Laksmi Bali Agro Tourism

We looked at the luwak and coffee plantation at Laksmi Bali Agro Tourism. A guide met us at the parking lot and offered to tour us for free. The tour guide was very patient and answered all our questions about the plantation and the luwak, an Asian palm civet.

Kecak Dance at Uluwatu

The Kecak Dance is set in a breathtaking amphitheater overlooking the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean, the gorgeous sunset, and the striking silhouette of Pura Uluwatu on a cliff. As the sun sets, that is when the dancers begin their trance-like chanting.

Pura Tirta Empul

Seeing Pura Gunung Kawi had satiated our temple thirst, but we continued to Pura Tirta Empul out of curiosity. We walked around first as there were a lot of people in the complex and the pool area. The temple is built around a spring with clean, running water.

Pura Gunung Kawi

During our Bali trip, we went to Pura Gunung Kawi in Tampak Siring. I’ve seen pictures of it, but I didn’t think the surrounding structures would be so huge! The majestic shrines are eight meters high. They’re among Bali’s oldest and largest ancient monuments.

Barong and Keris Dance

The Barong and Keris Dance is comprised of five acts set to a musical overture. We learned that the dance depicts the eternal fight between good and evil. If you want to watch a cultural show in Bali, the Barong and Keris Dance should be on your list for sure!
