Bali is a lush island to explore full of wonderful nature and an amazing cultural heritage. You can find wonderful beaches, stunning rice paddies, colorful temple decorations and smiling Balinese people.
Bali is full of Hindu temples that are unique in architecture and structure. The traditional Hindu religion in Bali is also unique and it is a real part of the Balinese daily life and culture. A visit of one of the thousands of Hindu temples is essential when visiting Bali. It is fascinating and gives an insight into the local culture. As the temples are holy places of worship, it is important to show respect and to observe certain rules during a temple visit.
For a thousand years, mornings in the heart of Bali have brought beautiful and inspiring visions of the island's terraced rice paddies. On July 2, the United Nations has added Balinese rice cultivation, known as Subak, to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
