What stroke me the most in Bali were those crowds and lots of tourists. I did like Bali but I’m not a fan of too many people in one place. 😜
Luckilly we managed to find nice spots which were peacefull and quiet. Here they are:
- Taman Ayun Temple
It is a beautiful temple complex in a heart of Mengwi village – it is said to be a village but for me when I drove a Scooter felt like huge city with no traffic lights. 😉 It is situated in a nice garden with ponds. Almost no one there!! I think, counting me and my sister there were in total around 10 people. Admission fee if I remember correctly was around Rp. 3,000-4,000.
We got there after visiting Tanah lot as we wanted to see some quiet place. It took as around 30 minutes on a scooter. There are really nice views on the way.
The route from Tanah Lot to Taman Ayun Temple.
After trekking Mount Batur all we needed was a hot bath and our little dream came true – on our way back to Ubud our driver was so kind to take us there (though it wasn’t on our itinerary).
It was one of the most beautiful places in Bali I’ve seen. The view from the pool was breathtaking! https://instagram.com/p/BL-qLIJhyS1/
The entrance is Rp. 180,000.
3. The Blanco Renaissance Museum in Ubud
The only people in the museum were me and my sister. 😉 To tell you the truth, I like such crowds 😜
At the entrance of Blanco Museum there is a marble sculpture, 15 meters high.
Inside you can see Blanco’s amazing paintings, collages and illustrated poetry, together with lithographic artworks. At the rooftop nive view at Ubud area and also more sculptures.
Admission fee is Rp. 50,000.
