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.
We love a good botanic garden. We have certainly been to some of the best in the world (Cairns and Singapore spring to mind more than others).
So when we were asked if we wanted to visit the botanic gardens in Bali, we just couldn’t say no.
Driving into this area was something else, high security isn't the word. Apparently, the only way into this part of town is to pass through these checkpoints, and they are there because of a bombing that happened in Bali some time ago.
