Beauty, Diversity, Memory and All Nice Things About Bali

“Bali for tourism? NO! Tourism for Bali? YES!”

Well, this is a motto from HPI, an organization which protects tourism in Bali. It is nice and well said, isn’t it? I got it when I was visiting their office almost a month ago. This motto is short but it clearly states about how tourism industries in Bali develop which protects Bali quite well. In this motto, they want people in Bali to work together to develop tourism in Bali without disregarding its culture. They keep on dancing traditional dances such as Kecak dance, keep on wearing traditional clothes in many occasions, keep on designing their home according to the custom rule, and etc. These side of them are very unique. They have their own identity which is different from the other tribes. But Bali is not only about the culture. The beauty of nature occurs in Bali. Starting from the beaches, waterfalls, mountains, hills, lakes, rivers, sea etc., we can find all of them in Bali. Huge trees and vast paddies field are the most common view in Bali, especially when we are in Tabanan region. No wonder if you look at the google map using satelite option, you will see Bali mostly in green color.

Because of the richness of its culture and its nature, people has realized that Bali has a good prospect. It can attract many tourists to come which is good for their economic matters. Then they have started to learn how to manage business and tourism professionally and how to produce and how to market local products. Most of Balinese make a living from tourism.

at tanah lot beach

New day, new month, and new year. Yeah!

Tanah Lot beach is my next destination on my second day in Bali. We went there around 3.30 p.m arrived at 5.00 p.m. It took enough time to reach the beach because there was heavy rain and still had traffic in some ways. So my advice if you are in Bali on the first day of a new year is you must be patient! That’s it. But traffic not so bad actually if you can enjoy it by looking at the scenery. When I was stuck in road, I took some photos that taking of my attention.
