About Bali elsewhere
"Here is a list of Bali Hotels based on reviews from across the web."
epictrip.com: Bali Hotels
"American Express -- There is an American Express branch in the Grand Bali Beach Hotel, in Sanur (tel."
"Seminyak , Sanur and Jimbaran offer a fairly happy compromise if you want beaches, nightlife and some quiet, while Ubud 's hotels and resorts cater to those who prefer spas and cultural pursuits over surfing and booze."
"In places like Kuta, Sanur and Nusa Dua you will."
"Every evening coach-loads of tourists from Kuta, Legian and Sanur make their way through a labyrinth of lanes lined by souvenir-sellers to enjoy the magnificent spectacle of the sun setting behind the little temple on a rocky islet off the coast."
"The earliest written records are inscriptions on a stone pillar near Sanur dating from around the 9th century AD. Hindu Java began to spread its influence into Bali in the first half of the 11th century, when the rock-cut memorials at Gunung Kawi were sculpted."
"Bali is one of over 13,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago and is located just over 2 kilometres from the eastern tip of the island of Java and west of the island of Lombok."
"Bali has been inhabited since early prehistoric times firstly by descendants of a prehistoric race who migrated through mainland Asia to the Indonesian archipelago ,thought to have first settled in Bali around 3000 BC."
"There is also little known about Bali during the period when Indian traders brought Hinduism to the Indonesian archipelago."
"Less developed than Bali, Lombok has better beaches, a bigger volcano and more varied landscapes."
"Water sports: the usual snorkelling and windsurfing off Bali, Lombok and Gili, with some mini-surf off Kuta beach and good scuba in varied locations."
Ubud is the 'Cultural' capital of Bali. It's up in the hills and is cooler that the beach towns. Ubud has museums, palaces, wonderful traditional dances, very good and inexpensive shops and great 5* restaurants.
Moziac and Lamak are the 2 best places to eat. Naughty Nuri's is the most fun place to eat AND meet people.
Be sure to go to the palace in the center of Ubud at 6PM and get a ticket (about US$5) for the dances they have there every night (each night is a different dance)
Good manners are very important to Indonesian people, and since you will be treated as an honored guest in this country, it is only right to repay that courtesy by showing respect for the traditions and culture. Never touch somebody’s head unless you become very close friend. If you see any offerings on the pedestrian walk, try to walk beside them, do not step on, because offerings for Balinese is an very important and very sacred. And when you come upon procession either while you’re driving or walking in the street, please be patient and you should treat them with respect. Don’t walk in front of people praying and never sit higher than priest. For woman during menstruation are not allowed enter the temple.
On the Road

Its a beautiful temple, however if you do intend to come here. Get a tour guide from town to bring you. Or else, you will be asked to make all kind of entrance payment and donation. Look out for child beggars!! They are everywhere!
