Bonsai in BaliBonsai in Bali
You may be surprised to find out that there are Bonsai in Bali and although they may be difficult to find they are well worth the visit. The first step is to find a "bemo" driver who understands exactly what you are looking for. Then trying to locate them is another problem as the streets are seldom named and I don't think they have heard of numbers, but this is part of the fun of it. Most of the nurseries are located in Sanur close to one of the main tourist areas.

Indonesian Bonsai Expo
Promote bonsai as an art form and to help artists and small nurseries to market their bonsai mainly for export orientation. Other objective is to educate bonsai farmers to cultivate bonsai by intensive and productive method.

While not strictly Bonsai, these are sometimes grown as Bonsai and as shaped trees resembling animals and people. Whilst in Indonesia I saw a number of these interestingly shaped plants on display in an exhibition in Bali. Some of these shaped trees can be seen here.
