Denpasar is the capital of Bali, but most travellers breeze past this city in favour of the beach and highlands. While it isn't really geared to tourism, you can find several historical, multi-cultural, traditional, and religious gems. There are museums and monuments from the Dutch colonial period, along with several temples that will no doubt surprise you with their allure. 

Denpasar’s many public facilities hold public events, whether it’s a big annual happening like the Bali Arts Festival or just a weekly soccer school practice. Have a walk around its 2 large green squares, although you should be extra careful when crossing the streets as the traffic can get very busy.
