Beautiful Sunset

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

Stunning place to visit, breathtaking views! Great walk along the top rim on the cliffs, can get nice and close to the edge. Visit as early in morning as possible before tourist busses arrive.

The highlight without doubt is the Kecak dance at sunset. It will cost you 100,000 Indonesian rupiah (about $10 AUD). Advise to get there early to get a seat. If the sun is out be prepared to get hot and sweaty! The dance is entertaining and if you concentrate the chanting can you put you in a trance! Be careful... More

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
