- Sports and culture on the bill at Bali's Sanur Village Festival

July 07, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News reports people who are planning to book hotels in Bali for the start of August will find their visit to the paradise island coincides with the launch of the popular Sanur Village Festival.

Hot off the back of four consecutive successful events, the festival will return in 2010 and will take place in the village between August 4th and 8th.

It will be split over two different venues - Inna Grand Bali Beach and Segara Beach, in Sanur - and organisers have this year managed to pack the bill with a whole host of fun activities for visitors to watch and take part in.

Music and culture are set to play an important part in this year's revelry, with a jazz festival and an art exhibition planned for those who can drag themselves away from Bali's warm coastal waters for long enough.

Sports-mad festival-goers will also find they are well catered for, as football, basketball and rugby are all on the agenda, as is the Sanur Open Golf Tournament.

Add a photography competition, a kite display and a fun bike tour around the village and it becomes clear that there should be something for everyone at the event.

Ida Bagus Sidharta Putra, chairman of the festival, said the committee members are dedicated to making it "bigger and better every year".
