Bali, Indonesia


As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Bali received the title as the world's best island for a few years by

The International Travel Magazine. There are, however, still many people who do not know in depth about the uniqueness of Balinese culture. Life in Bali is always related to Tri Hita Karana or a tripartite concept that includes the spiritual relationship between human and God, and their environment.

The rapid growth of development in tourism has had a big impact and influences to Bali tradition and lifestyle. Interestingly, Balinese culture is still what it was, growing along with the globalization. It is the Balinese civilization what makes the island different from other destination.

Among the 17,500 islands across the Indonesian archipelago, Bali is one of the 33 provinces of the Republic of Indonesia.

With sunshine throughout the year, Bali has a tropical monsoon climate, with pleasant day temperatures between 20 to 33 degrees Celsius. A chain of six volcanoes, between 1,350 meters and 3,014 meters high, stretches from East to West. There are lush tropical forests, pristine crater lakes, fast flowing rivers and deep ravines, picturesque rice terraces, and fertile vegetable and fruit gardens. The beaches in the South consist of white sand, beaches in other parts of the island are covered with gray or black volcanic sand. 

The province of Bali is divided into nine regencies (eight regencies and one municipality) with its own capital.

Just like common tropical islands, in Bali you will find a wide variety of plants by surprise. Huge banyan trees are everywhere in the villages.

Bali's population of over 3,000,000 souls spreads over the whole island, including those in the smaller islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan.

With the increasing number of direct flights to Bali from most parts of the world, it makes it easier to go to Bali.

As the most populous area of the island, the southern part of Bali is where most jobs are to be found, mostly in the hotel or tourist industry.

Because of the size of the island, it is not difficult to get around Bali by various modes of transportation including bus, rental car, and motorcycles.
