Surfing at Kuta

I can say that surfing is one of the most favorable activity to do at Kuta, and my fave too. However after several times of trying I still can not make it..hehe...

If you like to try surfing you don't need to worry even if you don't know how to do it. There're many surfing school at Kuta, Bali where you can hire surfing teacher to teach and guide you on how to surf. They also provide you with complete surfing stuff.

The Tattoo Artist

Tattoo is pretty common in Bali. You can find tattoo artist/maker in almost every area. The guy in this picture is one of the tattoo maker in Kintamani, Bali. When I went there in 2006, when tourist visit to Bali was very low. At that time you could get two temporary tattoo with less then a dollor (USD). I'm not sure how much it cost rigth now. However, you can alway negotiate/bargain with Bali people.
Oh ya, the background of this picture is Batur Mountain with is located near Batur Lake in Kintamani, Bali.

Bratan Lake and The Temple

Bali has an almost complete nature in my opinion. It makes this island became very interesting. It has beaches, rivers, mountain and lake. This is one of a very exotic lake in Bali, its name is Bratan Lake. The lake is located in front of Ulundanu Temple area., at Bedugul, Bali. There're several temple built on the lake. The wheather at Bratan Lake tend to be cloudy and cool. Everyday the lake area covers by the haze. Such a beautiful scenery for me.

Inside Goa Gajah

Have you ever been to Goa Gajah, Bali? If no, then you should try. Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) is located in a village not far away from Ubud, named Bedulu. The area of the cave is located in a steep valley, makes it looks so beautiful from above it. The area is quite big with a park which looks more like a forest, adorned with green algae provides the visitor a genuine natural atmosphere. The picture above showing the inside part of the cave. If you go deeper you may see some sculptures which are holy for Hindu people. There're also small room for meditation. If you're a type of person who likes meditation, you may want to try this place :)
