BALI

My recent travel was to Bali, Indonesia. We travel from Singapore to Bali with Malaysia Airline. Every aspect of the flights was good. The food served,attitude of the staff and the seats were all good. The staffs were courteous and nice.The plane was clean and tidy. Price was good deal, cheaper than budget airline.

One of the most important things about the trip was deciding on the accommodation. We wanted to stay in a nice villa with private pool. We booked villa through Airbnb. It was quaint rustic villa. We loved the settings, the clean room and the pool. Our breakfast was cooked every morning by Gadun, a warm, lovely man who couldn’t do enough for us, and cleaned our villa to 5* quality everyday.

Our Private Villa with Swimming Pool.

Few days before our trip, we booked Toyota Avanza with driver from http://www.baliindahtourholiday.com . It cost around SGD45 per day including petrol and parking. Reservation was quite fast and through Whatsapp. No deposit was required. When we came out from the Bali International Airport, we saw a guy holding a board with my name on it. We were travelling all over the Bali with the driver for 4 days. The driver is very helpful and always punctual.

At Dreamland Beach

Bali beach… to be honest aren’t that nice except for surfing. But there are few stunning beaches. Jimbaran bay, Dream beach and Uluwatu beach are some of the good beaches.

At Kintamani Highland.

From Kuta it was almost a 2hrs drive to Kintamani. The view of the volcano, the lake and the mountain is amazing! We took lunch at this place, couldn’t move my eyes from panorama!

At the same day we had visited rice terrace, monkey forest, coffee plantations, couple temples, but Kintamani Highland was definitely the best place!.

Visited luwak coffee plantation. The world famous Luwak coffee is made here. They brief and show the entire process of preparing the coffee. They have varieties of teas and coffees and they make us taste all of them free of cost but to taste the “Kopi Luwak” cost us Rp 50000.

Free Coffee and Tea

The travelling from airport to our Airbnb took us past huge sculptures with scenes from the Mahabharata and Bhagavad Gita on the street junctions. 90% of Balinese are hindu and there are estimated around 20,000 temples in Bali. We visited few important temples.

Bali is very mysterious, will travel again to this island. There’s something magical, ethereal and beautiful about Bali.
