Beautiful Sunset

Even though it was very crowded with loads of people, the view was spectacular and one to tick of my bucketlist.

My father and I were recently in Bali and visited three different temples. Uluwatu was my least favorite. It is situated on these beautiful cliffs by the sea which should provide for great pictures but it is packed with tourist groups that come in hoards. You can't actually access the temple, so your best bet for good pictures is to... More

The only upside of it is, it's relatively near to most tourist trap in the kuta, seminyak, nusa dua area. So tour operators love to bring their crowd here. People are here to overlook to a cliff or to catch a sunset. You would forgot that this is a temple, there's no serenity here. If what you are looking for... More

The temple on the cliff is quite beautiful. Most tour guides or private drivers will recommend the dance performance which costs about $10. Although the theater is outdoor and you watch the performance as the sun is setting it is not worth your time. The story can be very confusing to understand if you are not familiar with the Hindu...

Like other scenic locations Uluwatu too has the best views and one of the best temples of Bali. Beware of the monkeys since it is not quite friendly like the ones in Sacred monkey Forest. The monkeys can snatch your food or chappals...Yes you read it right! The chappals you are wearing it can come in groups and snatch it... More

Great show fun and semi interactive and beautiful sunset - very cool temple - but due to the local "mafia" against Uber - you can't get an Uber home and have to take local transport at twice the rate. It's totally crooked. So if going down from Kuta for sunset you should just hire a car for the whole day... More
