DID YOU KNOW ?
The largest towns are Denpasar (the capital) and Singaraja in the north of Bali.
InterContinental Bali Resort has direct access to the beach, which is fabulously well-maintained.
Life in Bali is very communal with the organisation of villages, farming and even the creative arts being decided by the community.
Most Balinese are Hindu, however it is very different from Indian Hinduism. The Balinese believe strongly in magic and the power of spirits and much of their religion is based upon this.
WHAT TO PACK
Do not forget to always wear a sarong and sash when attending ceremonies. Once you try a sarong you may never want to sleep in anything else.
There is no cold season in Bali. Bring light, casual clothing with you. Most of the time you do not need your formal attire.
Do your body a favour
Drink a lot of bottled water and eat a lot of fresh fruit.
Guests must have an International License and should always rent a car with full insurance as this will save time and money if you are involved in an accident. It is recommended to hire local drivers as driving can be dangerous in Bali.
