Bali: Where Art and Business Promotion Impressive.

A couple weeks ago I was reading God Bless Indonesia. Then I remembered about the island of Bali.

Who does not know Bali? I think, almost all people in the world knew it. Even those more familiar with the name of Bali than Indonesia. Once, when I studied abroad, I was often asked, where did I come When I answered that I come from Indonesia, they looked confused. Then they asked me in return: “ Indonesia? Where is Indonesia ?”. Immediately I understood their reluctance, and said : “Do you know Bali?” They answered : “Yes, we know Bali, that Island of Paradise !”. I replied that I come from that island. Then I explained that Bali is one of 17,000 islands owned by the State of Indonesia. They nodded, knowingly.

Bali Island is really one of the famous tourist destinations in the world. The natural beautiful landscape combined with a strong traditional culture including magical ritual ceremony is the part of fascination for this Island of Paradise. Many artists, such as painters from foreign countries come here to seeking inspiration. Some of them even ended up living in Bali.

Nowadays many Hollywood movie Celebrities also come for holiday and vacation in Bali. Several years ago Mick Jagger, a rock star from the Rolling Stones, had come also here. It seems that those movie stars realized that the island of Bali is one of the best promotions and impressive places on the world.. Of course they were not throwing off this good opportunity. . So they flocked to the island of Bali to make films with local unique cultural background..

Welcome to Bali! .
