I took my flight to Kuala Lumpur from IGI Airport, Delhi.
The flight (Air Asia) costed me 20k INR (295 $).
The flight's duration was 5 hrs 30 minutes. As the time difference between India and malaysia is 2 hrs 30 minutes, so i reached kuala lumpur around 7 (local time) in the morning. During this flight, i was lucky to saw the sunlight coming through the clouds, and that was just *wow*.
My next flight was from kuala lumpur to Bali (Ngurah Rai International Airport) at 5:50PM, so i had to wait at the kuala Lumpur airport for around 11 hours.
Since i am a vegetarian, it was a lot of struggle for me to get some vegetarian food to eat at the airport.
At 5:50PM i boarded my flight for Bali and reached Bali airport at 8:55PM.
I took a private taxi from outside the airport for 100,000 IDR after a lot of bargaining.
Tip: Don't exchange your money at the airport, instead exchange it in the city, you will get much better rates and there are many shops that are open until 3AM also.
Then i reached my hotel "Grandmas plus hotel" in Seminyak. I was joyful to encounter the cold breeze of night.
The hotel staff welcomed me with a welcome drink and i was quite happy with the location and atmosphere around my hotel.
I woke up and went for the breakfast and after that i roamed around on bicycle(provided complementary by my hotel) for some time.
Then i checked out from grandmas hotel and moved to my next hotel that was "pelangi bali hotel & spa, Seminyak". I loved this hotel as it was huge and is at front of Seminyak beach.
I went to see the beach after putting my luggage in my room.
I rented a scooter for 200,000 IDR for 3 days.
It was time to pamper my tummy and soul and i was lucky to find an indian restaurant in Seminyak (i needed vegetarian food) and the taste was better than most of the restaurants in india itself. Imagine eating "chola bhatura" in bali :D
The journey of exploring bali on scooter began from here and i went to explore the beauty of Tanah lot temple.
Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. It is home to the ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple Pura Tanah Lot, a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography.
It was time for some beer, and i sat at "fat boys, the burger bar".
I had dinner at the same indian restaurant at which i had my lunch.
*Sleep Time* :)
Had my breakfast at hotel itself in the morning and took a dip into the pool :)
Time to see the green beauty of bali... *ubud*!
After around 1 hour of ride on my scooter i reached my resort "agung raka" in ubud.
I felt euphoric to see the beauty of the villa itself.
A 20 min ride from my resort to this waterfall, i parked my scooter for 5000IDR and rushed in excitement to see the waterfall.
Had dinner at little india, ubud.
*Sleep Time* :)
Early morning dip into the pool.
Had lunch at this restaurant and the food was just wow ❤️
After having lunch it was time to drive through around *mount batur*.
Mount Batur is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The south east side of the larger 10×13 km caldera contains a caldera lake.
Returned the scooter in seminyak and went to sanur by taxi, it costed 100,000 IDR after lot of bargaining and went to my resort in sanur.
It was unexpectedly a beach front resort and i couldn't just control my happiness after seeing the beauty of that place.
*Sleep Time* :)
Early morning at inna grand bali beach.
After exploring bali it was time to explore the most beautiful island of bali ... *Nusa Penida*.
Booked "crown fast boat" prior to my arrival in bali. It costed me 4,50,000IDR for round trip including pick and drop from my hotel in Nusa Penida. The fast boat took only 30 minutes from sanur to reach nusa penida.
The stay was very beautiful surrounded by the beauty of forest.
I hired scooter for 70,000IDR from the hotel owner himself and went to crystal bay.
Then i went to explore 2 of the beauties of Nusa Penida that are "angel's billabong" and "broken beach".
The drive was around of 1.5 hour from my hotel and the road was very messy and it was very challenging to ride scooter on it, but as there is this saying "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations", this saying was also appropriate in this case. I encountered something breathtaking ❤️
*Sleep Time* :)
In the morning around 7AM i left my hotel for most awaited part of the journey -> *kelingking beach*.
After 45min of drive i reached my destination and rest of the story could be described with pictures only ❤️
I had to trek down , and it took around 30 minutes to reach the Beach below but the effort was worth it and i felt blissful during the whole way.
It came the time to say *Good bye* to this beautiful island, and reach my hotel in Kuta.
The hotel was on the busy street full of various kind of shopping stores and some classy bars, lively street it was.
I hired scooter for 80,000IDR from the street and went to *Rock Bar* in Jimbaran.
This bar is a part of *Ayana Resort* and this whole resort is a prime example of class itself.
It came the time to drive back to my hotel and encounter the final night of the journey.
Sky garden is the best night club in Bali that bring you the top 100 DJ's in the world.
I had to catch my flight at 7AM so i came back from Sky Garden around 3AM and picked my luggage from hotel and went to the airport.
And finally, It was time to say good BYE to Bali.
- Hire scooter to roam around
- Book hotels via bookings.com or goibibo.com
