Visiting The Sites of Bali

Posted by Leslie in Escapes, Travel

Bali T-Shirt Bali is an island of extremes, whether the heat drenched beaches or cool lush mountains.

There is no mass transportation in Bali, so a car, motorbike or guided tour is the only way to discover the island’s beauty.  Just 95 miles wide – it is worth venturing off the pristine beaches to take in the island’s culture and deep rooted traditions.

Here is a small glimpse of some of the sites.

Lush rice paddy terraces offer some of the most spectacular scenery.

The congested city of Kuta brings together locals and visitors as tourist central. Servicing visitors with hotels, guided tours, restaurants, shopping, motorbike rentals and famed beaches.  I was overwhelmed by all the scooters that function as cheap transportation for both visitors and locals.

Volcanic Mount Batur, Abane and Agung, and the northern lakes are a paradise for hikers or visitors seeking spectacular views.

Fashionable venues as the Klapa Beach Center offer pristine pools, romantic views and a cool reprieve from the heat.

Balinese temples as the royal Taman Ayun temple in Mengwi and traditional dance performances are fascinating as Balinese Hindu traditions remain an integral part of the culture.
