    Day 2, April 17, 2013 | Kuta and Tanah Lot
    highlight: accommodation tips, Kuta Beach, Tanah Lot Temple

    So! From GWK we firstly headed back to the hotel as it was in the way, and got ready for a long ride to Kuta Beach. What made it an easy trip for non-native rider like me was, of course, the advice I got from Villa Puri Royan staffs, as stated in the prior article. They gave me advice such as that I have to only follow road that has white-stripe in the middle because then I would never get lost in any way, since it’s the main road, and thanks God, that Bali doesn’t have many main road.

    We woke up quite early and were well-rested, thanks to the comfortable bed of Villa Puri Royan.

FamTrip: Bali (April 16-18, 2013) D1 ~ Jimbaran

Woohoo! Finally! Driven by AirAsia promo, me and mom (yes, you read it right, my mom!) successfully visited the place that was also known as The Island of Gods. Actually this was a first trip we did together in many years, I wasn’t even sure we had a trip together with only the two of us before… anyway without further ado, please enjoy the story of our short 3-days trip!

Day 1, April 16, 2013 | Jimbaran
highlight: accommodation from airport to hotel, hotel, eating, shopping, sunset view, seafood cafes or restaurant for dinner

Waking up, going and getting at the airport too early in the morning was inevitable whenever it was with mom. That aside, Bali trip with mom gave me enough jitters that I booked a hotel room prior on January. Checking, comparing, rechecking and reading review after review on TripAdvisors, in the end I chose to book a room at Villa Puri Royan via (read my TA review for the hotel, here).

An on-time and smooth 2-hours flight later, we found ourselves at a renovated Ngurah Rai International Airport around lunch time with 1 hour plus difference (Bali time is set to GMT+8). After haggling with not much success, we headed to Jimbaran, where the hotel was located, in a private taxi (that’s Xenia for us) for IDR 65.000; from airport to Jimbaran was supposedly around fourty to fifty thousand rupiah only, this was proven when later I got IDR 50.000 from the hotel service. I also read in many blogs that it is actually cheaper using airport taxi that has taxi-meter, like BlueBird.
