As Bali island is predominant by Hindu people, Pura (temple) can be spotted anywhere throughout the island. However, there are only 7 can be called as the main Pura. One not to be missed while foreigners were in Bali is Pura Tanah Lot.

Tanah Lot is probably the most famous of Bali’s temples and mean “Land in the Middle of the sea”.  The temple sits just off the coast on a rock, which is quite spectacular. The temple is visited quite often at sunset and provides great photos.  The temple is believed to be the work of 15th century priest Nirartha.

On the afternoon drive to Pura Luhur, Uluwatu. Pura Luhur is a Balinese Sea Temple at Uluwatu on Bali. It was built in the 11th century, probably one of the most spectacular temples sitting atop the cliffs overlooking the surf at Uluwatu.  Luhur means “something of divine origin” while “Uluwatu” can be broken into “ulu” which means “land’s end” and “watu” means “rock” in the old language). Pura Luhur Uluwatu is one of Bali’s ‘directional temples’ guarding Bali from evil spirits from the SW.

Then proceed to enjoy the Traditional Kecak Dance, a dramatic performance lasting about 45 minutes, where 25-50 dancers chant “cak” and throw up their arms, depicting a battle from the Ramayana where monkeys help Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana. The dance will be performed on an open stage on a cliff in Uluwatu Temple complex, and in the background, a beautiful sunset colors the sky orange as it slowly disappears away, replaced by the moon at night. Proceed to the famous Jimbaran Beach for a romantic dinner right on the beach sand of Jimbaran Beach.

Day 07: Snorkeling (B, L)

Experience the amazing of underwater life in Bali. Pick you up at 7.30 from your hotel to Tulamben Bay. It’s about 2 hours driving from south Bali to reach the site.

The 120m long wreck rests on a 90 degrees angle with the deck facing the open sea and used to be an American supply ship.

Anchored off the coast of Lombok, the ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo during World War II. Miraculously nobody got hurt, but the damage turned the ship into a non-functioning and useless hull. The American Navy’s plan to tow the ship to Singaraja harbour (north Bali) failed as the harbour was completely occupied, so the ship was intentionally stranded on the rocky beach of Tulamben, where it was unloaded.

You can also witness anemone fish, lion fish, scorpion fish, moray eels and schools of brightly coloured harlequin sweetlips, either hiding out or swimming openly around the wreck. The dark volcanic sandy bottom only adds to the mystery of this shipwreck, making it a unique snorkelling adventure and keep an eye out for those blue spotted sting rays, they like to bury themselves in the sand. Return to Kuta area after snorkelling. You’ll arrive at your hotel around 5 pm.
