VISIT THE HARD ROCK CAFE BALI

    by DennyP Written Sep 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right across the road from the Northern end of Kuta beach is The Hard Rock Cafe Bali easy to see with the large guitar that stands out front....being a really hot day this was just the place for a cold beer and as I always do my best to visit any Hard Rock Cafe in any city wherever I may be.
    This was on my list of things to do here in Kuta Beach....as usual with any Hard Rock Cafe the staff are always extremely courteous and after a quick chat I exchanged a few spare "Sydney" guitar pins that I was carrying for that reason...The bar here has a huge wooden guitar above the bar and is the standout when you walk in although at the moment under renovation I think the interior is going to be changed somewhat..There is a large amount of musical memorabilia located within the dining and bar area and as is the case with all Hard Rocks, they certainly have their share of some great memorabilia on display here...I took many photos and then visited the Rock Shop to buy my Bali Hard Rock Cafe guitar pin for my collection.

    Celuk for Silver

    by easterntrekker Written Aug 9, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Next on our agenda was a stop at Celuk , known for its gold and silver works. We visited three of the seemingly hundreds of manufacturers/shops.

    For years Celuk was known as the place where craftsmen made bowls for religious ceremony in silver leave called " bokoran " It wasn’t however until the 1930s when gold and silversmiths arrived in Celuk.

    The work they do is wonderful. Many of the designs are truly unique. The prices listed are automatically reduced by 50% and a bit more can be had with a bit of haggling .

    I bought a silver and pearl set of earrings with a beautiful intricate design for $28.00. My favorite shop was Semadi Gold and Silver

    The Wood Carvers of Mas

    by easterntrekker Written Aug 11, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mas
    The village of Mas lies on the main road, 20 km to the north of Denpasar and 6 km before Ubud. The village is known for its wood carvers. We’ve seen many wood carvers throughout our travels but these are some of the best. We fell in love with a wall hanging of an intricately carved forest scene with elephants and gods. But after much discussion we decided against it as we were unsure which wood was used. Canada has very strict laws regarding importing exotic wood. One thing to note is the various colours have to do with the shade of shoe polish being used. Don’t pay extra for “mahogany” or “ebony”.
