    Hectic, Burgeoning and Sprawling – the capital of Bali, has been the nerve center of the island’s wealth and growth in the last half a century. For some, it may look like an appalling or a disorganized place but if you spend a little time on its boulevards in the comparatively affluent government and business district of Renon, you’ll discover a rather more ostentatious side of the city.

    Denpasar is definitely not a tropical utopia but is as much a part of the real Bali as the cliff top temples and the rice paddies. It is the hub of the island for over 800,000 locals and here one can easily access the shopping hubs and parks. More appealing here is the myriad of authentic and palatable restaurants and cafes that lure the flourishing middle class. You may also wish to venture into the markets of Denpasar, pivotal museums of the city and indulge in the modern Balinese vibe. Usually, visitors stay in the hotels, resorts and stay houses in the tourist towns of the South and visit Denpasar on a round trip during the day time. In case traffic is lean you can reach here in half an hour from Seminyak and 15 minutes from Sanur.

    The second largest city in Bali, the place consists of a population of over 120,000 people. This destination is covered with greenery that lines the very streets of the place and surviving Dutch colonial buildings that make up for a very charming scenario. The waterfront area that is located in the north of Jl Erlangga is worth exploring too. People spend hours by this charmingly sleepy waterfront as it emits a soothing experience.

    Another chief attraction of Singaraja is Lovina – which is not exactly located within the city but merely a few miles away from it.

    Singaraja held great importance during the time of Dutch rule as the city helped the latter to remain in administrative dominance in the whole of Bali. In fact, Singaraja now remains to be among those few places that consists of minutely visible traces of the Dutch, Chinese and the Islamic influence. After years of revolving and re-emerging, Singaraja is today recognized as one of the most important centres for education and culture.

    There are only two airports in the whole of Bali. The other one is being debated to be built in the Kubutambahan region of Bali which lies east of Singaraja – making it extremely convenient for travellers to visit this place.

Here, you can find speed boats zipping the visitors directly from Bali and new and happening hotels coming up just about every month.

You’ll never find dogs or motorcycles here. Development here has been more charming than just ferocious or greedy. You can also find some concrete eyesores.  

    Every island of this archipelago has a distinct character. Most cosmopolitan of the islands here is the Trawangan that is popular for its party and bar scene, vibrant culture, plush accommodations, stays and resorts and restaurants that lie in proximity to the definitive tropical chic. The local character of the Gili Island is the strongest and is a true melange of languor and buzz. Ideally, Gili Island is the best desert island getaway.
