Bali is known as the “Island of a Thousand Puras”, or “Island of the Gods. The mere mention of ‘Bali’ evokes thoughts of a paradise. It’s more than a place; it’s a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind. Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, woodcarving, handcrafts, and performing arts.

Kuta – Famous for Its Nightlife
Kuta region is the center of Bali’s night-life It is located just an hour drive from Nusa Dua area. A large variety of clubs and bars featuring a young and active crowd will keep you dancing until sunrise. It is a surfer central, by far the most heavily developed area in Bali. I had visited Rock Bar at Ayana hotel which is the lifetime unforgettable experience. Kuta / seminyak offers very good shopping starting from local souvenirs from the street to all brands in the malls.
Ubud – Rain forest area, Spa & Massage and water rafting at Ayung River
Ubud is popular among tourists because of this location lies between the rice fields and forest that lies between the mountain ravines that create a very beautiful nature. Many hotels in Ubud like Kupu Kupu, Komenika and Bali Rich offers different style of villas where we feel like we are staying in between mountain n river n if we keep mobile off, we can truly forget the world. I also really enjoyed visiting one of the local coffee “Luwak” plantation n coffee testing.
White Water rafting
Bali rafting or white water rafting Bali is one of the popular adventure tours for local and international tourist in Bali. I enjoyed 9 km rafting in Ayung River for 2 hours n it was just amazing. The raft passes in Ayung river where both the side s of mountains the story of “Ramayana” is been carved. The artists have done creditable job for many years to explain the story of Ramayana with the characters.
Spa n Balinese massage
There are more than thousand spa and massage centers which offers different treatments and Balinese massages for different durations. Bliss Spa was one of the best place I found during my stay in Ubud, most relaxing, most reviving.

Tanah Lot means “Land in the Sea” in the Balinese language. Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. It is home of a pilgrimage temple, the Pura Tanah Lot (literally “Tanah Lot temple”), and a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography. The trip to Bali is incomplete without the visit to this temple.
