Day 3

Batubulan – Tirta Empul

After breakfast, we will start our tour of Ubud and its surroundings. Our first stop is Batubulan, where we will enjoy a Barong dance performance. Watching a Barong dance is a great introduction to the world of Balinese dance which is often inspired by religion. The story is loosely derived from the Mahabharat and Ramayana, Indian stories with a huge influence on art, society and culture all over Asia. A Barong dance explains how the Balinese deal with Good and Evil, both universal powers which have to be continuously and carefully balanced. Batubulan is also famous for its stone carvers who sell their goods along roadside shops.

Day 4

Tanah Lot – Jatiluwih - Sangeh Monkey Forest

Today we will depart to Bali’s West Coast for a visit to Tanah Lot – the famous sea-side temple which has been defying the Indian Ocean for centuries. The landmark temple was built to commemorate the spread of Hinduism from Java to Bali many centuries ago. Sitting on an eroded rocky outcrop between the sea and the beach, it is quite a sight.

Later we will get into vintage cabrio VW cars and travel along forgotten villages, fairy-like temples and lush green rice fields to Jatiluwih – a beautiful area of verdant, terraced rice paddies nestled in the shadow of Mount Batukaru, the second highest peak of Bali. We will be driven by our own driver at a slow pace, while enjoying the enchanting Balinese scenery.

Day 5

Authentic Balinese Life Experience - Tibumana Waterfall – Candidasa

We will start off the day with a visit to the market of Gianyar, a city just 10 kilometers northeast of the glitz of Ubud, but decades away in time. It’s a flight of imagination back into the mystery and magic of the East. A stroll through the local market is one of the most enjoyable ways to connect with the foundations of a culture that goes back several thousands of years. Here we will see how the villagers sell many kinds of foods, fresh vegetables, fruits and meat, clothes, ceremonial equipment, flowers offering and all kinds of daily needs. After simple local lunch, we will walk through the village and learn more about traditional house architecture. The most important part is the house temple, inevitably pointing towards the mountains. It is amazing how Balinese keep their buildings consistently in line with religious principles.

Day 6

Tirta Gangga Water Palace - Besakih Temple - Kertha Gosa - Sanur

Today we will explore the eastern part of Bali and visit Tirta Gangga Water Palace. This water garden was built in 1948, blending Balinese and Chinese styles. The water comes from one of the nearby natural springs. The place has always been regarded as holy. Tirta means blessed water, gangga cames from Ganges, the holy river in India.

We will continue our tour by driving through mountainous routes to the Besakih Temple which is built against the southern slope of Gunung Agung, a sacred mountain for the Balinese. A sprawling complex of shrines, dedicated to an unknown number of gods, constitutes the religious center of Bali.

Sanur Beach is a former fishing village that has managed to cling on to its charm and wealth of arts and culture. The waters of Sanur are protected by a long string of offshore reefs, creating large, warm shallow, safe lagoons that are perfectly clear and excellent for swimming, snorkelling and a whole array of watersports. Sanur is also a great place to walk. Distances are not far, the streets are relatively quiet and there is a splendid, paved beachfront path which runs the whole length of the district.
