    Perhaps someone in the know can shed some light on this.
    I think you refering to Besakih Temple?

    btw, you get tons of information for day tour when you are there.
    It abt 70-80USD for two persons.
    With driver, guide and car.
    Everything in , include entry fees if any and lunch and dinner too.
    If you take this out, I could be cheaper.

    Best you bring along your own sarongs and scarf. Basically anyone wearing shorts, bermudas or skirts have to wear sarong before you enter temple area. Long pants is ok except you have to get a sash to tie round your waist. Scarfs for sleeveless blouse or tee. This is also applicable when you go up Uluwatu Cliff.

    This temple at tanah lot is cool...can walk there during low tide. Prepare to get wet.

    My guide told me that couple not married should not visit it. It only a myth.

    just got back recently, at uluwatu I was provided sarong FOC by temple
    and be really careful with the monkeys at uluwatu, remove hair clips, specs or whatever small objects that can be snatch easily. it almost snatch my P&S camera pouch & my specs (it drop on the ground, so lucky)

    i did not take any injection, it wasn't that bad. but just stay away from the dogs (even bali folks does that)

    Ya Ho~~~

    I'm back
    Had a great time there...
    Just some tips that you might find it useful...

    You might wanna get a SIM card, you can use it to call back to SG and also if you are lost or wanna move on to the next destination you can call ur driver or taxi to pick you up...
    the cost of the SIM card is not very expensive 20k for the card with abt 10k value inside...but please top up another 20k just in case.

    Bali is a place where giving tips to the person who serve you is impt (like bell boy etc...)
    but there's no need to tip too much $10-15k Rp is more than sufficient
    If you decide to buy things.. you can always go quote below half price....you can also bargain abit if you interested to go for water sports activities. (like 4activities for the price of 3 )



    This is the driver I used...
    his name is Mr Bagus, and like his name he is really BAGUS (malay word for good)
    my friend called him the human GPS as he knows all the roads/shortcut in Bali.. his service is quite good.. provide 24hr service at the price of 350K Rp.. and there's number of times we reach the hotel like 12-1am and he was fine with it..
    If you are into spa, you can also get him to recomend... we paid like half price for the spa we went to.

    If you still havent get your driver you can try contacting him and provide him with ur itinerary he can assist you in planning ur route as well..
    You can also quote my name as my group built a good rapport with him during our trip.

    I din really take taxi around there... but from what i heard... probably around $40k and up to take from kuta to nusa dua (depending which part of nusa dua you going) not so sure abt kuta to seminyak... should be ard the same...
    if you taking blue bird... remember to ask them to charge by meter

    Weather is ok... slight drizzle every now and then... remember to bring a mini umbrella just in case..
    bring some flu preventive medication... since this type of weather you will tend to catch cold easily...
