Tem­ple Time

LUXE City Guides - Bali - - Activities -

The Ba­li­nese are ex­tremely tol­er­ant and hos­pitable; their cul­ture is rich, com­plex and in­tact, and while you’ll be most wel­come to visit tem­ples or cer­e­monies, imag­ine how you’d feel with hun­dreds of rank, short­wear­ing, sweaty, badly-coiffed vis­i­tors stand­ing out­side your place of wor­ship, pick­ing their pants out of their cracks, cam­eras in hand... If you sim­ply can’t live an­other day with­out vis­it­ing a tem­ple, read up on eti­quette to avoid of­fence, wear a sarong and sash, and avoid Be­sakih and Tanah Lot, which are ab­so­lutely over­run. In east Bali, try the lesser vis­ited but lovely Pura Lem­puyung or Pura Pasar Agung (375 steps up with rav­ish­ing views at sun­rise). In west Bali, visit Pura Luhur Batukau.
