Best of Bali

Hectic, Burgeoning and Sprawling – the capital of Bali has been the nerve center of the island’s wealth and growth in the last half a century. For some, it may look like an appalling or disorganized place but if you spend a little time on its boulevards in the comparatively affluent government and business district of Renon, you’ll discover a rather more ostentatious side of the city.

Denpasar is definitely not a tropical utopia but is as much a part of the real Bali as the cliff top temples and the rice paddies. It is the hub of the island for over 800,000 locals and here one can easily access the shopping hubs and parks. More appealing here is the myriad of authentic and palatable restaurants and cafes that lure the flourishing middle class. You may also wish to venture into the markets of Denpasar, pivotal museums of the city and indulge in the modern Balinese vibe. Usually, visitors stay in the hotels, resorts and stay houses in the tourist towns of the South and visit Denpasar on a round trip during the day time. In case traffic is lean you can reach here in half an hour from Seminyak and 15 minutes from Sanur.

Udai Varrier 3 Day Sightseeing Tour in Bali
Very Good
I was always interested in knowing about the village lifestyle of various countries, and so I would say that my three day sightseeing tour to Bali was not only an entertaining one but also an informative one. Village life is more than great over here at Bali. There are many small villages over here at Bali like the Batuan village, Celuk village and many more. Each of the villages over here has many hidden secrets that speak of the local villagers’ life, their artistic handworks, and skillful handicrafts and so on. Not to mention the Balinese are good farmers too, we can see that for real in the coffee plantations, vanilla plantations, clove farms and other rice fields. The Balinese give so much of importance to vegetation and agriculture and this is the reason there are such rich agricultural fields over here. Then speaking about the heritage of the place- the temples depict the architectural skill of the Balinese. I even explored some of the best tourist attraction spots on the second day of the trip, got to know more about the art form through the dance form Barong which the dancers performed for us. To end it was an exciting informative trip!
Devi Marar 3 Day Sightseeing Tour in Bali
Superb
Being a history student what can be more than useful than visiting the famous country Bali. When my parents had arranged for a Bali three day tour, I was more than happy. Bali is a lovely place with beautiful villages, temples, plantation groves, money forest, lakes and more. It is in fact a cluster of many things under one roof. A perfect family holiday destination spot! This is one of the most exciting expeditions that I have ever been before in my life. Our tour started on September 5th (first day) we were dropped in the hotels and we immediately were asked to meet within few hours to head to the Batubulan village, here we enjoyed the Balinese in their best dance form – Barong dance, visited the famous art villages nearby and we halted at the monkey village (great wildlife) this region gave us scope to know about the wildlife and nature of the place. Once we were done with Kintamani region, we went to the Tirta Empul (lovely place); from here we were dropped to our hotels. The second day was a visit to the famous Ayun temple, Ulndanu temple and Bratan lake view. Then we were shown the important plantations and rice terraced fields and again dropped at hotels. The third last day was super fun with visit to Beach and water gaming activity. Though my parents were not able to enjoy much of water sporting games; I and my brother enjoyed to the core. The water games offered here are surely unparalleled to any other water sports in any part of the place. The day ended in a beautiful way with a visit to the Jimbaran bay (don’t miss out the seafood being served here). Only regret is that we were not able to take up the Pandawa beach in this tour.
