Indonesia's Hindu Island of Bali,
Info : Indonesia's Hindu Island of Bali
Whilst Islam is the predominant religion of Indonesia, the island of Bali is majority Hindu. From as early as the 1st Century AD, evidence has found Hindu worship in Indonesia and the religion took hold with trade routes from India.
As Buddhism and later Islam influenced the rest of the country in later stages, the Balinese have retained their Hindu identity maintaining various, rites, rituals and many temples dedicated to the religion.
Absorbing the religious aspect of Balinese culture can incorporate submersive cultural experiences with temple exploration. Tanah Lot pictured above for example makes for a very intriguing activity. A rock formation off Bali's coastline, it is a temple frequented by many pilgrims and it makes for a fantastic photo – particularly at sunset.

Bali Family Explorer
A 14 day family tour of the picturesque mountains and East coast of Bali, while getting away from the crowded south.
Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
