When I decided to add a quick trip to Bali onto my work trip to Singapore, I expected to chill out on the beaches for the short three days I had there. And, obviously, I did plenty of that #tanlines #burnttoacrisp. But what I loved most was the absolutely stunning culture that exists there.
It's an island of mostly Hindu believers who treat each other with respect and a constant smile on their face. They celebrate constantly - with colorful dancers and flower petals - in outdoor temples that are made of hand carved stone from years ago.
If you ever get the chance to visit this beautiful island, I would highly recommend touring the internal parts of the island. I could only visit Ubud and the Rice Terraces, but I hear the volcano and other temples around the island are also stunning. And if you're lucky, you'll get a great tour guide like I had to show you, as he called it, "the real Bali."
Below are the daily offerings to their gods which are placed outside of homes and business with incense and prayer- three times daily.
A trip to the rice terraces is a must! It's one of Bali's biggest industries and just stunning to surround yourself with.
Of course there is still the R&R that you should take advantage of- and the beaches are quite stunning! Cheers!
