A fork in the road

hellobali Guide to Bali - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

For years Bali bear a close as­so­ci­a­tion with art, a con­nec­tion whole­heart­edly em­braced by vis­i­tors and Ba­li­nese peo­ple alike. With so much art around to­day, in street and swanky gal­leries, it’s im­por­tant to know how to spot the trea­sures buried within.

OF­TEN IN­CLUDED as part of the en­ter­tain­ment at par­ties, fes­ti­vals and cer­e­monies, the of­fers mem­bers of the au­di­ence the chance to strut their stuff with pro­fes­sional dancers; hip sway­ing, eye lash flut­ter­ing young women, who choose their part­ners with the aid of a scarf they drape around the necks of likely look­ing men. Some try to match the dancer’s el­e­gance. Oth­ers are con­tent to act the buf­foon.
