When we got back from Kuching, we spent one day in KL, and I finally tried a fish spa! It tickled sooooo much!!!! I could not stop giggling.
Next it was off to Bali! This time we were on an organized tour so it was jam packed! First off was one of the most well known temples in Bali, Uluwatu. People generally go there for the view and the temple grounds more than the temple itself. It’s pretty difficult to see much of the actual temple, but the place is beautiful. The woods around the temple also had lots of monkeys who were all about stealing sunglasses and food. Luckily we were spared. The views were gorgeous, and we finished the evening with a traditional dance at sunset at the temple, and then a dinner on the beach.
The next day was jam packed with activities, plus traffic jams! We visited local artisans in Ubud, drove up to a mountian for a scenic lunch, and visited a coffee plantation where they make kopi luwak. Kopi luwak is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. It’s the poop coffee. We tasted a ton of delicious coffees and teas!
Views at lunch in the mountains, and the temple in Ubud we visited where bathing in the fountains is sacred and healing:
Our last full day in Bali we spent the morning on the beach, and the evening at the other must-see in Bali, Tanah Lot temple. Despite the tourist masses, the sunset on the sea made it easy to understand why this is a must see in Bali.
Overall, it’s easy to see why Bali is such a romanticized destination is paradise, though considering how crowded it was, I also understand why I keep hearing how great Lombok is. Definitely another place to try soon!
