The Magic of Bali – The Incredible Island of Bali

Bali is one of the most renowned tourism destinations in the world and is a spectacle of lush tropical beauty. Located off the coast of Indonesia, the island of Bali contains much luxury accommodation. There are many Seminyak Hotels Bali has to offer such as the Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort. First and foremost, to get the most out of this serene island, you should venture out and experience its natural and spiritual wonders.

Although Indonesia is a primarily Muslim nation, most of Bali’s Hindhu minority is found here, and accounts for more than eighty-percent of the island’s populace. As a result there’s a variety of temples to be explored here, with some being featured in some extremely beautiful locales throughout the island. The Tanah Lot temple for example is situated on its own little landmass, just within reach from one of Bali’s iconic beaches. The temple has various visitor facilities, including a on-site restaurant. If you arrive during a certain time you could also glimpse traditional dances.

To experience a true cultural concept of Bali you should travel towards Ubud, which is famous for its elaborately designed rice-terraces. According to local legend, this technique of cooperative irrigation was passed on to the people from a holy man named Rsi Markendeya during the 8th century. The Tegallalang Rice fields are considered the most beautiful example of Balinese rice cultivation.

A visit to Ubud would be incomplete without experiencing the wonder of the Ubud Monkey Forest, which is simultaneously a place of scientific research as well as a spiritual retreat. The forest is home to many of Balis renowned grey long-tailed macaque monkeys. If you wish to experience more of Bali’s wildlife, there’s no place better than the Bali Safari and Marine Park.

With so much and more to offer, Bali is easily one of the best places to enjoy a retreat into a tropical paradise.
