We reached at Bali airport at night from Kuala Lumpur.

Day 1, we started our day from Ubud. We first went to the hottest Instagram destination of Bali- the Bali swing.

There are lot of swings available in Ubud, we went to the famous Aloha swing.It is one of the best swing in Tegallalang area with beautiful rice paddy view. They also provide professional photographer who take very good pictures. I would recommend going early in the morning as it get too crowded in afternoon.

You will see a lot of shopping options outside this area at exit side. This is one of the best place to purchase souvenirs. Things are generally cheap here but they do lot of bargaining.

After that we went to see Taman Ayun Temple. It is a royal temple of Mengwi Empire and is a beautiful representation of the architecture of Bali.

The first half of the trek was easy but second half was bit difficult. When we reached at the top, it was cloudy. We were not able to see the mountain properly but the whole experience was amazing. I would highly recommend to go for this trek.

On the way back, we went to see the famous waterfall of Bali-the Tukad Cepung waterfall. It is located outside ubud and is one of the most beautiful waterfall of Bali. It took almost 15 mins to reach down to waterfall and it is family friendly. You can get pretty close to the waterfall and get some amazing pictures.
