En route to Menjangan Island

On the road to Menjangan Island

Good morning, Bali! Waking up in this earthly paradise adds a special sweetness to the day. After getting ready, we're all set to embark on our island exploration. Loading our backpacks into the minivan, we head north towards our ultimate destination, the island of Menjangan. But first, we have some must-see stops along the way.

Our journey kicks off with a visit to the iconic Tanah Lot, a stunning Hindu temple perched on an islet just off Bali's southeast coast. Built in the 16th century, this temple pays homage to the guardian spirits of the sea and is shrouded in myths of sea serpents. During high tide, the temple appears almost submerged, but during low tide, we can stroll to it with minimal splashing.

Next on our itinerary is a visit to the breathtaking Belimbing rice fields, a true marvel of nature! After a satisfying meal, we continue our journey until we reach our own slice of paradise: the island of Menjangan.

Menjangan: paradise on earth

Snorkelling and relaxation

Time to delve into another realm of Indonesia: the underwater world. The island of Menjangan, a true paradise on earth, is renowned for its vibrant marine life teeming beneath the waves. Interestingly, the name "Menjangan" stems from the Javanese language, meaning deer. Yes, besides the kaleidoscope of colourful fish, we may also catch sight of the wild deer that roam the island, sometimes appearing along the shoreline. It's all about patience, and we have plenty as we spend the day snorkeling and enjoying boat excursions. As the sun sets, we eagerly await the magical moment on the beach, perhaps accompanied by the graceful deer. Could there be a more perfect conclusion to yet another captivating day in Indonesia?

Towards Ubud

Rice fields and relaxation

Unfortunately, it's time to bid farewell to this enchanting corner of paradise. But fret not, as our next destination promises to be equally captivating. Today, we journey to Ubud, a picturesque town nestled among the gentle slopes leading to Bali's central mountains. Surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and iconic rice terraces, Ubud is a hub of historical and artistic significance, embodying Bali's ancient culture.

Before reaching Ubud, we have the option to pause for a couple of "journey break" stops, perhaps exploring local markets or marveling at the renowned Jatiluwih rice fields. The choice is ours: proceed directly or savour the journey with a stop?

In the evening, Ubud offers a plethora of culinary delights, as it is hailed as the culinary capital of Bali. A special challenge awaits: who among us can uncover the finest traditional Balinese cuisine restaurant? (Coordinator excluded, of course!)

Traditional Bali

Rice fields and an authentic cooking class!

Mystical, special, and utterly unique—these words perfectly encapsulate the essence of Sideman, a charming Balinese town. Nestled amidst rice fields and verdant foliage, Sideman exudes a tranquil atmosphere unlike any other on the island, making it one of Bali's most enchanting and magical areas.

During our visit, we'll have the privilege of stepping into a local home to witness traditional weaving techniques firsthand. We'll meander through the serene rice fields, immersing ourselves in the unhurried rhythm of daily life. Exploring exotic plantations, we'll uncover the intricacies of the exclusive Subak irrigation system.

Let's explore Ubud

Temples and the Monkey Forest

Today, we're set to explore the city of Ubud, a treasure trove of temples and cultural wonders. Our itinerary begins with a visit to Pura Taman Saraswati, followed by a tour of the majestic Puri Saren Palace. For nature enthusiasts, options abound: a stroll through the Botanical Garden or along the scenic Campuhan Ridge, offering panoramic views of the valley. Alternatively, we can journey to the Tirta Empul temple just outside Ubud, engaging in a purification ritual to connect with our inner spirituality.

No visit to Ubud is complete without a stop at the iconic Monkey Forest, where mischievous monkeys reign supreme. As we attempt to forge friendships with these playful creatures, let's remain vigilant—monkeys are known for their thievery, and we may find ourselves bartering for our belongings in exchange for treats!

As evening approaches, we'll meander through the bustling market, browsing local handicrafts and contemplating souvenir purchases. Is it time to bring home a piece of Ubud's charm?
