    Eat the local food

    I can never understand why people travel thousands of miles and order the food they eat set home . The whole point to my travelling is to experience the local cuisine not eat what I cook at home. In Bali the essential foods to try are satays , nasi goreng, mie goreng and spring rolls . They are on all the menus and I have to try them all

    Buy a Bali SIM card

    by nezz Updated Feb 15, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As soon as you can buy a local SIM card. Stick it in any old unlocked phone. Don't bother upsetting your good mobile. This way if it gets stolen you won't be sad or upset. Local sms are so cheap. Great way to keep in touch

    Noella Roos is a Dutch, classically trained painter and drawer. She studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (The Netherlands), Antwerp (Belgium) and Athens (Greece). Noella Roos has exhibited in many cities throughout Europe (Italy, The Netherlands, and Belgium) and Asia (Hong Kong, India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and Korea) and has been given painting classes for over 12 years.

    During her classes we will try to get a better understanding on the following topics: composition, anatomy, knowledge of materials and colours, art styles and art history. Before every participants will receive background documentation to read. Every lesson will start with a small lecture on one of the above topics and continue to practice the taught components in your own paintings.

    In the advanced lessons we will work more on the questions and experiences from the students, and about what’s going on in art now. We will work with different materials like acrylc, impasto technique, making our own paint, or our own medium.

    by indyoto Updated Jan 22, 2013

    7 km long biking or walking along the Sanur Beach. From Matahari Terbit street to Pantai Mertasari. You can even make it longer, i.e. from Padang galak to Pengembak.
    Footpath along this beach is prety good.

    Bamboo Shoots cooking school

    My spring roll made from scratch

    This was my first ever holiday cooking class and it has left me wanting more. Booking by email was a breeze no deposit required. Dewi collected us from out hotel in Sanur and took us to the morning market. That was a wonderful education and something I had never done in all the trips to Bali. On arrival at Sanur Beach villas , which is where the cooking class is set up in a purpose built outdoor kitchen, we were given a lovely breakfast by the pool .

    After breakfast we started the prep work and went one by one through a variety of dishes including Sulawesi chicken , beef rendang, spring rolls, fish soup, ikan pepes (fish in banana leaves) and green pancakes filled with roasted coconut . We even made coconut milk from grating the coconut we had bought at the market that morning. You could be as hands on as you wanted and ask questions throughout the morning. We all had a turn at making the wrapper for the spring rolls. They were like a fine pancake and you filled and rolled them while warm before deep frying. I must say the fact that we all ate each dish as it was ready meant we were eating all morning and left the class very full indeed. Did not need lunch that day I can tell you.

    The five hours of cooking flew by and left me wanting to go back to try some different recipes on my return to Sanur this year.

    Sanur Beach

    The white sand beach runs the length of the town. It's protected by a reef making the water calm. High tide offers swimming and other sea based activities. At low tide the beach can be explored for marine life.

    A beachfront walk runs for over 4km. Walking or cycling it you'll pass the private beaches of many hotels. Inbetween these there are many bars and restaurants. There are also many stalls where locals sell tourist items.

  • Kite Surfing

    Surfer's may think of staying in Kuta but Sanur offers lessons for those that want to surf using the wind instead of the power of the waves... In Sanur they have a great kite surfing school (Bali Kitesurfing School) where you may learn the art of kite surfing. An introduction course for 1 hour is around 300,000-400,000 IDR...

    The school also have some good safety routines which is especially important for beginners of kite surfing.

    THIS IS A NEW ANIMAL PARK SITUATED 35 MINUTES BY CAR FROM SANUR. IT HAS LOADS TO DO FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR BATHERS AND A TOWEL AND SPEND THE WHOLE DAY . THEY HAVE AIR CONDITIONED BUSES TO TAKE YOU AROUND THE PARK. YOU GET TO SEE WILD ANIMALS FROM AFRICA AND ASIA UP CLOSE. WE LOVED THE LIONS & TIGERS THE MOST. THE PARK ALSO FEATURES AREAS WHERE YOU GET TO FEED & PAT THE ANIMALS. (TIGER CUB & ELEPHANT) MY DAUGHTER HAD A WONDERFUL TIME PATTNG THE TIGER CUB, FEEDING THE ELEPHANTS. SHE HAD A SWIM IN THE POOL & A PLAY IN THE WATER PARK. THE DAY WE WENT, MID-WEEK WAS DESERTED SO SHE HAD THE POOLS TO HERSELF . THEY ALSO HAD AN AMUSEMENT PARK WITH RIDES. YOU PAY AN UPFRONT ENTRANCE FEE THAT INCLUDES PATTING THE TIGER CUB & RIDES IN THE PARK. THE ONLY EXTRA WE HAD TO PAY WAS TO FEED THE ELEPHANTS. WE TOOK AN ESKY WITH DRINKS & SNACKS IN TO SAVE BUYING ANY FOOD THERE. COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER IF I HAD BROUGHT BATHERS. IT IS EXTREMELY HOT & IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO COOL DOWN. LUCKILY MY DAIGHTER HAD BATHERS & A TOWEL WITH HER.

    SANUR SUNRISES

    While staying in Sanur it's worthwhile making the effort to get out of bed early to catch the sunrise. They can be spectacular.
    You will not be alone on the beach at this hour of the morning. Tourists and locals will be out and about. Some will just be sitting waiting for that special moment as the sun breaks the horizon, others will be out for their daily exercise.
    The other bonus at that time of the day is that it is a lot cooler!! It's a good idea to go for a brisk walk along the beach front before the humidity sets in.

    Take a deep breath air, and greets the morning sun

    As it is facing the east, Sanur beach is well known for sun rise waiting. Be there around 5.45, and you can have sometimes to choose from where ya will capture the sun rising. Hope you all lucky then, not much cloud on the east...

    Shrimp boats!

    I am not suggesting you to eat that turtle meat, but when youre in Sanur Beach area, people will invite you to either visit the Turtle island, or eat the turtle's meat. Though those are protected animal, but eat the turtle meat is part of the local religion-culture.

    The beginning of a performance

    If you already watch the Balinese dance performance, it is nice to see the process behind it. Especially when its dealing with kids. I really love them! Innocent, funny, naughty by nature -- sometimes.
