Bali being an exotic and tropical Island paradise has an abundance of hidden treasure to offer you on your luxury holiday.
That being said, a Bali tour guide is a necessity to capture the full experience. After all, “luxury holiday” implies relaxing and carefree. This means you should not have to worry about details but instead, kick back and enjoy the ride.
In other words, whether you choose to explore with your Bali Tour Guide by land, air, or sea we can take you there.
To elaborate, Bali has activities and attractions for every interest covering all plateaus, depths, and heights.
The islands of Indonesia are as ancient as the volcanos that still remain active on them. The history is astounding with temples dating back over 1000 years.
In addition, Bali is home to a unique culture offering insight into a spiritual world like no other on earth. For instance, they exhibit their beliefs through different types of dance and festivals.
The Top Things to do in Bali, Explore Ancient Temples and Attend Festivals
One of the most popular things to do in Bali is to explore the arts and discover the culture. For example, our Explorer package offers an option to tour Batu Belig Beach.
There are a variety of temples to see, not only on this beach, the island is home to several Hindu Temples.
Each temple has a life of its own, here are a few examples.
- Masceti Temple
- Tanah Lot
- Pura Tirta Empul
Masceti temple is one of Bali’s nine directional temples and is supposed to guard the island from evil sea spirits.
The temple is located on the sacred beach of Masceti on the island’s east coast. It’s a lesser known temple and barely visited by tourists.
Second is Tanah Lot, a rock formation and home to the temple Pura Tanah Lot (“Tanah Lot temple”). The temple is the work of a traveler from the 16th-century who claimed the rock to be a holy place to worship sea gods.
Also, Tanah Lot is 1 of 7 sea temples along the coast. These temples were all built within eyesight of each other to form a chain. Next, the Pura Tirta Empul is a water temple compound with a bathing structure, famous for its holy spring water.
Tirta Empul Temple was founded around a large water spring in 962 A.D. and contains 2 pools with 30 showers. Locals visit frequently for soul purification.
Attention: Tirta Empul can be very very touristy. If this is NOT your interest in being surrounded by tourists, you may want to contact us. We found a spot nearby Ubud which serves the same purpose as Tirta Empul does, however, you won’t find any tourists in our secret spot. It’s truly a place where locals go for their soul purification and a place where they welcome foreigners as well.
