Bali is Rising Again
South Bali Tour Gallery
Yesterday on December 17,2021, we went on a trip to southern Bali with our friend, Mr. John Cris from Philippine, who has been living in Batam – Indonesia for one year. Now he is coming to Bali for a 5 days vacation from 17 – 21 December 2021.
On the first day we picked him up at Ngurah Rai airport in the afternoon around 15.20. Then we emmediately took him to south Bali to see the beauty of the Uluwatu temple and the Kecak dance performance. Arriving at the location, I was quite surprised at the situation in Uluwatu because many tourists came to see the beauty of the Uluwatu temple. Here we think there is new hope for Bali tourism actors to rise again.
Kintamani Tour Gallery
On the second day of our trip, we visited Kintamani to see the beauty of Mount Batur, Ubud village, Tegalalang rice terrace, Bali Swing, Tirta Empul temple, Tegenungan waterfall and watch the Barong and Kris dance. The first tourist spot to visit is Batu Bulan watching the BArong and Kris dance. However, we were not lucky because the BArong and Kris dance perfomance were still closed due to the pandemic reason. Then we continued our journey to Celuk Village which is famous for its gold and Silver smith. Here we can see the process live.
The next trip to visit Alas Harum Ubud. Our friend are very satisfied the service here. Bali Swing is the reason he came here, Besides that you can take selfies with various spots with views of the rice fields. In addition, you can enjoy Luwak coffee and the process of making it. In this place we spent 1 hour because our friend really like the place. Then continue the journey to visit the Tegalalang rice terrace. We parked the vehicle on the side of the road because the situation was still not too crowded with visitors. By working 5 meters we can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the rice fields. We’re only here for while because it’s noon, so get ready for lunch at a restaurant in Kintamani. We spend lunch for 1 hours with a view of Mount Batur and lake Batur then we visit the next place, namely Tirta Empul Holy water.
After we spent 20 minutes at the Tirta Empul temple then we visited the last place on the second day of the trip, namely the Tegenungan Waterfall. We spent almost 1 hour in this place because our friend wanted to see the scenery closer after that we went back to the hotel and arrived at the hotel at 6 pm .

Depart from hotel at 8 am and arrive at Wanagiri Hidden Hill at 10.30 am. The reason i brought my friend here is that it’s a great place for selfies with a view of the lake and mountains. Our friend was very satisfied and not disappointed traveling far from Kuta.
