What makes Bali a unique and special island is its ability to be lively and relaxing at the same time. In two hours, you can go from the crowded and worldly Seminyak to the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere of the Bali Butterfly Park (Taman Kupu-Kupu in balinese), the largest park of its kind in all of Indonesia. In this enchanted location of 3000 square metres, photo buffs and children can spend a peaceful hour among luxuriously green plants, foot bridges and a splendid variety of flowers, surrounded by the harmonious beating of the wings of hundreds of different species of vividly coloured butterflies and insects on the verge of extinction. There is even a special room where you can watch the stunning transformation of the chrysalis into a butterfly and also have a multitude of butterflies right on top of you, so you can see them in all their grace and splendour. Meanwhile, glass cases contain fascinating scorpions, spiders, beetles, as well as other types of butterflies from around the world and there’s also a small area outside, populated by other insect species, such as the black rhinoceros beetle and chameleon-like leaf insects. For real enthusiasts, a must-see is the “Atlante” moth (or Cobra Butterfly) which, with its 30 cm wing span, is one of the largest insects in the world, earning its name for the markings on its wings which are similar to those of the serpent of the same name. The Bali Butterfly Park is highly relevant worldwide in terms of research, breeding and the preservation of butterflies, lepidotteri whose lives are as fascinating as they are brief.

Natural pigments & dyes in Balinese traditional crafts
Colors play a vital role in Balinese culture and identity: they are symbolic and their origins are sacred. Traditional Balinese arts and crafts arise from the interconnection between man, the forces of nature and the cosmos, resulting in a divine unity.
