The dance is based on the never-ending struggle between Good and Evil. The dance is performed by the lion dragon Barong (the Good) and Rangda the witch (the Evil). Mudras (hand gestures) are used. Rangda (Evil) usually withdraws accompanied by gamelan music. In Bali, every dance has a social and religious background. The Barong dance, a drama, is a classic example of this. The masks and costumes are full of symbolism. More to the east is the ancient city of Klungkung, where you visit the ancient palace.

The impressive complex consists of 23 separate but connected temples, spread over several terraces with several Merus and pavilions over a length of one km. The exact origins of the temple are unclear, but its importance as a holy place almost certainly dates back to prehistoric times. The stone base of Pura Penataran Agung and several other temples resemble megalithic step pyramids, which are at least 2000 years old. It was certainly used as a holy Hindu place of worship from 1284 when the first Javanese conquerors settled in Bali (Source: wikipedia). At Kintamani you can enjoy a beautiful panorama over the lake and the (active) volcano Gunung Batur. Puri Beji is a temple dedicated to the goddess of rice.

Denpasar is the busy capital of Bali.
Besides some museums and the market there aren’t many tourist attractions in the capital, though you can do some great shopping for cheap prices.



Sanur is located directly on the Indian Ocean.
The beach of Sanur beach is protected by a reef at some 100 meters off shore, which means that the waves are much gentler than in Kuta.
Sanur is a quiet old fishing village with lots of hotels, restaurants and shops

Favourite restaurant

My own experience: Mades Restaurant, in the centre of Sanur. Delicious Balinese food and Indonesian dishes!

Mades Restaurant - Sanur



Bangli is a place in East Bali. The area around is beautiful and fantastic for walking, hiking and cycling. The village Panglipuran has a very nice temple.

The best activity around Bangli is spending a day in the daily rural life of the Balinese people. In the village of Undisan you can help to cultivate the land and suddenly you are plowing the sawah with an ox…



Pemuteran is a small fishing village in the northwest of Bali, at the Bali-zee.
It’s situated at the edge of the West-Bali National Park very close to the beautiful seagardens of Menjangan island, one of the most fabulous diving spots in Indonesia.
In the village Pemuteran itself is not much to do. But almost every hotel offer plenty of facilities to fulfil your wishes.
Pemuteran is a perfect place to relax a couple of days after a tiring Java trip.

Favourite restaurant

According to Vera, the tahu and tempeh goreng with saté and gado gado are delicious!

Warung Makan Nengah

What to see

Diving or snorkeling at Nusa Menjangan is the must-do in Pemuteran. Book at your reception a day in advance and you will be taken by boat to the island of Nusa Menjangan. We bet you will meet Nemo and some turtles?
Hiking in the National Park west Bali. Not the breathtaking tropical rainforest of Sumatra or Kalimantan, but you will always encounter some strange birds, monkeys, deer and pigs.
Dolphin spotting at Lovina. You don't have to stay in Lovina for the dolphins. Almost all hotels offer a dolphin excursion. You leave around 5 in the morning by car to Lovina and go there on the boat to the dolphins.
Turtle Hatchery Project. Within walking distance, between the Taman Sari an Adi Assri resort is the turtle center, where the eggs wait in a kind of hatchery for the young sea turtles to hatch. They are protected there for the first few weeks of their lives, until they are large enough to be released on the beach and choose the full sea.


Seminyak - Bali

From the seaside resorts Tuban, Kuta, Legian and Seminyak is Seminyak the most northern one.
Beach and hotels are much more spacious overhere and it’s much less crowded. There are many nice hotels and many private bungalows.

Favourite restaurant

In addition to the many trendy restaurants, there are also some good traditional Balinese. Made's Warung is one of the best known. On Thursday there is live acoustic music and on the other days from half past seven traditional Balinese dance.
