As we know, the Bali we see today has lost many of its roots. Instead of Baris and Legong dances, we have twerking on Jalan Legian. Instead of a cocktails of traditional Jamu, we have Jungle Juice. Instead of padi fields we have rows of hotels and restaurants. Of course it's a sad truth, but it's a change that cannot be undone.
What can we do now? Look back and remember how it once was. How man, nature and God lived in harmony, unadulterated by modern 'conveniences' and the pressures of tourism. These videos below each show the original charm of the Island of the Gods, reminding us why this paradise destination became so popular to begin with.
