Day 2 activity

Tanah Lot - Jatiluwih - Ulun Danu

Tanah Lot

We started our day at Tanah Lot temple. Tanah Lot is less crowded in the morning therefore our driver suggested us to start at Tanah Lot. Many usually visit this place for its magnificent sunset view. Since we already enjoyed beautiful sunset at Uluwatu yesterday, we decided to visit Tanah Lot in the morning instead. It's about an hour long drive from Kuta.   

Tanah Lot is a rock formation off from Bali island which Pura Tanah Lot (Tanah Lot Temple) sits on it. It was high tide when we were there so we could not visit the main temple. It's best to visit there at low tide. The wave there can be very dangerous so please be careful with your kids. Check Tana Lot tide chart from here.  

This place is always packed with tourists and we need to pay Rp30,000 per pax to enter this area. Visitors have to go through a street which full of Balinese souvenir shops before reaching the temple. This kind of design is very common in Bali. You will notice that in Bali airport and Tirta Empul water temple.

rice terrace

We proceeded to Jatiluwih rice terrace after Tanah Lot. This place is scenic! Jatiluwih is less crowded and commercialized than Tegalalang. We are free to walk around, get closer to the terrace and the small hut. We paid Rp20,000/pax to get into this area. 

Our driver brought us to have lunch at Pacung Indah restaurant (Jalan Raya Bedugul, Desa Pacung Baturiti) on the way to Ulundanu. Try to sit outdoor. It's quite stuffy inside. You can enjoy great view if you sit outside. 

This restaurant overlook green rice terrace. They serve both ala-carte and buffet. We choose to eat buffet at Rp80,000 per person. Their buffet offers many different choices such as fried noodle, fried rice, satay, spring roll, fish, tofu, rice pudding dessert and etc. I love their satay most! Total bill Rp279,000 included 2 fruit juices and buffet for 2.

Ulun Danu temple

It was a rainy afternoon when we visited Ulun Danu temple. My picture didn't come out as what I expected. It's better to visit this place in the morning as it's usually clearer sky. Ulun Danu temple is located beside Lake Bratan at Bedugul. It opens daily from 7am to 5pm. This is probably the most famous and most photographed temple in Bali after Tanah Lot temple. 

If you come from Kuta to this place, it's gonna be a long drive. Most people will make a stop at Jatiluwih rice terrace which takes an hour to reach. Entrance ticket Rp30,000 per pax. 

Visitor can rent a wooden boat (sampan) to enjoy the view. We paid Rp9500 for a 30 mins ride with boatman.
