Bali, the Island of Gods, a Cultural Paradise...
Posted on 09 February 2018
Bali is a spiritual place, it is no wonder that people commonly coin Bali as the Island of Gods. This little island province of Indonesia is innately Indonesian in its national identity and interestingly assimilated with aspects of Indonesian culture. Yet, Balinese people, cultural practices, history and religious heritage are distinct and especially idiosyncratic.
Attracting people from all over the world, Bali is an island that welcomes tourists with wide open arms. Other than being a welcoming tourist hub for all its visitors, Bali adapts and learns from the outside world by implementing cultures in many different parts of the world. For example, western culture is prevalent in many luxurious restaurants, clubs, bars and shopping outlets in Bali today. It is guaranteed that you will have an amazing time enjoying the spectacular nightlife, delicacies and shopping sprees when you are in Bali.

But incorporating international tastes goes hand in hand with Bali’s own beautiful culture. Although Bali is a religiously tolerant and multicultural society, majority of Balinese people are Hindu and practice Hinduism with dignity and conviction.
Visiting some of Bali’s extraordinary Hindu temples is a must. You will be amazed not only in sight of the extravagant, centuries old architecture but also learn and explore about Balinese heritage and religious customs. Packist.com recommends a visit to Uluwatu Temple so to watch the famous Kecak dance while you bask in the postcard worthy scenery and sunset. Based on top of a hill, with waves crashing at the bottom and with the company of some monkeys, Uluwatu is a place to remember.
