  1. Cheap Accommodation
  • CEMPAKA 2

Losmen Cempaka is a right place to stay, because it’s located in the center of bali. only 10 minutes walk to Kuta beach and 3min walk to the chaotic SkyGarden club. All room have shower, ceiling fan, and bathroom.

 

Single Room Rp100,000
Double Room Rp150 000
Room With Air Conditioner Rp200 000

An unplanned stay here, couldn’t find the link for the hotel booking. But if you came across the name, it’s a definitely a value for money stay.


  1. Surfing

Have you ever admired and envied the impressive sight of a surfer dance on the water with a board? Have you ever thought how great it would be to be able to do it but unsure how to start or where to go for help?

Sunkissed Surf School is the answer. Located just 25 meters away from Kuta beach, it is specially designed for those who are curious about the sport of surfing.

I feel that its better to get a lesson here compared to down the beaches as Sunkissed instructor are very well prepared in guiding us and definitely a good value for price! Decided to took beginner surf lesson from a recommendation from our friend. Good experience for our first time surf with very nice staff!

 


  1. Sightseeing / Cultural Study
  • GOA GAJAH

Goa Gajah, or Elephant Cave, is located on the island of Bali near Ubud, in Indonesia. Built in the 9th century, it served as a sanctuary.

From Kuta to Goa Gajah. it took approximately 1h 10mins, 39.8KM by bike without traffic. Cheap entrance and sarong hire included. Lots of up and down walking and interesting scenery. You can spend a little time or a lot.


  1. Mountains
  • MOUNT AGUNG
  • LAKE BATUR
  • TRUNYAN VILLAGE

This crystal clear lake, 65 meters deep, was formed by an ancient volcanic eruption ( Gunung Agung/ Mount Agung)

We are high in the mountains of Bali here and the temperature is usually about 15 degrees cooler than down on the coast, and even more so at night. That, coupled with the often cloudy and drizzly weather, makes a sweater or jacket advisable in the day time and vital after sunset but we survived with only ponchos which doesn’t help at all. You could head to trunyan village across batur lake.

The village of Trunyan is squeezed tightly between the lake and the outer crater rim of Batur, an almighty volcano in Kintamani. This is a Bali Aga village, inhabited by descendants of the original Balinese, the people who predate the arrival of the Hindu Majapahit kingdom in the 16th century.

The only way to access this village, is by boat across the lake and you will find skulls lying as they aren’t buried.It is believed that the dead bodies of the “pure” people are stranded there. Its quite haunted there so don’t try to do anything stupid. Respect these places.

 


  1. Landmark
  • TANAH LOT

Tanah Lot is one of the important directional temples in Bali. The temple is located on a rock just offshore. It is said to be the work of revered 15th century Hindu priest Nirartha and forms an important element of Balinese spirtualism and mythology.

Tanah lot was amazing. Cheap price to pay. Beautiful site and story to the place. Lots to buy if you love shopping. Even saw the holy snake.

 


  1. Beaches
  • DREAMLAND BEACH

Dreamland Beach is a beach located on the Bukit peninsula, on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The beach provides basic accommodation and cafes for surfers and day-trippers. It is also renowned for its dangerous shore break.

One of must see place in Bali, great nature, big waves, just a perfect, very beautiful and lovely place. They have an infinity pool facing the beach as well for Rp100,000 / SGD10

 


  1. Attraction
  • ULUWATU

Firmly pinned on the Asian surfing map, the south coast – Uluwatu in particular – doesn’t do badly when it comes to beaches either. Between tanning sessions on the white sandy beach, look out for monkeys in the trees as you take a dip in the refreshing rock pools. Also a perfect location for a sunset. A good wrap up for the day.
