      Bali's Neighbouring Islands

       

      There’s no doubt that Bali is the most popular island destination in Indonesia, but those venturing farther afield in the archipelago will find equally enchanting beaches, surf, culture and wildlife. And based on popular demand, this issue of NOW! Bali highlights “how to get there,” “where to go,” “what to do,” “where to sleep,” and “where to eat” on these islands.

      The warmth of the sun, the wind in your hair, a good book to read and a cool drink in hand, our sailing trip to the islands east of Bali is filled with sunny days, warm breezes and starlit nights.!

What is “Real Bali”?

This is a serious question which needs taken seriously. Why did you come to Bali? The readers of this magazine are 90% tourists and visitors to the island who have made sincere decisions as to how to spend their holiday time (and money!) the best way possible to have a great time! Just twenty years ago there was no doubt that people came here for, what I call, the right reasons: culture, art, beach, sea and sightseeing. But since then the reasons have become blurred as the support industries: restaurants, clubs, bars, amusement centres, shops, spas and parks, have grown to the point that they have become the primary reasons that many people come here!

Welcome Dance

Condong
Tuesday, 01 April 2014

Condong

Possibly the most popular dance in Bali is the Legong dance. This classic Balinese dance, which is accompanied by the sound of gamelan, has become the foundation for the basic routines of many Balinese dances. The original Legong is danced by two teenage girls who haven’t yet reached maturity and was developed in the palaces in Bali during the 19th century. The story goes that a prince of Sukawati had a dream where he is dying of some sickness. In his dream, he sees two girls...

Balinese Cosmology: A Visual Representation

Balinese religion (Hindu Dharma) is a mix of ancestors’ cult and Indian philosophy. The Balinese believe in reincarnation -- a Hindu import -- but most of their rites and worshipping activities are related to the ancestors’ cult – an indigenous practice also found throughout much of the eastern part of Asia. When someone dies, what matters is to perform the rites that will enable the soul of the dead...

Bali’s beautiful children always instill a sense of awe. Beautiful, secure, mostly brimming with health, with shining beaming smiles, they seem to harbor some secret that the rest of us are just not party to.  They attend ceremonies, connecting with the amazing energy that Bali possesses. They have their teeth filed to even out the dangerous passions that can damage us. Each rite of passage is attended with a ceremony and ritual. Their world is secure and all encompassing.

3 Themes, a Million Flavours

“With the opening of Sofitel Nusa Dua comes a number of welcome additions to the ever expanding list of great restaurants in town. Recently, I heard a good review about one of Sofitel’s dining venues, Cut Catch Cucina: “The restaurant offers three different ambiences through the interior and other decorations and three different lists of mouth-watering cuisines, but it is actually one”. A little bit confused by the radio presenter’s explanation, I decided to experience it for myself.”

Accessing Bali's Hidden, Unspoiled Beauty

“Who would’ve thought that the arid Muntigunung, a hilly region in north-eastern Bali, offers some of the best, yet least known, treks. Here you can observe some of the most astonishing views on the island, vistas that will likely leave you breathless.” Most visitors to Bali don’t know that this unique, authentic trekking experience exists; but those who do are in for an amazing treat, for as they plunge into the bushes and misty hills...

Ascending Agung

“The sunrise trek up Mount Agung is probably one of the most spectacular outdoor experiences I have ever had. Breathtaking, both physically and metaphorically, battling this great, active volcano through night and day is a rewarding challenge for any nature lover out there.” We began our trip by driving in the direction of the little seaside town, Candidasa, towards Alila Manggis Hotel, our hosts. The illusion of a long and tedious drive to the east coast often puts people...

"Green" Doll Creation

“These days going ‘green’ has become popular and more and more people are starting to tweak their daily routines to benefit the earth. Introducing trees, plants and nature to kids in their early childhood is, I think, the best way to make them grow to love Mother Earth.” Balinese Cultural Creation, located in the heart of Denpasar, offers an activity called Green Doll. My auntie made a reservation for her 6 year old son, Diptha, for this activity. We arrived at Balinese Cultural Creation at...

It’s Show Time

The Balinese have decided that the time is right for some major appeasement rituals directed at the negative forces. Such ceremonies, called Tawur Agung, usually happen yearly, on the 9th full moon before Nyepi, the Day of Silence, but last month it was decided that they need augmenting, due to the rise in violent and unusual crimes. Last month Bali was taken off Huffington Post’s Bucket List, Schapelle Corby was released from Kerobokan jail, and Ketut...
