Are you crazy for Bali?

2bU and Cebu Pacific will bring a lucky ‘barkada’ of 5 to Bali

PURA Ulun Danu Bratan, one of Bali’s most popular water temples

Bali, Indonesia is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and for good reason. It has picture-perfect beaches, sought-after surfing spots, a majestic countryside, and a rich culture and history. This year, Cebu Pacific teams up with Philippine Daily Inquirer’s 2bU to bring a lucky barkada of five to the famed Island of the Gods, with Cebu Pacific’s Crazy for Bali promo.

It’s open to groups of five Filipinos, 18 years old and above. All they have to do is send their craziest, most creative and fun photo showing just how far their barkada will go to win an unforgettable adventure in Bali.  Entries must feature only five members and be sent with a brief caption in English, 50-70 words long.

The photos will be judged on their relevance to the theme (level of fun and adventure, plus daredevil appeal), creativity, originality, and online votes.

Participants may submit their entries through the Crazy for Bali promo application on the Cebu Pacific official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/cebupacificair). Deadline of submission of entries is July 23.

THE PURA Ulun Danu Bratan temple was constructed in honor of the water goddess Dewi Danu.

The winning barkada will get five round-trip tickets to Bali, Indonesia, a three-night stay at the Bali Dynasty Resort, a premier beachside resort in South Kuta, and a 30-minute Air Bali Helicopter Sky Tour over Kuta, Ubud and Sanur.

“We’re excited to make a Bali dream adventure come true for one daring group of friends,” said Cebu Pacific vice president for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog. “We’re also proud to add Bali, which was launched just last March 2013, to our ever-expanding network of routes.”

KUTA Beach is famous for its frenzied stretch of shoreline and surfer-friendly waters.

A Hall of Famer in Travel + Leisure Magazine’s World’s Best Islands list, Bali draws travel enthusiasts with varied passions.

Tourists  can start by visiting Bali’s majestic temples. One  is the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, which is among Bali’s most photographed and iconic temples, found on the shores of Lake Bratan. They can also catch a Kecak dance performance at the Uluwatu Temple,  built atop a limestone cliff towering 250 ft above the Indian Ocean.  The Kecak dance is a musical drama performed primarily by men, depicting a battle from the Hindu epic “Ramayana.”

A trip to Bali is not complete without spending a relaxing day lounging on Kuta Beach, a 5-km shoreline perfect for watching the sunset, surfing and


sampling Bali’s delectable street food.

Those who love to shop should also visit the Sukawati Art Market, which offers everything from traditional Balinese paintings, sculptures, decorative masks and jewelry, to clothes, bags and slippers, at reasonable prices.

The Philippines’ leading low-cost carrier, Cebu Pacific Air offers twice weekly flights to Bali from Manila for as low as P3,499. For more information on flights and fares, visit www.cebupacificair.com.
