After breakfast, start with a visit to the royal Taman Ayun Temple in Mengwi for a look at its beautiful ponds, multi-tiered roof structures and traditional Balinese architecture.
Next, drive north to Lake Bratan for a visit to Ulun Danu Temple. The temple is set in the lake’s calm waters on several small islands giving the impression that it is ‘floating’. It’s widely considered to be one of the most photogenic temples in Bali, so be sure to take a few photos! Afterwards, have a look at the local market which is famous for its extensive collection of exotic tropical fruits, vegetables and species.
Lunch is served at Bamboo Forest restaurant.
Continue with a visit to Bali’s UNESCO-listed Jatiluwih for panoramic views of its iconic rice terraces. Located on a slope near the holy mountain of Batukaru, this area is known as the ‘Rice Granary of Bali’, and is one of the best examples of subak-style rice farming. Here, go for a one-hour leisurely walk through the rice fields for an up-close look at the verdant scenery.
Late in the afternoon, arrive at the incredible sea temple of Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s most famous temples. Set dramatically on a small island just off from the beach, watch as the sun sets behind the horizon in one of Bali’s most iconic places to watch the sunset.
