    Hey hey,

    I’m a fellow backpacker too! I’ve been on the road for the last two years and I loved Bali! I love most of South East Asia to be honest, it is safe for solo travelers, cheap and easy to get around. I would say more so than South America or Africa.

    Happy travels!

  6. I have been to Tanah. Beautiful to see at sunset, take photos and explore the rock pools on the beach around the temple! Get there a bit earlier if you would like to do some shopping at the market beforehand. The issue is the long drive with traffic and then when you reach the long walk… Still a must see.

  7. I have been to Tanah. It was beautiful to see during sunset.

  8. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a marvellous job.

    Nice post. Lovely photo captures of Bali temples. Bali is one of the most beautiful and picturesque destinations in Indonesia, I visited last year, it was my first time experience. Bali is really beautiful especially for honeymooners. The blue waters were crystal clear. The paddy field covered in the new blooms. The volcanic mountains were covered in mists. The weather was pleasant. The view of sunset was one of the most beautiful sights I’ve had seen.
