Bali is notorious as a party place where foreigners spend a week or two drinking excessive amounts of Bintang (the number one beer in Bali) and behaving outrageously before returning home. Whilst I do enjoy drinking beer and had my fair share of Bintangs in Bali, I chose to stay away from the party places in Bali and instead, see what else the island has to offer. We had only two full days on the beautiful island, but we managed to climb a volcano, visit the monkey forest, take part in a cooking course, ride motorcycles, wander through markets, and explore rice fields amongst other things in this short period of time. We were met with fascinating places and kind hearted people. I am sure that the bars would have been fun, but these little shared experience will stay with me (us) for quite a while. And we still got to drink a Bintang or two somewhere during the day. Thus this video is titled Bali Minus Bintang as it showcases a side of Bali that is separate from days of drinking Bintang.
