Welcome to Bali

The mere mention of Bali evokes thoughts of paradise. It’s more than a place; it’s a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind. Bali’s rich culture manifests at all levels of life, from exquisite flower-petal offerings to traditional music and dance. Add in great beaches, world-class surfing, superb dining, stunning sunsets and fabulous shopping, and Bali is simply unbeatable.

Bali’s local cuisine, whether truly Balinese or influenced by the rest of Indonesia and Asia, draws from the bounty of fresh local foods and is rich with spices and flavours. Savour it at roadside warungs (simple cafes) or top-end restaurants. For tastes further afield, explore restaurants offering some of the best dining in the region.


Balinese Cuisine
The fragrant aromas of Balinese cooking will taunt you wherever you go. Even in your average village compound, the finest food is prepared fresh every day. Women go to their local marketplace first thing in the morning to buy whatever produce has been brought from the farms overnight and cook enough to last well into the evening. The dishes are covered on a table or stored in a glass cabinet for family members to serve themselves throughout the day.

Fast Food Bali-Style
Often, the most authentic Balinese food is found street-side. Locals of all stripes gather around simple food stalls in markets and on village streets, wave down pedagang (mobile traders) who ferry sweet and savoury snacks around by bicycle or motorcycle, and queue for sate or bakso (Chinese meatballs in a light soup) at the kakilima carts. Kakilima translates as something five-legged and refers to the three legs of the cart and the two of the vendor, who is usually Javanese.

Vegetarian Dreams
Bali is a dream come true for vegetarians. Tofu and tempe are part of the staple diet, and many tasty local favourites just happen to be vege-tarian. Try nasi saur (rice flavoured with toasted coconut and accompanied by tofu, tempe , vegetables and sometimes egg), urap (a delightful blend of steamed vegetables mixed with grated coconut and spices), gado gado (tofu and tempe mixed with steamed vegetables, boiled egg and peanut sauce) and sayur hijau (leafy green vegetables, usually kangkung – water spinach – flavoured with a tomato-chilli sauce).

Bali’s Best Restaurants
Bali Asli Ultra-fresh nasi campur and spectacular views over rice terraces are on offer at this hybrid restaurant and cooking school.
Sardine Amid the south Bali hubbub, this oasis is set on a private rice field: exquisite seafood, great bar.
Mozaic A long-time trend-setter of fine dining in a beautiful Ubud garden.
Hujon Locale Will Meyrick’s stylish and casual farm-to-table eatery is emphatically and deliciously on-trend.
Bumbu Bali 1 A superb restaurant offering both exquisite dishes and well-regarded cooking classes.

Drinking & Nightlife

Unlike other parts of Indonesia, Bali revels in drinking and nightlife. From coffee and fresh juices to the iconic Bintang beer and tropical cocktails, there’s something to quaff for every taste and mood. Where to imbibe is even more varied: from beachside cafes to high-concept nightspots, you’re never far from your next drink.


Beer & Wine
Beer drinkers are well catered for in Bali thanks to Indonesia’s ubiquitous crisp, clean national lager, Bintang. Bali Hai beer sounds promising, but isn’t.
Wine connoisseurs had better have a fat wallet. The abundance of high-end eateries and hotels has made fine vino from the world’s best regions widely available but it is whacked with hefty taxes. Medium-grade bottles from Australia go for US$50.

Local Booze
At large social gatherings, Balinese men might indulge in arak (fermented wine made from rice or palms or…other materials) but generally they are not big drinkers. Watch out for adulterated arak, which is rare but can be poisonous.

Fresh Juice
Local nonalcoholic refreshments are available from markets, street vendors, some warungs and many cafes. They are tasty and even a little psychedelic (in colour) – and without the hangover! One of Bali’s most popular drinks is cendol, an interesting mix of palm sugar, fresh coconut milk and crushed ice, with various other flavourings and floaties.

Coffee & Tea
Many Western cafes sell imported coffees and teas alongside local brands, some of which are very good.
The most expensive (and most overhyped) coffee is Indonesia’s peculiar kopi luwak. Around 200,000Rp a cup, it’s named after the catlike civet (luwak), indigenous to Sulawesi, Sumatra and Java, that feasts on ripe coffee cherries. Entrepreneurs initially collected the intact beans found in the civet’s droppings and processed them to produce a supposedly extra-piquant brew. Now that interest in kopi luwak has exceeded all reason, trouble abounds, from fraudulent claims to documented animal mistreatment.

Best Beach Clubs
Omnia Bali’s hottest southernmost day club blasts hip-hop beats over the cliffs of the Bukit peninsula.
Potato Head It doesn’t get any more stylish than this multilevel lounge and venue right on the beach.
Mrs Sippy Mediterranean-style beach hang-out with three levels of diving platforms.
La Plancha Bask under coloured umbrellas on the sand before the DJ gets the beach party started.
Best Partying
La Favela Through Bali’s most alluring entrance, you’ll find a bar filled with boho fun.
Jenja Slick, multilevel nightclub with well-heeled locals and expats.
Best Coffee
Full Circle Contemporary Australian coffee style has arrived in Ubud at this sleek cafe and coffee roastery.
Revolver Retro, Wild West–inspired coffee bar with stellar brews and bites.
Bhineka Djaja Locally grown beans and a mean espresso on Denpasar’s old main drag.


Some consider Bali a great destination for shopping; for others it’s their destiny. With designer boutiques (Bali has a thriving fashion industry), slick galleries, wholesale emporiums and family-run workshops, Bali’s shops could occupy days of your holiday.


Seminyak’s Shops
Shopping in Seminyak and Kerobokan is reason enough to visit Bali – the choice is extraordinary. Along with countless open-air markets selling typical Balinese treasures like rattan handbags and sarongs, there are surf shops, fashion boutiques and jewellery designers galore.

Shopping Ubud
Ubud is home to art shops, boutiques and galleries. Many offer items that have been made locally. There’s also an enormous number of craft galleries, studios and workshops in villages north and south.
The area’s main shopping strip has moved to Jl Peliatan in Tebesaya and Peliatan. Here you’ll find all the stores and shops that supply locals with their daily needs.

Bargaining can be an enjoyable part of shopping in Bali. Try following these steps:
A Have some idea of the item’s worth.
A Establish a starting price – ask the seller for their price.
A Your first offer can be from one-third to two-thirds of that price.
A If you don’t like the price, walk – the vendor may go lower.
A When you name a price, you’re committed – you must buy if your offer is accepted.
