Bali Finale - 8 Popular Places to Visit

This shall be my final post for my Bali trip! I know I know this took like forever but I decided to finish it anyway. You gotta finish what you've started right? :p 

My final post will be the conclusion of 8 popular places that I've visited in Bali! 

1. Coffee Plantation

This must be included in your itinerary if you're a coffee lover! I'm not that into coffee due to my weak stomach, but I love the fragrant of coffee. 

Bali is very popular with its LUWAK COFFEE - seeds of coffee berries once they have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). The name is also used for marketing brewed coffee made from the beans. (extracted from wikipedia)

YUCKS, are you asking me to drink the poop from the cats??????

Okay, it's still one of the top and expensive coffee in the world, I shall try that, hmmm...#YOLO.

The almighty Asian palm civet.

I think they're too pitiful, locked up in the small cage and their only life purpose is to, POO. :(

All these are for us to try! From coffee to tea to fruit tea...

And this is the LUWAK COFFEE, paid for about RM 15+- per cup.

The coffee is not filtered, the bottom of the it is undrinkable (at least for me). So the cup is pretty small, strong coffee scent but I'm not very fond of ''unfiltered coffee'', I prefer smooth one more. 

You could buy all the tea/ coffee as souvenir after the tasting session.

2Tirta Empul Temple 

Tirta Empul temple is famous for its holy water where Hindu Bali people go for purification. My friend told me luck will be with us if we ''shower'' in the holy water.

This is it, the HOLY WATER! We didn't exactly ''shower'' for 2 reasons: Long queue and we didn't brought extra clothe with us. So we just touched the water, washed our hands as our simple style of ''showering'' ritual.

3Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

Next will be this architectural beautifully built rice terrace! I never seen a rice terrace built so efficiently in good order, fully use of every single acre for the growth of rice. It looks like a small mountain filled with rice plant.   

Still wanted to take picture although I'm a little afraid of height, that explains my awkward smile.

4. Pura Ulun Danu Bratan

I named this the "TEMPLE IN THE LAKE". It's one of the most exotic temple I've ever seen, as if the temple existed hundred/ thousand years ago.

Guys also wants to selfie, this place is heaven!

My personal photographer aka bf likes to ask me pose like this. Can I make a good hair commercial model? :p

5. Tanah Lot

This place is the "CURSED LAND" for couples. There are rumours of couple breaking up after visited this land together. How true is it? Well, 2 couples in our travel gang are still safe and sound together, it really depends on what you believe. I'm not gonna skip this beautiful place for unproven curse, it's a waste not to embrace the beauty made by our mother nature.

They have this ''face washing'' ritual, haha sorry I don't know what to call. We have to pay after we splash water on our face, and they'll stick some rice on our forehead.

This man really tried too hard, he wet his hair too. =.=

The beautiful sunset, I love beaccchhhhh!!!

6. Jimbaran for Sunset Dinner

7. Volcano Lunch at Mount Batur Volcano

8. Pura Luhur Uluwatu

That conclude the story of my Bali trip, wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Travel tips:

1. There's a charge of entrance fee for most of the famous temples in Bali.

2. Tourists with long hair are required to tidy up their hair (tie up) before entering Tirta Empul temple.
