Experience Local Culture at these Places in Bali

Here's a list of Experience Local Culture at these Places in Bali recommended by our experts:

Welcome to the Island of the Gods, culture vultures! A Bali holiday is incomplete without experiencing its fascinating spiritual and cultural attractions. For a truly authentic Balinese experience, make your way to Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali – where visitors tour and explore local flea markets and ancient temples. Also learn all about age-old rituals, traditional recipes, and local art and craft. This is the best of Balinese culture and experiences that you'll want to mark off your bucket list! While backpackers and groups of friends often explore Kuta for its fun party culture, Ubud is where you need to be for a more local flavour. Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the chaotic booze and bikini scene in Kuta. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists' workshops and galleries. There are plenty of historical UNESCO sites in the Indonesian archipelago that lure travellers. Tirtagangga, meaning holy water of the Ganges in Balinese, is one of the world's romantic gardens out of time. Gushing springs flowing from beneath an ancient Banyan tree and holy temple fill the myriad reflecting and swimming pools that grace the Water Palace. The prominent 11 tiered lotus fountain has become the symbol for Tirtagangga since its creation by the late Raja of Karangasem in 1948.The waters of the holy spring have been praised by island healers for their healing and youth giving powers. Thus the Raja named them after the holy river Ganges in India which is famous for these qualities. It is said that if one bathes in the waters of Tirtagangga on the full moon you will be blessed with lasting youth and your illnesses will be healed. Tirtagangga is the ""Fountain of Youth"" of Bali. Are you ready to learn a thing or two about Balinese food, dance and art? Experience local culture in Bali.. We have rounded up the best things to see and places to go to on this tropical paradise.
