STABLISHING a close relationship should not be made in a hurry and without ethics. We must know one’s cultural background to which we will establish the relationship. Mutual understanding, respect and appreciation are some important basis in developing a lasting relationship. “Perhaps, more precisely, it is the heart-to-heart relationship,” said the owner of Bali Yuai Mansion, IGK Pujawan, who had good relations for many years with influential people in Fukuoka, Japan. “In Japanese language, such a relationship is known as kokoro to kokoro, meaning heart-to heart,” said one of the tourism figures who also once led the organization of the Indonesian Tour Guides Association (HPI) of Bali Chapter not long ago. From the mode of this relationship, several important commitments had been made and developed mainly in the field of education between Bali and Fukuoka. And some members of Bali’s delegates had already had an opportunity to make a visit to Fukuoka, including the Denpasar Mayor I.B. Rai Mantra some time ago.

F

ar from the urban hustles and bustles, today many tourists are fond of riding bicycle in some rural areas across Bali offering unparalleled panoramic views and native lives of rural communities to be natural. “The tendency of tourist today prefer to look for different atmosphere namely back to nature.

Therefore, back-to-nature tourism program is more favored,” said Chairman of the Indonesia Tour Guides Association (HPI) of Bali Chapter, I Made Sukadana, in Denpasar recently. Furthermore, Sukadana said that tourists now preferred to browse rural roads, rice fields, plantations, as well as the fields with local appealing plants. Some had a promenade and others rode a bicycle so they could feel closer to the more original nuance of Balinese nature and culture. They were also happy to climb a mountain, go down the mountain, raft and take other tourism activities. “These kind of package tours are usually preferred by

European tourists such those as from the Netherlands, France and Germany,” he said. Comparable opinion was also delivered by I.B. Nama Rupa, Operations Manager of the A True Balinese Experience (ATBE), a foundation intensely engaging in tourism activities. According to him, the main attraction for tourists today is the rice field having a tropical ambience, beautiful natural life, clean and cool air as well as the

The largest harbor on the Island of Bali during the Dutch occupation until the 1950s now remains in a distant memory. Old buildings formerly used for the office of travel administration rest in profound silent.

Have a look, every afternoon by the nightfall, local community and strangers came to your lap to relieve their fatigue, to feel your exceptional aura. “Every day, some few people faithfully come one after another to this old harbor just to laze and relax,” said a hawker who was patiently waiting for buyers at that old harbor. According to the middle-aged

M

woman, the harbor was frequently visited by people of Buleleng as well as tourists, but they were few and far between. They just came to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the beach and occasionally browsed the existing old buildings. Many also came for lunch or romantic dinner at the restaurants situated the middle of the sea. “Tourists only drop by for a while, then left immediately,” she said while looking around to see buyers who might be coming. Seeing the existing conditions, the area of harbor was nicely arranged, though some places were

left untreated. Gazebos were also built to relax. Walkways were made beautifully embellished with various goodlooking local flowers. Sanitation at the coastal area was well maintained. During the rainy season, local residents worked together to clean up the beach rubbish swept away by rivers nearby. “Yes, the government and the private sector are arranging this location as tourist destination,” said Dewa Ketut Suardipa, Chairman of the Indonesia Hotels and Restaurants Association (PHRI) of Buleleng Chapter. On that account, Dewa Dipa further added, he opened a very exotic restaurant in the middle of the sea. There sat four restaurants serving distinctive seafood.

umawati, that is how the woman who born in Tabanan, 24th April 1972 is familiarly called. She currently serves as Public Relation Manager (PRM) at Inna Kuta Beach Hotel, Cottages & Spa. She worked in that hotel since 1992 . One could say that she was a loyal employee because from the beginning of her career until now she has never exited or tried to find a job elsewhere. The educational background of the woman who likes sport, especially gymnastics is indeed from the school of tourism. Thing that is interesting is because she is not majored in marketing which is related to her current position, but she had majored in food orders. “My aim is tourism, so I chose to continue my study in the tourism school, and

I majored in food orders because I was very interested to work in restaurants,” she explained. “I also think that the orientation of the food orders department is not only in the hotel restaurant, but I can also go to restaurants outside the hotel because the skill as a waitress was pretty much required, especially in Bali,” she said calmly. At the beginning, she worked at the Inna Kuta Beach Hotel, Cottages & Spa as a waitress in a restaurant and bar of the hotel. She often moved from the restaurant to the bar, or otherwise, and it lasted long enough that from 1992 to 2004. In 2004 she moved into marketing division by following some initial selection phase first. In marketing, she is placed as a Public Relation (PR) staff, and it lasted for 2 years, then moved into sales until finally returned to PR and was promoted as a PRM. She admitted that she is really enjoying the job. Working in the hotel makes her must find out the character of the guests because she can directly interact with them. In addition, by moving the position, she also became more sociable and familiar with other staffs from various divisions. “Working in the hotel is really nice, same like what my colleagues said. In the past I can only imagine how when I interact with tourists. After I do it, I can

feel it is really enjoyable. Here I learned that there is a guest who is kind and friendly, but there is

Made Mudiana has already tens of years working in the hospitality world, especially in the field of cooking. Many hotels have used his service and he was quite quick in moving from one hotel to another. Noted that he began his career in the hospitality world by becoming Chef de Partie at the Turi Beach Hotel and Resort (July 1989 - March 1992), then moved to New Holiday Hotel in Batam (March 1992 - October 1992), and continued to become Chef de cuisine at Camp Bravo, an international camp located at Waterfront City Batam (October 1992-August 1993).

Apparently not only the hotel in Indonesia has ever used his service, but also the hotel abroad, precisely in Uzbekistan. There he worked as Executive Chef at Bumi Tashkent Int

Hotel. “There is a strange and funny event that I experienced when I set my foot in this country. I went to Uzbekistan alone with confident even though I do not know and had never come to that country before. Unfortunately, when I arrived in Uzbekistan, I was confused and went into the wrong bus until then I locked up and exploited because they think I’m lost. But perhaps because of the greatness of God so that at the moment I saw a bus heading to Tashkent and I even managed to take the opportunity to go there. Then, after that event I was escorted to the hotel and start working. That was an unforgettable experience for me,” said the man who was born on December 12th, 1965 with laughing. Besides working at the hotel, he is also following some organizations such as Indonesian Chef Association (ICA), Association of Culinary Professional Jakarta (ACP) as Training Officer and Batam Chef Club (BCC) as Chairman. Not only in the professional world, but also in the society he is well known because apparently this humorous guy is Pemangku. “Currently, my expectations might not be too much higher anymore. In the past I admitted that I was such of person who always pursues my target by moving from one hotel to another which offered higher wages, but now I think I will focus on my spiritual activities. That is also the reason of what made me decided to choose to return and work in my home town, Bali, after rejected several invitations previously. In addition, I also wanted to be more focus on the family. For me, money is important, but family come first,” he said. B N

Petitenget Temple Peti Tenget temple and beach is located at Banjar Batubelig, Kerobokan village kecamatan Kuta. To reach this object by motor vehicle from Denpasar, go westwards more or less 10 km then turn south, or to the north from Kuta following Raya Seminyak Street. Peti Tenget temple was built in the 15th century and it used to be a plot of extraordinary holy (Tenget) land, bush growth and dwelled by the I Bhuta Ijo demon that was trusted by Holy priest, Dang Hyang Nirartha to safeguard his holy box. The story told that when the priest stayed at south port (now Uluwatu), a man from Kerobokan village came asking the priest for help. He wished to cultivate the plot of land without feeling fear. The priest suggested that the people build a temple dedicated to god ‘Labuhan Masceti’ and a single closed shrine (Pagedongan) for Bhuta Ijo as a place to safeguard the priest’s box (Peti). From that time on, the temple was named Peti Tenget Temple.

split gate and a 16-meter high tower inside the temple are constructed much like ‘Candi’ in Java. The 64 stone seats, similar to megalithic ancestral shrines, commemorate warriors who died in battle. Taman Ayun Temple ‘Taman Ayun’ means beautiful garden, located in the village of Mengwi, 18 km west of Denpasar. It is indeed one of Bali’s most pic-

turesque temples. The king of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Anom, built its stately proportioned courtyards and large surrounding moat in the year 1634. Containing both the Royal family ancestral shrines and the storied MERU shrines to the major deities, Taman Ayun became the main temple for the ancient kingdom of Mengwi. BTN (BTN/*)

Uluwatu Temple At the westernmost tip of Bukit Peninsula, this is one of Bali’s nine ‘directional’ Kayangan Jagat temples. The location is dramatic, perched on the edge of a high cliff with a picturesque sunset view. The temple was first used for worship by the 11th century holy priest, Empu Kuturan, who came to Bali to bring religious law and to form Desa Adat (traditional villages). The area where spectacular sunsets can be viewed is filled with the scent of frangipani blossoms and is also the home of friendly monkeys.

Sadha Temple This temple, with decorative carvings, is famous for its intricacy and ingenuity. Dating from the Majapahit period, this originally was an old dynastic sanctuary (prasada) of Mengwi Royalty. The

river, called Kumbasari Market because the local society will feel that their shopping experience would be incomplete without going to the Kumbasari Market, especially for the Balinese who want to buy their ceremonial items. Kumbasari Market sells costume and clothing items at prices relatively cheaper than clothing items sold at the shops in Gajah Mada Street which are mostly owned by citizens of Chinese clan. Kumbasari Market was previously called Peken Payuk (pot market); it sold such items as gerabah (jar like pot), cobek (clay plates), paso (clay buckets), caratan (clay water jug), jeding (clay barrel), penyantokan (mixer from clay), coblong (clay cup),

kekeb (rice cover) and others. All of these items are used as kitchenware and for ceremony. Since this market was most popular as a place to sell payuk/ pot, hence Kumbasari Market in the past was referred to as Peken Payuk or pot market. The location of Denpasar Market is encircled by shops along the street of Gajah Mada. On the right side there is Sulawesi Street which is famous for textiles. Denpasar Traditional Market is progressively strengthening the identity of Denpasar’s economic center which is open 24 hours and is never silent or empty of visitors.

At traditional market, you will find transactions taking place between buyers and merchants with multifarious merchandise to satisfy life’s daily needs such as kitchen supplies, appliances required for Hindu ritual, fruits and tra-

A visit to this temple can be done easily because it is only a few feet below the highway toward the village of Tampaksiring Indeed this temple was built at the valley of Petanu River having beautiful natural panorama. Goa Gajah was rediscovered in 1923 and in 1954 was rediscovered the bathing pond in front of the cave followed by the restoration and reinstallation of the shower areas that originally located in front

of the cave where its condition was incomplete. In the northern part of the temple, lies a carved Cave of Nature in the shape of the letter “T”.

The tiny volcanic island of Bali is one of the most physically beautiful and culturally richplace in the world. The balmy climate hush, green rice fields and lavish productions of the HinduBalinese cultural calendar never fail to charm visitor. Bali has been famous for its art since the arrival of the first European tourist in the early 20th century. Millions tourists from around the world visited Bali every year, make it more tourist service than anywhere else in Indonesia. The beauty of Bali is not only on the mainland, but also in the marine life whose offer Underwater paradise. Here, many different sites offer the beauty of marine life, from the clear water and step walls Menjangan to the famous Tulamben wreck to the 4 knot currents and cold water of Nusa Penida.

Tulamben The Underwater Paradise But the prime location is the most famous Tulamben, located at Karangasem regency, on the northeast coast of Bali. It is a beautiful bay surrounded by luxuriant vegetation with the highest mountain on the island, Gunung Agung, behind it. A hotel right on the beach also operates as a diving center. Here is where the fantasies of many divers dwell, ideal for wreck diving, deep diving, underwater photography and night diving. Tulamben beach is a spread of black sand covered smooth, fist-size rocks, the water worn remains of rubble cast here by Gunung Agung’s 1963 eruption. In the dry season, the countryside assumes a nondescript shade of brown. The water of Tulamben is so rich because its fed by a very direct eddy off the main branch current of the Indonesian Through-flow, pulling plankton-rich water from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean. It is just 8 degrees from the equator, in the world’s richest marine bio—geographic zone; it is dry, and has non serious silting or run-off‘ problems. The wreck, rocky wall and sand slopes provide a wide variety of physical habitats. These factors, taken together, may be sufficient to explain why this single bay harbor has more species than, say, the entire Hawaiian islands chain.

In the meantime, in the southeast of Goa Gajah Temple occur two Buddha statues, one of them is without head while another is still good enough with the style of Central Java. The north side of this statue seemingly stay to stick on the cliffs, where the foot of the cliff temple has long fallen into the creek. On the side of this small can be found three-pronged relief of stupa and the ruins of the cliff temple having beautiful carvings. Based on archeological findings as mentioned above, it can be known the Goa Gajah Temple is derived from the ninth to eleventh centuries AD. In the past, it served

Kintamani as a Special Tourist Destination

Tabanan is the name of one district and town in Bali. Though Tabanan is not really a tourist town there are still some interesting aspects to it. Back in 1906 the Balinese and Dutch were fighting over control of the island. One of the more positive historical points of interest is the Subak Museum, located close to the main bypass road. While the museum itself is nothing special, it documents one of the most important social/economic/cultural institutions in Bali, the Subak. Dating back to 600AD, Bali has been using a system of un-

mechanized rice cultivation and water management. Bali’s ability to produce an endless supply of rice year round is central to its history. The Subak controls management of the watercourses, stretching all the way to the highland lakes. A farmer cannot simply flood all his fields at the same time, or divert a main stream to access more water. The system is intricate and the Subak museum is the place where it’s officially documented. Yeh Gangga, Lalang Linggah and Balian to the west are beach environments around the area. Highlights of the area close to Tabanan include Taman Kupu Kupu (Butterfly Park) in Wanasari and Yeh Panas hot springs. Pura Tanah Lot is a 15-minute drive South from Tabanan. Tanah Lot Tanah Lot, one of the most popular places of interest in Bali, is located on the coast of West Bali, at the village of Beraban in the Tabanan Regency. It is also called Tanah Let, which means ancient land, and also Tanah Lod, which mean the land to the south. The temple Pura Tanah Lot, simple in its construction, is dramatic in its ocean-front location and is one of the main temples in the worship of Balinese gods. Tanah Lot has a long history in the world of tourism. The temple itself is built on a small promontory, which is only accessible at low tide. During high water the rock takes on the appearance of a large boat at sea, such is its shape. Poisonous snakes live in the nearby caves to ‘guard’the temple and contribute to the temple’s dangerous reputation. Sunset is the best time to visit Tanah lot, when the golden red skies frame the temple and waves crash into the rocks. It is advisable to avoid the tourist crush here, as it can be severe.

WHERE TO GO . . .

Klungkung, the Smallest Regency on the Island

KLUNGKUNG Ancient Kingdoms

This is the smallest regency in Bali. It covers only 121 square kilometers and includes three islands, Nusa Penida, Lembongan and Ceningan. Despite its size, its influence on Balinese culture has been powerful. It was here, in the shadow of the holy volcano Agung, that the princes and priests of Majapahit gathered in 1343 to continue the kingdom by setting up ‘Keraton’ in Samprangan, but within a couple of generations, they moved to Gelgel and then to Klungkung, in 1710. In the 16th century the Gods smiled on Gelgel when Dalem Baturenggong reached an impressive political and cultural achievement to earn his ‘golden age’ Kertha Gosa, which is situated in the central town of Semarapura, was the place for administration and traditional justice in the pre-colonial times by a council consisting of the great king and his priests. Next to the Kertha Gosa is Taman Gili, known as a Floating House (Bale Kambang) which was the King’s Guard’s headquarters. These two buildings are decorated with

Kamasan Traditional Paintings. A colonial building, located next to these two buildings, is Semarajaya Museum, collecting some handicraft of Klungkung, pre-historic and historic articles especially those used in the period of Klungkung’s heroic battle. In the southern part of the museum area, there stands the main gate of Semarapura Palace ‘Pemedal Agung’. The newest sight in Semarapura Town is Patung Kandapat Sari, situated at the main junction of Semarapura town. Some people consider this statue as the landmark of Klungkung Regency. Next to this landmark stands an historical monument known as Monument of Klungkung Heroic Battle. This monument is a cenotaph reminiscent of an event that once took place on April 28, 1908. It is well known as ‘Puputan’, a counter-defence of The Great King of Klungkung against the Dutch soldiers. Moving south of Semarapura town along the main road, one will arrive at the ‘under construction’ area of Tourism Villages, home of traditional Painting, Kamasan Village and Bali’s original capital, Gelgel.

If you hail a taxi on the street, be sure that the name of the taxi company is clearly marked on it. 3. Insist on using the meter. Don’t fall for driver who bargains or claims that his meter is broken. 4. In the taxi, note the taxi’s number and the driver’s ID. This may be handy if you want to register a complaint or trace belongings left behind. 5. In places such as Ubud, Sanur, and Kuta there are many people who offer you transportation services. If you must take any of their services, make sure you establish the price up front. 6. There are licenced taxis at Bali’s Airport. Avoid taking services from “brokers” who offer you transportation.

river, called Kumbasari Market because the local society will feel that their shopping experience would be incomplete without going to the Kumbasari Market, especially for the Balinese who want to buy their ceremonial items. Kumbasari Market sells costume and clothing items at prices relatively cheaper than clothing items sold at the shops in Gajah Mada Street which are mostly owned by citizens of Chinese clan. Kumbasari Market was previously called Peken Payuk (pot market); it sold such items as gerabah (jar like pot), cobek (clay plates), paso (clay buckets), caratan (clay water jug), jeding (clay barrel), penyantokan (mixer from clay), coblong (clay cup),

kekeb (rice cover) and others. All of these items are used as kitchenware and for ceremony. Since this market was most popular as a place to sell payuk/ pot, hence Kumbasari Market in the past was referred to as Peken Payuk or pot market. The location of Denpasar Market is encircled by shops along the street of Gajah Mada. On the right side there is Sulawesi Street which is famous for textiles. Denpasar Traditional Market is progressively strengthening the identity of Denpasar’s economic center which is open 24 hours and is never silent or empty of visitors.

At traditional market, you will find transactions taking place between buyers and merchants with multifarious merchandise to satisfy life’s daily needs such as kitchen supplies, appliances required for Hindu ritual, fruits and tra-

Jagatnata Temple Jagatnata Temple is the biggest Hindu temple in Denpasar town, which many Hindu people in Denpasar visit to pray, particularly on full moon and new moon. This temple is full of religious and artistic ornaments. In the center of temple area, there is a high temple building encircled by the fertile tropical garden. From the entrance gate to the temple building you will find the Balinese decorations full of meaning to Hindu devotees. Bali Museum Bali Museum is located right next door to Jaganata Temple and in this museum you will find a lot of the ancient artifacts of prehistory which have very high artistic value. The collection in this museum provides a different experience on your tour. If the museum is not opened on the day of your tour, we will offer the alternative to visit Bali Art Center to see the biggest open theater in Denpasar town.

The tiny volcanic island of Bali is one of the most physically beautiful and culturally richplace in the world. The balmy climate hush, green rice fields and lavish productions of the HinduBalinese cultural calendar never fail to charm visitor. Bali has been famous for its art since the arrival of the first European tourist in the early 20th century. Millions tourists from around the world visited Bali every year, make it more tourist service than anywhere else in Indonesia. The beauty of Bali is not only on the mainland, but also in the marine life whose offer Underwater paradise. Here, many different sites offer the beauty of marine life, from the clear water and step walls Menjangan to the famous Tulamben wreck to the 4 knot currents and cold water of Nusa Penida.

Tulamben The Underwater Paradise But the prime location is the most famous Tulamben, located at Karangasem regency, on the northeast coast of Bali. It is a beautiful bay surrounded by luxuriant vegetation with the highest mountain on the island, Gunung Agung, behind it. A hotel right on the beach also operates as a diving center. Here is where the fantasies of many divers dwell, ideal for wreck diving, deep diving, underwater photography and night diving. Tulamben beach is a spread of black sand covered smooth, fist-size rocks, the water worn remains of rubble cast here by Gunung Agung’s 1963 eruption. In the dry season, the countryside assumes a nondescript shade of brown. The water of Tulamben is so rich because its fed by a very direct eddy off the main branch current of the Indonesian Through-flow, pulling plankton-rich water from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean. It is just 8 degrees from the equator, in the world’s richest marine bio—geographic zone; it is dry, and has non serious silting or run-off‘ problems. The wreck, rocky wall and sand slopes provide a wide variety of physical habitats. These factors, taken together, may be sufficient to explain why this single bay harbor has more species than, say, the entire Hawaiian islands chain.

For tourists who would like to visit to Goa Gajah Temple are required to wear a scarf or sarong because other than functioning as archaeological attractions, this temple also poses a sacred place or sanctum.

Tabanan Regency TABANAN Rainbow over ricefields

in the middle of the pond, has not been found until now. In the meantime, in the southeast of Goa Gajah Temple occur two Buddha statues, one of them is without head while another is still good enough with the style of Central Java. The north side of this statue seemingly stay to stick on the cliffs, where the foot of the cliff temple has long fallen into the creek. On the side of this small can be found three-pronged relief of stupa and the ruins of the cliff temple having beautiful carvings. Based on archeological findings as mentioned above, it can be known the Goa Gajah Temple is derived from the ninth to eleventh centuries AD. In the past, it served

Kintamani as a Special Tourist Destination

Tabanan is the name of one district and town in Bali. Though Tabanan is not really a tourist town there are still some interesting aspects to it. Back in 1906 the Balinese and Dutch were fighting over control of the island. One of the more positive historical points of interest is the Subak Museum, located close to the main bypass road. While the museum itself is nothing special, it documents one of the most important social/economic/cultural institutions in Bali, the Subak. Dating back to 600AD, Bali has been using a system of un-

mechanized rice cultivation and water management. Bali’s ability to produce an endless supply of rice year round is central to its history. The Subak controls management of the watercourses, stretching all the way to the highland lakes. A farmer cannot simply flood all his fields at the same time, or divert a main stream to access more water. The system is intricate and the Subak museum is the place where it’s officially documented. Yeh Gangga, Lalang Linggah and Balian to the west are beach environments around the area. Highlights of the area close to Tabanan include Taman Kupu Kupu (Butterfly Park) in Wanasari and Yeh Panas hot springs. Pura Tanah Lot is a 15-minute drive South from Tabanan. Tanah Lot Tanah Lot, one of the most popular places of interest in Bali, is located on the coast of West Bali, at the village of Beraban in the Tabanan Regency. It is also called Tanah Let, which means ancient land, and also Tanah Lod, which mean the land to the south. The temple Pura Tanah Lot, simple in its construction, is dramatic in its ocean-front location and is one of the main temples in the worship of Balinese gods. Tanah Lot has a long history in the world of tourism. The temple itself is built on a small promontory, which is only accessible at low tide. During high water the rock takes on the appearance of a large boat at sea, such is its shape. Poisonous snakes live in the nearby caves to ‘guard’the temple and contribute to the temple’s dangerous reputation. Sunset is the best time to visit Tanah lot, when the golden red skies frame the temple and waves crash into the rocks. It is advisable to avoid the tourist crush here, as it can be severe.

Klungkung, the Smallest Regency on the Island

KLUNGKUNG Ancient Kingdoms

This is the smallest regency in Bali. It covers only 121 square kilometers and includes three islands, Nusa Penida, Lembongan and Ceningan. Despite its size, its influence on Balinese culture has been powerful. It was here, in the shadow of the holy volcano Agung, that the princes and priests of Majapahit gathered in 1343 to continue the kingdom by setting up ‘Keraton’ in Samprangan, but within a couple of generations, they moved to Gelgel and then to Klungkung, in 1710. In the 16th century the Gods smiled on Gelgel when Dalem Baturenggong reached an impressive political and cultural achievement to earn his ‘golden age’ Kertha Gosa, which is situated in the central town of Semarapura, was the place for administration and traditional justice in the pre-colonial times by a council consisting of the great king and his priests. Next to the Kertha Gosa is Taman Gili, known as a Floating House (Bale Kambang) which was the King’s Guard’s headquarters. These two buildings are decorated with

Kamasan Traditional Paintings. A colonial building, located next to these two buildings, is Semarajaya Museum, collecting some handicraft of Klungkung, pre-historic and historic articles especially those used in the period of Klungkung’s heroic battle. In the southern part of the museum area, there stands the main gate of Semarapura Palace ‘Pemedal Agung’. The newest sight in Semarapura Town is Patung Kandapat Sari, situated at the main junction of Semarapura town. Some people consider this statue as the landmark of Klungkung Regency. Next to this landmark stands an historical monument known as Monument of Klungkung Heroic Battle. This monument is a cenotaph reminiscent of an event that once took place on April 28, 1908. It is well known as ‘Puputan’, a counter-defence of The Great King of Klungkung against the Dutch soldiers. Moving south of Semarapura town along the main road, one will arrive at the ‘under construction’ area of Tourism Villages, home of traditional Painting, Kamasan Village and Bali’s original capital, Gelgel.

Petitenget Temple Peti Tenget temple and beach is located at Banjar Batubelig, Kerobokan village kecamatan Kuta. To reach this object by motor vehicle from Denpasar, go westwards more or less 10 km then turn south, or to the north from Kuta following Raya Seminyak Street. Peti Tenget temple was built in the 15th century and it used to be a plot of extraordinary holy (Tenget) land, bush growth and dwelled by the I Bhuta Ijo demon that was trusted by Holy priest, Dang Hyang Nirartha to safeguard his holy box. The story told that when the priest stayed at south port (now Uluwatu), a man from Kerobokan village came asking the priest for help. He wished to cultivate the plot of land without feeling fear. The priest suggested that the people build a temple dedicated to god ‘Labuhan Masceti’ and a single closed shrine (Pagedongan) for Bhuta Ijo as a place to safeguard the priest’s box (Peti). From that time on, the temple was named Peti Tenget Temple.

split gate and a 16-meter high tower inside the temple are constructed much like ‘Candi’ in Java. The 64 stone seats, similar to megalithic ancestral shrines, commemorate warriors who died in battle. Taman Ayun Temple ‘Taman Ayun’ means beautiful garden, located in the village of Mengwi, 18 km west of Denpasar. It is indeed one of Bali’s most pic-

turesque temples. The king of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Anom, built its stately proportioned courtyards and large surrounding moat in the year 1634. Containing both the Royal family ancestral shrines and the storied MERU shrines to the major deities, Taman Ayun became the main temple for the ancient kingdom of Mengwi. BTN (BTN/*)

Uluwatu Temple At the westernmost tip of Bukit Peninsula, this is one of Bali’s nine ‘directional’ Kayangan Jagat temples. The location is dramatic, perched on the edge of a high cliff with a picturesque sunset view. The temple was first used for worship by the 11th century holy priest, Empu Kuturan, who came to Bali to bring religious law and to form Desa Adat (traditional villages). The area where spectacular sunsets can be viewed is filled with the scent of frangipani blossoms and is also the home of friendly monkeys.

Sadha Temple This temple, with decorative carvings, is famous for its intricacy and ingenuity. Dating from the Majapahit period, this originally was an old dynastic sanctuary (prasada) of Mengwi Royalty. The

Thing that is interesting is because she is not majored in marketing which is related to her current position, but she had majored in food orders. “My aim is tourism, so I chose to continue my study in the tourism school, and

I majored in food orders because I was very interested to work in restaurants,” she explained. “I also think that the orientation of the food orders department is not only in the hotel restaurant, but I can also go to restaurants outside the hotel because the skill as a waitress was pretty much required, especially in Bali,” she said calmly. At the beginning, she worked at the Inna Kuta Beach Hotel, Cottages & Spa as a waitress in a restaurant and bar of the hotel. She often moved from the restaurant to the bar, or otherwise, and it lasted long enough that from 1992 to 2004.

In addition, by moving the position, she also became more sociable and familiar with other staffs from various divisions. “Working in the hotel is really nice, same like what my colleagues said. In the past I can only imagine how when I interact with tourists. After I do it, I can

feel it is really enjoyable. Here I learned that there is a guest who is kind and friendly, but there is

Apparently not only the hotel in Indonesia has ever used his service, but also the hotel abroad, precisely in Uzbekistan. There he worked as Executive Chef at Bumi Tashkent Int

Hotel. “There is a strange and funny event that I experienced when I set my foot in this country. I went to Uzbekistan alone with confident even though I do not know and had never come to that country before. Unfortunately, when I arrived in Uzbekistan, I was confused and went into the wrong bus until then I locked up and exploited because they think I’m lost. But perhaps because of the greatness of God so that at the moment I saw a bus heading to Tashkent and I even managed to take the opportunity to go there. Then, after that event I was escorted to the hotel and start working. That was an unforgettable experience for me,” said the man who was born on December 12th, 1965 with laughing. Besides working at the hotel, he is also following some organizations such as Indonesian Chef Association (ICA), Association of Culinary Professional Jakarta (ACP) as Training Officer and Batam Chef Club (BCC) as Chairman. Not only in the professional world, but also in the society he is well known because apparently this humorous guy is Pemangku. “Currently, my expectations might not be too much higher anymore. In the past I admitted that I was such of person who always pursues my target by moving from one hotel to another which offered higher wages, but now I think I will focus on my spiritual activities. That is also the reason of what made me decided to choose to return and work in my home town, Bali, after rejected several invitations previously. In addition, I also wanted to be more focus on the family. For me, money is important, but family come first,” he said. B N

Sweet Memories Left at Buleleng Harbor GREAT name of the Buleleng Harbor virtually leaves no traces. The largest harbor on the Island of Bali during the Dutch occupation until the 1950s now remains in a distant memory. Old buildings formerly used for the office of travel administration rest in profound silent. Moreover, sea breezes no longer tell stories about who will be coming next. y beloved harbor, your face is not as sweet as the first time we met, but the story of your marvelous beauty is able to heal people who fell into deep loneliness. Have a look, every afternoon by the nightfall, local community and strangers came to your lap to relieve their fatigue, to feel your exceptional aura. “Every day, some few people faithfully come one after another to this old harbor just to laze and relax,” said a hawker who was patiently waiting for buyers at that old harbor. According to the middle-aged

M

woman, the harbor was frequently visited by people of Buleleng as well as tourists, but they were few and far between. They just came to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the beach and occasionally browsed the existing old buildings. Many also came for lunch or romantic dinner at the restaurants situated the middle of the sea. “Tourists only drop by for a while, then left immediately,” she said while looking around to see buyers who might be coming. Seeing the existing conditions, the area of harbor was nicely arranged, though some places were

left untreated. Gazebos were also built to relax. Walkways were made beautifully embellished with various goodlooking local flowers. Sanitation at the coastal area was well maintained. During the rainy season, local residents worked together to clean up the beach rubbish swept away by rivers nearby. “Yes, the government and the private sector are arranging this location as tourist destination,” said Dewa Ketut Suardipa, Chairman of the Indonesia Hotels and Restaurants Association (PHRI) of Buleleng Chapter. On that account, Dewa Dipa further added, he opened a very exotic restaurant in the middle of the sea. There sat four restaurants serving distinctive seafood. Nevertheless, Dewa Dipa said that to make it into an ideal tourist destination, the former harbor of Buleleng needed more organizing in terms of the security, sanitation and other supporting facilities. he said.

So, what is next? “The best solution, in my opinion, is building a new airport in North Bali to speed up the overall development in the North Bali. It will not only have an impact on tourism, though it is the backbone at the end,” said the Governor of Bali I Made Mangku Pastika when receiving the visit of the press award committee of the K.

Simply, it could be carried out by attending various tourism events held by other regencies, such as the Nusa Dua Fiesta, Kuta Karnival, Sanur Village Festival and other tourism activities. “Please have a look, other regencies promoted their tourism potential in Bali.

Exploring a sneaky path by riding a bicycle on a country road and even among the rice fields of the villagers really kindles a very impressive experience.

F

ar from the urban hustles and bustles, today many tourists are fond of riding bicycle in some rural areas across Bali offering unparalleled panoramic views and native lives of rural communities to be natural. “The tendency of tourist today prefer to look for different atmosphere namely back to nature. Primarily, it occurs to the tourists who have repeatedly come to Bali, so they can feel the atmosphere familiarly. Therefore, back-to-nature tourism program is more favored,” said Chairman of the Indonesia Tour Guides Association (HPI) of Bali Chapter, I Made Sukadana, in Denpasar recently. Furthermore, Sukadana said that tourists now preferred to browse rural roads, rice fields, plantations, as well as the fields with local appealing plants. Some had a promenade and others rode a bicycle so they could feel closer to the more original nuance of Balinese nature and culture. They were also happy to climb a mountain, go down the mountain, raft and take other tourism activities. “These kind of package tours are usually preferred by

European tourists such those as from the Netherlands, France and Germany,” he said. Comparable opinion was also delivered by I.B. Nama Rupa, Operations Manager of the A True Balinese Experience (ATBE), a foundation intensely engaging in tourism activities. According to him, the main attraction for tourists today is the rice field having a tropical ambience, beautiful natural life, clean and cool air as well as the

STABLISHING a close relationship should not be made in a hurry and without ethics. We must know one’s cultural background to which we will establish the relationship. Mutual understanding, respect and appreciation are some important basis in developing a lasting relationship. “Perhaps, more precisely, it is the heart-to-heart relationship,” said the owner of Bali Yuai Mansion, IGK Pujawan, who had good relations for many years with influential people in Fukuoka, Japan. “In Japanese language, such a relationship is known as kokoro to kokoro, meaning heart-to heart,” said one of the tourism figures who also once led the organization of the Indonesian Tour Guides Association (HPI) of Bali Chapter not long ago. From the mode of this relationship, several important commitments had been made and developed mainly in the field of education between Bali and Fukuoka. And some members of Bali’s delegates had already had an opportunity to make a visit to Fukuoka, including the Denpasar Mayor I.B. Rai Mantra some time ago.
