Beautiful Bali !

Bali traditional

Bali a great place where culture and modern meets.

Bali is the largest tourist destination in Indonesia and is located between Java and Lombok. The capital city is Denpasar. Although its a small island but it has a population of almost 4.22 million and has all the facilities to provide the citizens and tourist of everything. The most of Bali’s population is Hindu, you can see it  nearly in every aspect of their traditional life. Like ritual dance performances, daily offering food/ flowers to the gods in front of their store, temple or beach. The atmosphere is very relax, everyone is taking their time. No rush rush what so ever!  Feels like flower power time in the seventies haha. Its all about relaxing, spa, great food/drinks, surfing and doing sightseeing. The people are very nice! We already went to this beautiful island twice. We writing this post because its been 2 years ago we went to Bali during Christmas holiday. It remind us of the lovely time we spend there! It was so funny seeing Santa Claus walking on the beach on a hot sunny day haha .

Here is a list of places we visited and maybe some trip ideas for you whenever you go to Bali:


Kuta is the most famous tourist place in Bali and definitely one of  our favorite hotspot in the world! We love the hustle and bustle of this place. Famous because of its spectacular white sandy beach, great place for surfing, both luxury and budget hotels are available,  a good place to go out, plenty of restaurants with international/indonesian cuisine, Water Boom Park and shopping center.

* Lovina

If you want to avoid the tourist hotspots of the south side of the island, Lovina is a good place to go. famous of its calm sea water, blackish chromatic sand and of course dolphins. Here you can enjoy delicious food, souvenir shops, go out places, several spa facilities, snorkeling and participate a dolphin watching tour. If you want you can even swim with dolphins at the Melka hotel Bali in one of their salt water pools. This is the only hotel in the world which offers to swim with these cute dolphins. Our nieces also from holland took this opportunity because it was always their dream to do this. Bali is also famous of its waterfalls, make sure to visit one of them. The Gitgit waterfall is a must see, height about 35 meters and is surrounded by tropical trees. Comparing to Kuta, Lovina is more quiet. But believe us there is so much more to see of Lovina!

* Tanah Lot Temple

The Tanah Lot is located in Tabanan and its about 20 km from Denpasar .  This temple is built on a large offshore rock in the middle of the sea and here  they worship the sea gods. To reach the temple we first had to walk through a street with lots of souvenirs shops and restaurants which leaded us to the sea. There was also a place near the sea where you can make a picture with a huge snake!  It was scary, fascinating but sad at the same time. We don’t know what the people gave him, but it was like this snake was high! Awake but  also not ” awake” ,very weird.  Once you reached the beach you have this beautiful view!  Make sure you go when the tide is low, so you can walk to the temple and make a tour. Its also beautiful when the tide is high, cause then it looks like the temple on the rock is floating. The sunset here is amazing!

  1. Hi Cewinta! Thank you for visiting my blog about Corregidor. The list of sites you recommended to visit seems interesting. Bali is not far from the Philippines so I hope my wife and I will be able to visit it as well.

    • Hi Alex! It was very interesting to read about the history of world war 2 (Americans-Filipinos). Yes Bali is just a few hours flight from Philippines. Hopefully we will be able to visit your beautiful country too!

  2. Our trip to Bali was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. The culture was as entrancing as the scenery. We loved every experience and every moment. 🙂

    • It is a great experience to visit Bali, a beautiful paradise on earth. And wow that picture of Bali breakfast looks so delicious and the environment is beautiful!!

    • Hi Stephana! You have a lovely blog. Bali is really a beautiful island to visit. Are you going anytime soon? Glad you like the post! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  3. Hi there,
    Thanks for visiting my blog, I’m glad you liked it.
    This post of yours brought back a lot of good memories. I LOVE Bali! I go there every chance I get.It’s a long way from Texas so i don’t get to go very often.
    I think it must be the same snake I saw at Tanah Lot, but I saw they had 2 of them.
    From your pictures, it looks like you saw the Monkey Dance at Uluwatu too. Fantastic, wasn’t it? The setting watching the performance while the sun set over the ocean was just unforgettable. I LOVE all those dances, the costumes,etc.
    I haven’t made it to Lovina yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Hi Capt Jill! We Love Bali too, a beautiful island indeed. Yes there were 2 snakes, a big one and a smaller one. We agree the Monkey Dance at Uluwatu was reallyyy impressive. The performance was so GREAT and the atmosphere/environment was breath taking. Lovina is a wonderful place too, a little bit quiet but a perfect place to escape from chaotic cities of south Bali hihi. Worth to visit next time you go :). We haven’t been to Texas before but its still on our bucket-list! Thanks for stopping by.

      • Hi Cewinta,
        Thanks for your comments. I absolutely agree with you about Uluwatu. I want to go and see that again. I’ve never been to Lovina before but it sounds nice too.
        If you ever make it to Texas, send me an email. I can recommend some places to go and if you wind up near here, be sure and come for a visit. 🙂
