Due to her strategic position, the North Bali has had contacts with the outside world much earlier than South Bali which in turn has made North Bali to be leader in art and fashion, such as the use of lacey kebaya for Balinese women, Gong Kebyar new kind of music and the Baroque North Balinese style decorations on temples. The colonial legacy is more visible in North Bali as the Dutch conquered this region 60 years prior to South Bali.
Gitgit, located in the midst of the dense jungle, one of the magic waterfalls with crystal clear water where we can refresh our body, is our first stop. Afterwards we continue our trip to Singaraja, the old capital of Bali during Dutch and Japanese colonial time (1849-1945) and during the first years of independence (1945-1953). We stop at the Buleleng old harbor to see the old buildings from the Dutch time. Continuing the tour, we take you to Sangsit to visit the Beji temple which is dedicated to the Dewi Sri, the Goddess of the rice that assures the good harvest. The temple is decorated with Baroque North Balinese temple style in which every available space is decorated with lovely carvings. Lunch will be served in a restaurant facing Lovina black sandy beach of volcanic origin. Afterwards we continue our tour to Banjar to visit the Buddhist Brahma Arama Vihara monastery from where we appreciate the commanding view to the north coast. Then we proceed to the Banjar Hot Spring whose water has sulfuric content which is very good for our skin, and here we can stretch our muscles in her hot water. Then we take you again to your hotel in South Bali.
