EXPLORE THE “Island of the Gods”
Bali is a popular tourist destination and in March 2017, TripAdvisor named the island as the world's top tourist destination. Legend says that the island of Bali was created by gods themselves; this place will enchant you with its fascinating Hindu temples. Bali is a great choice for most of the people who decide to spend their vacation in an exotic place as it is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. The rich and diverse culture of Bali plays out at all levels of life, from the exquisite flower-petal offerings placed everywhere, to the processions of joyfully garbed locals, shutting down major roads as they march to one of the myriad temple ceremonies, to the otherworldly traditional music and dance performed island-wide. Almost everything has spiritual meaning.

Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity, is the oldest healthcare system in the world and it combines the profound thoughts of medicine and philosophy. Ayurveda focuses upon the preservation as well as the promotion of positive health, which is essential towards the prevention of disease. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance
Sightseeings in and around Bali:
Bali is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. The Island of the Gods offers great beaches, countless waves for surfing and wonderful natural sites to visit and explore, colorful ceremonies, and gifted artists. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or commune with the tropical creatures as you dive along coral ridges or the colorful wreck of a WWII war ship. On shore, the lush jungle shelters stone temples and mischievous monkeys. The “artistic capital” of Ubud is the perfect place to see a cultural dance performance, take a batik or silver-smithing workshop, or invigorate your mind and body in a yoga class.
