Article by Exotissimo Traveler

Bali Bali Bali. Holidaying paradise. Warm ocean waters, towering mountains, green rice fields and fascinating peoples and cultures. Bali is a big place on a small island, if you get our drift (no pun intended). That’s why we are taking you on a memorable tour of the island on a VW Convertible. This experience will take you away from the tourist crowds and into some of the lesser known attractions that have helped shape Bali’s divine reputation.

First, we’ll take you around the natural and agricultural wonders of Central and Northern Bali. See some of the reasons why this island is such a desirable place. The mountainous and hilly slopes create the perfect backdrop to an already scenic and green setting. In addition, we’ll take you to visit some of the area’s villages, farmers and common Balinese folk to further integrate you into this authentic experience. End the day at Lovina, where you’ll check in and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Try swimming and snorkeling.

Lovina is known for the its cute and friendly dolphins. Then, why not start the day with a dolphin spotting trip? An experience with these lovable aquatic mammals will surely brighten up your day. After saying good-bye to your marine friends, experience more of authentic Bali with stops to coffee plantations, fruit and vegetable markets and more villages.

Let’s see what these cars can do, eh? We’ll climb our way up some mountains where beautiful views await. But, there is more. We’ll take you to a large caldera where two awesome crater lakes: Buyan and Tamblingan exist. Since we are up here, we might as well spend the night here. Continue the drive to Jatiluwih, where you will check into a tranquil mountain resort nestled just below the rainforest.

Let’s park the cars for a while and truly experience the outdoors with a light one hour trek. Nothing like a tropical walk, eh? After that, drive to a traditional Balinese compound and then to the beautiful garden Temple of Taman Ayun in Mengwi. Finish the tour with a visit to the scenic and picturesque sea temple of Tanah Lot, your perfect opportunity to shoot some postcard-like pictures.

This three day tour truly recaps some of the island’s highlights. A one day excursion of this trip is also available, for those short on time. Contact us if you have any questions or need further assistance.
