Bali - Seminyak & Ubud

Our annual pilgrimmage to Bali to escape Melbourne cold winter


You may think Bali is a remote island paradise - yet in recent years - the area of Seminyak has grown into a cool inner urbane style precinct- happened to be located near the coast...

The streets are dotted by chic Boutiques and cool restaurants - the eat street Laksmana Rd has few places to dine

Luxury villas sprung up everywhere - as mode of accommodations and some finest restaurants dotted along the beach


This time we brought our friends with us and travelled to lush hillside village of Ubud ....



Our Abode - Sesari Villa













Shopping & dining are our favourite things to do whilst in Bali

























Kudeta Bar -THE place to chill, dine and relax - and watch the magnificent sunset


The next party in July will have Australian Delta Goodrem to perform

http://www.kudeta.net

















Bali's famous Sunset






















Jimbaran Bay












Beautiful & Lush Ubud Village

































Ubud streetscape



Preparation for Ubud King cremation
















The Village Temple - used for dancing practice

















Monkey busines in Ubud











he did open a bottle!


a very lush Monkey forest

Hotels and gardens look beautiful but don't you have any pictures of local people and their cities and villages? I'd like to see how typical bali-peoples live.

my bad.... the street scenes are pretty hectic and the local homes are varied

you may find them in the UBUD streetscene below - that is the Ubud town center

for the local - this is our Balinese friend (pity he's straight!)




these are taken in Traditional Ubud market - pretty unchanged since the last 30 yrs ago or so...
We went there in 1992 and still look the same






some of the things we bought from Bali (some of them are from the market except some nice stuff and paintings are from proper Gallery)







Yes Gapster - we declared them in Customs! we need to have a chat about a very very very very very very very very very POOOOR service of Aus Custom in the Airport... just bring your ear plugs next time i see you!
