Well, we have been in Bali now for about a week, and we still have not ventured out and sampled any of the local restaurants. We had read about the Taco Beach Grill, from Facebook groups and TripAdvisor. So we had to take a visit.
This beautiful little slice of paradise in the bustling streets of Legian, in Kuta. It has two separate sitting areas, one on the street side and a seating area on the side street. We sat on the side street area and right under the fan, on yes it was such a good spot, tranquil each.
Ok, so we had been at this place for six weeks. That's a whopping 42 days (well 41 to be precise), but who's counting anyway.
So we have stayed in two different types of accommodation here, starting in room 317 in a deluxe room;
Although this was a stop on our cruise, we didn't book any shore tours, so we decided to just have a walk around ourselves. We were lucky as P&O had put on a free shuttle bus to the centre of town, we got off and walked through the streets and found the local shops and market.
This was another trip right towards the end of our stay here in Bali. We had been to the eastern part all day, and we were both shattered and famished. The place was pretty empty, and the menu was limited.
For you who have a plan for a vacation to Indonesia. I strongly suggest you go to Bandung, West Java, and I make sure you will not regret it. Many people go on holiday to Bandung at the weekends. Because Bandung has many tourist attractions. From culinary tourism, nature tourism, and art tours. Price issued by people on vacation at Bandung arguably quite cheap.
The Tenganan Village is one of the oldest Balinese Traditional located in Karangasem Regency. It’s a unique insight into a traditional local community, an example of Bali Aga Village cultures (Hindu Prehistoric) and different from any another countryside in Bali.
So we had been traveling around Bali now for a few weeks. Our good friend, Bawa, driving us around. It was then suggested. Did we want to visit another temple? We had seen so many at this point. But we thought. Why not, we love seeing the different temple designs and history behind them.
Okay, so both Lee and I aren't exactly coffee drinkers. But they have a particular kind in Bali that is pretty famous. Coffee Luwak is the coffee in question. So we thought we'd pick some up for my dad who is a massive coffee drinker.
The show was good, the food wasn't fantastic, but the whole place was just a little bit grubby, broken matt's, scuffed walls, broken furniture.
If they could just spend a bit of money on giving the singers an environment, they deserve.
We wanted to experience a local festival, and as we saw signs for the Sanur Festival. I thought it would be awesome to go. Our lovely driver suggested that it could be done on one of the days he took us out so we wouldn't have to worry about transport.
The Angel to Angel Art of Silver is a very striking building from the outside. We went to the shop Ubud, but I think they other shops around Bali too. This is technically a silversmith workshop and retail shop but from the outside, it looks like a royal palace.
We were travelling from Legian to Ubud, and we stopped off at this butterfly park in Kemenuh. The entry price was a little higher than an average entry price to a tourist attraction in Bali, but we had heard good things so we thought we would give it a go.
Well, the Bali Elephant Safari Walk was an experience, this elephant park is based in Taro, Ubud. I wanted to have an experience of riding an elephant but also wanted to go to a place, where they respected the animals as well.
This little beauty was somewhere no other tourist guide would take you to. I would pretty much guarantee you that. We had just visited the Royal Palace in Ubud and was asked if we wanted to visit a babi (pork) buffet restaurant and see how the pigs are cooked.
Before we start, I had done some reading on this place on a particular Facebook group (i won’t give them any exposure because I thought the page was poorly managed and freedom of speech was not allowed). They had mentioned being bitten by the monkeys and having them climb all over them. I was feeling quite anxious about heading up here.
Pura Taman Ayun is a compound of Balinese temple and garden with water features. Pura Taman Ayun is in the Mengwi district in Badung Regency, in Bali. Pura Taman Ayun itself is on a large rectangle piece of land.
We were coming back from somewhere. I know helpful right. At this time we were so hungry, our friend Bawa (you will hear his name mentioned a lot in our Bali posts) recommended the Lebhagga Restaurant and Sky Lounge.
