Second day we hired a local driver June for 10 hours to take us around Bali.
We read the guidebook and were interested in Seminyak Square weekend market and asked June to take us there. We thought it would be a big market but actually it was quite small and we didn’t find anything interesting… quite disappointing. Then we went to another place called Geneva Handicraft also recommended in the book but it was another disappointment!! There were indeed a lot of stuff but the place seems not to be popular anymore, most of the objects are covered with dust and products are not delicated enough for us… well the price is cheap indeed..
Then June took us to a supermarket which he said a lot of tourists will go. It was better than Geneva Handicraft and also a lot of people. But the things there are very touristic and not very special, so we just looked around.
After these weird morning visit, we went to Biku to find something to eat. Biku is famous for its afternoon tea. The building itself is a traditional Joglo style house and the atmosphere is very nice! Too bad we only had a few time because we had massage appointment at 2pm!!
Jeri Menari (dancing finger) is one of the most famous massage in Bali. The price is more expensive but the technique is really good. Strongly recommended!!!
After the massage, we went to Tanah Lot. The temple in the ocean! It was really beautiful and was the best part of today! Everyone need to cross the ocean to get to the temple. It was super excited to cross the ocean because the wave was really high and it’s quite deep!!!
After you crossed to the temple, you can wash your face with the holy water and donate some money. The staff will give you a flower and also stick rice on your face. Only the followers can enter the temple so tourists will just walk around the temple.
People often come here to see sunset and it was indeed beautiful!!
If you would like to find a driver in Bali. I can recommend our driver June. He is a nice and experienced Balinese driver. Price for 10 hours is Rp. 450,000 which I think is quite cheap comparing to other drivers.
