⋙ Have you already been to the new exhibition about Bali in The Tropenmuseum. Nice if you’re a fan of Bali or if you have plans to go on a holiday to this island and want to know more about the culture and the impact of tourism on this beautiful island. Informative, interesting and an exhibition that makes you think. You can have a drink at Café De Tropen where they have put Indonesian dishes on the menu especially for this exhibition (and believe us that you want to taste the saté Lilit!).
