Bali has been attracting visitors for centuries with its rich cultural heritage and spiritual traditions, warm sea breezes, tropical fragrances, lush mountains, gorgeous sunsets, breathtaking scenery and the warm hospitality of its people.
There are many places of interest to visit and experience the rich cultural heritage of Bali. Tanah Lot with its temple and sunset; Kertagosa or Klungkung, a former site of the oldest Balinese kingdom; Tenganan, one of the original Bali “Aga” villages where traditions have changed little over the centuries; Besakih, the mother temple in Bali, just to name a few of the places. Ubud is a must , whether as a day trip from Nusa Dua, or as an add on for a few nights before leaving Bali.
Shopping is an art form in Bali, and unless there are set prices half the fun is the negotiating. Try not to accept the first price that you are given as it is normal to bargain in Bali, unless the product is price-tagged. Although tempting, try not to make any major purchases for the first few days. Look around, take your time, bargain and then buy at the right price. Bali offers a wide selection, from stone and wood carvings, traditional and modern paintings, ceramics, to fashion. All of them are available in shops and galleries throughout the island.
