Best Bali Experiences to Savour in August

Beach Festival

While all beaches in Bali always have a festive vibe, it is the Legian Beach Festival that is captivating to true beach lovers. The area is lined with markets selling traditional Balinese sovereigns. Brace yourselves for a fun-filled day as you sway to the music and dance your heart away at the beach.

Sanur Village Festival

Sanur is one of the major port regions in Bali and hence one of the coastal areas where you get to treat yourself to traditional mouthwatering Balinese cuisine and not to mention the in-depth connect you would feel with the locals who engulf you into the beauty of art and culture of Bali. Interestingly the Indonesian cuisine is a lot like Indian food but with a sprinkle of an international flavour. So you get the best of both worlds!

The Kecak Dance

This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful dance forms you will ever witness. This traditional Balinese dance form is performed by the locals at the Uluwatu temple in South Bali. The local art form depicts excerpts from the Indian epic Ramayana. Witnessing this dance form with the Uluwatu sunset in the background is a breathtaking experience.
