Turtle Island at Bali

Very close to the shore, south of Sanur and close to the mouth of Benoa Harbour, is Pulau Serangan (Turtle Island). At low tide you can actually walk across to the island. Here turtles are captured and fattened in pens before being sold for village feasts. Turtles are now being protected on the west coast of Bali due to dwindling numbers and tourists are advised to refrain from eating any turtle meat or buying products made from turtles.

Ogoh Ogoh monsters are colourful monster sculptures, which are made from bamboo frames and paper mache. They are made in the form of creatures of the underworld known in Balinese as buta-kala. The creatures are based on characters taken from traditional myths and legends, symbolize the evil spirits that one can encounter in life, however in modern times many also take the form of modern characters, including even people in the media or in the government.

Before the Hindu new year, Nyepi, is celebrated in the spring by a day of silence (usually in March) – you can find Ogoh Ogoh *everywhere* in BaliThey are mainly built by the youngsters of the villages and kampungs in the weeks and months before Melasti and Nyepi.

Many people, and specially the youth of Bali, find great fun in creating the Ogoh Ogoh, and the carnival is enjoyed by all.
Parading Ogoh Ogoh on the streets
On the preceding day, all traffic is blocked and the Ogoh-Ogoh monsters are paraded around near the main intersections like village and cities. Finally burned in the evening to drive away evil spirits.
It’s almost like carnival processions in other countries. The kids can stay up long and carry ‘their’ Ogoh Ogoh around. It’s like a beauty competition on who created the most colourful, funny or scary monster. Of course everyone is proud of their creation and the whole proceedings are very noisy and with plenty of drum sound and screaming and laughing. 
Let's go to Bali and participate this event! wink wink;)

With its blue skies as the backdrop, Bali is a marvellous place to stage the world Kite Festival! Held in Padang, Sanur in July each year, it is attended by international kite fliers, tourists and locals alike.The Bali Kite Festival is a colourful (and free to watch) spectacle of amazing kites. The kites are launched in nearby paddy fields and because of their huge proportions, usually shaped as birds or fish, spectators are guaranteed terrific views. As most things in Bali have a purpose, the festival enables the Balinese to communicate with the Gods, asking for them to ensure good crops for the year.

Let's Go to Bali  wink wink..;)
