Hello my name is David MacElwain I am the proud owner of Bali & Beyond. Every year I travel to Bali Indonesia 2 to 3 times to shop for often sustainable, recycled and re-used products to bring back to Calgary. My aim has always been to bring culture and colour to Calgary and we’re slowly but surely doing that.
Bali is my passion and over the years I have built up a strong relationship with the local people and developed a huge reservoir of experience of what to do and not what to do in Bali.
One of the things I often remind my western friends is that we are guests in Bali and be ever conscious and respectable of their culture. The Balinese people are very friendly, kind, open and loving but we must always be aware of the cultural difference which I will continue to share throughout this guide.
