I had an enjoyable visit to Yogyarkata and Solo in March 2009 and had always placed Bali as a top priority destination for my future trip to Indonesia. In Nov 2010, I booked our Air Asia promotional tickets (Rm480 return) and in August 2011, I booked a 4 day ground package tour (Rm528) from Discover Orient Holidays Sdn Bhd (Tel 03-21660666) at the Matta Fair. The ground package includes airport transfers, 7 meals , hotel , a free 60 minute massage at the Lavender hotel located near the Kuta beach. Our tour group consisted of 5 people with a tour guide.
Bali is a big island with a population of around 3-4 million people, mainly Hindus. The roads in the town areas and countrysides were narrowed and congested. Our 3 day visits focussed mainly in the western, southern, central and northern regions of Bali. The tourist places we visited were:
Southern - Uluwatu temple, Garuda Wisnu Kencana statute, Jimbaran beach & Denpasar
Western - Tanah Lot
Central - Taman Ayun Temple in Tabanan, Ubud, Celuk, Mas, Sukawati market Rice terrace in Tegalalang & Holy Spring Tampaksiring temple
Northern - Batriti, Lake Beratan & Mt Batur volcano
Our tour guide could converse in English and provided excellent service throughout our stays in Bali.
