With all the restaurant, bars and shops, it’s easy to forget that Sanur is actually a village…nothing like the most incredible ceremony to remind us of the environment we live in and the respect we need to pay to the beliefs of this country.

Galungan and Kuningan fall at different dates every year because the Hindu calendar is actually 210 days long. It is a very important time during the calendar with many local people leaving their ‘town’ homes and work to go back to their family villages for celebration and ceremony. Local schools are on holidays and many offices shut down for the 10 day period.
