EXPLORING BALI INDONESIA
Visit the rice terraces of Tengalalang
The rice terraces of Tengalalang are very touristy but for sure worth a visit! Climb and walk along the terraces and your morning or afternoon will be filled with beautiful views. Make some stops to drink the local tee, make a picture with a local or dare to swing on one of the big swings that will take you above the rice terraces!
Buy all your souvenirs at the Bali Market
The Market in Ubud is very big, touristy, crowded and super fun! Your haggling skills will bloom when you want to buy the products, because the tourist prices are over the moon! On this market you will find beautifully hand crafted bags, hand painted colourful cloths, the handmade Bali signature masks and much much more. Here you can find every souvenir you want.
Visit the temple of Goa Gajah
There are many temples in Bali. Close to Ubud you can the Goa Gajah temple.
If you are interested in Bali’s History, you can visit the Museum of puppets, where you can find a lange amount of masks, puppets, creations which are used during many ceremonies.
Care for a walk? You can walk the Campuhan ridge walk, with nice, views, little art shops and a coconut for on the way.
A 30min scooter drive will take you to Gunung Kawi temple
Visit the Temple of Pura Tirta
A thirty minute scooter drive from Ubud will take you to the Temple of Pura Tirta. I did not even take photo’s, but I cleansed myself in the holy water of the temple. It is very helpful to have a Balinese guide with you who can explain the ritual and requirements. It’s a very beautiful experience to do, not just to witness. I really recommand this!
If you are visiting Nusa Penida, a short boatrip will lead you to Nusa Lembongan, an even smaller island. There are beautiful beaches, infinity pools and cross the Yellow Bridge for a small tour around Nusa Ceningan.
There are many opportunities to dive or snorkle in the waters around Nusa Penida, which is a highlight on your trip. I snorkelled between Manta Ray’s, saw some beautiful coral riffs and statues underneath the water.
