About the island of Boracay, the Philippines, as a competitor of the island of Bali, Indonesia

About the island of Boracay, the Philippines, as a competitor of the island of Bali, Indonesia
For those who do not know the island of Boracay, Boracay is an island in the Philippines. The island is located 315 km from Manila, the Philippine capital, on the southern island of Luzon, and is part of the province of Aklan. To go to Boracay, the path must be long enough. From Manila, using a small plane, to the town of Kalibo, on Panay Island, for 45 minutes. From there continue by bus for 2 hours to the port of Caticlan. On arrival at the port of Caticlan, then crossed to the island of Boracay, for 20 minutes. In 1990, Boracay was chosen as one of the best beaches in the world, by the BMW Tropical Beach Handbook. The island is also selected by TV Quick, as the best tropical beaches in the world, in 1996.

The island of Boracay in the Philippines is a haven for the heat of the sun and the beach worshipers around the world. The beach has a friendly wave, and a paradise for lovers of marine life. This island including the famous tourist destination, as it has a beach with white sand and clean. Boracay has two main beaches, is Bulabog Beach and White Beach. If in Boracay has Bulabog Beach and White Beach, Bali also has a beach of Kuta, Sanur beach, Padang-padang beach, Seminyak beach, and many beautiful beaches in Bali which will not be less interesting to those in Boracay. Maybe that makes the beaches in Bali less interesting to the beach in Boracay is that the beach in Bali is very dense with tourists. So crowded. That's because the beaches in Bali are very attractive to tourists, and certainly no less interesting to the beach in Boracay.

Also what makes this island so attractive is that tourists will not only get a classy hotel, but also cheap lodging. However, in Bali there are many cheap hotels and classy. In fact not only hotel, villa in Bali can also be obtained. Boracay is located right in the middle of the Philippine archipelago, making this beach is choppy. But when compared with in Bali, which has many types of beaches, beaches with huge waves, waves to the beach with a very calm, certainly no less varied with beaches located in Boracay. However, in certain seasons, the winds that blow to the beach in Boracay is very suitable as a location for windsurfing or kiteboarding. Boracay as a museum for all the beauty of Philippine marine life that was already famous in the world. Paradise for lovers of snorkeling, diving (scuba or cliff), etc.. This place is also a perfect escape for tourists who just want to enjoy the peace of the beach breeze. Perhaps for that reason, the island of Boracay is the best choice as the best island, Bali island which beat two ranked. But it must be known, in Bali there is also a very beautiful island, Nusa Lembongan, which has the beauty of marine life and coral reef biodiversity, which would not be less interesting to Boracay.

Tourists from the narrative of Bulabog Beach, the beach is likely to slow. Very few tourists are sunbathing or activities at sea, only a few local children are busy playing and a few young men who love to swim. That atmosphere is obtained when the tourists are in Bulabog Beach. Quiet and peaceful, with Bulabog Beach sand is white and smooth, calm sea water, and there is also drifting seaweed water, may be very pleasant for tourists. If likened to Bali, it's the same situation with Seminyak beach.

The second beach in Boracay is White Beach. This beach is crowded center on the island of Boracay. On this beach there are plenty of dining and lodging, ranging from simple, to the exclusive. There is also a post office, tourist information centers, nightclubs, and also a gift shop. Here the atmosphere is clearly different from the Bulabog Beach. If likened to Bali, then the White beaches, together with the Kuta beach in Bali. White Beach is divided into three areas as Station 1, 2 and 3. Station 1 contained more prestigious hotels such as Mandarin Hotel. Meanwhile, Station 2 is the heart of the island where there are many night spots. Meanwhile, Station 3 has a lot of the cheaper accommodation backpacker style.

Just north of the island there is a Puka Beach. It's a name for Puka shells, which can be found on the beach. Puka beach sand is very coarse in comparison with the existing sand on other beaches. Puka shells due to debris that are in there. Puka is the second longest beach in Boracay, and is still relatively empty, without resort by the beach and several restaurants. Boracay's main road ends at Puka Beach. To get there, take about 10 or 15 minutes, from the White Beach.

Boracay is perhaps the tourist zone of pimped-out, but there is every reason to remain as the top ranking among the many trips. Because the beauty of this island, may be the cause of the defeat of the island of Bali, the island's best tourist destination, the version of Travel + Leisure magazine, which conducted a survey of their readers. Boracay was ranked fourth in a similar nomination last year. Now he gained 93.10 points and the successful shift of Bali, the second rank. Sequentially, the position of the most beautiful island in the world is: Boracay, Philippines (93.10); Bali, Indonesia (90.41), Galapagos, Ecuador (89.55), Maui, Hawaii (89.53); Great Barrier Reef Islands , Australia (89.28), Santorini, Greece (89.20), Kauai, Hawaii (89.09), Big Island, Hawaii (87.95); Sicily, Italy (87.87), and Vancouver Island, British Columbia (87.48).

Award conferred on July 19, which will be chaired by the vice president of Travel + Leisure magazine, Jean-Paul Kyrillos in Conrad, New York.

Bali island has the toughest competition as the best island, the island of Boracay in the Philippines, as the best island in 2012

Bali island has the toughest competition as the best island, the island of Boracay in the Philippines, as the best island in 2012
Bali island has been known the world as a beautiful island destinations. Bali island has a myriad of arts and culture, which is very unique, and can not be obtained in any country in the world. But this year the island of Bali is located on the second rank, of the ten best tourist destination island, the version of the magazine Travel + Leisure. There are several categories that are used in these assessments. Category is the best hotel, best city, best cruise, best tour operators, best airline, best spa destinations, and others, which are used in the assessment of the best island in the world. And with the island of Boracay as the best island in the world, and ranked number two is the island of Bali.

Assessment conducted by a poll conducted by the magazine. The poll began in December 2011 ago, and ended in March 2012. Obtained the best Boracay Island is not the first. Previously, Boracay has also been awarded as the best beach in Asia, in 1990. In 1996, also earned the title as the best tropical beaches.

From the appraiser's best island, the scores obtained Boracay island, not much different from the scores obtained by the island of Bali, just a little different. Score for the island of Boracay is 93.10, while the score for the island of Bali is 90.41.

The ten best islands in the world are:
1. Boracay, Philippines
2. Bali, Indonesia
3. Galapagos, Ecuador
4. Maui, Hawaii
5. Great Barrier Reef, Australia
6. Santorini, Greece
7. Kauai, Hawaii
8. Big Island, Hawaii
9. Sicilia, Italy
10. Vancouver Island, British Columbia


It must be admitted, Bali is not the best tourist destination in the world. Some time ago, the Times magazine, preaching, Bali is a tourist destination of hell. It can not be denied, because a lot of bad things, related to the tourism industry in Bali. Such as congestion, flooding, crime, crime, and so on, which makes the image of Bali tourism worse off. Not to mention the problem of terrorism, which often occur in Indonesia. That some time ago, Bali terror attacks received, with the explosion of bombs in Kuta. The killing of foreign tourists. It definitely makes a deep trauma for tourists.

For a world-class surfer's paradise, with many surf spots in Bali, make Bali a surfing destination. However, due to uncontrolled logging and hygiene problems in the river that are not resolved properly, often the condition of the beach to be dirty, especially during the rainy season. Frequent river floods, and empties into the sea, and the majority of the river swept away the dirt, washed up on shore, so it is not convenient to look at. Thus lead to disappointment by the surfers who come to Bali.

Hopefully the bad things that had happened in Bali can be resolved, and resolved by the government. With good enforcement, and awareness of all parties to maintain the beauty of Bali, so that Bali remains the island's best tourist destination in the world.


Indonesia, the rich countries, poor people, also in Bali

Indonesia is an agrarian country, the country's largest producer of natural resources in the world. Whatever there is in Indonesia, petroleum, gold, coal, copper, wood, food, water is abundant, all in Indonesia. But all that can not be enjoyed by our own country. Largely enjoyed by other countries. Indirectly, another country invaded the country of Indonesia. Indonesia so that the population remains poor. And Bali is part of the premises, which is a province of the dozens of provinces in Indonesia. The Balinese are very sense of injustice that occurred in this country.

Global climate change requires us to be more observant, more concerned with various issues related to food. Iklam changes greatly affect people's lives, especially in Bali. Bali as a tourist area, the majority of Balinese people work as farmers, are very concerned about climate change is happening now. Crop failure, loss, and damage to rice farmers are not free from the influence of climate change is happening now. Whether it will continue to happen?

God has provided fertile soil Bali. Broad waters. Indonesia has the highest rainfall in the world. However, the natural wealth premises are meaningless if people are not able to manage it properly. In fact, today, rice paddies and farm fields in Bali increasingly reduced, a result of land-uses, a hotel and shops, a large begagian owned by foreigners. Not greatly affect control it.

Today, after almost 67 years of Indonesia's independence, we import salt. Anchovies are also imported. Even now in the import of dried fish. Because the world soybean prices continue to rise, for the next few days, the people of Bali are not able to eat tofu and tempeh. Know the tempeh is a typical food premises. Currently, only 34 trillion, or 3% of the Indonesian state budget, allocated for the agricultural sector. 18 trillion is used for fertilizer subsidies, 16 billion for the regular budget of the Ministry of Agriculture.

For comparison, budget travel in 2012 state budget was 24 trillion rupiah. While the people starve, some of the apparatus of government, chose to walk out of the country using public money. Does not care what happens to the people of Indonesia. In Bali, including one of the largest foreign exchange contributor to Indonesia, there are still many poor people. Even in some areas in Bali, its people suffer from malnutrition. Very ironic.

Erratic weather in Bali, at Bali this week's rain
Weather in Bali, today's rain, the heat yesterday, tomorrow may be overcast. This weather is complained of by the Balinese. Especially by farmers. Weather in Bali is very uncertain. Sometimes rain, sometimes hot, not in season. Seasons have been uncertain. Things like this are very disturbing activities of the Balinese. Farmers confused what to do.

Also for fans of surfing, cycling, diving, and more. They must be very disturbed by this situation. What can make, we can not forecast the weather.

Bali weather conditions in these uncertain, occur when the issue of global warming. Can be attributed to global warming. Usually the summer rainy season and come on a regular basis in a given month. However, the current becomes erratic. Maybe this world is affected by global climate. Such as global warming. Changes in wind direction and air temperature changes, resulting in changes in the weather. This effect is very influential with the weather in Bali.

Unrest is also strongly felt by farmers, due to the weather in Bali is erratic, confused them what to do. They sometimes confuse what should be planted in his field. Because the types of crops planted in fields, is determined by weather conditions in Bali. If you plant rice, fear the rain come and soak their rice.

Temperatures throughout the year is getting hot in Bali

Temperatures in Bali today, very different from the temperature of yore. I very clearly felt air temperature change in Bali. As I child, I felt the air temperature is as hot right now. Once the air is so fresh and warm, but now the air is very hot. This change not only my own taste. But also all my friends. They also complained overheated when outside the home. Meanwhile, when they were little, the air is not so hot.

Changes in air temperature at this time, perhaps influenced by the effects of global warming, which is becoming a trend in world issues. Global warming can not be avoided, along with growth in population. Global warming can be avoided, even reversed, if all people want to not use vehicles, which use fossil fuels, do not cut trees, do not use equipment that can damage Earth's ozone quality.

The temperature is getting warmer in Bali, Balinese influence people's behavior. Currently Balinese increasingly harsh and angry, if it is associated with warmer air, probably due to the amount of energy wasted in the human body. Body of work requires energy, at the same time, the body also secretes fluid terntentu to keep the temperature balanced. In this condition, if a person's lack of energy, to be able to think long, then that person is easily angered. If someone is thinking short, then the person's emotions can be overwhelming, causing the person to be angry.
That is why the Balinese now become irritable.

These impacts affect the tranquility of society. Many clashes took place in Bali today. I think this clash occurs is related to the air in Bali is getting warmer. Maybe a bit strange if the air temperature was associated with frequent clashes. For example, why in the Arab and African countries is often a conflict? Maybe it's due to the extremely hot temperatures. Anyone who was there, they become emotionally unstable. Thus be a trigger of conflict, which will not expire.

Tanah Lot is a place very famous beach resort, located in Tabanan regency, Bali, Indonesia. Tanah Lot is located in the Beraban village, distric of Kediri, Tabanan regency, about 13 km to the west of Tabanan. To more clearly the location of Pura Tanah Lot, just look at a Google Earth. See a map of Bali, Tanah Lot addressed in our search. Here there are two temples are situated on a large rock. One temple is situated on a huge boulder, and the other located on a cliff that protrudes into the sea, similar to Pura Uluwatu. Is the temple Pura Tanah Lot sea temple guardian deity of the sea.

To achieve the Pura Tanah Lot, from the city of Denpasar, get through two pathways, via Denpasar-Gilimanuk highway, and through a small street in the south Babung. If at the beginning of Kuta, preferably via a small road south Badung. would be better if you do not to Tanah Lot in the afternoon, as you will be stuck in traffic, in any path you went through, and you would be disappointed. Come to the Tanah Lot on the day, and wait for the sunset in the evening.


When I come there during the afternoon, I went down to the beach area. When it's low tide, I walked him down the cliff at the beach area temples. Take a walk on the reef overgrown with moss. There's a fisherman, he gets a lot of fish. Although only a small fish. Time there were very many tourists.

After being a walk on the beach, I bought a drink in the east. There was a small shop that offers a wide range of drinks and seafood. The price is also less expensive to taste the typical cuisine of the sea. Restaurant in Tanah Lot, is very diverse. Most of the restaurants serving seafood Tanah Lot.

While waiting for the sunset, I took a stroll down the entire area of ​​Tanah Lot, from the west end to east end. It's fun, meet new people there. I'm with my partner approached by a local photographer, who offers a quick photo. I tried it, at least I assist in the photographer's effort to make money. Me and my partner was photographed, and I received the results can be directly on the spot. The result is good.

It would be wonderful if you see the sunset from the east side of the temple, as you will see the sunset as if hidden in the temple of Tanah Lot.

On this bridge you can see the sun set over the slit aperture of the cliff. Sunset like a sleepy eye. This scene can be witnessed only in certain months, as the sun sank inclined to the north, in June, July and August.

I know the story of looking for Tanah Lot temple. I got it from various sources. This story is related to pretend in Bali which is also located on the beach. Like the Uluwatu temple.

Said Land Lot consists of two words "Tanah" is defined as a rock, "Lot" or "Lod" means the sea. So the meaning of Tanah Lot is a land that is in the middle of the ocean. Pura Tanah Lot was founded in the 15th century, by a Hindu priest, named Bawu Rawuh or Danghyang Nirartha, which comes from the kingdom of Majapahit. Danhyang Niratha on his way to spread the Hindu religion of Java in the 16th century. Before giving the instructions to set up a temple in this place, he felt the vibrations of purity and perfection of spiritual gain.

According to legend, Danghyang Nirartha embracing Hinduism, managed to strengthen confidence in the local community about the Hindu religion. A leader in the holy place, whose name Bendesa Beraban, was unrivaled as many of his followers became followers Danghyang Nirarta. Bendesa then sent him away from Tanah Lot. He could, but before leaving Tanah Lot, with all his strength he had to move boulders into the sea and build a temple on top. She also changed her shawl into a snake temple guards. This snake is still there today, and these snakes include species of sea snakes that have characteristic flat tail like a fish, striped black and yellow color. Bendesa Beraban was amazed and later became a follower Danghyang Nirartha.

As a tourist attraction, Tanah Lot has been managed professionally equipped with parking facilities, toilets, art shop, restaurant, hotel, open stage, tourist information center, and facility security and safety. By paying the entrance fee so all visitors have been covered by accident insurance. Similarly, the parking service, every vehicle that enters the ground area parking lot to pay the levy directly is protected by insurance. When you arrive in the area of ​​Tanah Lot, from the parking lot to the temple, on the way there are many art shops offering local crafts products, many beverage and food stalls, there are also toilet facilities, which the rent is very cheap.

It's fun to come to Bali Pura Tanah Lot. Also very unpleasant to go home after a happy visit to Tanah Lot. Because, I'm stuck in traffic somewhere along the return run, the same as when I go to Tanah Lot. So, if you come to Tanah Lot, the patience to prepare a very high road.

Decrease of Hindus in Bali

Decrease of Hindus in Bali
Decrease in the number of people who are Hindus in Bali, is closely associated with economic development in Bali. The existence of Hindu religion in Bali, had begun to develop since 1920. Before the Hindu religion, the ancient Balinese beliefs or dynamism, namely the belief in the existence of ancestral spirits, from their parents are already dead. But since the arrival of priests who spread the teachings of Hinduism, since that is integrated from the dynamism of the Hindu faith. Until recently it was still teaching in the guard.

Currently the number of people are Hindus in Bali, has decreased 10%, from 1990, the number of Hindus in Bali is 95%. Thus, the current number of Hindus in Bali there are about 80% of the total head total population of Bali. Decrease in the number of Hindus in Bali is not due to conversion. But more because the number of migrants from Java who are higher than Hindu. This is regardless of the economy in Bali are more advanced, is associated with tourism industry in Bali that is getting better. Decrease in the number of Hindus in Bali are also caused by the birth of the Hindus in Bali are very few, compared to the number of births of people other than Hindu. This incident is very worrying, because it will relate to the preservation of the culture in Bali.

Hindus in Bali are very obedient to government regulations. Such as regulation of the government suggested that a family only to have children no more than two children. However, the majority religion in Indonesia, not running the government instruction. Indonesia's population, resulting in more and more.

Innocence of the Bali also strongly associated with the presence of the Hindus in Bali. Because so innocent people of Bali, they do not realize that they are oppressed, and deprived of his position. In their own areas, the migrants from outside Bali, dare to take the land and the realm of England, made ​​as a residence. Not rare Balinese anatara conflict with the settlers. As happened in Kuta, the settlers deliberately dwell in the land of Bali without the permission of landowners.

I hope whoever reads this opinion, to participate consciously preserve the Balinese culture, and continuity of Balinese Hinduism is unique and very different from the Hindus in other countries. In order for cultural preservation in Bali are not extinct, along with the changing times and demands of today's economy. Indeed, many foreigners who come to Bali, helping to preserve the culture in Bali. But that will not be enough, if not all preserve the Balinese culture, particularly the presence of Hindus in Bali.

Balinese wedding ceremony, the meaning of marriage for Hindus in Bali

Balinese wedding ceremony has a purpose in life is called Catur Purusa Artha, namely Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksa. It can not be realized all at once, but gradually. To establish a marriage for people of Bali, has many stages and preparation. Balinese wedding ceremony must be performed in accordance with the correct phase. In the preparation phase, a person who will enter the stage of marriage, in desperate need of guidance, in order to run a successful marriage, or minimize the obstacles that may arise. Guidance will be very good, if given by a person skilled in the Hindu religion, especially regarding the duties and obligations of a husband and wife, to be independent in realizing the goal of life, a purpose in life based on kindness. That's the purpose of marriage to the Balinese.

Marriage to the Balinese, is essentially a good, to give opportunity to the ancestors, to blossom again, in order to repair the damage later in life the past. Of this number all living beings, are born as humans, can do good or bad. As for removing the bad deeds into good deeds, it is a benefit to be human.

Besides aiming to bring together two human, marriage for the Balinese aim to give birth to children, descendants continue, and nurture it lovingly, really a good deed and dedication to the ancestors. Moreover if the child can be nurtured and educated to be good human beings, would constitute an act exceeding one hundred yadnya, as mentioned in the Vedas.

Marriages of Hindus in Bali, is a sacred, and sacred, and therefore at the time of the Vedas, the marriage is determined by a priest, who was able to see clearly, beyond the spiritual vision, which will be mated pair. With a view of a pastor, or not fitting a suitable bride and groom, will be seen clearly.

Couples who do not fit (spiritually), it is recommended to cancel the marriage plans, because it can definitely be fatal to both families concerned. After the time of Dharma Sastra, the couple no longer be met by a priest, but by the king, or the elderly bridegroom, taking into account the mundane, such as maintaining the dignity of the family, consideration of wealth, beauty, and others. When this began the decline of spiritual values ​​as a basis for consideration of a marriage in Bali.

Currently, to get to a wedding for the Balinese, the role of parents is not so dominant in determining mate for their child. Young people now usually define their own soul mate. Mate determination by yourself it is very dependent on the level of their ability to mate. But it seems more determined by worldly considerations, such as physical beauty, the degree of family, economic and social measures, and not the spiritual degrees.

A legal marriage for people of Bali, is a lawful religion respectively. Thus, for Hindus in Bali, through the religious ceremony called "Mekala-kalaan", usually led by a priest. The wedding ceremony was held at the home page, because it is the central point of the power of "Kala Bhucari", as ruler of the housing. Makala-kalaan derived from the word "kala" which means energy. Thus, the wedding couple in Bali, is said to have conducted a marriage valid if the procession had undergone the ceremony of "Mekala-kalaan". Mekala-kalaan meaning of the ceremony as the legalization of marriage the bride and groom, through a process of purification, while the second contained the seeds purify the bride, a groom of the spermatozoa and ova of the bride.
