Water Places and Volcanoes of Eastern Bali, Candi Dasa Indonesia, Bali
Visit the highlights of Eastern Bali on this full day tour, starting at Tenganan Village, an ancient village famed for maintaining its unique Bali Aga (Pre-Hindu) culture and customs. The unique architecture, traditional dress and ceremonies provide an insight into how Bali originally was before Hinduism succeeded.
After exploring the village head to Taman Ujung Water Palace. Though damaged by both earthquakes and eruptions, the royal palace has been well restored to its original glory.
From here head inland to take lunch at the Bali Asli restaurant, which is well known for its traditional Balinese cuisine, incredible views over Mount Agung volcano and it’s pineapple beer! Finally you will have a chance to see the Titra Gangga Water Palace, where you can admire maze of pools and fountains, and cool off with a quick dip in one of its many pools.
The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
