珀尼达岛(Nusa Penida)是巴厘岛东南面的一座离岛。大多数游客只是匆匆坐船到珀尼达岛的水域进行水上或水下活动,但这片陆地几乎被大家完全忽略了。Lonely Planet上对这里的介绍是如此描述的,“这是一片自由而天然的土地,它回答了我们这样的问题:如果旅行者从未踏足,那巴厘岛会是什么样子?” 但并没有一个旅行书对这个岛上的活动或景点有着具体的介绍,因为岛上的旅游业并不发达,也并没什么很正式的开发过的旅游景点。于是我们带着好奇心来到了这个暂时还未被大量游客摧残过的地方,这个谜一样的地方。就在这个冷门的目的地,给我们带来了一个又一个的惊喜。

Nusa Penida is a small island right next to Bali main island on the south-east side. Most of the tourists would just come here to enjoy the water sports, but the island itself has been largely overlooked. Lonely Planet says “It’s an untrammelled place that answers the question: what would Bali be like if tourists never came? ” There are not much details you will find on travel books about Penida’s sights or activities, and it doesn’t really have any formal sights or tourism infrastructure. But it is a good thing we thought, we like place that is untouristed. So we came and it all turned out great at the end, this island is full of surprises and awaits for discovery.

当地人与其他巴厘岛地区的居民一样,大部分信奉印度教。岛上的生活条件还是很艰苦,但一旦要去寺庙里进行庆典祭祀,大家都会换上家里最美丽的传统服装,梳妆打扮一番,妇女头顶祭品,与全家人盛装出席。我们很幸运的见证了一次他们在海神庙的活动,还被友好的当地人邀请进入他们典礼。在我们以惊人的速度进入科技现代化的年代,我很感慨巴厘岛人对自己的传统与信仰的坚守,如此美丽的文化以及手工艺得以良好的传承。

Most of local people in Penida are Hindu. Although the life here is still quite hard, but every time they go to the temple for ceremony, they would all dress up in their most proud traditional clothes, set the hair and joining the biggest social event along with their family. One day we passed by one of their big event and luckily got invited going inside of the temple. In today’s overwhelmed modern technology dominated world, I found it very inspiring that Balinese are still well committed to their traditions and beliefs, therefore such a beautiful culture and heritage craftsmanship are going to be passing on to new generations.
