Day trip 1️⃣Area: 🚤trip to Nusa Penida (Island)
Level: EFFING EPICCC 💯💯💯💯
Company: Nusa Penida Journeys
💵: $85 per person.
WhatsApp message them:
Book early! Arsana is the head guy. He’ll help manage and plan your trip. English is great! Better to go with you and hubby since when you arrive, you both can be on a scooter together with a driver or plan to have two separate drivers (don’t rent and drive on your own, roads are crazy). THIS IS A EPIC DAY TRIP FOR REALZZZZ 💯💯💯please go 😭😭😭
Day trip 2️⃣Area: UBUD (oooh-boood)
Places IN THIS ORDER:
Bali Swing - get here early in the crack of dawned forever wait. Open 8am-5pm. $35 for package (hubby should not pay this amount).
Tegallalang Rice fields. ❗️note: There are two SWINGS here as well for 150,000 rupiah ($10!!!!!!) the higher one is the instagramable since you see the rice paddy in the background!!!!
Pura Tirta Empul - Balinese Hindu Water spring. You can get in the spring if you want to be blessed. 👙so bring a swimsuit just in case but it is mandatory to be covered up in a sarong which they will give you upon entry.
Notice: there are SO MANY things to see and do in Ubud. Monkey temple is there but I don’t think it’s necessary to go since they’re mean and you see them all over the island anyway. The market is great and they have cute bags!! 👛👜🎒🧳
Day trip 3️⃣Area: East Coast
Point of interests:
Lempuyang Temple - GATEWAY TO HEAVEN split photo!!!! And see the amazing Mount Agung from the back!
Tirta Gangga - super cute Koi pond temple. Tip: buy fish food upon entrance, get hubby camera ready, you throw fish food around you. You are now the fish whisperer! Cute koi fish photo!!! 🐠🐠🐠🐠
Ujung Water Palace - beautiful garden temple. Cute bridge photo and go up the stairs, super cool view and more photo ops.
In my experience, I hired a driver and specifically told them I want to see these 3 main places. I just found this on TripAdvisor and there’s a lot more you can see and I highly recommend it although I didn’t get to do some of the extra stuff. BOOK EARLY. Good for couple or group (depending how long you wanna stock around to take photos). 💵$40 per person NOT BAD for the experience! 💯there is also another view of a large rice paddy field on the way back home to your villa hub. Driver will know to stop over to take on the view. If you decide to book with this agency, convince them to pick you up early for the Lempuyang Temple (2.5hr drive from your location). Line for the photo is ridiculous.
❗️notice: price in agency excludes admission to the temples. It’s not a lot at all, always keep enough IDR (Indonesian rupiah) to buy snacks, drinks, souvenirs.
Happy exploring!!! 😘😘😘😘
