There is an event in Bali every day

It is almost impossible not to come across some kind of feast during your stay in Bali. There are cultural and religious rituals and temple festivals in a daily basis. All you have to do is to be informed, in order to watch one or even participate. You can find information details in the give-away newspapers available in most hotels or at the posters.

 

Most important events in Bali

•             One very important holiday in Bali is Galungan. It’s about the victory of Dharma (the virtue) against Adharma (the evil).
