Holidays in Bali

Each country has it's own holidays and of course Bali also has some great special days to offer. Nyepi, also known as “the day of silence”, is a yearly occurrence. However, not quite as yearly as you might expect. This day celebrates the New Year’s Day of the moon calendar of Bali. This day is celebrated, but in complete silence. Shops are closed, lights are off and no cars are being used. On the day before Nyepi, it is usually normal to make as much noise as you can, using canons for example. Indonesia's Independence day: 17 August is also a famous Holiday. As the name might suggest, this is the day that the locals celebrate their freedom of life. The flags are raised, and marching bands are walking through the streets; there are also beautiful floats for everyone to see.

A customized trip with Andres

I planed my Bali tour within limited time (only 10 days before departure XD). Many thanks to Andres acknowledged my booking with short time pre-notice. He made me a fantastic Bali experiences. High recommend Andres to be your Balinese tour guide.

We traveled from the northwest to southwest of Bali. From the World heritage site (Jatiluwih Rice terraces) to the luxury bar of sunset pool party (Uluwatu cliff). Not only all the temples that I wanted to visit, but also included Culture Park. Being a Withlocals host also a certificated tour guide in Taipei city myself. I can recolonize Andres is a professional guide, indeed he gained the tour guide license since 1989, who really well know the places, familiar with locals, most important hassle free of the temple entrance ( I have been visit other temples by myself, some rules and locals vendors were really bother me). I believe I won't get any better tour than this tour. Because the places were what I want to visit ( Andres customized ), guide and driver (Andres's second son named David) both were reliable and alternative. Although we had a long day trip which I requested. How ever they were flexible of timing that I didn't fell any rush of tour duration and they drop me back to airport safely in time (traffic was pretty bad during rush hour). Very satisfied with Andres and David's service (also he willing to help to send my postcards, according my tour day was on public holiday), definitely what a great experience travel With-locals!!! ^_^

1 Day Exploring Bali's Best Sights

If you want to experience the magic of Bali, look no further- there is no better person than Andres to guide you. We had an incredible day traveling through the temples, rice fields, and lakes of Bali and it was Andres that made the experience so memorable and unique. It is not just that Andres was informative, caring, willing to do his utmost best, respectful. Most importantly, he knew the exactly right times to take us to each place, avoiding the crowds and allowing us to fully be submerged in the beauty of it all.
If you only plan to take one guided trip around Bali, Andres should be your guide!

Mount Ijen: Blue Fire & Crater lake

Andres and his team were very accommodating and insightful. I learned a great deal about the culture of Bali. The excursion to Mt. Ijen was absolutely incredible! Highly recommend it to anyone!
