In the north you still find the traditional Bali. The rice terraces, buffalos pulling the plows, the friendly local population in their traditional Balinese clothes. It’s a paradise for tourists. Enjoy and indulge in the smells of frangipani, the incense used in the daily offerings, and the smell of local spices used in Balinese cooking. Look at the beautiful flowers and plants, wonder about the many traditions and be enchanted by the serene rest and piece that you find here.
