The amazing temples of Tanah Lot and Uluwatu can also be seen in a one afternoon trip. Now it is true that here we cheated a bit, and we just couldn’t leave Bali without going on a couple of day trips around the island to see the above mentioned temples and Besakih Temple further North. It is a little detail that for us made a big difference between vacationing and traveling.
I know some people consider the all-inclusive resorts to be something else but traveling. I don’t entirely agree, because at Grand Mirage Resort we met local people ready to help you tap into the culture of the place, tasted delicious local dishes, sampled shows inspired from the culture of the island and so on. Plus, English-speaking, Balinese drivers with fancy cars were waiting just by the entrance of the hotel, ready to take the guests on fantastic, taylor-made day trips. So there were options. All-inclusive doesn’t mean you can’t chose to do something different one day and go explore the surroundings.
And the sunrises we enjoyed from the privacy of our room were beyond amazing.
