As one of the 17,000 islands here in Indonesia, Bali is smothered in rolling, emerald green rice fields and palm trees. A tropical island whose massive cliffs are endlessly pounded by loud and powerful waves. A little nook on the globe that oozes with natural beauty. But, above all, Bali is a place overflowing with culture, ritual and tradition.
