Flying Kites used to be an agrarian festival to thank the gods for abundant crops. The kites have become bigger and bigger, designed in many different forms and structures. Local youth groups in Banjars construct these colorful 'beasts' and compete on a local level. Many international competitors now also come to Bali to compare their strengths and flying power.

Bali temple procession for Galungan Kuningan

October 31- November 11, 2017
Galungan and Kuningan

Rows and rows of intricately crafted Penjor or bamboo poles decorated with young coconut leaves line the streets. They reach high up into the sky yet humbly lower their head down to earth. It is a celebration of Dharma over Adharma or triumph of good over evil.

There are special temple ceremonies and this is the time to see the long processions of beautifully dressed women carrying tall food offerings on their heads to the temple. I took this picture many years ago; shoot your own and show us what has changed. Upload your comments and picture here

When Did Bali Hotel Quack Start?

The first time I stepped on Bali was more than 30 years ago. I was working in the tourism industry and was posted to Bali for one year. I immediately fell in love with this beautiful, friendly, and yet strikingly different island of the gods. I could never forget it!

Before you even step onto this stunning and lush tropical island you can smell its perfume. A sweet fragrance of assorted tropical spices mixed with offerings, flowers and Kretek the Indonesian clove cigarette. It is a whiff of mysticism and each time I arrive in Bali I close my eyes and I smile, it is still there the unmistaken perfume of paradise on earth.

Way back then we professionals discussed the fate of Bali many times and at length. Alin a Frenchman and friend said: “We need to protect the Balinese from the tourists so that their culture will not be destroyed!” After 30 years I am very happy to report that the Balinese religion and culture is alive, thriving and maybe stronger than ever. Tourism has even helped improve or enhance certain aspects by providing jobs and income so that locals can keep their traditions alive.I hope that you enjoy our Bali hotel quack site.

Why use Ducks Together with Bali Hotel?

Ducks have always played an important role in a Balinese farmer’s life. In the olden days driving back to the South from a day excursion in the mountains we would encounter huge flocks of them. Farmers holding long bamboo poles with a white flag on the top were followed by waddling and quacking ducks.

They too were heading home from a day excursion feeding on scrumptious insects in rice fields. Nowadays you can’t see them much along the streets anymore; they are still a favorite souvenir item though, carved from wood and painted in a mixture of colors. They also feature prominently on many restaurant menus.
