The Island of Bali is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. Located 6 degrees south of the equator, the island boasts its culture, lifestyle and practiced arts.
Its dimensions are 153 km to 112 km in its widest part. The island is also known as “The Island of the Thousand Temples” because of the churches and temples located on it.
Among the largest cities are Singaraja, Ubud and of course the capital Denpasar. And what about it?
Denpasar is modern, beautiful, loud and cosmopolitan, constantly growing over the past three decades. The city is the main administrative center of Bali, as well as a business center. There, you can find quite distinct contrasts between Hindu temples, beautiful beaches and green terraced rice fields. The busiest main street is Jalan Gajah Mada, and the most central part is Medan Puputan, also known as the Green Square, where the Bali Museum, the Governor’s Residence and the Royal Family Monument are located.
No matter how impressive the capital of Bali is, tourists generally prefer some of the more famous resorts, namely Kuta, Sanur, Nisa Dua.
We can say that Kuta is the first and largest resort of Bali. Famous for its long sandy strip and the hotels and bars located along its shore.
Sanur on the other hand is known for being more expensive because here you can find some of the more expensive hotels on the island. You should know that there are fewer night bars here than in Kuta!
Ubud in turn, boasts the best place to shop on the island plus some of the most attractive boutique hotels in the world are in it. You know… one of those with a mini pool in the courtyard of the room. 🙂
