Paradise in the Making: Bali Eco Village Loves Our Mother Earth Typical Bali: Sarong



There is quite a revolution going on in the holiday destinations of the region, as more and more travelers are seeking out holiday options that don't have a major impact upon the environment. Increasing numbers of travelers are choosing holidays that benefit the local community, that don't destroy the very attraction they have come to see and, where travelers feel they have gained something valuable from the experience. However, responsible tourism is much more than going on a jungle trek to see some interesting plants or animals. It involves employing the local community in meaningful jobs, educating the… THIS STORY CONTINUES ON PAGE 46 >>

Do you want us to tell you some secrets? Bali is an island of mystery and magic. We know that it’s a bit too late, but we began to realize that there is still much more to discover in Bali. Yet, we don’t want you to expect too much; due to our bounds, we can (so far) only take you to some of the island’s best-kept secrets. Yes, we’re talking about places that many Bali guidebooks—including the Lonely Planet – don't know about. For a start, we were exploring the undisturbed beauty of Lauak Village up on the hills of Kintamani. Undoubtedly ideal for adventure seekers, this area offers a tranquil setting to decompress with its rhythms of stillness, where the only sounds heard are the leaves surfing on the wind and a symphony of birds. With the help of a secret tourism project currently undergoing in the village, Bali Eco Village, we discovered not only the rarely visited area on the island but also how tourism could also be responsible in placing value on the environment. We also made a stop to an abandoned project called Taman Festival (Festival Park) in Padang Galak area near Sanur. It was quite a surprise for us that such a place actually looks even more astonishing despite its failure. Little did we know that the ‘dead’ place is actually a home for some of the most frightened predators in the world (see page 16). Our other regular features are still here; therefore, enjoy reading! And enjoy Bali too!


THE MAG Team's Note

ns! Congratulatio LOL! You Found it.


Kuta Boy Breaks Record

A 12-year-old boy from Kuta had his name inked on the Guiness Book of World Records for his ability to memorize a 76-digit figure in 60 seconds. Born in Surabaya (East Java), Dominic Brian had shown his special ability in memorizing numbers ever since he was very little. In 2002, when he was five, Dominic had his name included in the Indonesian Museum of Records (Muri) for his ability to memorize a 100-digit figure in 12 minutes. Yet, the boy humbly said that he would continue training to be able to remember up to 104 digits or face challengers who are expected to emerge soon. Up until today, Dominic has collected as many as 19 championship titles.

Times Bookstores Now in Bali Known for its chain of retail outlets throughout Singapore, Indonesia (Jakarta and Bandung), Macau and Malaysia, Times Bookstores is now opening its store in Bali’s Kuta Square (and the Bali Galeria soon). Times would certainly help both the tourists and residents alike to explore Bali even deeper with its complete collection of travel books. However, that is not all because Times offers its readers of all ages and interests with a wide and exciting variety of books from children's to lifestyle and non-fiction.

It’s Like Dancin’ on a Relative’s Graveyard This is certainly shocking news: a nightclub and restaurant complex are planned on the site of Sari Club in Legian. Here’s a quick reminder in case you’ve forgotten: Sari Club was where the 2002 Bali bombings took place, claiming the lives of 202 innocent people. Rumors have it that a nightclub mogul had submitted a building application to the local authorities. The mogul’s plan to proceed with the nightclub development is indeed an insult for people whose relatives were killed on that bloody event. Bali Peace Park Association, an Australian-Indonesian group that aims a garden and place of remembrance on the ‘sacred’ site, had also stated disappointment towards the plan. Luckily, the building application has so far not been processed yet; and let’s hope that it will never. 14

Boohoo! We’re watching you To boost the security measures, the beaches along Kuta up to Petitenget now have CCTV installed. Poles which the spying cameras will be attached to have been erected along these beaches with procedures have been developed in such a way to have a minimal impact on the people having fun on the beach areas. This is only some of the ways that the Bali government is implementing to ensure the people with the best possible security available.

Flying Fish and Margaritas Understanding the needs of fantastic food, great cocktails, fresh appealing menus and world-class service, the O-CE-N Bali by Outrigger certainly deserves the reputation as one of Bali’s bests. To enhance the location and the impeccable quality resort, Executive Chef Wayan Wenten (one of the island’s most creative experienced chefs) has designed astonishing food and beverage facilities. Signature style is applied to its modern menu that includes Mediterranean, Asian and European cuisines—all incorporates the quality and freshness. Happy hour from 5-7 (by sunset) offers guests the chance to mingle and mix over superb cocktail selections at very reasonable prices.

New Place to Lay Your Head Though it might be a hectic and busy road; the Sunset Road has a new hotel where you can find your peace. The '100 Sunset Boutique Hotel' just opened its doors a few months ago and offers a comfortable place to stay. This modern hotel has all the amenities and you will have no trouble sleeping as you won't notice the traffic outside.

Pedro’s Flying Piano “Tibet Exhibition”

Get into an artistic mood and visit Pedro’s restaurant 'The Flying Piano' at Jl. Werkudara, Legian where a unique art exhibition is being held. Over 250 pieces of Tibetan Buddhist paintings and prints are being presented on the second floor of this Swiss restaurant. Entrance to check the gallery is free and all pieces are up for sale.

magine yourself being in a horror movie, in a park with ‘ghost’ amusement rides. A strewn, rusty signboard saying “welcome” to apparently no one but you would act as a mute greeting before you could finally walk along in between the profusely-dusted, abandoned buildings and steps. To make it even horror-perfect, you’d be having pairs of unfriendly eyes emerging from the algaecovered water watching you. Fallen dry leaves would frequently fly here and there as the wind sweeps the ground, accompanying you as you rush frightened. We are talking about one of Bali’s best-kept secrets known as Taman Festival (literally means Festival Park). This place was initially constructed as an amusement park until, sadly, the money ran out and the construction was put to a stop. The locals said all the buildings were intact and it was as if the owners had packed up and left never to return. The aviaries and cages are empty along with the buildings, undergrowth and vines all over the structures. Although obviously Taman Festival is not in operation, you still need to pay


You’d be having pairs of unfriendly eyes emerging from the algae-covered water watching you. Yes, this huge pit is full of 'snapping, hungry handbags'. ‘entrance ticket’ in order to get in to this dead park; we’re not sure where the money goes. However, the IDR 10,000 donation/person will surprisingly pay off; it is funny to learn that this park looks astonishing despite its ‘failure’. Even though it’s dead, a life is still going on inside the park. Going further down the grounds, we came across this huge pit full of 'snapping handbags'—dozens of them. Unknown by many, Taman Festival is the home of heaps of, just like the park, abandoned crocodiles. In their squalid condition, these crocodiles are very much dependent to the locals to throw in food for them. Yet, this will only happen whenever the locals find a road kill and rotten meat. Aside from that, many unwanted dogs also end up here. There used to be hundreds of crocodiles living in this park. With the current drastically decreasing number, there are suspicions that these crocodiles have been turning to each other for food. Freakily speaking, the pit would also be perfect as a spot to dispose of bodies too… It is good to know that the government of Bali through its Natural Resource Conservation Agency (BKSDA) has finally noticed the existence of these crocodiles in Taman Festival. Regular feeding and water cleansing once in a week have currently been put on BKSDA’s schedule. To go to Taman Festival and see the crocodiles, take on the Sanur Bypass leading north. On the traffic lights after McDonald’s Sanur, take a right turn to Padang Galak Road. The park will be on your left side at the end of the road‑beachside.


Balinese Caste System


s the only Hindu-dominated province in Indonesia, Bali is unique due to its practices of ancient traditions. The Hinduism in Bali is also different especially because all the religious teachings are deeply interconnected with arts, rituals and animist beliefs. One aspect that is derived from this diversity is the appliance of caste system within the Balinese society. Forms of hierarchy have existed for centuries in Bali; however, as Hinduism influences came to the island, the complex forms of hierarchy have been made simpler and adapted to fit the religion. There are four castes recognized in Bali: Brahmana (priests), Ksatria (rulers, warriors), Wesia (merchants and officials) and Sudra (farmers). The easiest way to recognize the caste of a Balinese person is through the name; particular names indicate a particular caste. The names representing each of these castes are: • Brahmana: Ida Bagus or Bagus (good one) for male Ida Ayu or Dayu (beautiful one) for female • Ksatria: Anak Agung, Agung, Dewa for male Anak Agung, Agung, Dewi, Dewayu for female Cokorda, Dewa Agung for members of the kingdom ruling clan • Wesia: Gusti (lord) for both male and female Dewa for male Desak for female • Sudra: Wayan, Putu, Gede for first born male child Wayan, Putu, Iluh for first born female child 18

THE MAG Balinese Caste System

Made, Kadek for second born male child Made, Kadek, Nengah for second born female child Nyoman, Komang for third born male and female children Ketut for fourth born male or female children. The fifth born reverts back to the list for first born children. These caste differences also come into play when speaking. Due to mutual respect, when two Balinese strangers are talking to each other, the language spoken would be the one from the middle level. However, once the two finally recognize each other’s caste, the language would switch into the one that fits the caste—yet, in a reversed way. For instance, if the two strangers are of a high caste and the other is low caste, the one with high caste would talk in the common language and the one with low caste would reply using high Balinese language. Again, this practice is done to respect each other. Overall, although the caste system still exists in today’s modern life, it doesn’t posses as much power as it did in older times.

There are too many to mention. We’re right on the street that I always go to at night. To name one place is pretty hard, but I would say Sky Garden has nice drinks. For music I would probably say M bar go.

I don’t really like to go out and party at night, but I love looking at the Sunset. I like to go sunset gazing in Ku De Ta. The place is so relaxing; sometimes I don’t realize it’s already dark. The drinks are nice too!




L O C AT I O N : D O U B L E S I X



My hotel is not far from here, so I usually party around here. Dejavu is a great place to party! The music is really cool, makes me wanna dance all night long and the drinks are excellent.

I don’t really like to party at night, I prefer to hangout on the beach or sunbathe near a pool all day. A night out for me is a cozy restaurant with nice food and easy music. Something like Mannekepis in Seminyak.

This is my first time to Bali, so I just follow where my friends take me. They usually drag me to a place called Bounty or some small bars along Poppies Lane. Drinks are really cheap here.

My First Trip to Bali

Jake, Australia


THE MAG My First Trip to Bali

It could be that Bali is indeed the perfect place for this surfer to live, since the ocean seems to bring him so much inspiration in his life. The Balinese naturally gifted craftsmanship is another appeal that invokes creativity for his ocean-inspired jewelry designs. The two charms were so captivating that in 2002 Jake and his wife made up their mind, and decided to start a whole new life here. Just because they fell in love with Bali.

When was your first trip to Bali and why? It was 1973 when I travelled to Bali for the first time with my parents. We used to live in Hongkong, so it wasn’t far for us to travel to Bali. Even then, Bali was already known as a tourist destination. But I was very young back then, and can’t really remember anything clearly about that first time in Bali. However, the next time I came to Bali, which was a long time later, was in 2001. I came for a holiday, most of all to surf. It turned out that I really liked Bali, and not only for the whole surfing thing. During this vacation I learnt that Bali was a potential incredible new place to live. What was your best memory of the trip? Hmmmmm, I think it was the people. The spirit of friendliness felt so strong to me. And besides, I think I liked nearly everything! The morning jaffles, nasi goreng, reefs, waves, Bukit, Dreamland, Uluwatu… Well, I happen to love surfing, and that have made Bali such a paradise to me! That is also the reason why I still try to surf as much as possible, even as a father of three children now. What was the best hang-out place back then? Well, since I’m a surfer, I think that the best hang out places were Uluwatu, Padang Padang, and Bukit Peninsula. Those have been really incredible spots to surf.

What is the biggest change since your trip back then? The increasing amount of people I think. But I think that’s no wonder, because everybody wants to live in Bali. Look how beautiful the island is! Beside the amount of people, a lot of environmental problems have also appeared. The floods, the traffic jams, and the constructions around the tourism areas seem to be endless! And moreover, I think that electricity will also soon become a huge issue in Bali. I think we have to worry about the fact that we fully depend on the energy supply from East Java up till now. Meanwhile the demand of electricity in Bali will still become higher and higher as its rapid progress continues everyday. What made you decide to move here? Like said before, I happen to fall in love with Bali at the moment I came here in 2001. And as soon as I arrived here, I kind of knew that I really loved this island. I mean, I have travelled to many places before… I had once stayed for a couple of years in Guatemala and Peru for business. Before I’ve even spent 10 years in Hawaii during college. But somehow Bali was something different to me. I think I just instantly fell in love with Bali. May be it was because of its atmosphere that slightly reminded me of my ‘hometown’ in Hongkong, combined with the other familiar places I’ve known in my life. Soon after the Bomb Tragedy in 2002, my wife and I moved to Bali and started our business here. And it was going well, even during the hard times in 2002. Then again we fell in love with Bali, and this time even more… My First Trip to Bali

Barong &



arong is probably the most well known dance in Bali. It acts as a story-telling, narrating the fight between good and evil. This dance is the classic example of Balinese way of acting out mythology, resulting in myth and history being blended into one attractive ‘show’. The story goes with Rangda, the mother of Erlangga, the King of Bali in the tenth century, was condemned by Erlangga's father because she practiced black magic. After she became a widow she summoned all the evil spirits in the jungle, the leaks and the demons to come after Erlangga. A fight occurred, but she and her black magic troops were too strong that Erlangga had to ask for the help from Barong. Barong came with Erlangga's soldiers, and fights ensued. Rangda caste a spell that made Erlangga soldiers all wanted to kill themselves, pointing their poisoned keris (dagger) into their own stomachs and chests. Barong caste a spell that turned their body resistant to the sharp keris. At 30

THE MAG Barong & Rangda

the end, Barong won, and Rangda ran away. Although the dance tells a story about an olden time’s history, there are still chances that somebody could die or get seriously injured in today’s Barong dance performance. This deadly occurrence, however, might only take place when the Barong dance is performed for spiritual purposes – not the one acted out on a stage as an entertainment. It is said that a performer could get killed or badly hurt if the person’s condition is not ‘clean’ (such as after attending a cremation ceremony or any other occasions that involve deaths). There were also instances when the mantras used were too strong; thus hurting or even killing the ‘weak’ performers. In this case, the performers may end up hurting themselves with their own keris. The masks of Barong and Rangda are also considered as sacred items. It is why before they are brought out, a priest must be present to offer blessings by sprinkling them with holy water taken from Mount Agung, and offerings must be presented.



Western food on plate, Balinese ricefields on sight



THE MAG Food Review: La Cantina

ali continues to go through an amazing culinary journey with restaurants falling and rising. Looking back at the past years, attempts have now been developed to not only producing food that looked and tasted nice; restaurants are competing to create a distinct, comforting atmosphere. As the result, you can now eat extremely well and comfortable with options of dishes from many different national cuisines. La Cantina is a distinct French ambiance hidden away in the greenery of Kerobokan’s ricefields. Known as the chill-out, eating venue for the Bali’s French community, presumably the food has got to be good. With an explored and developed concept of a traditional warung, La Cantina’s tempting menu comes in delightfully low prices. It is ideal for those who often dream of escaping to a different kind of restaurant; a restaurant where people would be happy to dine.

Floating Island

Crispy Rolls

Lamb Shank Confit La Cantina’s setting consists of a large pavilion that is connected to the bale. An open-air building by a bamboo walkway with a grass roof looks astonishing with colonial furnishings (teakwood and marble topped tables, daybeds and tea chairs). The gardens are certainly appealing, especially with the tables set in a space full of Bougainville—truly romantic. With a rice terrace that gives spectacular view, this place is blessed with things that many others unfortunately aren’t; consequently, a dining experience at La Cantina would be remarkable. On a recent visit there, I sat myself on one of the tables in the garden. Enjoying the refreshing view and looking at the menu that ranges from many European delights and Asian specials, I quickly raised my hand to make my orders. Came appealing to my delight, I ordered Crispy Rolls (stuffed with goat cheese, lettuce leaves, sun-dried tomato and fresh herbs) as a starter, Lamb Shank Confit (in sweet soy gravy, glazed carrot with Tarragon) as the main dish and the traditional Floating Island (egg white dumpling served floating on a milky custard sauce) to cool everything off. It was all splendid!

La Cantina will certainly amuse the customers with a non-mainstream restaurant atmosphere in Seminyak-Kerobokan area. Also an internet spot, you can enjoy La Cantina’s delights and view from 8am-midnight (Mon-Sat) and 7pmmidnight (Sun). Selamat Makan

t looks cute, but bija (rice seed) attached on forehead every time a Balinese is done praying means a lot more than just a face accessory. As a symbol of prosperity, a rice seed attached on forehead or neck is also meant to: • To place within the soul intelligence and good instincts to differentiate good and evil; • To implant within the mind good characters; • To invoke good traits believed to be ‘asleep’ within body and soul; • To worship Bhatara Shiwa (Shiva).

What are you doing in Bali? Well, I’m doing some consultant and management works. 5. How long have you been living in Bali? 25 years now. Anyway, enough about you. Let's talk Bali! 6. Best place to have breakfast? Hmm…I don’t really eat breakfast. But if I do, it’ll be at my house in Umalas. 7. Best place to have lunch? Well [getting a bit confused], nothing really in particular. 8. Best place to have dinner? The thing is [getting even more confused], I’m the kind of person who loves trying out new places. So I don’t really have a particular restaurant as my favorite. 9. Err…but you own a restaurant (Zanzibar), right? Why don’t you just say that Zanzibar is your favorite eating place?

But during my first years in Bali, my friends and I made a lot of parties in Dreamland, Padang Padang and even on the ricefields. 12. Best massage in Bali? What and where? I normally call the masseur over to my house. But I also go to Cozy for a nice foot reflexology sometimes. Oh, also Suku. 13. What should be forbidden in Bali? CRAZY PEOPLE [lookin’ so very firm]. You know… the kind of people who make a mess, use drugs, get drunk and end up having a fight. I hate those people! 14. Most interesting person in Bali...and why? Her name is Putu Etiartini. She is a very courageous person with a golden heart. She works for the welfare of Bali’s street children.

15. What do you miss in Bali? Many things [sigh]. I miss the greeneries, the smooth traffic and also the people. The people in Bali are nice now; but back then, they were really really nice. 16. Why do you love Bali? I don’t know if this will answer your question, but I’m dropping my Italian citizenship so that I can be an Indonesian and live in Bali. The Indonesian government will take my oath soon. Wow you DO love Bali, don’t you? Now, you can pick the next 'victim' for Bali & Me. Who do you want to be framed on the next issue?

THE MAG Food Review: Red Carpet

here’s no shortage of impressive developments, but Seminyak is sparkling more and more with venues that the island’s most stylish crowd is anticipating for. Known as the home of legendary clubs, bars, boutiques and restaurants, Seminyak is playing an elegant role in attracting Bali’s well-heeled visitors and residents. With new fashionable venues that have just recently opened, Seminyak’s fabulous reputation would invite more chic people to come. Spotlights are on and the red carpet has been rolled out; come and enjoy the extravaganza…everyone is invited! Making the sound of popping corks even more familiar in Oberoi area, Red Carpet Champagne Bar’s striking set made its entree just in time when high season hit the island some time ago. The unusual look of the Red Carpet service girls and boys should make it clear for passers by to learn that the new bar


Red Carpet's kinky collection

is a sexy spot. Social gatherings, after-work drinks or just regular hang-outs could certainly turn extraordinary – and awkward first dates could surprisingly run smooth as well. Feel free to indulge yourself in extensive selection of champagnes, accompanied by free flow of hundreds of unique finger food creations every 15 minutes. Of course, the drinks assortment extends to wines, cocktails and others. Oysters also seem to play a role in Red Carpet. The bar’s chic menu consists of various oysters (Natural, Killpatrick and Rockefeller) freshly imported from Australia or the US. Not only that, Red Carpet is also the place for you to try the sensation of the oystered Bloody Marry. Caviar and cigars are two other items that spell out luxury in Red Carpet. Then again, if you don’t feel like burning a hole in your wallet, you can always go with the ‘humble’ menu that comprises sandwiches, salads, soups, wraps and many others.

Red Carpet is certainly a delicious alternative spot. The bar’s boutique with its leather and fur kinky fashion designs is way too sexy for those not ready for exclusive, alternative ideas. All in all, with Red Carpet taking part in the business, you’ll probably agree that Seminyak is a pretty nice state of mind to be in. Selamat Makan!

TEN MUSTVISIT BALINESE TEMPLES In every village in Bali, there are several temples and at least one small temple in each home. Therefore, you can always say that there are more temples than homes in Bali. Although many temples are quiet and uninhabited, they are transformed into colorful, active and ornately decorated places of worship when there is a festival. Offerings would be made, while performances of traditional dances and gamelan, cockfighting and gambling liven up the atmosphere. Listed below are ten temples that you should visit during your stay in Bali.

1 Kehen

Kehen temple is one of the ancient temples in Bali that house old bronze-made manuscripts. It is a historical temple worth visiting with a long plight of steps pointing down to the south. It can be reached by any mode of transports through asphalted road, or a short walk from Bangli cultural hall. This temple is located on the southern slope of Bangli hill about two kilometers from the town.



Batur temple or commonly called Ulun Danu Temple is situated at 900 meters above sea level of Batur village in Kintamani. The temple is facing west where Mount Batur and remains of its solidified black lavas serve as the backdrop. Lake Batur stretches far down the slope, enchased the beauty to nature around the temple. 50


3 Mekori

Mekori temple is just on the road Antosari Pupuan located at Blimbing village, 55km from Denpasar or 32km away from Tabanan. This temple consists of many stones hidden in the forest. It does not look like an ordinary temple in Bali, but it is a place where people pray to their God.



Besakih (the holiest of all temples in Bali) is located a climb north through the astonishing landscapes of Jambul Hill, ascends over 900 meters up the slopes of Mount Agung. It was originated as a prehistoric terraced sanctuary where worship and offerings were made to the god of Mount Agung as the holiest mountain on the island. Over a thousand years, it was enlarged and added to until it grew into the present complex of about 30 temples.


Tirta Empul

The waters at Tirta Empul are believed to have magic curative powers. Every year people journey from all over Bali to purify themselves in the clear pools. After leaving a small offering to the deity of the spring, men and women go either side to bathe. On the full moon of the fourth month each year, the villagers from nearby Manukaya take a sacred stone to be cleansed at Tirta Empul.


Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is a temple that somewhat sails the ocean, and probably the most photographed place of interest in the island. If hearsay is to be believed, there dwells inside one of the shrines at Tanah Lot a huge snake, discreetly left undisturbed by the Balinese. Although a small sanctuary, Tanah Lot is linked to a series of sea temples on the south coast of Bali. Near this Temple there are several small and big shrines, the biggest one is Pekendungan Temple. There is a spring considered sacred not far from this temple. The Ten


7 Tirta Empul

The waters at Tirta Empul are believed to have magic curative powers. Every year people journey from all over Bali to purify themselves in the clear pools. After leaving a small offering to the deity of the spring, men and women go either side to bathe. On the full moon of the fourth month each year, the villagers from nearby Manukaya take a sacred stone to be cleansed at Tirta Empul.

8 Taman Ayun

Aside from being a place of worship, this royal temple also acted as a symbol of power of the Mengwi Empire back in the olden days. Today, Taman Ayun Temple is known as a tourist attraction site located in Mengwi, some 18km north of Denpasar. Its beautiful landscape surrounded by a moat with lotuses gives the feel of a beautiful garden sanctuary; thus, earning the temple quite a number of tourists visiting. Frangipanis are abundantly grown all around the wall. Within the inner court are merus (pagoda of Hindu temple), dedicated to various gods and spirits.

9 Goa Lawah

Goa Lawah (Bat Cave), some 10 kilometers east of Klungkung, is the home of one of the most scared temples in Bali. As said on its name, Goa Lawah is inhibited by thousands of bats hangin down on the ceiling and flying around. The cave itself is also believed to channel the area to Mount Agung, but of course with many obstacles: a holy python snake (Naga Besuki) and the thousands of noisy, long-nosed bats. 52



Gunung Kawi

Gunung Kawi is a Hindu temple complex carved into the cliff face. Local legend has it that these temple carvings were ‘hand-made’ back in the 11th century by Kebo Iwa, a legendary giant in Balinese folktales, using nothing but his very own fingers. Reaching this rock temple from the ancient time is through the footpath going down passing breathtakingly beautiful rice terraces.

Go Green In Bali Bali is a beautiful island to visit and like many other tourist destinations, being such a popular spot brings many problems. One concerning problem that we at The Mag have come to notice is the ever growing environmental problems that effect this paradise island. We at The Mag hope that all travelers will take (little) time to read these points and take them to action, in order to lessen the damage. So please, keep Bali Beautiful.

1. Refill your water bottle

6. Eco-travelling

2. Please don’t litter

7. Lights out

Instead grabbing a new bottle of mineral water, why not keep that bottle and refill it. You can refill for free, in some places such as JP's Warung Club in Dhyana Pura.

It’s a habit we should all try to keep, and that is just “don’t litter”. If no trashcan is in sight, just keep it in your bag or pocket until you come across one, and then dispose of it correctly.

3. See some rubbish, pick it up

Add that little extra part in keeping Bali clean by picking scraps of trash ignorant people have discarded carelessly and then find the appropriate place to dispose of it.

4. Reuse or refuse plastic bags

Sometimes shops will still put your goods into plastic bags. It’s ok to refuse the plastic bags, if you’re carrying your own. You may get a strange look from the cashier, if so; just explain your trying to "Keep Bali Beautiful!”

5. Walk more!

To keep the air of Bali cleaner, it’s always better to walk. Other than being a healthy alternative, you may accidentally stumble onto a small store or unseen bar which you may have missed.


What's Happening

What better way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of nature in Bali than to take an eco-tourism tour. Many companies provide trips into the untouched wilderness of Bali, or the unspoiled coral reefs.

Leaving your AC on is a huge waste of valuable electrical energy. It’s better to turn off your AC and lights before heading out.

8. It’s better to go out for dinner

It is sometimes tempting to take-away food to enjoy in the comfort of the place you are staying, but the packaging of the food adds up to the pile of trash that is thrown away.

9. Support local industries

Sending imported goods uses up much of the worlds fossil fuel resources, compared to using products already available in Bali. By supporting local industries we can also improve the economy for the community in Bali.

10. Water preservation

The amount of clean water in Bali is slowly becoming scarcer due to over use. Small things we can do to help over come the water crisis are by taking shorter showers and turning of the taps when we brush our teeth.

Crash Course Bahasa Indonesia Apa Kabar? Baik, terima kasih Selamat pagi Selamat siang Selamat sore Selamat malam Sampai jumpa lagi Sampai nanti Nama saya... Silahkan

Bahasa Indonesia is the language spoken through the whole Indonesia. The Balinese speaks Bali language with each other, yet you will be fine with these words and short phrases.

How are you? Fine, thank you Good morning Good afternoon (< 3pm) Good afternoon (> 3 pm) Good evening See you later See you later My name is... Here you go

Permisi Tidak/ Ya Saya lapar Saya haus Ada bir? Saya mau Nasi Campur Dimana hotel? Kanan / Kiri Maaf

Try not to be not so apparent that you really want the thing you are looking at on a shop; the vendors are not stupid and can smell your desire, thus will take the advantage by putting the price high.

BEFORE ENTERING A TEMPLE, PLEASE REMIND YOURSELF: 1.To respect the place and its people: it is sacred, so do not make noise or damages and act normal. 2.That a woman who is having her period, is not allowed to enter the temple. 3. To not walk in front of a praying person.

4. Since there are ranges of shops offering pretty much the same things, you can always walk away from one shop to another if a deal cannot be reached. But walk slowly. Normally, if you offer a reasonable price on a bargain, in which the vendor can still make some profits and the price is good for you, the vendor would call you back to his/her shop as you walk away. 5. Tell the vendor that if he/she gives you a good price, than you will tell your other friends to shop from him/her. 6. Know the martket prices, or, pretend you do. By saying “I’ve seen this product before much cheaper” will probably lead to a cheaper price. 7. Have fun and stay friendly. Bargaining is part of the culture and it should be a fun activity.

4. That a priest is very important, so whenever he is praying, don’t sit higher then him and don’t bother him with your flash from your camera. 5.

Bali is divided into 8 regencies (Badung, Bangli, Buleleng, Gianyar, Jembrana, Karangasem, Klungkung and Tabanan) and 1 city (Denpasar). Unlike most of the Muslim-majority Indonesia, around 94% out of Bali’s 3 million population adhere to Balinese Hinduism, which is a combination of the existing local beliefs and Hindu influences. As the main tourist destination in Indonesia, Bali is renowned for its highly developed arts, including music, dance, sculpture, painting, metalworking and leather. The island is also the home of wildlife such as hundreds of bird species (including the endangered Bali Starling), Indian Muntjac, Mouse-deer, Leopard Cat, Black Giant Squirrel, and several species of macaque and leaf monkey.

The island’s countless natural irresistible charms have awarded Bali as one of the world’s most visited holiday destination. With its tropical climate (temperatures averaging 31 degrees Celsius, 88 fahrenheit), Bali is warm all year round – which is perfect to explore its smoking volcanoes, stepped rice fields, remote beaches, towering cliffs, famous surf breaks and the majestic thousand- yearold temples. The hospitable and friendly natives of the Balinese and their way of life are by many considered as a magnet, inspiring those who have been in the island to go back again and those who have not to come. Bali Information
