Its Good Friday, and we have the weekend off! Yay! The Balinese, being Hindu, do not celebrate Easter, however, as Bali is part of Indonesia, where five religions are followed, this is one of our many holidays. So what is there to do?
With children: Potato Head and Ku De Ta both put on a wonderful day of activities for the children, on Sunday, including egg painting, Easter egg hunts and many more. These two venues are beach side, with a wonderful breeze coming off the ocean. Parents can kick back and enjoy the view, while the children are entertained. Live music, good food and drinks make for the perfect day.
Adults: There are many choices depending on what you like. For yoga lovers, the Bali Spirit Festival is in full swing right now. This is a 5 day event, full of yoga, dance and music. for more information about this annual event, take a look at my Bali Spirit post. For those that like a stylish setting to sit back, relax and enjoy a few chocolate mojitos, the W hotel is the place to go. Or for party lovers, The Rock bar has great Dj’s to rock your world.
As Bali is a tourist island, it has everything you could wish for, there are even bakeries offering hot cross buns and Easter eggs. Or you can choose to get away from all that hedonism, and immerse yourself in the Balinese lifestyle in more remote areas, maybe climb a mountain, or take a walk in the rice fields.
Personally, I will be spending today with my daughter as she takes her Grade 4 ballet Exam, and then off to enjoy the cooler climes in Bedugul for some tree climbing…watch this space for more news on that.
