Blanjong Temple

Despite being one of the most beautiful Bali temples for tourists to feast their eyes on, the Blanjong Temple (also known as the Pura Blanjong Temple) is often overlooked by tourist itineraries. Nevertheless, the temple is neither short of architectural beauty, nor is it at all bereft of contribution to the country’s cultural heritage.

This was our first day in Bali & it became more mesmerising with the Mount Batur Trek !! with a well coordinated itinerary, We enjoyed this trek to much extent. Special thanks to our tour guide Ulawa, she was obedient and helpful enough, she took us to the top with utmost care & i will recommend her name to anyone who plans to have this trek ! Thanks Thrilophila For becoming a medium to connect us with this wonderful location !!

Deb Abbott Bali Family Package
It had been a long time since we were planning for a family vacation, but it wasn’t possible if we were working and children’s schools. But with Thrillophilia’s assistance it was real quick to decide when and where, we decided to go to Bali and it is beautiful, as well as a must visit place for anyone.
We booked a tour to Bali from Chennai, we were relaxed with the help of Thrillophilia, as they did everything on our behalf, it would have been a tough journey without them. Love and support.
"njce experience..awesome place."
I went to Bali with my family and got few things customized in the plan and even after adding things to the plan no other services were compromised Fully satisfied and happy from the team.
Jyotis Ganaka Bali Package from Mumbai

Ghanashyam Jain Bali Package From Delhi
At first we weren't really sure about travelling through some travelling company specially when it is n completely unknown place to us. But must say the tour was amazing and the people are completely reliable.
I booked a honeymoon trip to Bali being advised by one of my friends. I opted for Thrillophilia being my tour operator, and it is absolutely contented that it was worth it. We being first time visitors it was advantageous for us travelling with experienced people operating the tour. Thank you team.
