Tradition and Culture
Bali offers far too many exceptional attractions for only one visit. To help our guests experience the best of this island’s diverse cultural and natural attractions, the Chedi Sakala team compiled a thoughtful list of our own Bali favourites. While not exhaustive, these do offer a comprehensive initiation to Bali, whether this is your first visit or fiftieth.
