After breakfast, your guide will pick you up and we will visit the places on the fantastic route of Come2Indonesia.

Taman Ayun Temple

The first site will be the Taman Ayun Temple (it was founded in the 17th century), located in the Mengwi Village. Until 1891, it was the seat of a powerful man who dates back to the Gelgel Dynasty, which is surrounded by a moat that looks like a sanctuary landscaped, which explains the term taman, or garden. This Bali temple is a penyawangan or place to worship other sacred sites.

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

From Taman Ayun, the compass heads towards Jatiluwih, where without a doubt we will admire and enjoy a beautiful view of rice terraces that cover the entire landscape of South Bali. The name of Jatiluwih consists of two words, Jati which means truly and Luwih which means beautiful, good, special. Without a doubt, this place not only has a beautiful name but that beauty is really reflected in its landscape.

Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

From Jatiluwih, we will go to Bedugul where we will visit the Ulun Danu Bratan Temple. The famous temple that stands in a small development located on the shore of Lake Beratan and has the beautiful landscape with the lake and the mountain as a backdrop. It is without a doubt one of the most photogenic temples in all of Indonesia. This Bali temple is a dedication to Dewi Danu, goddess of waters.

Pura Luhur Batukaru

To conclude the day, we will explore Pura Luhur Batukaru or Batukaru Temple. The temple is one of the six directional Bali temples and the people believe that it protects the island and its people from evil spirits. Pura Luhur Batukaru protects Bali from the West and was originally built in the 11th century.

Pura Luhur Batukaru is one of Bali’s biggest Hindu temples, but because it is off the main tourist trail, sees fewer visitors than many of the other temples. Its peaceful setting amid rain forest at the foot of Mount Batukaru enhances its stunning Balinese architecture. We return to the hotel at the end of the visit.

Today we will live a day where we will share with the Balinese their authentic lifestyle.

At 08.00 AM, we pick you up at your hotel and start our trip to Tunjuk Village in Tabanan regency. Upon arrival you will be welcomed with open arms with warm smiles from the locals you meet on the way. You will gather in the outer courtyard of the village temple and meet your local guides.

Village life

Throughout the walk you will meet people from the village involved in tasks that occupy them day in and day out. You can choose to observe or actually participate to get an even better understanding of village life. The powerful water buffalo is still used to pull the plow through the muddy paddies to prepare the earth for planting. Maybe you would like to ride on one of these patient creatures. Or perhaps you wish to help with the planting or harvesting, depending upon the time of year.

When you complete the paddy tour, you will follow your guide on a path through lush gardens where villagers are engaged in everyday tasks. There are women pounding rice with heavy mallets to remove the hulls. Another group is making offerings, and one woman bakes lak-lak, the delicious Balinese sweet cakes drizzled with palm sugar syrup.

You will also learn about the exotic herbs and spices used in ceremonial and everyday Balinese dishes and are encouraged to actively help prepare the Food that will then be enjoyed. After lunch we leave Tunjuk Village and continue our trip to visit Tanah Lot Temple.

Sunset at Tanah Lot Temple

Tanah Lot Temple is built on a rock formation and has been part of Balinese mythology for centuries. This Bali temple owns a magnificent view in particular at the sunset time where the sun slows down on the horizon.

Another day of full day tour!

Tegallalang Rice Terrace

After breakfast, we start the tour with the Tegallalang rice terraces in Ubud. The terrace is also famous for its beautiful rice field scenes involving the subak (traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system), which according to history was used since 8th century. Tegallalang forms the three most spectacular tiered landscapes. The Tegallalang rice terraces alone offer a panoramic perspective that stretches before you and in the distance on the slopes of the valley. Good time to take some photos and enjoy the views!

Tirta Empul

Moving on, we go to Tirta Empul, a legendary setting for a traditional story about good versus evil. The Tirta Empul spring feeds several purification baths, pools and fish ponds that surround the outer perimeter, which flow into the Tukad Pakerisan River.


Afterwards, we continue to Penglipuran. It is a village that succeeded in preserving its 75-hectare bamboo forest located in the northern part of the village. Members of this village have a strong commitment to the system of “ayahan desa”. It is a philosophy committed to respecting the land on which the village stands.

Cepung Waterfall

To conclude the day, we stop by at  Tukad Cepung Waterfall. Well-guarded by the circular cliffs, this waterfall is difficult to locate for the first time visitor. The circular cliffs give you the feeling of being in a cave, while the open sky right from where the waterfall emerges, gives you the most enchanting view. The sunlight falls on the glistering waterfall creating a rainbow, which feels as though it is projected right up to you. If you have never seen water flowing from the sky, then this would be your chance! After spending your time there, we go back to your hotel.

You will know the process of making salt by the traditional method.

Goa Lawah

We continue our journey on the east coast to reach Goa Lawah, a cave “guarded” by thousands of bats where their bodies are concentrated in so little space that the surface of the upper wall seems to be an irregular muddy matter. Goa Lawah is a sacred Bali temple and many altars that protect its entrance surround the temple.

Tenganan Village

Afterward, We continue our trip to the Tenganan Village, the most famous town of Bali. Within its fortifications, the town is arranged in parallel rows along the extensive main road paved with cobblestones. In Tenganan, women still weave the famous kamben geringsing, or “burning cloth,” which has the virtue of immunizing the wearer against the devil. We will closely observe what they do in their daily lives, in a traditional lifestyle.

Tirta Gangga

Our Route of the Eastern Coast in the March ends with the visit of Tirta Gangga. The site is a refuge with water surrounds the area, and the set of pools decorated with an unusual statuary. With its isolation and a panoramic view of the surrounding rice fields, Tirta Gangga is a wonderful place. After this day where you will have known the authentic Bali, we will take you back to your hotel.
