Beguiling Bali

In my previous post, many of you guessed correctly, I did have a short holiday in Bali recently..
I shall posts about some of the food that I have soon, but for now, I'll share some pictures I took while in Bali...

Candi Kuning and Lake Batur.. Very scenic place; cooling weather. this place is definitely one of my faves in Bali..Lovely postcard-ish pictures too :)

Pura Taman Ayun was also pretty huge and beautiful too...
We're not allowed to the inner sanctuary, hence, only took photos from outside... The merus (pagoda lookalike) that we noticed, was built according to ascending height..
Frangipanni trees with merus as backdrop
Pura Taman Ayun is surrounded by moat....

The very famous Tanah Lot..
At the entrance leading to Pura Tanah Lot...
Pura Tanah lot during hightide.You can walk over to the temple during lowtide (when the sea recedes)
The breathtaking cliff facing the right side of Pura Tanah Lot
We could see humongous waves hitting the cliffs on the left of the temple..
And of course, the obligatory shot of Tanah Lot during sunset..hehe

To be continued.......

csb, just stay away from overly crowded places full of tourists, should be ok. i went on my own, not wth tour..cost me about RM1k all in (flight, hotel, food, souveniers, transport and entrance fee for temples and dance)..email me if you guys need detailed info ok?

Bali... Was just thinking that I need a vacation myself. Just to chill out, not much sightseeing. Any idea when's the best time to go though, i.e. less tourists? I'm thinking of end of this year or early next year (my schedule too busy for anything earlier than this, sobs).

Your post (and the pics, especially) just makes me wanna go even more la...

Bali come to me... LOL
