The Tirtagangga Water Palace
Tucked away in East Bali is one of the most spectacular and breathtaking attractions you’ll ever visit, the Tirtagangga Water Palace.
As a former royal palace, Tirtagangga is an oasis of beautiful and colourful gardens, water features, fish and statues. It’s a calm haven that’s well worth a visit.
Even better, if you get there before 10 in the morning, you’ll be one of the few people around – allowing you to truly take in the serenity and bliss the site has to offer.
Just don’t forget proper swimming atire. The water palace is also home to two outdoor swimming pools, one for men and one for women.
See the sunrise from the Mount Batur volcano
Bali isn’t just miles of idyllic beaches. The island is also home to the scenic countryside and active volcanos, including Mount Batur.
Over 5,600 feet above sea level, the top of Mount Batur offers impressive and unbeatable views of Bali. But that’s not all. It’s also one of the best places on the island to sit and watch the sunrise.
If you get the chance, take a guided hike up the mountain to watch the sunrise. It will be a moment you’ll never forget.
See traditional Bali from Munduk
In the north of Bali lies the traditional town on Munduk. With only a handful of B&Bs, this town doesn’t see as much tourism as the rest of the island, giving you the perfect chance to explore a part of the island’s traditional culture.
What’s more, Munduk also makes the perfect base for a number of unbeatable attractions, including the breathtaking Melanting waterfalls, reachable by just a short trek.
