Bali, Indonesia

For 2 days in Bali, we found a way to make it more longer for us by visiting the must see places. From the airport we already hired a car with a driver which cost us IDR350,000 for 5 hours to anywhere you wanted to go,  petrol cost already  in  (which we thought was a great deal already). We went around with smiles on our faces as this was our first time in Bali and for sure won’t be the last time. The simplicity of the place, the friendly people, the scenic spots and the experience of that dramatic sunset by the beach would make you fall in love with the place. As they say in my first photo below “BALI is my life” might be your line too when you visit the place.
