Kapi'olani Paka he aloha la pula

The island of Bali is part of the Republic of Indonesia and located south of the equator between Java in the west and Lomkok and the rest of the Lesser Sunda Islands in the east. Flying time from Jakarta is about one and half hours, from Singapore and Perth, Australia, two and a half hours; four and a half hours from Hong Kong; and five or six hours from Sydney or Melbourne. The island of Bali itself is only 2,175 square miles, about 400 miles around, so it is possible to explore the island by air on a single day tour. [More]


Temples and shrines with beautiful gardens are everywhere.

Kalapana – A town buried under lava

Once a fishing village on the Puna coast of the Big Island, Kalapana is now a barren land of slowly cooling rock. A few house still stand. The landscape of this former fishing village was forever changed in 1990 when Royal Garden, the subdivision in the area, was covered by 33 feet of molten lava. The lava flow, which seemed endless, continued from April through December and destroyed 180 homes and everything else in its path as it added 150 acres of land to the island of Hawai‘i. [More]
