    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.

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.
