Bali - Badung

Badung Traditional Market is located in the heart of Denpasar and one of the largest Markets of the market area in which all of the markets are located around Jalan Sulewesi. Badung market is used by many of the local people who live all around the island in the south west and east for buying all of the food types, ceremony goods, clothes and other items. Badung Traditional Market is open in the evening and the day and is positively seeming with life of Balinese market culture and the merriment of the social interactions of bartering and taking your time to make your purchases and have a chat at the same time. Markets are the very heart of Indonesian culture and are really incredible places that are largely unchanged through time and located in the centre of Denpasar which is ideal for anyone staying in any of the southern areas of Bali.The general feel as you enter s unforgettable, like something out of a James Bond film with an Aladin style ethnic beauty, you can almost picture a big chase of people knocking over large woven bamboo baskets of vegetables, fruits and spices flying past you. The smells and sights change as you move through the large area which now has a modern three story complex as well that is only open in the daylight hours. There have been attempts and plans to close down the market or move it as its traditional location in the centre of Denpasar along with its size makes it difficult for the City to develop in the modern day. This has not been allowed to happen as the market is not just important to the locals as a place to buy goods required for daily life and business but is also a social arena that the entire population of the south of Bali enjoys to visit regularly. This is one of the main reasons why the one way system can be difficult to negotiate and around the markets which means it and be worth using transport of some kind to seek out the markets.When reaching the markets there may but not always be a few hawkers around offering to be a guide and help you find what you are looking for and show you around. If you wish to employ one agree a price first to avoid any disagreement later although usually theywill except a small amount of money for this. However it is not necessary and there are many English speaking locals who will point you in the right direct for what you are looking for and usually a guide will be bias in which stall he takes you to. Some of the most popular purchases from a tourist point of view are the astonishingly cheap gold and silver jewelry that can be found in the day market. The other markets around are focused things such as unusual Balinese items and ceremonial items, food and other items.
Sangeh is a village located on the western part of Denpasar, around an hour drive from Kuta and other tourist resort on south Bali. It is renown as one of the tourist object. Sangeh Monkey Forest covers an area of six hectare of tropical rain forest and is connected by well developed road to Denpasar. Other interesting place around this area is Pelaga Village featuring breathtaking green hill views with hectares of rice paddies on the foot of the hill.There is an old temple in Sangeh Monkey Forest and was built during the seventeenth century. Thousand of sacred nutmeg trees covers the whole area and are the home for the monkeys and bats. This is a small forest measuring 12,00ha where you can find hundreds of monkey in their natural habitat. In Hindu religion monkeys have a special status that is the main reason monkeys live freely and peaceful in Sangeh. Humabeing and monkeys live harmoniously without disturbing each other.

To get there, you can ride Bemo the local public transportation, from Ubung and Wangaya bus terminal in central of Denpasar.

Taman Ayun Temple is nestled in Mengwi 18 kilometers northwest of Denpasar, Bali. It was probably built in 1634, according to local history this temple was built by I Gusti Agung, the king of Mengwi. Mengwi is derived from the word Arya Menguri, who was the founder of the former capital of Mengwi. Taman Ayun means a beautiful garden in the word, which is suitable for everybody who so desire. It gives comfort and a happy life to all creatures especially to human beings. Taman means pool or flower garden and Ayun means suitable for everybody.The character of this temple is genealogic, the temple of origin. Some decades later Taman Ayun was enlarged with three bigger courts and was provided with more shrines and pagoda. This enlargement engulfed the old temple, which is now inside the first court of the new one, the people of Mengwi to worship God and his manifestations, their divine ancestor, and the deities of mountains. The old temple is still used by descendents of the royal family of Mengwi for the sanctuary worshipping their royal ancestor.Seen from the temple location which is surrounded by water, the Taman Ayun Temple might be connected with the legend of Rebut Amerta or Mandana Giri, the story of the Gods and Asuras (demon Gods) ocean of milk. Amerta is an eternal life. Another proof of what is the relief of Garuda having a cup of ambrosia while his back is being it by a demon. This relief is sculpture on the back wall of the throne like shrine in the middle of the inner court.Between so many shrines and buildings is paibon, a building made of bricks, which has archeological value. The Paibon is used for the sanctuary of worshipping the divine ancestors of the people. The front face of this building is carved in relief among which is the split head of Kalahahu, the demon who helps the gods in their efforts to search for ambrosia.Ride a taxi is an option to visit this temple and can be arranged from any hotels on the southern part of Bali. But taxi service will cost a lot. Join a local tour to Taman Ayu could be cheaper but need to share the bus with other rravelers.
