BALI We all hear of the marvellous temples that are everywhere to see on the Island of Bali. Of course this was on my list of things to do...firstly the weather was great hot but not too steamy..so, a day by the coast was on the agenda..There is a marvellous temple to visit on the south coast called Illuwatu. I was fortunate as I asked a Canadian...more
Sighted this pura ("temple") while we were on our way to Kereneng Night Market. Picturesque in the sense that there is this huge shady tree next to it. Upon looking into the pura, we found that it could be a new pura as there were some on-going construction materials lying on the grounds of the pura and the pura looks pretty new in its structures.more

Nice, big, green "taman" (park) to hang out. Lots of activities, especially in the evening - children running and playing, joggers at the path, balloon men, snacks & drinks being sold, lovers hands in hands, parents coaching their youngs .... basically it is a place for everyone.There is a big monument with fountains - to commemorates heroic men...more
It's a huge monument at the roundabout in the centre of Denpasar - a landmark of the City. Very near to Puputan Square. "Catur" means "Chess" while "Muka" means "Face". The statue represents Lord of Four Directions, Batara Guru - which is aptly placed at the roundabout. At night, it is beautifully lighted up and at the base you will see rays of...more

Balinese are very religious and pious. "Canangs" (offerings to Gods) in the form of trays made of palm leaves, filled with fresh flowers and tidbits or boiled rice are not only placed in the pura (temples) but are placed at entrances of homes or shops, accompanied with burning joss sticks. Those that are placed at entrances are usually in the...more
Most women will carry their wares and goods on top of their heads. You will be amazed at how strong their heads and necks are as the basketful is indeed heavy and bulky. They will place a coiled-up towel or cloth on heads to support the heavy load.Upload pics latermore

DENPASSAR ..Be exceptionally careful of drug touts here ..Walking anywhere here in Denpassar especiallty around Kutas beaches touts are everywhere..To walk without being confronted is an impossibility. To stop and talk with a dealer is foolish as you will immediately be under police surveillance..Many young people come here knowing that there are...more
DENPASSAR Denpassar in Bali is like most of tropical South East Asia and one must be careful of Mosquitos. Wherever you have heat you have" bugs and bities" Always carry and use a strong Mosquito and Insect repellant when travelling anywhere up here. The risk of Dengue Fever even Malaria is a possibility in these tropical areas..In the evenings...more
BALI Bali is such a magnet for travellers especially the beach type.The surf culture here is what put Bali on the map in the first place...although there is more to Bali than the beaches.. The sun here can be unforgiving and sun protection is a must when out and about especially a day at the beach. Like anywhere here in the tropics the sun is...more
Do not expect to find cameras or colour films on sale in Denpasr Ngurah Rai International Airport !
Unique Suggestions: Unless you look for it in Kuta or the city area of Denpasar, it is better to load your analog camera with colour film and enough battery power before you fly to Denpasar.
Fun Alternatives: Bring a digital camera instead !
