Bali Island Of The Gods Even today, there is magic about Bali.
The longer one stays on the island, the more one is impressed by the many exquisite sights and the scores of talented and charming people one encounters. All the tourist hype aside, Bali truly is exceptional. The island of Bali indeed presents a modern paradox – an ancient, traditional society that is still incredibly alive and vital.
While the basic conservatism of the Balinese has enabled them to preserve many of their past achievements, it has never hindered the acceptance of new and innovative elements, whether home–grown or foreign. First and foremost, Bali is extraordinarily blessed by nature. Lying within a narrow band of the tropics where the wet and dry seasons fall roughly into balance – providing both adequate rainfall and long periods of sunshine – the island’s soils, topography and water resources are all remarkably well suited to human habitation. As a result, Bali has been civilized since very early times.
This is also the only island in inner Indonesia that has enjoyed centuries of more or less uninterrupted cultural continuity. While other traditional states in the region suffered major disruptions due to Islamization and Dutch colonization, Bali was isolated, left to go her own way. As a result, this is the only area of Indonesia that remains “Hindu today – retaining elements of the great fusion of indigenous and Indian cultures which took place over a thousand years ago.
When Bali was finally colonized by the Dutch, at the turn of this century, the European invaders were so fascinated by what they found here that concerted effort was made to preserve and foster the island’s traditional culture. Balinese society remains strong and vital, because it promotes the family and communal values. This is indeed the key – a self – strengthening system in which religion, custom and art combine with age old child rearing techniques and deeply entrenched village institutions to produce an exceptionally well integrated society. Feelings of alienation from parents and peers, so common now in the West, are rare in Bali.
Children are carried everywhere until they are at least three months old, held at all times in the warm, protective embrace of family, friends and neighbours. Elaborate rituals are performed at frequent intervals to ensure their well-being. Every aspect of village life is organized to the next degree. The individual’s rights and responsibilities within the community being carefully defined by a strong tradition.
Bali is a truly unique destination
General Information’s :
Currency and banking The local currency is the Indonesian rupiah ('Rp' or 'IDR'). There are Rp100, Rp500, and Rp1,000 coins and Rp1,000, Rp5,000, Rp10,000, Rp20,000, Rp50,000, and Rp100,000 paper notes. Compare the exchange rates on offer before changing money at money changers or banks. Although banks may offer an added measure of professionalism and security, it's not uncommon for money changers to offer better rates.
Balinese show respect by dressing neatly and modestly. Very informal dress can be considered offensive and is prohibited when visiting government offices or temples. Given the tropical climate, it is best to bring suitably light clothing. If you plan to spend any time in the mountains, however, it would also be wise to bring some warmer clothing; it can get somewhat cool at night at the higher elevations. Be aware that it is customary to take off one's shoes before entering someone's house.
Indonesian law forbids visitors from bringing weapons, illegal drugs, or pornography into the country. Penalties can be severe and include death for weapons or drugs. You may bring a maximum of two liters of alcohol, 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars or 100 grams of tobacco, and a reasonable amount of perfume with you. Visitors must surrender a signed customs declaration in order to clear customs inspection upon arrival.
