- Head to Bali for the Kuta Karnival

July 31, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Kuta Karnival, one of Bali's most popular annual events, is due to return to the island later this year.
People spending time in the Indonesian resort during the festival can look forward to plenty of live entertainment, movie screenings, delicious food stalls and children's activities.
Previous editions have also included kite-flying, cartoon exhibitions, sand sculptures and the release of turtles into the sea.
Although the dates for this year's edition have yet to finalised, the carnival usually runs for a nine-day period in late September.
The event was founded in response to the 2002 terrorist bombing that devastated Kuta, one of Bali's busiest beach resorts and surfing destinations.
Local residents, businesses and government organisations got together to establish an event that would honour the victims while looking towards the future.
Using the tagline 'A Celebration of Life', the carnival was created with the aim of strengthening community ties and enhancing the island's reputation as one of the world's top tourist spots.
The festival also allows visitors to enjoy Kuta's famous beachfront, which offers five kilometres of pristine sand and clear waters.
People planning a stay in Bali hotels will find a large selection of accommodation at, which recommends the Jayakarta Bali.
