This is my favourite place in the World visited so far. Particularly, The Bali Silent Retreat. Another fantastic place to get away from it all is the Yellow Flower Café, hidden amongst the rice paddies in Penestanan, just above Ubud. I prefer to avoid the southern parts of the island which now bear the ravages of too many parties and too many people. I hope the beauty, mystery, strangeness and wonder of this island will somehow manage to prevail.
