Yuni’s Fun Fact about Bali:
The Balinese, through the execution of various forms of upacara (ceremonies), do so by active voluntarism, participating and contributing – a common Balinese term known as “Ngayah”. Balinese community had to rely on one another to hold events and ceremonies, and to simply get through life. Ngayah, is a social responsibility for the Balinese, towards God and kin. That’s the reason why during every big ceremony, droves of people flood and work together on preparations. It’s a timeless tradition, one that gives the Balinese their uniqueness. Also, through ngayah, it becomes easier to keep people connected and society together.
Bali has something for everyone, from adventure activities to spiritual retreats to cultural experiences. The island’s natural beauty, rich culture, and warm hospitality make it a must-visit destination for travelers from all around the world.
