Bali Trip 2011 - Part 4

This is the final post on our Bali vacation. I will start by first displaying some pictures of the hotel we stayed in.


Kuan Yin









Kuta Beach
This beach is famous as a sunset beach in Bali. It wasn't very clean when we arrived. There were some trashes.
















Bebek - Deep Fried Duck
One of Bali's famous dish is their deep fried duck. Trust me, it was good. But I still prefer the roast duck prepared by our local Chinese hawkers.







The restaurant was located in a village. This is just a few meters from where our table was.


A funeral procession.
Mengwi
The Royal Temple of Mengwi is one of the most important temples in Bali. Built in 1634 by a King of the Mengwi dynasty, this impressive complex stands on an island in a river, its inner temple surrounded by a moat. Its Balinese name Pura Taman Ayun literally means ‘Garden Temple in the Water’.













Tanah Lot
This was our final destination. Perhaps the most famous place in Bali. This temple is dedicated to Siva. The water level rises turning the temple into an island during high tide. During such time, the temple can only be accessed by boat.




The great Nirarta.











Holy water coming from natural sources. Although the temple is surrounded by sea , this is fresh water.




Sunset







We left the next morning. It was time to say goodbye to our good tour guides. For those of you who wish to take taxi in Bali, only use BlueBird. It is said to be the most reliable one.
