Bali Map - Indo Bali Hotel
The island of Bali remains fiercely attractive to the visitor. They come
here in search of character; their own perhaps! More significantly the
journey to Bali should be undertaken to seek an understanding of a way
of life that is truly unique.This journey cannot be undertaken in a short,
jet-hop span, rather you soon realize that you could spend a lifetime
in Bali and still feel there is more to be seen, heard and understood.
No matter how often you watch a barong performance, or the kecak, or hear
the gamelan, each time you are there, something deep inside you reminds
you that it's a new happening, a re-discovery.
There are several other dances that could excite you. There is the gambuh
- a classical form of dance-drama, the topeng, which is traditional masked
dance, the Baris or the warrior's dance, legong, the Dance of the Heavenly
Nymphs, the kebyar which is a flashy modern dance and the Shanghyang Dedari,
the ritual trance dance.To first time visitors, who has been fed on leaflets
and travel brochures, Bali appears as a holiday retreat, of beautiful
beaches, a place in the sun. it can even be mistaken for a land on a perpetual
holiday. But Bali is more than that.
