Pearl of Indonesia - Bali

Baku, July 23, AZERTAC

Bali is considered to be one of the most exotic islands not only in Indonesia, but also throughout the world. This island is a great place for tourists to relax.

Although Indonesia is a Muslim country, 90 percent of the Bali island’s population profess Hinduism. Bali is a tropical island, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 35 degrees Celsius during the year.

Surrounded by water on all four sides, Bali is composed of four main regions. Three of them are located in the capital Denpasar – Kuta, Seminyak and Nusa Dua, and the fourth is Ubud. Each region has its own places of interest.

Bali is famous for its historic sites, exotic temples, charming nature, hospitality, ancient culture and glamorous beaches. Bali is also an island of dreams famous for its relaxing musical, local dance, art and rituals.

For those fond of adventure, Bali offers rafting, surfing, parachuting and other entertainment. There are many restaurants, bars, spa centers and colorful nightclubs where seafood is predominant.

There are also hundreds of temples for those with an interest in historical sights on the island. One of them is the Hindu Temple of Tanah Lot. The temple sits on a rock 30 meters away from the waterfront. Here you can watch the sun rise over the Indian Ocean. Thousands of tourists come to Tanah Lot temple every year specifically for that.

In Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, it is possible to see sculptures of the goddess Wisnu and the mythical bird Garuda. It is worth noting that sculpture of Wisnu is the highest in Indonesia.

Another must-see place in Bali is Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple. Here you will get acquainted with the ancient history of Bali, learn about the local people's beliefs and see a spectacular landscape of the Indian Ocean. It should be noted that many monkeys live in and around the temple.

A trip to Bali will give everyone pleasant impressions and unforgettable moments. The beautiful climate, the delicious food, people's hospitality and mysterious places will stay in the heart of everyone traveling to Bali for a long time. The Indonesian pearl of Bali will also become a favorite destination for Azerbaijani tourists.
