Discovering Bali – There’s More To It Than Sun, Sea and Sand

  1. 1. Bali has to be the most well known Indonesian Island and what was once a laid back place where surfers chose to hang out has transformed itself into a holiday destination hot spot. If you’re thinking about getting married in Bali, then it’s most definitely a romantic island, with pristine sands and gorgeous weather, but you might be wondering what the island has to offer as a honeymoon destination too.
  2. 2. Fun Bali is simply awash with plenty of activities and attractions to ensure you have fun during your stay. If you’re looking to cool off and have some fun in the water, then a visit to Waterbom is a must do. This brilliant water park located in the centre of Kuta boasts more than 20 first class waterslides and leisure facilities to suit all ages. Set amongst stunning tropical gardens, it’s a fabulous place to spend the day.
  3. 3. Festivals The Balinese people devote their lives to an endless ritual of purifications, dances, processions and religious offerings and no matter what time of the year you visit, you’re bound to get caught up in the excitement of a festival. There’s a myriad of festivals including both religious and non-religious.
  4. 4. Religious festivals can last anywhere from days to weeks during which time the temples are beautifully adorned with colourful flowers, palm leaves and flags and noisy parades take place complete with food offerings and prayers. During July to October there’s the Negara Bull races to enjoy. Makeshift chariots are driven by pampered bulls who are spruced up with garlands and other accessories, and steered by jockeys using a combination of tail twisting and riding skills. It really is a sight to behold.
  5. 5. Food Eating in Bali is always a pleasure and for many is the highlight of the day. There’s a plethora of places to eat from 5 star restaurants to open sided cafés to night markets. Whatever your budget you’ll find a wide range of excellent dishes. Adventurous couples may like to try the delicious array of food served from mobile carts known as kaki limas pulled by young boys. Stand in the streets and watch as they go by and stop the one whose food you like the look of.
  6. 6. The night markets come to life at dusk and even if you can’t pluck up the courage to try the food, you simply must visit to experience the noise, smells, and sights which are such an integral part of Bali. Almost all restaurants will serve nasi goreng and mie goreng and another great favourite is Satay. Festival food, however, is much more decorative and elaborate, and for the people of Bali marks it out as a real occasion to be savoured. You may only get to eat true Balinese food by attending festivals or special Bali nights put on by restaurants where they’ll offer dishes such as suckling pig.
  7. 7. As a honeymoon destination Bali has it all and much more besides!
