TIMELESS Bali is a limited edition magazine which focuses on the elements of Bali that are considered to be ‘timeless’. The history, culture and nature of the island have been carefully preserved in stories and photographs, so that every reader appreciates Bali and learns about Bali more.
In this first volume, you will find stories that help to explain Bali’s origins, explaining the things you see around you today, including the rites, rituals, arts and more. You will read travel stories with meaning, local myths and legends, in-depth explanations of complex cultural phenomenons written to help you understand. It is ‘real Bali’ printed onto the page, and is a great companion to any Bali lover, and must-display in Bali homes, villas and businesses.
About TIMELESS Bali
Every page is home to a story that must be read, photographs that inspire, and thus a magazine to be kept and cherished for years to come. The content matches this mission, with articles that will last forever: stories on Bali’s past, present and future; stories on the seen and unseen; stories on places and people.
A mission of TIMELESS Bali is really to educate and enlighten readers on the core elements of Bali, to foster a deeper understanding of the things one sees around the island.
“Why have we made this publication? Honestly it’s a labour of love,” shares Publisher Alistair Speirs. “We want to portray the eternal aspects of Bali in a way that the world will appreciate, and as people understand these aspects and grow to love them they will start to respect them and hopefully strive to protect and preserve them, and as they preserve them they may want to teach others about them and encourage them to do the same.”
We believe that the pandemic has helped Bali to pause and reflect, recognising that its path to ‘mass tourism’ was not sustainable, nor an accurate reflection of what the island has to offer visitors. It is our hope that our publication will assist Bali’s future by re-focusing people’s attention back to culture, nature, history, society and even creativity.
