Balinese Massage: Technique or Religious Experience?

I recently went on my first Bali holiday and, I’m not going to lie, was pretty excited about the idea of getting a massage every day for about the same price as I’d pay for my cup of coffee back home. Ok, I may be exaggerating a little, but only slightly. Sure, everybody knows about Bali’s beaches but I’d also heard from family and friends just how cheap the massages and spa treatments are in Bali so they were at the top of my list. Boy was I ready to be pampered. I wasn’t, however, expecting to be converted to the church of the latter day Balinese massage.

Bali Holidays Int-Erupted: Why Volcanic Ash Clouds Ground Flights

In 2015 and 2016 Bali volcanoes erupted and their resulting ash cloud caused the cancellation of a number of flights between Australia and Bali.

They’re both drawn to them as mysterious and majestic tourist attractions but also wary of the disruptions they can cause to their travel plans.
