We chose Bali for our first trip together as a couple, and it was memorable. We have booked the trip through a travel app and to say honestly we are very happy that we had chosen the right travels. We have been provided with a separate car, driver and the tour guide for the whole 4 days trip. We have started from Hyderabad to the Indonesia Island Bali with a layover in Kuala Lumpur Airport. It took 12 hours to reach the destination. While we are almost entering into Bali airspace you can see black volcanic mountains that are hiding behind the scoops of clouds. And also you can see the Garuda statue while landing which is situated at the center of the Island.
The Ngurah Rai International Airport terminals themselves resemble the cultural architecture of Bali. Once landed, we took a local sim in the airport itself and we were greeted by our tour guide Samarthan in his white shirt and white Kamen(which is similar to Indian Dhoti) holding the placard with our names on it and our driver Bhaghose with a flower print shirt.
We reached to the one part of the city through the thin lines of road and two-wheelers swarming the small city of Denpasar. We checked into our hotel and took rest the whole evening by enjoying the Balinese cuisine for dinner.
Next day we got ready by 8 AM and started our trip by visiting the Barong dance, with a lot number of audience from west , and to be truthful not understanding a single thing in the dance even each play was described on the pamphlet ,the play is about the Mahabharata character Sahadeva , Lord Shiva and Demon which we do not find the story in our version of Mahabharata . The entire show lasted for around 30 to 40 mins in an open amphitheater. Once done, we made our way to YANA ART gallery, with mind-blowing wooden work, I was ecstatic to watch the beauty of many items that got moulded out from a hard oaks and still looks like they are alive and breathing(of course we couldn't afford anything there except the keychains and fridge magnets which we carried as souvenirs).
