The Negara Bull Races in Bali is held in Perancak, a little way away from Negara, and are a Balinese tradition. Negara Bull Races in Bali are one of the many Bali Events and Festivals in the month of June/July, and are held between July and October, on Sundays.

What is sold for tourists?

The island, as any other touristic place, offers many interesting staff. Some words about what is usually can you get in local art galleries, stores and specialized oleh-oleh (souvenir) stores.

The Dali of Bali

Antonio Blanco's world is charismatic collages and watercolours' transitions, soft tints and amazing frames, which the maestro made by himself. They include metal and wood, and even soap and cigarette. The artworks are shocking behaviour and bombast. Nevertheless, his artworks are collections of private collectors around the world. Don Antonio Blanco is often called "The Dali of Bali", but it is up to you how to call him. Anyway, most of his artworks are stricken may be not by it techniques but its elegance of frames and their harmonious match with the picture.

Candi Dasa - escape from the busy south

On the way to Amlapura, Amed or Tulamben, it is impossible to miss a small fishing village Candi Dasa. Nowadays, Candi Dasa is a modern escape from the south areas where both ways are built up by guesthouses, bungalows, hotels and villas of any choice and cost, but is still continued to be measured and calm place.

Travelling Food

First thing which was extremely interesting for me in my first days in Bali was movable food which is sold from motorcycles and carts. It is exactly so. Motorcycle is very useful tool in Indonesia. A small stall or glass case is placed on the motorcycle or cart and stocked with all necessary staff for cooking such as grill or hot boiler, small gas cylinder, fresh raw products, sauces, dishes, covers, and napkins. So, all together it creates a small mobile warung.

Gambling Kiss or Kiss Festival

Kissing is actually a taboo in public for Balinese culture. However, Balinese never mind if the tourists (especially from western part) do that in public. A tolerance is something that people love from Balinese. So, is it possible that parents making their teenagers kiss in public? Oh, yeh…

Balinese New Year

The day of strange monsters, overcrowded super markets, near-empty streets and a great number of bamboo boxes with flowers and rice, - welcome, the day of Silence is coming up!

Welcome to Bamboo Heaven

When most people think about bamboo as a building material, they envision the clunky and cumbersome 70’s style furniture which can still be found in any Balinese homes and restaurants. However, all that changed! In witness of it – a unique bamboo heaven in Green School where everything from doors to shelves is made from organic bamboo.
