Miss World CEO Julia Morley and the Miss World Team explored the island of Bali this weekend visiting the wonderous sites this tropical paradise has to offer, taking in key places likely to be visited during the Miss World 2013 competition.
Guided by members of RCTI and Balinese guides, the team visited Besakih Temple, known as the "Mother Temple", is over 600 years old, and is the biggest and holiest of the temples on the Island. Situated 1000m up the slopes of Mount Agung, it is surrounded by breath taking views.
The Iconic Tanah Lot situated on the coast was also visited; a magnificent rock formation which is home to the Pura Tanah Lot, a pilgrimage site and place of worship.
The Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park is another fantastic location on the island, home of the magnificent Garuda statue, the national symbol of Indonesia, and a central character in both Hinduism and Buddhism.
The Miss World competition has a multitude of wonderous locations to choose from, as Bali and Indonesia as a whole has countless places of interest and spectacular beauty, the perfect country to host the competition! Roll on September!
