November is a great time for a dose of Balinese culture as the Balinese gear up for the major Galungan and Kuningan festivals. During this time, you will get to witness some of the more captivating Balinese cultural processions and ceremonies. The second biggest celebration after Nyepi, it is fascinating to know that the Galungan marks the victory of good versus evil, and also the time when the ancestral spirits come down to visit Earth. Preparations begin weeks in advance to the actual day and celebrations continue for a 10-day period until Kuningan, which marks the day the ancestral spirits return to heaven.

If you want to know when the Balinese are prepping for these two festivities, then keep an eye out for the Penjor - tall, ornamental poles made of bamboo and filled with offerings that are usually placed outside homes and businesses. Some are more elaborate than others, but the Penjors lend an air of festivities to the streets of Bali during this time. They are pretty to look at and are unique to Bali so don’t forget a shot or two for your Instagram! For more information on Galungan and Kuningan, do check out our Don’t Miss page for a better understanding on each unique day celebrated within this 10-day festival period. Our “What’s New” section brings hoards of exciting and significant new announcements including new hotel openings, new menus, new appointments and new updates from the most noteworthy establishments in town. Our “Hot Deals” section is the place to look if you want stellar services with amazing value for money. There are always some good deals to be found within this section. Partygoers, don’t forget to pencil in the island’s latest and most happening parties via our Party Agenda pages, featuring 7 of the most awaited events that will take place here this month. Bali Best Awards gives you the latest award winners and our reviews, as usual are personal recommendations, tried and tested so you can be sure you’ll be expecting nothing but stellar experiences with the award-winning Qatar Airways; the legendary KORI Restaurant, Bar and Catering; all-time Japanese favourites at Sushi Tei Bali; the iconic Cocoon Beach Club on Double Six Beach; and the quirky sophisticated oasis for art-lovers and wine connoisseurs at MÉTIS Bali.
