Museums and Galleries: Bali

Bali is blessed with beautiful beaches, stunning panoramas, high peaks, and, it’s a tourist paradise. Probably too touristy for my liking, but having said that, it’s a great place to go if you want to relax, shop and do a bit of sightseeing. As a great lover of the arts, I do spend quite a bit of time checking out art galleries and museums, and Bali has a lot of them.
