Bali monkeys, Where to see them


I can’t finish this travel series without dedicating one post to animals and Bali monkeys. All of you probably know stories about the Monkey Forest or the Uluwatu Temple complex where Bali monkeys often take sunglasses and cameras from tourists.

Bali rice fields, What to see


The island is special in a lot of ways and here is what to expect when it comes to Bali rice fields and food. I don’t usually write about food when traveling, but the Balinese colorful markets, such variety of fruit and spices, along with a few unusual meals I had on the island, came […]

Things to buy in Bali


The time has come for the things to buy in Bali. We covered the most popular landmarks of Bali so far, famous temples being among the first. And I did mention a few things I bought in Bali, but I feel I should dedicate the whole post to souvenirs and things to bring from the […]
