    Fantastic attraction

    I came here in the afternoon to enjoy the cliff view before watching Kecak performance at sunset. The temple is in beautiful area with amazing cliff view to the Hindia Ocean. The Kecak is even more wonderful as you start sitting at the amphitheatre just before sunset. While waiting for their performance, you can enjoy the beautiful sunset. The dance itself was super prepared, beautiful choreography, has entertaining twist in the middle of the performance (no, I won’t spoil it). I will go there to visit the dance again, no further question about that!

    Fantastic attraction

    Pura Ulun Danu Bratan located in Bedugul, Bali. This place is Icon for tourism in Bali. Do you know?, this Pura there is in picture money 50.000 IDR. The attractive of this Pura is being in the middle of the lake so that when you want to go to Pura you must cross the lake first. But not every people can enter in Pura. Just people have religion Hindus who can enter the temple. In Pura, Danu Bratan has cool air, surrounded by green tree. You can take a boat surrounded this lake enjoying the beautiful scenery. Come here when you come to Bali

    Famous attraction

    This is number one tourist attraction in Bali. Everyone in Bali must visit this place. A lot of stores and cozy places, bars, motels, dorms, and lodges. It’s very crowded place. The beach is beautiful. A beach with white sand and nice view. This is a “never sleep” place in Bali.

    Worth your 15-20 minutes visit, in case you need some pictures that scream “HEY GUYS, I’M IN BALI”, due to the strong Balinese culture atmosphere.

    Excellent

    Puputan Badung Square was not on my itinerary, but I visited out of curiosity, as I learnt from my taxi driver that it had been a place of mass suicide. Though the place was witness to mass suicides according to history, it is more of a picnic point for the local people. A neat half an hour walk is enough to cover the whole place.

9. Discovery Shopping Mall

    Excellent

    Everytime I visit or transit in Bali, I will try to come to Discovery Shopping Mall. This is a mall to shop, although it has coffee shop and fancy restos facing the beach as well. It’s quite pricey though, but close to the airport, has access to the beach, and a lot of places to eat nearby. Therefore, this is a perfect mall for you who has tight time and don’t want to spend much time on Kuta’s traffic jam to reach here and there. Oh, the area in Kartika Plaza street is not as crowded as Legian. That is a plus point as well.

10. Double Six Beach

    Excellent

    This is one of the “OK” beaches around Kuta-Seminyak area. Not that stunning, but not as bad as Sunset Beach at Kuta. It has a lot of cafes, provide you bean bags and umbrellas on the beach, so you can chill there with friends, enjoy the beach, meals, and music from the cafes. I like to come here for sunset beers if I get no other plan in the afternoon, or make it as meeting point with friends before visiting Cocoon, a beach club nearby.

    Fantastic attraction

    Mount Batur is one of the very few volcanic mountains I have seen. The trek to this amazing mountain will surely be a great experience for anybody. It was a fun filled trek along with few other tourists. Allocating 4-5 hours will be apt for such a beautiful mountain. The view from top of the mountain is really amazing.

    Nice view and wonderful attractions

    I watched a beautiful sunrise in Tanah Lot. I think the beach is not that good, but the ethnic is great, typical of Bali, such as Pura (the temple). The place is very crowded with tourist. It’s a cool place to spend my morning here. A lot of spot with a beautiful scenery here, and it’s free. Along the way to the beach, there will be a souvenirs market. You can buy some with a reasonable price.

    Fantastic attraction

    Climbing Mount Agung is the most adventurous and most challenging activity what you can do in Bali. It needs some preparations, strong physical fitness and stamina but arriving to the top of Bali’s highest volcano during a sunrise trek and watch the breathtaking sunrise anove the clouds is priceless.
    Travellers who come for relaxing to Bali can also enjoy the view of the volcano from many temples like Besakih and from the East coast in Bali without making a 12 hours long climb.

    Excellent

    The cave is not big, it really is a place of unusual strength, energy, but still there is too much of what has been done for tourists at the moment.
    But the park adjacent to the cave is something amazing. Real jungles, everywhere there is a fragrance and superb views. Very beautiful! I advise in this place to spare no time and walk leisurely, enjoying the views.

    Excellent

    If you’re interested in monkeys in their natural habitat and mixed with some ruins of a temple, this is the place to go. Usually, there will be a guide from the attraction to help you navigate the place and secure you from the monkeys. These monkeys really love shiny stuff; therefore, it is safe to keep all your ‘flashy and shiny’ things away during your trip here. Overall, it will be a nice stroll in the forest and if you’re curious about monkeys, then you can give it a visit.
