Bali is small, stretching approximately 145 km from east to west, and 80 km from north to south. Bali boasts a tropical climate with just two seasons (rainy & sunny) a year with and an average temperature of around 28°C. The main product is coffee, spices, tea, copra, vegetables, fruits, rice and cattle. Every aspect of Balinese life is steeped in religious belief that’s mean the Balinese have strong spiritual roots.
By the way, Bali is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations on the earth.
What’s the religion in Bali?
Ninety percent of Balinese are Hindu and around five percent Muslim. The remaining five percent practice Buddhism or Christianity. As I already said, the main religion is Agama Hindu Dharma, which all-though originally from India, is composed of a unique blend of Hindu, Buddhist, Javanese and ancient indigenous beliefs; it’s very different from the Hinduism practiced in India today.
As you know, Bali is a famous center for artistic creativity and gallery. The heart of the Balinese Art is located in Ubud (central Bali). Where you can find plenty of galleries and the beautiful arts.
Art Galleries in Ubud
- Komaneka Gallery
Contemporary paintings and sculptures by Balinese and South East Asian Artists.
- Sika Gallery It’s an eclectic mix of art and artists.
- Ubud Styles

By Bus – Cheap but slow. The Perama Bus Company Here
By Boat – Some of them are expensive and some of them are not expensive but they are pretty fast. Your Boat here
By Rental Car with Driver – using a rental car with a driver is certainly cheaper than a taxi. Most of the drivers are usually English-speaking and they can also act as informal tourist guides.
By Bicycle – It’s possible, but sometimes more difficult.
