The Balinese have strong spiritual roots. The main religion is “Agama Hindu Dharma” or also known as Agama Tirtha which literally means the religion of holy water.
Bahasa Indonesia (national language of Indonesia) and Bahasa Bali (the local language) are the most widely spoken language in Bali. English is extensively used all over the island.
