One question my friends and other people who knew about my trip in Bali was, How did you see those places in just 4 or 5 days? Well my answer was simple, if you want something you’ll make sure to do it no matter how tiring it is and no matter how hectic it will be, just go for it. It may just be short trip but nonetheless everything was squeezed in to our schedule up to the last minute, literally it was worth it til the last day of our trip. So one of our scheduled tour was called Singaraja Trip and we are able to visit 5 spots during this tour namely Aling Aling waterfalls, Wanagiri Hidden Hills, Bali Handara Gate, Ulundanu Temple and Bratan Lake.
From our hotel we were pick-up by our driver/guide and we drove to our first destination which was Ulundanu Temple and Bratan Lake, of course I was so amazed how the place was well-maintained and that’s why tourist really go here to see the beautiful scenery and at the same time relax. Take some time to roam around the place and appreciate the beauty of Bratan Lake and at the same time find the best spot and appreciate the Ulundanu Temple at the lake. See the beautiful mountains at the backdrop and if you want some more adventure then maybe try some activities to enjoy the lake as well.
After some time we head to our next stop which was Aling Aling waterfalls, of course we are ready to swim but we didn’t expect that we need to hike just to see this beautiful place and at the same time be ready to jump… yes jump by the cliffs and falls if you are brave enough (unlike me haha) and appreciate this tour even more. There are three stages for your jump and it will really challenge yourself how brave you are and where your adrenaline rush will take you. And after seeing the 3 falls (which I thought that was it already) we had quite walk after swimming by the falls, and we were brought to the real Aling Aling Waterfalls and it was beautiful. I am really a nature lover simply because I live in the city and everyday I just see buildings, malls, etc., and every time I get to travel to places which includes this kind of tours I am just amazed. So after appreciating the waterfalls we hike up again going to the parking lot and from feeling fresh and cold, we were just sweating after that hike up, but it was worth it.
After this we went to Wanagiri Hidden Hills, and if you love taking beautiful photos and at the same time test your adrenaline you can spend some time here and ride the swing, take some photos at there cliff hanging photo spots. It was really beautiful because beneath you is the view of Bratan Lake so your fear will change into amazement.
And for the last part of this trip we headed to Bali Handara Gate and take the best photo we can have while we are enjoying the view. It was again a full-packed day and it was tiring but seeing those beautiful places and having that experience will leave you amazed and feel so accomplished upon your return to your hotel to relax for the night. Would I recommend this tour? Yes, definitely. It was an experience any tourist should have when you visit Bali. I don’t know, but if you’ll ask me was Bali beautiful and will it keep you coming back for more? Yes, for sure because it has a lot to offer, the people are friendly, the budget ain’t gonna hurt your pocket and at the same time you get to feel the culture and appreciate the beauty of God’s wonderful creation. How I love Bali, Indonesia and I can’t wait to go back and explore it more. MARKE MY WORD.
