Bali is home to over 10,000 temples, shrines and religious compounds, so if you’re coming here to check them out, allow plenty of time. The following is a brief guide to visiting temples in Bali.
Entry to temples is almost always free, though there will always be a donation box near the door, and you should be sure to make at least a small donation. Consider this the entry fee, as it is extremely disrespectful to not donate money when coming into the temple.
When people think of Indonesia, many automatically think of Bali — the holiday paradise to which people from around the world flock for fun, relaxation, great value for money and wonderful service and hospitality. Bali has always long been a popular holiday destination and Bali resorts offer travellers a range of great accommodation, leisure and culinary opportunities. However, as some of the most astute world travellers are realising, Indonesia offers a plethora of fabulous cultural experiences, not only in Bali but also the Indonesian capital Jakarta, located on the coast of Java.
Here we take a look at some of the travel highlights of the Indonesian capital with consideration of some of the significant cultural differences between Java and Bali.
Jimbaran is one of the most untouched locations in all of Bali. Situated just south of Ngurah Rai International Airport in the southern peninsula of Bali, Jimbaran was once a former farming hamlet. The village has undergone careful development over the last few decades, and today, while fishing boats are still plentiful, Jimbaran has been transformed into a luxurious and stunning destination for visitors from all over the world. In this article, we take a closer look at this beach town, and look at some of the most popular activities for travellers to Jimbaran.
Jimbaran Bay is situated between Kuta and the Bukit Peninsula. Luxurious Jimbaran hotels line the tranquil local beach, which stretches for over three kilometres. Jimbaran beach is a strip of pristine white sand dotted with numerous restaurants and cafes, most serving some of the freshest seafood to be found on the island.
Bali is the most famous of Indonesia’s islands, blessed with a natural beauty that has some referring to as ‘the last paradise on Earth’. Striking sand beaches circle Bali’s coastline; inland, pristine rainforests dot the island as they surround volcanic mountains. Filled with unique flora and fauna, Bali is home to some 2.5 million people. Much like the accommodation in neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam hotels in Bali can vary in their facilities and it’s best to book well in advance during the busy seasons.
