Arriving in Bali
The largest city and the capital of the beautiful island of Bali, Denpasar is a stunning blend of ancient and modern. From spectacular monuments and tranquil parks to glittering skyscrapers, it’s a friendly city that welcomes both business and leisure travellers.
Full of temples and palaces, there is plenty to see and do in this busy city. Book a flight to Denpasar with Qatar Airways and you’ll find a city that many tourists overlook as a destination in its own right.
If you pause for a while and explore Denpasar you’ll discover an authentic glimpse of life in Bali away from the usual tourist resorts and hotels, and an incredibly warm and friendly welcome from its people.
At the very centre of the city (quite literally) is the Alun-Alun Puputan square, with its huge, four-faced statue, which is supposed to defend the four cardinal points of the compass. It’s also an incredibly useful landmark if you get lost at any time.
To find out more about the history and culture of the island and its people a visit to the Bali Museum is highly recommended. It is spread across four pavilions, with the main pavilion housing a collection of ancient stone, bronze and wooden artefacts.
The southern pavilion has exhibitions of the country’s textiles, while the northern pavilion focuses on the history of Balinese performance art. The central pavilion is devoted to Balinese spirituality.
The Lapangan Puputan Margarana park is a large open space in the heart of the city. You can’t miss the huge Bajra Sandhi monument, which dominates the park.
Bali’s capital is also full of temples that are exquisitely decorated, including the Palace of Satria and the Royal Temples, and the beautiful Pura Maospahit, which is believed to date back to the 14th century.
