Indo Vacay Part 1- Bali

Mora is home! So last week, I went on a vacation in Indonesia! And today, I'd love to share my 6 days journey in Bali and Bandung, Indonesia :D


Departed from KLIA to Denpasar Bali through Malindo Air. Our flight was delayed, so instead of arriving at 12.30 pm, we touched down at Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali at 2.30 pm. All 23 of us was then greeted by Pak Made who was our tour guide in Bali. We hopped onto the bus and went for a late lunch at a grill restaurant called Budesa.

Once we've done eating, we went to perform solat Asar and Zohor jamak at a very unique pusat ibadah in Bali. Bali is the only province in Indonesia where majority of the people (96%) is Hindu and only a small minority (2%) of Muslims. Therefore, they place a temple, a mosque and a church in the same compound, exactly neighboring each other. The rest of the Musolla (that we went to) in Bali was all located inside of Halal restaurants.

Alright, then we continued our journey to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park where we watched a live theater performance of the Traditional Hindu Myth. We had our buffet dinner at the GWK Cultural Park restaurant while entertained by an acoustic band. Checked in at the Kuta Central Park Hotel and sleep.

After a very picky breakfast at the hotel, the tour guide brought us to Kedai Agung Oleh-Oleh Khas Bali, a gold and silver store, and Galuh Batik Store. The time and weather in Bali is exactly the same as in Malaysia, so it was boiling HOT. Once we've done shopping, we went through a long and terrifying journey all the way up to Gunung Berapi Kintamani. It took us 3 hours just to get there. We had a buffet lunch at a Halal Restaurant, performed solat, took a lot of pictures of the volcano, sight-seeing and managed to survive from a bunch of coerce street sellers (aka Zombies).

Then, we were brought to see the Rice Terrace which was basically paddy field grown on the hillside. Later on, we went all the way down again (another 3 hours) and arrived at Hawaii (another mall) to shop. That night, we had our Seafood and BBQ dinner on the famous Bali Beach. We watched the gorgeous sunset and took lots of photos. As soon as we reached our hotel, my grandmother, my mum and I went to the Spa in our hotel. Had myself a relaxing foot massage and day 2 was over.

DAY 3 - Bali

So after checking out of our hotel, the tour bus brought us sight-seeing in Bali. We saw the location of "Bom Bali", the nightclub which was bombed and now is Ground Zero. The incident killed more than 50 Aussies and injured either permanently or temporarily the remaining people inside the club the night of the tragedy. Then, Pak Made brought us to the Kuta Beach, Beachwalk and Krisna to shop (again). Had a Sunda lunch at Pawon Pasundan before being sent off at the airport.

Said our thanks and good byes to the Pak Made and Bali. At 3.30 pm, we depart to Bandung through Lion Air.

Off to Bandung!

Alright, it literally took me 3 hours to write this post. Hahaha. So that's it for now. I will continue to update the rest of my vacay in Bandung when I have the time and energy and the urge to do so.

Enjoy :D Adios!
P/s Sorry for the long post :S
