We reckon the eclectic Gang signs of Seminyak reflect the quirkiness that is Bali. Gangs are small lanes, usually wide enough for people or motor bikes, but sometimes cars. While ‘Poppies I’ and ‘Poppies II’ are probably the best known in Bali, there are hundreds of others to explore.
Like Alice falling down the rabbit hole – you never know where you may end up, they might lead you to the special warung or beautiful temple or cosy home stay or just pop you back out into the reality of a bustling thoroughfare.
Often haphazardly fixed to a wall, post or doorframe the higgledy-piggledy signs are a colourful mix of old and new, large and small, informative or just plain confusing!
‘Would you please tell me which way I ought to go from here?’
‘That depends a good deal on where you want to go.’ said the cat.
‘I don’t much care where…’ said Alice.
