Things to do - general

 

Gianyar is a regency (kabupaten) in the Indonesian province and island of Bali, Indonesia. It has an area of 368 km² and population of 470,380, making it the second most densely populated district in Bali (after Badung). Its regency seat is Gianyar. The civil registry survey of April 2011 listed 480,447 people, of which 469,929 were classified as Hindu.

The town of Ubud, a centre of art and tourism, is located in Gianyar.

Condotels and Apartments ban

Although Badung Regency, Denpasar and Gianyar Regency are the three richest regions in Bali and most of their wealth comes from tourism, in February 2012 Gianyar Regency officially banned the construction of new increasingly popular condominium hotels (condotels) and apartment facilities. Unlike the Badung Regency and Denpasar where condotels and apartments remain in high demand for tourist developers and investors, Gianyar Regency wants to protect local entrepreneurs.

The regency is divided into seven districts (kecamatan), listed below with their 2010 Census populations:

  • Sukawati 110,429

Sports & nature

In football, Bali is home to the football club Bali United, which plays in the Liga 1. The team was relocated from Samarinda, East Kalimantan, to Gianyar, Bali. Harbiansyah Hanafiah, the main commissioner of Bali United, explained that he did the name change and moved the homebase to Bali because there were no representatives from Bali in the highest football tier in Indonesia. Another reason was that local fans in Samarinda prefer to support Pusamania Borneo F.C. more than Persisam.
