Best Things to Enjoy in Bali
- Culture: there is nothing in the world quite like the Balinese culture, and it has fascinated anthropologists for hundreds of years. Take your time to observe everything around you, don't rush from one location to another, as this is something you won’t encounter elsewhere. In a predominantly Muslim area, Bali is Hindu, but a type of Hinduism that you won't find in India or elsewhere. You’ll find evidence of this everywhere, once you know where to look: from the empty, but richly decorated thrones of primary deity Sanghyang Widi Wasa, to the tiny offerings placed on leaves that you’ll see everywhere (even at the airport, if you look closely).
- Dancing and music: as throughout the entire Javanese culture, dancing and music play very important parts in the lives of the locals, and you definitely cannot leave the island without checking out several such manifestations.
- Festivals: there are lots of festivals going on at different times in Bali, the most famous of them being Nyepi – a time when some people struggle to get to the island in time for the ceremonies, others don't know how to get out faster. On the day before Nyepi, large parades are organized, with huge, colorful monsters being paraded on the streets. On the actual day of Nyepi, absolute silence must be observed, so as to trick evil spirits into believing that Bali is not inhabited. You'll be confined to your hotel room for the entire day – even the airport is closed on this occasion!
