Our Honeymoon - Bali Part III - Around Bali Island [Travel]

Thursday, 2 July 2009

Apart of chilling in the villa, we actually did some site-seeing around Bali island. We hired a driver (2 cars for 2 and a half days came to about 20 USD per person) to drove us around and we told him to take us to the main attractions only as we wanted to spend more time in the villa. So here's where we went and all the food we had!

Day 2: Morning - Ubud

Ubud's rice paddy fields

Bali 01-2

The is the babi guling in Ibu Oka, one of the more famous things to eat. Essentially spiced roast pork with rice but with certain special extras not normally found in Malaysia - the pork crackling was awesomeness, the black sausage was quite mild in flavour. A plate of pork with rice and a drink came up to about 3 USD per person. I think this was the best meal we had in Bali.

Er, I think this was the Royal Palace and its temple (we weren't paying much attention after lunch).

Bali 36-2
Shopping in Ubud Market.

Bali 12

Day 2: Evening - Jimbaran Bay

Ganesha was recommended by our driver as a good place to go to eat seafood in Jimbaran. It wasn't. The seafood was not as fresh as one would expect and it was overpriced (about 30 USD per person). The lobster meal at the villa was only about 10 USD per person! And we were hoping to have a sunset dinner, but it was too cloudy.

After dinner, we drove past Kuta town just to have a look.

Day 3: My stomach felt a bit weird in the morning and went to the toilet twice before another day of visiting.

After a 2 hour drive from our villa, we came to the biggest rice terrace in Bali. I think it was near the volcano. Felt a bit sick at this point..

Next stop, Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

Our wedding photographer was also in Bali!

Bali 32

Bali 33-3

Tanah Lot temple. Tanah = land, Lot = sea (laut in Malay), so this was the land sea temple!

Bali 34

Anyway we wanted to come here to see the sunset as it sets into the sea, but it was a bit cloudy and we were tired and lazy so we just took some photos and went back to the villa for some massage...hehe..and that was the night that I had very frequent visits to the toilet, fever and the night that I missed my lobster meal!

Day 4: Some people went off to Blue Lagoon while the rest of us stayed back to relax and had more massage in the morning. After that, we had lunch and left for the airport.

That's the end of our honeymoon. Although I had food poisoning and some disappointments (mainly food), we enjoyed it very much.

Beautiful sceneries! How I wish I was there too! ;)

gaga said...

I adore bali! Jimbaran (from what I hear) is a very touristy place to eat seafood, so we skipped it. I'm sorry you got sick, but everything else looks gorgeous!

If you ever make it again, I recommend going on a white water rafting trip. The scenery is beautiful and it's a lot of fun.

Reeni♥ said...

It looks heavenly! I bet it was hard to leave.

Donna-FFW said...

Your pictures are enthralling. Id never want to leave, like ever.

The babi guling at ibu Oka is a MUST to eat whenever you visit Bali.

Love the pictures here :)

We will have a big family reunion vacation at the same Ylang Ylang Villa this summer. It was a great help to see your vivid photos and comments!

Hmnn....always, always give the seafood a miss in Bali - check out the filthy, polluted beaches. Also the "beef" - it's rarely beef guys.

x3baking said...

Aww the poor pigs, being tied up like that. It's kind of sad, but I still eat pigs. 3 dollars a meal is such a great deal! Bali is a beautiful island.
