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.

1 Day Exploring Bali's Best Sights

Andres is the best! If you have only one day to see everything, if you don't want to ride a bike read map and contract for everything, if you wish a guide who knows all of Bali and speaks italian, spanish, portughes and english, who can read in your head when you need to stop to take a photo..this is the perfect guide for you! With him you will see things that otherwise will never see: alone is worth the price of the trip!

1 Day Exploring Bali's Best Sights

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a long journey but definitely worth it!
Our guide was really helpful, told us a lot about the Balinese culture and showed us 5 different temples in a day, and they were absolutely amazing! Lunch was included and they brought us to one of the best buffet with a view in Bali! Definitely recommend it!

1 Day Exploring Bali's Best Sights

The tour with Micheal (Andres’ son) was nothing short of magnificent. We saw all the brilliant sites of Bali and enjoyed a scenic and delicious lunch overlooking the volcano and lake. Micheal was extremely knowledable and kind. Do expect to drive for awhile between destinations and I would advise packing water/snacks as it is a long time in the car. We lucked out as we didn’t run into any traffic until the very end. Do note though that Bali traffic can be horrible!! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling in Bali. Just fantastic!
