Art and culture enthusiasts will love the rich Bali culture and everything it has to offer. Balinese life is rife with celebration infused with religion, worship, and art. Artists have been fascinated by cultural diversity in Bali for over a century, and visitors have a lot to explore while here.
If you’re not sure which Bali culture activity to plan first, here are four places in the “Island of the Gods” you won’t want to miss miss:
Many people say visiting the local villages are one of the most memorable experiences of their stay. We highly recommend scheduling a tour! Our Bali Adventure tour with Bali Eco Cycling will take you around many “real” areas of Bali to see how the locals live.
Plan to take a trip through the nearby villages to see the smiling natives and enjoy a trek through the magnificent Bali rice paddies. There’s no better way to immerse yourself in the modern Bali culture than seeing how its people live, work, and play each day. Guided tours will include some history of the Balinese culture and their relationship to the island.
There are many great temples to teach you about Bali culture. During our Balinese Culture tour, you can visit the Besakih Mother Temple, the holiest and largest Hindu temple in Bali with 86 or more temples, mountains, and rice paddy fields surrounding the complex located on the slopes of Mount Agung.
Other great temples to check out include:
Built in the early 19th century, the Royal Palace in Ubud (known as Puri Saren by locals) remains one of the main cultural attractions in Ubud. You can enjoy its gorgeous architecture, local art market, and lovely gardens. Through Blue Karma’s Balinese Culture tour, you can also view a Balinese dance performance at the palace at night. This is a nice location for kids and adults alike.
Balinese Culture Creation was created to help visitors to the island truly understand what’s special about Balinese culture and artwork. They offer unique opportunities to take courses and classes on Bali culture during your stay, including programs on Balinese painting, dance, cooking, wood carving, silver jewelry making, and more for visitors of all ages.
If you’re looking for a real hands-on experience during your Bali vacation, taking a class or two is a great idea.
