Seminyak
A popular beach resort area at the southern end of  Bali known for its range of luxury hotels and villas. It has a good range of quality restaurants and stylish bars making it a more upmarket part of Bali.

Ubud
Set amongst rice paddies in the foothills Ubud is more about nature and enjoying the scenery. It is also the centre for culture including crafts, dance and temples.

Nusa Dua
A quieter and generally less crowded part of Bali with great luxury accommodation options and a much slower pace.

Karangasem
Covering the eastern part of Bali Karangasem is set beneath Mount Angung and a great place to explore lush hills, villages and temples.

Uluwatu

Social customs & quirks The temples of Bali are amazingly surreal. Visitors need to wear modest clothing out of respect, which means a sarong and a sash needs to be worn. These items are available outside most major temples, usually for rent. Many of these ancient sites are home to large populations of monkeys. This is especially notable in places like Ubud and Uluwatu. The monkeys look cute, but they are prone to stealing items like food and valuables. Sometimes they can get nasty, so it is suggested that tourists don’t feed the monkeys at temples.

Festivals & events Events in Bali are focused on spirituality and celebrating life. They contain elements of tribal heritage, religion, food, and fun. Held annually in March, the Balispirit Festival is one of the top five yoga events in the world. There are over 100 health and wellness workshops, nighttime concerts, healing arts, an eco-market, and more.
