yea it was so nice that i didn't realise the meat i ate had pig's hair. aha
i cant rem which taxi i took but i think i was overcharged. probably was something like S$10 for a 15 mins short ride.
so we decided to rent a car for onli S$30 for the entire day and we could drive anywhere we wanted. pretty good road signs they have
yes bali isn't a cheap place and careful went u change money if u see very high price, sing dollars is better then us dollars.
Hey all... Bali is a great place for photo taking... Especially the building structures and decors...
sharing some of my travel pics from Bali over here:
digging up this thread coz I'm headed there again in end-May.
Heard that tourism has been adversely affected by the lack of Japanese tourists to this lovely island.
Some good deals for accomodation.
Take the chance to sappork their tourism industry in whatever small way.
Contacting the driver which I got during my previous trip. Waiting for his reply.
Any comments on a 1 day trip starting at Tuban/Kuta area in the morning, then heading east to Klungkung and then north toward Kintamani? Finally ending the day at Ubud. I think total journey might be about 150km or so, but with the roads and traffic, probably will allow 3.5 hours just for the travelling.
Any recommendations on places to stop and check out in the Klungkung/Gianyar area?
Don't think I have time to detour to the Bersakih temple complex.
Has anyone spent much time around Klungkung area?
I read that it was the seat of power in Bali a few hundred years back, but has dwindled in importance. Just wondering if there are any places worth checking out there, which I can add to my planned trip.
Anyone had experience bringing a 15 month old infant to Uluwatu and Tanah Lot for sunset shoot ?
Basically i will be carrying my girl plus shooting which i doubt i can manage so was comtemplating if i should just skip most of the places and just relax in my hotel for the entire trip...
Still worthwhile to go around, in my opinion, but probably better to manage expectations with regards to photography. Perhaps just bring a point-and-shoot?

I am going to Bali for 5D4N in June.
Interested in their dolphin trip.
Have anyone of you went for this before?

Just came back from a 6 day trip to Bali. Didn't do anything much as both of my kids were sick. They are 3 and 1 respectively. Can check my blog for pictures.
All in all, I think we spend around rp 260,000 at this temple. Actually the driver has warned us before but I guess this temple most probably is worth visiting at least once but you got to prepare to folk out big amount here. Remember to bring small change (10,000 notes or something)..
The places I been to are the usual tourists areas. Maybe if you pass by ubud, you can go to Tegallalang Rice Terrace. Nice place for photo taking.

Thank you scramblur11 for the info on Bersakih temple complex. Yes I've read that it's the biggest one in Bali, but didn't know abt the high prices. Will take note.
How long was the journey there when you went, and where did you start from?
Left Ubud, Tegallalang Rice Terrace (9am) > Barong Dance at local village (945am~1045am) > Stop near a cliff for photo stop, view of rice terrace (12pm) > Bersakih Temple (1230pm~145pm) > Lunch near Kinatamni Volcano (220pm~335pm) > Coffee Plantation (4pm~430pm) > Pura Tirta Empul Temple (440pm~510pm) > Monkey Forest (550pm~610pm) > Dirty Duck Resturant at Ubud (635pm)

Hi… my family plan to stay at Ubud for 2 day this coming june. My question is regarding the temperature in and around Ubud, as I believe that Ubud is above sea level… is it advisable to bring a sweater for the elderly ??
Also… is the sky above Ubud, fill with Stars at night, since Ubud is located at a more Ulu part of Bali ??
Thxs for any info…
