North Bali, a cornucopia of authentic experience

A paradise for visitors, the North of Bali is still a great bastion of the island’s ancient traditions and culture. Visit towns like Singaraja, Lovina and Seririt to take in the
authentic sights, sounds and smells and to experience the friendliness of the local people first-hand. Travel a little outside of these towns to admire the beautiful nature and the
many temples scattered around the region.

Supernatural Seririt

The busy town of Seririt is known for its bustling night market, which is mainly frequented by local people. If you can believe the stories, the market is also visited by wong samar, invisible beings that occasionally appear in physical form, dressed in rags
and bearing gifts. According to the stories, you should never turn such a gift down!

See Singaraja on the hoof

Singaraja is the largest city in North Bali, with approximately 100,000 inhabitants. This former administrative capital has a unique feel, its Dutch colonial past leaving behind many wide streets and old houses with large gardens.
A ride on a traditional dokar (horse-drawn cart) is a great way to take in the sights of the city. Singaraja is peppered with beautiful statues and temples, with Pura Agung Jagatnatha being the largest and most important temple in North Bali. Just outside of
the city you will also find Meduwe Karang Temple and Temple Beji.
The Royal Palace of Singaraja is open to the public and is still home to the descendants of the last raja of Buleleng, Anak Agung Pandji Tisna, who ruled until 1950 and founded the tourist resort of Lovina.

Rise with the dolphins in Lovina

Lovina is string of villages in North Bali that together form one large resort. Founded in 1953 by the last raja of Bali, it is the main tourist hub in the region with attractions to appeal to all kinds of visitors, from footloose backpackers to laid-back villa dwellers. It offers a great variety of restaurants, serving up Balinese food as well as many different world cuisines.
