Visiting the island of Bali may still be a dream or a goal for those who have never set foot on this island. In addition to having beautiful beaches and charming, Bali is also famous for its traditional culture preserved and continuously and properly maintained, as well as a strong Hindu society activity, because the majority of Balinese are Hindu.
The first time I visited Bali in February 2012 and, at that time because there was a few days working visit in Denpasar. Set off by using transaportasi air from one commercial airline. Initially lacking too keen to enjoy what I've been hearing about Bali, but after passing some places like Kuta, somehow I try to menyinggahinya alone, probably because the sea is directly facing the Indian Ocean and its location facing west so as to provide a Featuring panoramic views that appealed to me at the time. Before I could only be a good listener when there are colleagues who describe about Bali through his story that sounds exciting, this time I prove myself, like what is the real beauty and the exotic Bali!?
Enjoying a moment in Kuta who was then quite crowded by the tourists both from inside or outside the country, they poured into the sand and enjoy the hospitality crash of the waves, there is also a swim or surf, those who just walk alone down the lip Kuta beach is quite long. Tat dusk comes, the sun was as reluctant to continue to accompany the travelers together and went slowly leaving clear skies and gives the impression of orange tinge of the sea at the end of Kuta Beach, the Sun seems to be sinking, but the enthusiasm of the tourists was not reduced, but their waiting-time moments when the sun sinking in the western horizon or more nge-trend in said Sunset. Ternayata Kuta beach is indeed one of the best point to get this sunset moment. And no one if my time to yourself to stop there.
After enjoying the beauty of Kuta, I was looking for lodging that is located around the city of Denpasar. Then the next night I was trying to find data on the internet, to find out what are the areas that can be reached from Denpasar city for the next I visit, be advised initially not enthusiastic so I always ignore references. It turns out my next option is to try towards Uluwatu, Pecatu. At the time, I was escorted by a co-worker, Marvian name. So do not really know exactly how much it costs to be incurred to transport heading to Uluwatu. Previous Marvian took me to visit Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue (GWK) is a statue of Vishnu with a large size and according to the information of the statue is a sculpture that is high enough to reach the height of 180 meters if later merged with the Statue of Garuda was not far behind the statue of Vishnu was the entrance fee of Rp. 40.000/orang we enjoy the beauty of the pedestal which is dominated by limestone laid out in such a way that it becomes an interesting place to visit, besides there was a statue pedestal, here there is also a statue of peace which is located opposite the statue of Garuda, there is also such a stage show that is usually featuring Balinese culture such as dance Kecak, Barong and others. after that I invite heading to Uluwatu and he was keen to try it, we were off towards Uluwatu and not one did I choose to visit Uluwatu which apparently there are tourist areas, with the price of admission Rp. 15.000/orang we were required to wear cloth as a sign of respect Balinese temple which is used as a means of worship was located in Uluwatu. Along the entry path we are greeted by monkeys ready to chat with the visitors or tourists are not careful with the goods they carry. Pura Uluwatu is not only there, truly captivating natural beauty, where we can cast a glance toward the ocean as far as the eye can see infinity, while walking didataran cliff wall which is located right across from the Indian Ocean sea while occasionally distract the chasing waves crashing into the cliff walls of reef ., truly a magnificent sight.
Not quite satisfied if only to Uluwatu which can not be enjoyed sweeping waves and beaches, just invite me to go to the beach Marvian Suluban which apparently is not too far from Uluwatu. Suluban is not as extensive and not as busy Kuta beach, but no less beautiful with waves lure foreign tourists to surf. Not so far from the location Suluban, I was headed back to Padang-Padang beach, here was also not less interesting, where we will walk through a stone slit to be heading to the beach location, and what we find is like a flake of heaven , beaches with white sand and the sound waves that make anyone who visits will be interested to take a shower and sink in its beauty. Completion of Padang-Padang beach I did not want to miss the beach again that it is still a path to the beach the last few, and off we headed to the Dreamland beach which turned out to be beautiful, it's just that when we got to the beach Dreamland drizzling rain which forced us seeking shelter so we were not able to continue to enjoy its beauty to the fullest and continue the journey back to the inn to rest while planning set goals for the next day.
Rest one more day trips instead dinasku I spend just to have fun enjoying the atmosphere in Bali, this time Marvian mendaulatku to go to Tanah Lot. The journey to Tanah Lot is a pretty fun trip because the area is quite cool with views of the rice fields and villages that lie along the road to Tanah Lot. About 1 hour journey from Denpasar city, we arrived at the entrance to the tourist area of ??Tanah Lot, by paying Rp. 15.000/orang we can immediately enjoy the exoticism and beauty available there. Playing with the waves the main attraction, then try to catch crabs, komang-komang and holding snakes found in rock holes guarded by the keepers. Do not want to miss another chance and Marvian I walked to the left of the entrance before heading Watu Bolong is also one of the icon of Bali. I tried to enjoy the beauty and Marvian of Watu Bolong beach located underneath and climbed into it and perpetuate our way to carry Marvian kamrea yag pocket. No sooner were Watu Bolong, I was reminded of my trip back home tomorrow, so after enjoying a day trip, we were hurried back to the inn for bersitirahat and tidying up in preparation for me back home tomorrow with a story , impression and wonderful memories of my trip to Bali island course. One moment happen again sometime, visit had begun working again with my sandingkan impromptu tour. My Thanks to Almighty GOD who created this earth with all its beauty is in the sky, mountains, land, sea and underwater natural, so unrelenting I find and enjoy all of it in a way that I can and I have and all was found in the land of my birth INDONESIA.
