Guided Art Tours Around Bali

Even though Bali is celebrated tourist destination known for its luscious tropical landscapes and warm hospitality, Balinese culture and art are unique gems that deserve the traveler’s undivided attention. Despite the continuing influx of westernization, Bali’s traditional way of life persists and is deeply interwoven with art, through dance, painting, musical performance and the architecture of the island’s many temples and traditional houses.

On this island art is a sacred form of worship; the artist performs a sort of meditation or trance while engaging in art, connecting the unseen world of the gods with the everyday world of humans during the process. Children start to learn about arts at a very early stage and remain keen to continue living their unique traditions.
