Bali

INSIDER'S GUIDE TO BALI

Bali’s beautiful landscape and ancient culture are among the countless reasons Ethiopian supermodel and philanthropist Liya Kebede returns time and time again. From its picturesque black sand beaches to the local art markets she frequents, the city continues to fuel her creativity with each trip. “Every time I visit, I’m inspired to get up early in the morning and take a walk in the natural beauty,” she says. “I love walking through the rice paddies, and especially enjoy the sunrise, which is breathtaking."

AN ISLAND SEDUCTION OF THE SENSES

Bali’s many names, such as "Island of Peace," "Morning of the World" and "Island of Gods," all evoke its paradisiacal beauty, swept by turquoise surf and rich with lush mountainscapes and emerald-hued paddy fields. And there really is something for every traveler, from those seeking a spiritual retreat among the Hindu temples to a surfing adventure, an ultra-luxurious resort, a cultural awakening or a touch of hedonism over a Seminyak sunset. The quintessential tropical holiday island, Bali manages to be so much more with the wealth of all it offers.

WHAT TO PACK

Bathing Beauties: It's likely you’ll be spending plenty of time in a body of water, whether battling waves, relaxing at the pool, leaping off a waterfall or soaking up the benefits of a natural hot spring. 

Adaptation: Make sure your technology stay fully charged to update the folks with your adventures! Bali uses the European-style two-pin power plug and operates at 220 volts / 50Hz.

Modesty is Key: Bali’s magnificent Hindu temples are a must. Visitors must cover their shoulders and legs, so bring a large scarf or sarong with you – they are also great for the beach.

ESSENTIAL PHRASES

Bali natives speak a mixture of Bahasa Indonesia and the notoriously difficult Balinese language. With its words and phrases specific to certain castes, the extra effort of a Balinese phrase will win kudos.

Ken ken kabare? – Balinese for “How are you?”

Sing ken ken – A Balinese equivalent for “hakuna matata,” which means “no worries.”

Enak sekali – "Tasty!" The appropriate response to the numerous delicious dining opportunities afforded the traveling gourmand.

TIPS FROM A LOCAL

Watch Your Step: When entering a store or restaurant in Bali, you will find a small flower offering on the floor, called a ""Canang Sari."" Be aware and try to not step on it as it is a religious offering to the gods.

Catching a Ride: Because gas is subsidized, hopping on a taxi around the island can seem very reasonable, but make sure the meter is on and you have plenty of small denominations of cash.

Bottle It Up: Stick to bottled water for your hydration needs, as the tap water in Bali and Lombok is not potable.
