Bali: Tanah Lot

Approximately 1 week before my departure to Bali, I panic-ly searched for a Bali personal driver. After going through some of the personal driver website and sent 3 emails to inquire about the prices. I finally chose Mr Made Piring. The reason I chose him was because he gave suggestions on my itinerary. I didn't have much time to plan my Bali trip as I was quite busy during that period. Furthermore, Boy boy wanted a relaxing trip and I wanted a sight seeing trip. So I have divide the time to 50% sight seeing and 50% free and easy, which was quite challenging for a 4 days 3 nights trip.

After many emails with Mr Made for the next 3 days, finally I met him in Bali airport. He greeted us with a big smile (which was his signature smile btw) and a warm welcome. He speaks very good English and very friendly.

It was 4pm by the time we reached Tanah Lot. We chose a restaurant to have our very late lunch. I chose Nasi Campur while Boy boy chose Nasi Goreng.



Both tasted funny to me. Maybe I am not into Balinese food. But nevertheless, it did fill up my hunger.

Entrance to the Tanah Lot. Have to pay a small entrance fee.

It is located beside the sea.

Very strong wind and wave.

Waiting for the sun to set.

More posey photo.

The Tanah Lot Temple, which is located on top of the sea.

Pose with the temple.

Towards 6pm, there are a lot of people gathered to see the sunset. We chose a place high up and waited for the sunset. To my disappointment, the sun set behind the clouds, and not at the sea borderline. Hm..... a bit sad.

After the sun set completely, we left the place and Mr Made sent us to our hotel in Ubud. Will write about our hotel, Y Resort later.

Hi Siew Mun,

So u do not need a driver for the two other day?

IDR400,000 includes petrol and everything?

The other 2 day was free and easy at Kuta, so we doesnt need a driver.

IDR400,000 for 8 hours, include petrol but not the entrance fees to the places.
