Bali is famous with terraced rice paddies, among the most spectacular in the world ; coffee, copra, spices, vegetables, cattle and rice.

temple Bali is also well known as the "Island of the Gods", where temples and ceremonies can be found almost everywhere and everyday. The majority of Balinese are Hindus. Although they have a caste system, Balinese Hindus are very different from the ones in India. Religious life in Bali is almost inseparable from cultural life. One of the daily rituals is presenting offerings. Offerings play a significant role in Balinese daily life as they appease the spirits and thus bring prosperity and good health to the family.
