The capital of Bali, is as much a part of 'the real Bali' as the rice paddies and temples. Over the past 20 years it has been the focus of much of the growth and wealth in Bali and has all the bustle, noise and confusion associated with the fast-growing cities of Asia.
Denpasar means 'next to the market' and it has the biggest and busiest in Bali together with the night market where locals come to chat, shop and feast on Balinese and Indonesian food. Visitors will also enjoy the interesting museum which features Balinese art dating from the present back to prehistoric times as well as the arts centre and many interesting shops.
