Bali Trip – Day 1

This is it! The first post of my Bali trip review. My friends and I went there for 4 days as our graduation trip. Hopefully this post and the next 3 other posts can be useful for those of you who are interested to go to the amazing island of Bali!! We hired a driver from a local travel company to guide us around for 3 days. I’ll leave you the details later at the end of this post.

First meal of the trip: Balinese Suckling Pig

Arrived in Bali at noon with half-full stomach (had a meal in flight) but we still headed for lunch anyway! Honestly it wasn’t what I really expected. I forgot where it was actually located but it was a small local eating house and I personally doubted the hygiene. The food itself was okay. I liked the crispy pig skin actually :p and it was really cheap. I didn’t have stomachache or whatsoever afterwards so it was fine! Teehee.

Putri Ayu Cottages, Ubud


After lunch, we checked in to our hotel to stay for a night. I loved the bed! Thanks to the mosquito net haha. It looks so romantic and when I woke up the next morning I almost felt like a princess :p

Kintamani

Batur Volcano 
 Beautiful!! It was kinda chilly up there. The guide said that every year the locals would bring offerings to the volcano so it won’t errupt again. The last eruption was in the year of 2000.

Dewi Agriculture

Asian Palm Civet aka Luwak.


Luwak’s poop = the most expensive coffee in the world (No, I’m not joking!!). It’s gentle for the stomach and it’s got that chocolate-caramel fragrance. Nice!!



So in this place they own various kinds of plants, mostly Asian herbs, as well as the little guy above, luwak. They produce all those things into a range of traditional tea and coffee. As for luwak coffee, I don’t mind to pay a high price coz I know it’s more expensive elsewhere, but for other stuff like herbal tea, I do think they were overpriced.

Dirty Duck (Bebek Bengil), Ubud

The best thing I had eaten in Bali!! It was a little pricey but considering the portion size and the ambience, it was worth it! Must try!!

Next post: Bali Day 2!

I'm definitely interested in taking a trip to Bali so thanks for this post. I can't wait for the rest! I've heard of the Luwak's poop being the most expensive coffee. I don't know if I would be able to drink it though and I love coffee haha. :)

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog again. Of course, I still remember you!

Lots of love, B
