Embark on a cultural treasure hunt for the real Bali
Hankering for more than white-sand beaches, tropical sunsets and graceful Balinese dancers? Curious to venture beyond the volcanoes, forests and lush, green paddy fields? Want to see authentic art that isn’t the usual mix of batik sarongs, masks and colourful fish mobiles?
Bali is in fact brimming with different cultural influences – mixing modern trends with centuries-old traditions. From the quieter, less developed north-eastern coast to the cosmopolitan buzz of the capital Denpasar in the south, you don’t have to venture far from a luxury Balinese hotel to explore the more authentic (and often quirky) side to this Indonesian island.
