    Bali island is blessed with many tourists attractions and many of attractions are spread around the island. It is very obvious that lot of tourists will be travelling around to gather the memories around the famous places, considering narrow roads and lot of tourists vehicle create traffic jams.

    One of the best way to escape the traffic and parking problem is to hire a two wheeler and scoot around the island I rented a 200CC Automatic Scooter (Yamaha N-Max) in 2,00,000 IDR (around 900RS) for 2 days.
    You have to ride carefully as you never know what's ahead in the next corner , i was lucky to notice at right time Did you spot the same in video?


    I booked my resort at Sanur Beach, It took around 50 minutes from Sanur to the Tegenungan Watefall. I just followed the Google Map on my Indian Phone equipped with local SIM Card which I collected at Airport at just Rs.450. You can book online at best prize here:

    The roads in Bali can be tricky as you may see sudden potholes or animals on the road. It seems to be normal as driving in India is no different I was lucky to escape a BIG sinkhole caused by the landslide, if you can notice in the video.


    Most of the roads are very narrow till you reach near the Waterfall, i wouldn't suggest self driving car instead hire a scooter or a taxi for the full day (as taxi may cost hardly 2000 Rs for 10 hours). The parking had decent space as its mostly on street and I wasn't asked any charges for the scooter parking.

    The entry ticket was 15,000 IDR (70 Rs) per person accepted in cash. In Bali, most of the places only accept cash so make sure you carry enough Forex while travelling. There are plenty of shops and restaurants at the entry gate, so you don't have to worry about it. There are plenty of steps while going down and I would not recommend any old people to go down to the fall as steps are very steep. You can click some nice pictures while going down the steps for free.

    There is a Toilet too at the Waterfall, but not well maintained. If you prefer, you can go to a Cleaner Toilet offered by the shops (you may have to buy some item though).
    You can spend 2-3 hours easily at the waterfall by clicking the photos and enjoying the fresh water flowing through the waterfall.

    You can enjoy a dip but its not allowed to go under the waterfall as its dangerous.
    Overall its a nice attraction near the Ubud city center worth of half day trip I hope you have a nice trip to Bali

    Stay tuned for next episode

    Part 2: Garuda Park and Uluwattu Temple



    It takes around 30 minutes from Garuda park to the Uluwattu temple. You should be careful to select the route through Toll Road in Bali. It has different lane for 2 and 4 Wheeler and it doesn't accept cash as you have to pay by the smart card. I was lucky as a local rider swiped for me when he observed that I was struck at the Toll Booth


    The parking ticket cost around 5000 IDR (20 INR) and entry ticket is around 6000 IDR (around 300 INR). You will get a free drink at the restaurant near the main entry gate. The Garuda park has three main statues, 2 are completed whereas third one is under construction till date.

    After spending almost 1-2 hour, I moved to the next destination for today's menu - Uluwattu Temple.

    It took me other 30-40 minutes to reach there as the roads were narrow and some tourist traffic blocking the way as usual The parking was around 2000 IDR with entry ticket of 30000 IDR (150 INR). The view from the temple is amazing with sea waves crashing against the land.

    The main attraction at Uluwattu temple is Kecak Dance, which has entry fee of other 20000 IDR. Make sure you gather near the place for the Kecak Dance at 5PM to buy the ticket first as the dance starts at 6PM and seats will be filled very quickly.

    The Kecak dance is a performance based on Ramayana and involves main scenes like Devi Sita Kidnap, White Monkey Hanuman taking the ring to Devi Sita and later on the final battle between Lord Rama and Ravan. The most interesting part about the play is background music, as no instruments are being used therefore around 20-30 men keep chanting 'kecak-keack.
    I hope you have a nice time in Bali
