Gianyar is a regency in Bali as the second most densely populated district and also the art center on the Island of the Gods. A lot of painters, dancers, sculptors, and another artist inhabited in Gianyar could be the main reason of why it is always packed with tourists. To name a few, Sukawati, Tampaksiring, Tegallalang, or even Ubud has their own charm like art market, temples, museums, and also the beautiful scenery of subak – the water management (irrigation) system for paddy fields. Another exciting place to visit in Gianyar is Batubulan and Singapadu villages. This place is renowned for its sand carving and traditional dance performances like Barong Dance and Keris Dance. Even though there is still a dense vibe for its culture, this regency is one out of three upscale regions in Bali – after Badung and Denpasar. Nevertheless, this area is banned from the construction of new hotels and apartments to protect local entrepreneurs. Complete your visit to Gianyar by its tasty local foods in Jalan Ngurah Rai. The market is getting more crowded at night and not only serves you with delicious foods, but you may also find Bali’s clothing items and fashion accessories to make your visit to the Island of the Gods more perfect.
