Bangli Travel Guide

Situated on the large and lush island of Bali, the town of Bangli is an interesting place to visit for those who enjoy exploring unusual temples.

There are a number of interesting temples located both in and around the town, several of which are dedicated to the underworld, providing an interesting contrast to other temples in the surrounding area. Bangli is also surrounded by nature, and a great way to see the area is by climbing to the top of Demulih hill.

Getting around is particularly easy as there is plenty of local transport to choose from. When it comes to eating, perhaps the best place to refuel is at the local market place, where there is a wide range of fresh and tasty dishes to choose from.

Getting There & Away

Perhaps the easiest way to get to Bangli is by flying into Ngurah Rai International _Airport, which is located outside the city of Denpasar. There is a large bus station near the airport, with several buses each day traveling to Bangli (4 hours). It is also possible to catch a bus from _Denpasar (40 minutes) and along the coast from Amlapura.
