Visit the Tanah Lot Temple

This temple is among one of the most eminent cultural landmarks in Bali. The beautiful sunset views and the coastal line that sets the perfect backdrop for the Tanah Lot Temple makes it quite unique and gives it charm. The temple is basically an age old Hindu place of worship which is built beautifully on top of a rock projection, that is surrounded by the elegant sea waves and their everlasting tranquility. The site of the temple also hosts many other small places of worship along with various facilities for visitors such as shops, eateries and various cultural performances. The temple lies approximately 20 kilometers towards the north western side of Kuta.

The Tegallalang Rice Terraces

Imagine the beautiful sight of a lush green piece of land where rice plants laden heavy with harvest is beautifully landscaped to accommodate an ancient irrigation system known as a "subak". That is the blissful vista that awaits you at the Tegallalang Rice Terraces in Ubud. The Balinese history says that a man of clergy, Rsi Markandeya passed on the irrigation system and the land to the next generation which marked the beginning of this paddy field.
