Whether you live in South East Asia or on a vacation to this vibrant side of the world, there’s an interesting façade that’s hip, rocking and rolling. If you thought SEA is only all tropical weather, pristine beaches, towering palms and year round summer vibe, then perhaps, you haven’t partied here! Its eclectic cities have no shortage of options that can set the right mood for party. Excellent nightlife, great pubs and bars fixed to an epic level.
There are too many temples in Bali that we often confuse one with the other. On the way over to Pura Tirta Empul, we went to Gunung Kawi by mistake. Well, what do you do when life gives you lemons?
After our terrifying motorbike experience in south of Bali, Olivier and I are now a little bit shaken up to hire another motorbike for our next gallivanting. Of course, there are other options such as joining group tours or hiring a car for the day but gosh, our wallets will then have the nightmares! Luckily, our graceful host offered his new motorbike for cheap rental and guaranteed us that the traffic wouldn’t be as horrible as in Kuta. Imagine our relief! Our itchy feet would be out exploring far after all! 🙂
As much as we find it irresistible to laze around in our gorgeous private pool villa, there’s a whole lot of Balinese charms waiting for us to be explored. Normally, I would do a substantial amount of research to maximize our trip but this time, I decided to get ‘lazy’ and leave out most things to destiny.
Phew, let me just say that commuting around Bali is a pain in the back, literally and figuratively. And, this is coming from a girl who lives in Cebu City, Philippines – dubbed as the worst city to drive in according to Waze Traffic App. Of course, we had an idea of how ugly it can be to drive around Bali when we motorbiked to Uluwatu but who knew it can get worse? Long story short, it was a loooong, exhausting ride from Tulamben (north-east coast) to Seminyak (southern end). Luckily, we had great deal of comfort and luxury waiting for us at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort.
