First Trip to Bali

Another amazing trip, went to Bali with my office mates (ulfa & mb ria) from 18-21 June 2011 (4D/3N), got promo ticket from Air Asia as usual :D for IDR 263.000 (round-trip). We already bought the ticket since last year, that was my first time to go to Bali. For this trip finally I found out how Couch Surfing will works for me & made me had a great trip. There was a woman named MG from Jakarta who sent me a message & told me about she will going to Bali on the same date with me & maybe we could be traveling buddies so I say yes & we set up meeting to talk about our itinerary. I also offered another CSers who want to join our trip so we share cost for a car & everything so I found Justyna from Polland who stayed at Phuket for few months to work. From Jakarta, we already booked for Water Sport & Car at Oz-Tourism (recommended). For this trip we used map, GPS & asking person to know the way.

Day 1 – Saturday, 18 June 2011
Air Asia Domestic at Terminal 3, since it’s holiday we trapped in traffic jam inside the airport. Luckily we already checked in by website so we don’t have to come very early to airport. We arrived around 2pm, our flight at 15:05 but got delayed til 15:40 :( the journey from JKT-DPS take 1 hour 40 minutes & in Bali has time different, 1 hour more faster than Jakarta. The weather was really nice, feel so excited with bali trip ^^ We arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport Bali around 7pm then go to Poppies Lane II by taxi (Bali Taxi-Blue Bird) IDR 23.000. We’re looking for the hotel first by looking our notes (from browsing) then we took Bali Dwipa Guest House,Gg. Benesari, Jl. Poppies II for IDR 150.000/night/3 peoples (without extra bed+fan+breakfast) if you want extra bed it will be IDR 170.000. For free breakfast they have toast bread/banana pancake/banana jaffle+hot tea/coffee. After put our stuff then we went to Warung Indonesia,Gg.Ronta,Jl.Poppies II for dinner, I had Mixed Rice(Rice+Vegetables+Side Dish)+Fresh tea IDR 13.000. The interior design is nice at Warung Indonesia. Hard Rock Cafe made me upset coz there was a live music but ballad song, feel drowsy zzZ zZZ. Luckily we didn’t have to pay 1st Drink Charge (IDR 60.000) coz we went there before 10pm, so we just ordered 1 Calamari (IDR 57.000) then out :D. Exploring Legian, Kuta, Kuta Square, Discovery Mall etc.

Day 2 – Sunday, 19 June 2011
Went to Kuta Beach in the morning then get ready for Water Sport at Tanjung Benoa with Ulfa. Mb Ria didn’t want to join so she met Justyna & went together to MG’s place near airport. Oz-Tourism cooperate with Virgo Dive & Water Sport Bali, Jl. Pratama No. 96 A Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua. Service was awesome! They picked up us at Bom Monument around 9am, arrived at 10am & when we want to make clear payment, the guy named Hendrik offered us for Glass Bottom Boat+Turtle Island & we only have to add IDR 60.000 coz we already ordered for Parasailing(IDR 65.000)+Flying Fish(130.000)+Snorkelling(IDR 90.000) = IDR 285.000 so we took all of that coz it’s so tempting us hihihiii ^^v Water Sport was great!! I love Parasailing & Flying Fish the best!! Turtle Island was nice, there is an old turtle (70 years old) & it was very big turtle, peoples were kind too, I do really love their service. We finished water sport at 12pm. Anyway for water sport you can get more cheaper price by contact Hendrik-Virgo Dive & Water Sport (081337480192)directly,he will give you special price :D like parasailing IDR 50.000, diving IDR 220.000, flying fish IDR 110.000 etc. I think I’ll contact him if I want to do some water sport again. Had lunch near Virgo, Padang Food (IDR 8.000) & bought Coconut Ice at Virgo (IDR 20.000). MG, Mb Ria & Justyna picked up us at Tj. Benoa around 1:30pm then we went to Garuda Wisnu Kencana(GWK)to see huge statue which planned to be highest statue in Bali about 150 meters but still haven’t finished yet, Dreamland Beach/ New Kuta Beach (inside Bali Pecatu Graha Complex,Kuta Golf Link Resort with beautiful water color, 10 suns coz it’s really hot & big wave, perfect for surfers), Padang-Padang Beach(Julia Roberts’s Beach at Eat, Pray & Love movie but for me nothing special about this beach ^^;), Uluwatu Temple with naughty monkeys (be careful with your glasses,earring, scrunchy) to catch beautiful Sunset :D, at Uluwatu you can’t enter if you wear short pants but no worries coz they provide fabric.  Went to Jimbaran to have our seafood dinner at Lia Cafe, Jl.Pemelisan Agung(corner). Taste was really good, big portion & cheaper than another restaurant ^^ we took 2 Set A >>Prawn,Squid,Fish & Shell (IDR 180.000/set)+Ice tea = IDR 365.000/5 @IDR 73.000 ^^b recommended! Finished with our dinner then we went to Krisna near airport to shopping or just looking at the price so we already knew the price would be. That night Justyna want to stay with us for 1 night & luckily she just have to pay IDR 25.000 for extra bed inc.breakfast, such best deal room at Bali :D

Day 3 – Tuesday, 20 June 2011
This day would be a looong journey, we went to Kintamani, from Kuta-Kintamani  about 2 hours. The view on the top was amazing plus Batur Lake, water color is really nice. From Batur Lake we went to Tampak Siring, I tried that Holy Water that trusted can make you stay young hihihi xDD Tampak Siring then Sukawati Market, late lunch near Sukawati Market, Padang food (IDR 12.000) then shopping about 1 hour til 4pm then catch sunset at Tanah Lot. Unfortunately we got traffic jam to Tanah Lot plus weather wasn’t really good to see sunset coz there was cloud which covered the sun. Went back & stop at Bom Monument then we have to part with Justyna :( that was amazing to have her in my trip to Bali, gonna miss her & hope to see her again someday. Go back to hotel, put our things then had dinner. Me at McD Kuta to meet Brandon(CS) from Texas,US while others at KFC, luckily we can meet up coz we just contact through email. Had a nice stroll with him exploring Kuta-Legian, had drinks at Green Box, Gg. Ronta for cheaper price. I had lychee flavored beer (IDR 12.000) & Strawberry vodka shot (IDR 15.000) taste was good, I love sweet things :D Felt good to hanging out with him on my last night in Bali, it was great & hope to meet him again someday ^^
