Unexpected i went to Bali again twice within one year in 2008. Jan 2008 with family and July 2008 with friends...Of course i found the differences between these 2 visits.I think it was more 'crazy ' , fun and free while with friends compared to with family..Well with family i have to care more cares on the kids.More luggages, more money and also the accommodation must be comfortable for them.
For this visit, there were 5 of us. We went to Wong Solo Restaurant looked for indonesian cuisine. This restaurant is so popular with chicken grilled, and had our dinner here.
The place was so cosy. It was located in Kuta center. Some say that the restaurants is belongs to the man who has 4 wives and he claims that because of all the wives, he becomes very successful...So some of the menu have special name like 'ayam goreng madu', polygamy drink.
We spent one nite in Kuta on the first day of arrival..We stayed in Bakung Sari Hotel. It is a budget hotel which just costs us USD22. The hotel just so, so. Not recommended to friends and suits to back packers. I just booked thru internet without get more information from others. Well value for the money lah..We spent half of the nite exploring Kuta and Legian for shopping.
Tiring after 3 hours flight and many hours shopping, we went back to the hotel and preparing for the tomorrow's itinerary
On the next day, our 'supirs' were ready to do the Bali Tours and waiting for us to check out from the hotel quite early in the morning. We started our tour at 10.30am and heading to Tanah Lot. My friends bought many souvenirs here because it offered with the reasonable price. But still bargaining is the important tips.
After taking pictures and doing some shopping here, we heading to Kintamani for our lunch.The weather was so great.We could see the mountain and the lake.We took our luch at the gazebo and facing to the active volcano. What a view. So cold here..I love the banana with ice cream here.One tip, just be ware of the sellers.
After spending almost two and half hours here, we rushed to the hotel, of course Tegal Sari Accommodation. I missed the welcoming drinks here..Teh es jeruk..walla...But my room was not same as we had before..Due to fully booked, we only had a chance to stay in superior room..
And yet, the room still made me happy..
Before we went back to Kuala Lumpur, we decided to go to Jimbaran to look at the sunset. The view is awesome.We didnt have much time to have our dinner here and hoping to do it during our next visit.INSYALLAH..
