There were three temples I wanted to visit in Bali, Lake Bratan Temple, Tanah Lot Temple and Uluwatu Temple. Its a bit of shame that due to time constrictions, we were not able to visit the first two but when we finally got to Jimbaran we decided to sneak away a couple hours to see Uluwatu Temple in its sunset glory. Pura Luhur Uluwatu, the …

My amazing and beautiful trip to Bali did not finish at Ubud, after the peaceful stay at Payogan filled with amazing sunrises and sunsets at Bali’s most beautiful mountain views my next stop took me to the recently opened Rimba Jimbaran Hotel. This place is such an impressive sanctuary away from the chaos that people have known Bali to be with its beautiful hanging gardens, …

So we are here finally at Jimbaran Bay and our hotel Rimba Jimbaran. You can’t visit this place without visiting the famous seafood restaurants on the beach itself. It’s a classic story of Bali that most travellers tell of when they get back to their families and friends. You come to the beach in the afternoon, sit on the sea of tables on the sand …

Tegenungan is an area south of Ubud and yet another popular destination for tourists. One of the many attractions in this area is the waterfall forest. Bali has heaps of waterfalls when I researched before the trip, they are mostly open to the public with some needing a longer and strenuous hike than others. For us the idea of hiking through a jungle to get …

Surrounded by the rice fields, mountains and glorious sunsets, Ubud was definitely a favourite place to go in Bali. Forget the completely packed out tourist nests of Seminyak or Kuta, Ubud is definitely the real Bali. This part of town is definitely special. Every time we …

What would you normally think about in the case of hiking a volcano? At the top you there is a giant crater where you can see the steam and the lava with the danger of plummeting into a very painful death? No? Just me then. The one thing Irene and I wanted to do in Bali was to climb and conquer an active Volcano, so …

Bali is well known throughout the whole world as a destination for sandy beaches, big waves, good food and ridiculous nightlife but that’s not really what Bali is actually about. Between all the mountains and the beaches, right in the centre of the island lies many Indonesia’s Iconic sceneries and one of them would be the rice terraces. This particular Rice Terrace that we had …

Ubud is an area of Bali that is located in the middle of the island, lies between the oceans and mountains that surrounds Bali. It lies between the imagined and the real, perhaps this is why it feels like Ubud still contains a little bit of the Old Bali magic left. For most that come to Bali, the centre of parties and nightlife in Seminyak or …
