Upon arrival in Ngurah Rai Airport, we were supposed to catch a cab to Ubud but because the fare was too expensive (180,000Rp), we decided that we walked out of the Airport to a small village to catch a bus (called "bemo") to Denpasar, the hub of all public transports in Bali. Arriving Denpasar which was in mid noon, we changed our plans and opt to spend a night in Denpasar to find what Denpasar has to offer. Be surprised, Denpasar deserves at least a day stay ....

"Canang" ("offerings to gods") - in the form of a tray or cone made of palm leaves (either young coconut leaves or the palas leaves) or banana leaves and filled with fresh flowers and tidbits(biscuits, sweets or boiled rice), are being offered to gods in the pura and sometimes just placed at the entrance of the houses or shops, usually accompanied by a burning jossstick.
