DENPASAR CITY
 
From a population of just 15,000 sixty years ago, it has expanded dramatically to 400,000, plus another 100,000 who are residents of Kuta and Nusa Dua. Following the expansion of Ngurah Rai Airport, Denpasar became the capital of the new Province of Bali in 1958, replacing Singaraja as the capital of the former Province of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Since then most of the formerly offices of the province level moved from Singaraja to this new developed city.

The most interesting feature of Denpasar is its combination of tradition with modernity. The old provincial kingdoms and villages of the densely populated rice plain also perforate the urban landscape. While functioning very much in the traditional way, these "villages in the city" still have their exclusive banjar neighborhood, dance groups, and temple festivals. These days, residents often make a living by renting rooms to newcomers from other regions of Bali and Indonesia.

A, consequence of the city's rapid growth has been its disorganized nature. Since the road networks are not concentrated at the original urban center, urbanization tends to follow the main roads out of the city to housing projects 20 km away, leaving large expanses of rice-growing areas untouched in the middle of the city!
