Oh, Bali. Despite its pristine beaches, endless rice fields, and progressive tourism, there are amazing Bali experiences of a cultural nature, like this one. We spent a month living in Bali, and one day we got the opportunity to travel around with our friend Helen Suk, photographer/blogger. She hired a local Balinese photographer/ guide to take us around the island for the day to capture some of its incredible culture and scenery in film and video. One thing we couldn’t miss was the Full Moon ceremony at the Bali Water temple.
We spent a month living in Bali searching for local activities like fishing with a local man for the day or witnessing cultural events.
Our first stop this day was the Tirta Empul temple, located 20km outside of Ubud.
Tirta Empul, meaning “Holy Spring” in Indonesian, is one of the most important Hindu temples on the island.
Fortunately, we were there on the day of the full moon, a very special day for ceremonies and festivities.
