Indonesia Things to Do: 469 reviews and 867 photos

Bali is the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. The main attractions for this island are the beaches (for surfing and diving), the temples, cultural tourism, and art shopping. The good beaches are Kuta Beach, Sanur Beach, Uluwatu beach, Legian beach, and Jimbaran Beach. Great temples like Tanah Lot Temple, Ulun Siwi Temple, Tampak Siring Palace’s Temple, Besakih Temple are magnificent. Monkey forest is another interested place to visit in Bali along with the breathtaking sceneries. Many market and art shops for the sophisticated ones but don’t be cheated by the fake ones of the street vendors. This is the only place in Indonesia where you can do sunbath topless at the public beaches and wearing the sexiest dress you have on the streets without being embarrassed. It may be too touristic for others but the Balinesses are well known for their great attitude and manners as they believe in Karma. Most of the Balinese are Hinduisms so their religious ceremony will be the most unique one among others in Indonesia, like NYEPI (a day in silence) and NGABEN (cremation). When you are in Bali, don’t miss their exotic dances: Barong, Kecak Dance, and Pendet. Bali will be crowded in New Year, February (Mardy Grass), and June-July (summer holiday and Indonesia school holiday). Oh, one more thing…Don’t forget to bring your surfing board if you have one.
