Women use immature coconuts to make decorations and flower baskets. Men use the prepared bamboo rafts (called Penjors) to decorate the streets of the village. Sometimes they will test out a whole piglet as a festive food. In each village, the man is responsible for cooking a dish called Lawar made from vegetables, spices, and pork. The second day of Garongan is the day of family gatherings. In order to visit relatives and friends, this day is the day when every Balinese person will take a vacation. Kuningan Location: SakenanTemple Date: Calculated according to the Bali Calendar, the last day of the Kalonan Festival, usually in May and November. After the 10-day Kalonan Festival, Indian believers in Bali believed that their gods had returned to heaven after ending their gift of mortality for 10 days.

- Bali's carvings (wood carvings, stone carvings), paintings and handicrafts are also known for their exquisite craftsmanship and unique style. Exquisite statues and reliefs of wood and stone can be seen everywhere on the island. Therefore, the island has the reputation of “the island of art”. Mas is the island’s famous woodcarving centre. Bali's paintings are unique, mostly painted on burlap or white canvas with glue and mineral pigments. The theme is based on pastoral scenery and people's living customs, with a strong local color. Therefore, Bali is known as the "island of poetry" and "the Greek of the East." Located in the middle of the island, Bird Mu is a painting center, which houses many historical relics and huge paintings.
- In the vicinity of the bird, there is a square-shaped ancient cave, the elephant cave. The depth of the cave is only two or three meters. The cave is filled with vivid statues. There are four famous stone statues on the Kawei Mountain, and five other gods are placed in front of the big stone statue. On the mountainside, there is a pale Brazilian cold presidential palace.
- A statue of Buddha in the Elephant Cave Temple in Bali.
- There are nearly 200 religious festivals held by Balinese residents every year. Every festival, songs and dances are mixed. Due to the variety of styles in Bali, the scenery is very beautiful. Therefore, it also enjoys a variety of other names, such as "Island of the Gods", "Island of the Devil", "Romans Island", "Island of the Isles", "Island of Paradise", "Island of Magic" and so on. In the natural sciences, in 1869, the biologist Wallace also discovered that Bali is the "tip" of the Asian continent. The typical Asian animals are distributed so far, and in the east it is only separated by the strait of Lombok, which is less than 40 kilometers wide. The animal is of the Oceania species. So, Bali is
- Due to the deep religious atmosphere, almost all cultures in Bali are related to religion from form to content, and a representative introduction is made.
- Religion : There are many ways to understand religion. The most intuitive way is to look at the temple. There are many temples on Bali, and it is said that there are more than 10, 000. Many people go to Bali to see the temple and go to the Tanah Lot (TANAHOT). It is said that Bali has a volcanic eruption (three active volcanoes on the island, Batu, Pekin Mani, Agung). One of the seven temples was built, and it is famous for its combination with the land due to its rising tide. In fact, the history of the Temple of the Holy Spring is more than 700 years old, and there is a palace of Sukarno on the hill next to it. In addition, the Bukitsa Temple, located next to the Agung volcano (the holy sacred mountain of Bali, also the center of the universe), is known as the mother of the temple and is the representative of the temple on Bali.
- Music: Bamboo percussion is heard every day in a Bali hotel, but this is not a complete Balinese music. Gamalan music fusion copper music, drum music, bow string music, it is said that there are Chinese ancient music!
- Shadow Play: Piwayang, the most representative form of entertainment, the story is taken from the two epics of Hinduism, with Ramayana. Views can also have a deeper understanding of their religious stories.
- Dance: It is represented by two kinds of tribute and Baron. It is similar to our distinction between the white spring snow and the lower Liba people. It is still the subject of Ramayana. The dance movement is very monotonous and is mainly expressed by hand and eyes.
- Engraving: Stone carving is mainly concentrated in BATUBULAN, wood carving is in Mas (MAS), silverware is in Jelu (CELU), among which wood carving is the most famous, mainly the village is precious (mostly sandalwood, ebony) Wood, and teak) are mostly mythical characters.
- Painting: Mainly in Ubud (UBUD), the ARMA Art Museum is very beautiful, worth a visit, and the Naga Art Museum has many treasures. The art of painting in Bali has a profound influence on the development of the world's painting art, such as the impression master Gauguin, and the Mayor of Belgium, who came to the island in 1932, stayed and married the locals, his with Bali The style of the work caused a great response in the West.
- Handmade: The handicrafts of Bali are very distinctive in weaving and batik. Maybe many people think that there are many batik in China.
- In the middle of the island, there are famous monkey temples in the middle of the island. Monkeys are in groups. There is a beautiful Lake Biduku in the north. The famous Jingtai Mani has a cool climate, so you can look forward to the volcanic Badu volcano that peaks in the whole year. The Batu Lake under the Badu Mountain is also known for its beautiful scenery. The Giron Palace in the southeastern part of the island is home to the famous ancient Balinese court. The palace is magnificent and has a moat on all sides. The roof is painted with portraits of prisoners. Tanah Le, on the southwest coast of the island, has temples built on the shore highlands. Because of the erosion of the waves for many years, the area is 25 meters away from the island, forming an island. When the tide rises, Zhou Yu seems to sink in the waves, like water. palace.
- Banjar autonomous peace
- Balinese people not only have their own set of cognitions in religion, but also have a different version of the official management.
- Although the government has clearly defined the administrative system in the county and city villages, it is "Banjar" that really promotes the operation. "Banjar" is a small unit that is one level below the "village". It consists of a hundred households and belongs to the autonomous organization of Bali. It is not on the files of government agencies, from the wedding and funeral celebration of each household to the reward and punishment of individual behavior., through the monthly monthly meeting resolutions. The rigorous autonomous organization makes the households speak like each other, and the dogs and dogs meet to form a strong moral binding force. Therefore, although Bali is as beautiful as a paradise, it is impossible for you to have a unique hermit life.
- Aristocratic civilians sit flat
- Originating from the religious class system, it exists in Bali, but like the Balinese people's religious attitude, the Balinese people who are all in harmony with the class system are not as harsh and serious as the Indians, in Bali 4 The class is not only on the same level, but the words are not limited to high-level words or low-level words. With the penetration of economic power, the class title that was previously listed on the business card has gradually been replaced by the proud academic experience. However, entry into the country is the basic common sense. These four classes still have to be kept in mind, so as not to miss the taboos in special occasions such as sacrifices and other functions that focus on identity.
- Class name I male title I female title
- Brahmana Priest I da Bagus I da Ayu
- Ksatriya Noble I Cokorda I da Cokorda
- Waisya Craftsman I Dewa I Desah
- Sudra (Jaba civilian) I No I
- 沧海桑田 does not change color
- The Balinese people do not ask their own family members, and the foreign visitors are indifferent. The pure and easy-going attitude makes Bali a resting place for people to trust and place their hearts. What is valuable is that Bali receives millions of visitors a year, but it still does not change its color. The Bohai Sea is still the Bohai Sea, and the Sangtian is still Sangtian.
- The rules of bathing in the morning and evening and the habit of bathing have not changed for a hundred years. Although the tourists are holding the V8 group, the Balinese people still seem to have their own days, and the terraces you have seen are still waiting for you to return today. Only rice and grass varieties. More than 90% of Bali's farming area has been replanted with new varieties. Rapid growth and strong disease resistance are the new varieties to capture Bali's ability, but excessive use of pesticides is the price paid by the Balinese people, and the ecological changes lead to frogs and squids. The number is sharply reduced. The frog is the main theme of the Bali Serenade. Will one of the familiar movements be changed one day? The Balinese people have begun to ponder over this issue.
- Work hard and concentrate
- Happy days are the attitude of the Balinese people, but this does not mean slackness. In fact, the genius is bright, the men of Bali are working hard under the fields, and the women’s homes are cleaning up the preparations to take care of the animals, waiting for the sun to rise and the earth to change. When the heat is over, the men will pause their work and return home to look at their beloved cockfighting. At this time, the sleepy tourists have just left the door and saw the Barry men who are holding the cock and chatting in the street, and they are considered to be a group of people. The lazy person who produced it, over time, this unfair prejudice has become a negative impression of Balinese men passing through the world, as if the delightful terraced fields grew out of their own.
- In fact, the Balinese men are very honest, taking care of the work they do, and they are dedicated to keeping pet cockfighting. Their expectations for cockfighting are all placed on the festival of sacrifices, which is a recognized occasion for betting. The cockfighting on the court was tied with a sharp blade. After a burst of dust and chicken feathers, the winner was judged, the winner received the gambling and the dying chicken, the gambling was put into the purse, and the dead chicken was on the table.
- Bali cremation ceremony
- Balinese cremation ceremony: The oxen-type coffin represents status and identity and can only be enjoyed by nobles and monks.
- The flames turned the offerings together with the coffins into ashes, and people wished the souls of the deceased to sublimate at this moment.
- Under the influence of religious beliefs, Balinese people have their own understanding of death. Their custom is to celebrate death. After the death of the Balinese, cremation is carried out according to custom, and the souls of the undead who are not cremation are filthy and will bring disaster to people. If the cremation is not held for the deceased for a certain period of time, the soul of the deceased cannot rise to the sky and become the devil of the night. Therefore, the cremation ceremony here is very grand and one of the wonders on Bali. The cremation was held on the 42nd day after the death of the people, because the Balinese believe that after the death of the person, the soul will take 42 days to leave the body. Before the cremation, the body should be treated. First, the body is soaked with liquid made from various spices, then wrapped in cloth and placed in a bamboo basket. One day before the cremation, the relatives of the deceased wear the most beautiful costumes. The men also need to wear swords, gather together to carry out the parade, and hold a grand cultural evening in the evening, perform a pipa, dance a variety of joyful dances, people singing and dancing waiting for the next day.
- On the day of cremation, under the accompaniment of music, the nearby men rushed to pick up the body, and each of the women brought a bottle from the neighboring temple.
- The grand cremation ceremony is very expensive, sometimes as high as tens of thousands or even millions of yuan. 12 years ago, the king of Ji'anya District died, and the funeral cost up to 5 million US dollars. Large-scale cremation often has thousands of people to carry heavy bamboo towers and coffins. The height of the bamboo tower depends on the identity of the deceased. Some are as high as 20 meters, 11 to 2, and low to 3 or 4. The coffin is in the shape of an animal. The coffin of the monks and the rich is carved into a cow shape, the warrior is a flying lion, and the ordinary person is half-fish-shaped. The size of the tower-shaped bamboo frame and the grandeur of the ceremony are all based on the identity, status and financial resources of the mourner. However, the high cost of the funeral can not be afforded by many people. Therefore, the locals who are financially strapped will first bury their deceased family members. When they have enough money and have a good time, they will dig up the body and hold a cremation. This waiting time may be two to three years or more.
- In Bali, every 10 years or so, a large-scale collective cremation will be held, and everyone will share the cost. At this time, the Balinese people cleaned up all the tombs on the island, concentrating all the bodies and cheekbones, and letting those restless souls rest in peace.
- Balinese language
- Bahasa Indonesia is the official language of Indonesia and Bali, while Bahasa Bali is the dialect of the local people. English is also widely used, especially in lively sightseeing areas, where English is the most commonly used language. In addition, Dutch, German, French, Japanese and Chinese are also used in some places. In particular, the number of tourists visiting Bali in mainland China and Taiwan has increased rapidly in recent years, and as a result, there are many businesses with quick brains. The restaurant or the hawkers in the sightseeing area have also begun to learn Chinese and Ho-Chan. Because there are many old overseas Chinese who immigrated from southern Anhui, they often speak Minnan and Chinese. A little bit of the gap, but communication is absolutely no problem. Often in the sightseeing area, you will hear and say: "The circle of the 10, 000th...the yiyi (all 10, 000)!" "How much?" The hawker can't help but feel more cordial and stop. Talk to it... However, when you stop, it actually means that a large group of hawkers are coming around to "trade" with you! Haha... At this time, you have to use some methods to get away. 
- Bali is a veritable honeymoon and holiday destination. The entire itinerary should be based on leisure and vacation, with tropical beaches and cultural and artistic landscapes being its biggest selling point. For all friends who are within one week of the trip, please refer to the following suggestions to make a choice:
- As a traditional cultural and artistic center, Ubud is far from the beach and is located in the hinterland of Bali. Definitely worth living, riding a bicycle, and taking a casual look. Tegallalang, famous for its terraced scenery and handicrafts, is located near Ubud. It is more convenient to choose Ubud as the starting point for rafting or tropical jungle trekking. From low-cost Guest Houses to upscale luxury villas, there are plenty of hotels to choose from in Ubud. If the budget is sufficient, of course, the villa with private pool is preferred. Kayumanis Ubud, Pita Maha, Maya Ubud, Kajane Mua Ubud are more popular online. Since the Banyan tree has been withdrawn from business, Kamandalu Resort is in an embarrassing situation of disrepair and is not worth recommending. If the budget is limited, you can choose a homestay featuring idyllic scenery. Tegal Sari and Green Field are more popular online. Ubud's spa is highly recommended, especially if you choose to enjoy it in an open natural setting. SPA HATI has a high popularity. The top enjoyment is the Kirana Spa, which is operated by the Shiseido of Japan and the royal family of the Royal Pita Maha.
- Kuta is the second recommended stopover. The main reason is that Kuta beach is a unique surfing place in Southeast Asia. In addition to the body shape of the handsome men and women in various countries, you can also see many local people enjoying the gift of nature in the sunset on the beach. The famous beaches of other Southeast Asian islands often only see tourists. Downtown Kuta is also a tourist shopping and entertainment center in Bali, centering on the island's main shopping mall. In the evening, all kinds of nightclubs all over Kuta Street are the world of young people. Living in Kuta, you should arrange more outdoor activities such as surfing, shopping, spa, sampling local cuisine and clubbing. So it is recommended to choose an affordable hotel to sleep, and it is not wise to choose a luxury villa. The hotel next to Kuta beach (Hard Rock, etc.) is separated from the beach by a road (like the Patong beach in Phuket), so you don't have to choose an expensive sea view.
- Beach hotels in Nusa Dua, if you must live, you should choose the best hotel. Ayodya Resort Bali, Kayumanis Nusa Dua, Laguna are all recommended. Because the main activity here is to soak the hotel, the hotel's garden, pool, dining, beach view and daze facilities should be considered first. Personally, it is still unwise to choose villa in Nusa Dua. Imagine that you are lying next to a private pool next to the beach, and the people on the beach are basking in the same sun, watching the same scenery, blowing the same wind, but paying them several times more dollars. What's more, tourists who walk from time to time, especially those curious Oriental faces with cameras, will make you even more disappointed. (There is a photo below, the private pool suite on the westin beach, specially decorated tropical plants, still can not stop the envious and curious eyes of passers-by). Nusa Dua’s dining options are high, and you can take a walk outside the Nusa Dua gate at dusk, eat dinner or buy fruit and water. Westin and Laguna are very close to the gates of Nusa Dua and walk for about 20 minutes. Finally, I still insist on my suggestion: For those who have been to the Maldives, Nusa Dua hotels do not have to be arranged during the trip. Whether it's the resort's resort atmosphere or the beach, the Maldives will win.
- The tourism industry in Bali began to develop on a large scale after the opening of the Ngurah Rai International Airport in 1969. Shanu and Kuta became tourist attractions; in the 1980s, high-end resorts began to develop in Nusa Dua; in the 1990s, the wave of development It began to expand to the north and south of Kuta, ranging from Seminyak, Legian, and Jimbaran to the coastal areas, forming a vast tourist area. The northern part of Seminyak is home to the famous Tanah Lot Temple. After the bombings in Sanu and Kuta, the authorities took active measures against public security and removed some street vendors.
- The quality of the waves on the coast of southern Bali is good, and many surfers from all over the world have visited each other and become a surfing spot. Many people who depend on the surf industry for their livelihood, including surf shops and surf instructors, and even professional surfers sponsored by surfers have increased.
- Since 2012, the island has also become popular with funny flashes. Even though the average temperature is higher than 24 degrees throughout the year, there are still flash coats with large coats, masks, and sunglasses, which are flashing in the downtown area. It has caused many tourists to compete for imitation, which is another fashion trend in Bali.

- Photographs are taken during the festival of sacrifices. They are not allowed to stand in front of the crowds who worship and pray, nor can they shoot priests with flash.
- Although the Hindu class system is not strictly divided in Bali, in order to avoid breaking the priest class due to class unclear, please do not touch the child's head arbitrarily.
