It was our first time visiting bali and we were very excited.Bali is a true traveler’s paradise where you’ll never run out of things to see and do. The only challenge is figuring out which attractions and activities to make time for! . We Explored stunning beaches and beautiful temples in between shopping trips and stops at cultural landmarks.
For day two of our Bali adventure, we started with a 40-minute drive from Uluwatu to the upscale area of Seminyak. One of the more developed and touristy resort towns on the island, this trendy locale offers a great mix of beaches, cultural sites, shopping, dining, nightlife, and more. Our first stop once we have entered Seminyak is Nyaman Gallery, a contemporary art gallery located in the heart of town. The word “nayaman” translates into “cozy”. We Enjoyed traditional Bali charm and hospitality as we viewed art created by local and Indonesian artists, including paintings and photographs. Almost everything in the gallery was for sale, so we bought some souvenirs and one of a kind jewellery.Then lunch at a local restaurant.We then headed to Seminyak Beach, is a popular stretch of lovely golden sand that tends to feel less crowded than other top beaches in the area. It was a great place to go swimming, and there are some excellent spots for surfing as well. Once we were at the beach, we aimed to hang out long enough to catch the spectacular sunset and it was worth it.After we have taken in the sunset at Seminyak Beach, ventured into town again for the Seminyak Night Market. Starting around 6 p.m., the street food stalls around Seminyak began selling delicious hot meals and Balinese treats. Among the most popular offerings were fish, barbecued prawns, and all sorts of satay meats. We hopped from stall to stall until we get our fill of the best Indonesian cuisine.Best of all, Seminyak Night Market is known for being easy on the wallet and the vendors and locals have a reputation for being very friendly.
Started our third day in Bali with a 40-minute drive from Seminyak to Canggu. Canggu has risen considerably in popularity over the past few years. It is now home to numerous trendy cafes, affordable resorts, bars, beach clubs, and growing number of yoga studios. The village is mainly known for its numerous beaches and its shopping scene, as well as for nearby Tanah Lot Temple.we first visited the berawa beach, offering panaromic views and great waves for surfers of all skill levels. The next destination was shopping in canguu and some of the best shops for shopping were
BERAWA LUX, MILA THE LABEL,FLKLR SURF are some.of the few.then a 25-minute drive from Canggu, Tanah Lot Temple is built on top of a large rock formation just off-shore. The name “Tanah Lot” itself translates to “land in the sea.” Th where you can pick up local handicrafts, food and drink, and accessories like sandals, sarongs, and t-shirts. The entry fee for Tanah Lot Temple was a bit higher than most other temples in Bali. However, the temple’s unique location and status as one of the most iconic temples in Bali certainly make the price worth it. We then had dinner in Restaurant "AVILA BALI" keep in mind this is the must visit restaurant in canggu if you are in town.https://www.google.com/travel/hotels/Canggu/entity/CgsI6vektLeWg9ujARAB?g2lb=2502548%2C4258168%2C4271060%2C4306835%2C4317915%2C4322823%2C4328159%2C4330862%2C4371335%2C4401769%2C4419364%2C4425458%2C4433754%2C4435574%2C4436127%2C4444000%2C4445603%2C4451649%2C4270859%2C4284970%2C4412693&hl=en&gl=in&un=1&ap=aAE&q=hotels%20in%20canggu%20bali&rp=ELicltWg4aCf6wEQhOWO3ZeCkYEzEIjcqsjZhL3qiwEQ6vektLeWg9ujATgBQABIAqIBJ0NhbmdndSwgQmFkdW5nIFJlZ2VuY3ksIEJhbGksIEluZG9uZXNpYcABA8gBAA&ictx=1&utm_campaign=sharing&utm_medium=link&utm_source=htls&hrf=CgUI4F0QACIDSU5SKhYKBwjkDxAKGA4SBwjkDxAKGA8YASgAWAGqAQsKAwjhAhICCGMYAZIBAiAB
Day 4 :-
After enjoying all the coasts , we headed inland to ubud.ubud is the centre of both traditional and cultural centre of bali.no trip of bali is complete without ubud. First we had breakfast in the hotel and headed towards the tegenungan waterfall on the way to ubud. It was one hour drive, but it os totally worth it. The beautiful waterfall is huge and there are around 100 steps to get down to.the view from the bottom was breathtaking and it was a popular tourist destination so it was very busy. Then we headed to ubud monkey forest., it is a sanctuary for Balinese long-tailed monkeys. A visit to Ubud Monkey Forest provided a wonderful opportunity to watch these monkeys in their natural habitat. There are more than 700 monkey residents in the forest, in addition to over 150 different species of trees! Visitors are asked to please not feed or make any physical contact with the monkeys, but we were more than welcome to come and observe their playful behaviour.we had dinner in one of the restaurants , it was meh and called it a day.
Today we were set to visit the ubud outskirts. So as usual we had early breakfast at the hotel and then headed to tegalang rice terrace. Terrace farming was a type of farming in the hilly areas where there are landslides. It was great interacting with locals about the farming and knowing the techniques of how they cultivated the crops.our next destination was kehen temple.it was 45 minute drive from tegalang. Kehen temple was built in 13th century.It once served as the state temple of the Bangli Kingdom, which is today the Regency of Bangli. Set amidst eight terraces and surrounded by trees, the temple has a mystical and relaxing atmosphere.There was an entry fee to entre the temple. Our dinner was at 'WANARA SPICE' , and it was pretty good.
Day 6:- like all good things this trip also had to come to an end , but we were leaving with smiles on our faces.
