SINGARAJA

Singaraja is the capital of north Bali’s Buleleng regency. Singaraja is Indonesian for “lion king.” The port town is home to a couple of the island’s universities and has a colonial vibe—it was a Dutch colonial capital back in the day. Though not so many tourists make it up to Bali’s north, just down the road from Singaraja is Lovina, a town famous for dolphin-watching tours. The population of Singaraja is estimated to be about 80,500.
