With a reputation as being one of the most beautiful and diverse spots in Asia, Bali attracts almost 1,000,000 visitor a year, from all around the world.

The tallest is Gunung Agung, which last erupted in 1963, and is 3,142 m. at its highest point.

Lying just 8* south of the Equator, Bali boasts a tropical climate with just two seasons, wet and dry, a year and an everage annual temperature of around 28* C.the rich volcanic soil and healthy monsoon season make this island extremely fertile and a range of crops are grown here. The wide and gently sloping southn regions play host to Bali’s famed rice terraces, among some of the most spectacular in the world. In the hilly, northern coastal regions, the main produce is coffe, copra, spices, vegetables, cattl and rice.The Balinese people have strong spiritual roots and despite the large influx of tourist over the years, their culture is still very much alive. The main religion is Agama Hindu Dharma, which arrived in bali with the spread of Hinduism Through Sumatra and Java during The 11th century. Althought originally from India, the Balinese religion is a unique blen of Hindu, buddist, Javanese and ancient indigenous beliefs, with custom that are very different from the traditional form of Hinduism practiced in India today. With the arrival of Islam in neighbouring Java during the 15th century, a large number of courtiers, artists, musicians,and craftsmen fled to Bali, creating an artistic renaissance.

Naturally creative, the Balinese have traditionally used their talens for religious purpose and most of the beautiful work to be seen here, has been inspiredby stories from the Ramayana and other hindu epics. The incredibly colourful cremation pyres and the everyday offerings to the gods, placed inside every shop and business, are made with an eye for detail and beauty.
