This family temple ceremony is an example of the type of traditional Balinese cultural event that we will bring you to observe on each of our day tours. These ceremonies are not held for tourists, but are part of the unique culture that is still the Balinese way of life.
Balinese Primary School
A visit to a Balinese School is one of the highlights of our tours. The children will be very happy to see you stop by their classroom, providing you with a warm greeting. You will also learn a little about how the traditional Balinese educational system works.
Traditional Balinese Market
Balinese markets are where you can observe how the local people still shop for their daily needs. At the market there are a wide range of goods for sale, from fruits and spices to everything you need to make your own Balnese Hindu temple. Our guide can explain all of the unique items you will see, and can even help you bargain for any souvenir you might like to purchase.
Bedugul is the name used to cover a large area of the central highlands of Bali around the villages of Candikuning, Pancasari, Pacung and Wanagiri (amongst others). This is an area of great natural beauty. The focus point of the area centres on the three crater lakes of Bratan, Buyan and Tamblingan and the nearby botanical gardens. The temple is on the Bratan lake.
The Bukit (as it is commonly referred to) includes the famous cliff-hanging temple at Uluwatu, a number of Bali's very best beaches and the top surfing spots on the island. As is so often the case, it was intrepid surfers who really opened up the eyes of the world to this part of the island.
