September 21, a long-awaited trip to Bali, finally we could leave. A total of 18 people in our group, in addition to a tour guide, I and my mother, the others were China Orienwise, a group of young people from Shen Zhen.


We took boat to Hong Kong from ShenZhen airport at first, then flew. After a four hour flight, we arrived in the capital, Jakarta, Indonesia, and after another hour flight, we arrived in "xanadu", Bali. After arriving at resorts, hostesses took each of us the wreath on the neck, full-bodied fragrance, when was at two o 'clock in the next morning. In this way, "Bali five days quality group" had been passed a day.


At nine o 'clock in the morning the following day, we came to the cafeteria, after enjoyed a big breakfast in the hotel, then we went to Bedugul. Bedugul is a village beside where a lake was formed by a dead crater in the mountains. At an altitude of 1500 meters, the climate is cool and it is a summer resort. We had lunch in the beautiful rural scenery, we can feel quiet and peaceful atmosphere. When we came to the lake of Bedugul in the mountains, the lake scenery in the mountains, mountain mist floating between the mountains and on the lake all the year round, the air is fresh, cool climate, as if to place oneself in fairyland. There is a Hindu pagoda by the lake, the lake sometimes filled with[what?]. The shore path into the pagoda floored with water, gave a person a kind of illusion that the tower was floating in the water.


Finally, we went to Bali sign - is well known in the world, "Tanah Lot Temple", which truly was the most unique temple in Bali, it was located on a rock near the sea. When tides rise, this rock  becomes a small island, and from far looks like a crown on the sea.


Said goodbye to Tanah Lot in the evening. After dinner we took archaize open-balcony jeep to visit Kuta, then enjoyed the most dreamy color action in Bali - SPA.


On the third day we had free time throughout the day in Bali. The young people of China Orienwise Group took a boat to visit the Great Barrier Reef. My old mother was inconvenience on the action, so we laid down in a pair of beach chair, really found the feeling on vacation. Swimming is my favorite, so I swam in the sea, jumped into a beautiful pool, played water polo, and bought food and drink for mom. She was surprised that I could speak so much English, asked me to take her to go to Singapore, Malaysia in future. From time to time there are visitors who admired us.


After lunch, my mother went back to our room to rest. I went around the town, and when tired, came back to the beach, found those "Gweilo"es were there all day. A girl was lying in a chair reading "Harry Potter". I had seen the sister and the brother in the morning playing beach volleyball with the hotel's "black" now. I got lost in the watch of countless small plaits on the sister’s head, when the "black" called me to join their side to play the ball, there were also the sister and brother’s mom and dad in the rivals, grandpa was sitting aside to watch. So I had a very happy afternoon.


On the fourth day, after ate breakfast in the hotel, drove to beautiful scenery Kintamani, fresh and pleasant climate, the region was also a popular summer resort. We had lunch here, as overlooked the presence of Gunung Batur and Danau Batur with the name of Bali Fuji. The volcanoes here were majestic, the lake was clear, natural beauty, a natural greatness not to be missed.


We went to AYung River later, which was the most popular white water rafting resort for tourists in Bali at that time. Rapids continuously all the way here, but there were no dangers! Sublime and quiet scenery on both sides of the river valley, we sometimes pass through the noisy bat caves, and sometimes through torrents over the waterfall, and sometimes jumped in the clear river, enjoy the fun of "swim"! Coupled with humorous coach, a trip to the white water rafting really was fun!


The fifth day, we flew back to Hong Kong from Jakarta, ended the carefree and wonderful travel, but left a good memory, let's say to her sincerely: Hello, Bali!

Very nice blog Cao Hui. But I have one question - you always post great photos taken by yourself of everywhere you go, so what happened to Bali? Did you forget your camera? I'm hoping you just forgot and can still post some.

Thanks for this colourful description of the wonders of Bali, Panda. It sounds to be a wonderful holiday that you had there.

You may be interested to know that more Australian tourists visit Bali that any other nationality, due to its close proximty to here (only 2700kms from Darwin) and its cheap currency. Very low cost to live there.

Many associates of mine have been to Bali. On one occasion, a friend begged me to accompany her there as she didn't want to travel alone. I declined, despite her repeated requests. For whatever reason, the place held no real attraction for me.

The Indonesian and Australian governments are currently at loggerheads about the tidal wave of refugees - also called "boat people" - from Afghanistan; Sri Lanka and other parts of Asia who transit through Indonesia in an attempt to settle illegally in Australia. In many cases, the Indonesian authorities turn a blind eye to this practise, which has been angering the government here, given that we're talking about thousands of illegal immigrants every year. It's been a major domestic election issue, in fact, with both major political parties here trying to score points with the populace about who is going to be tougher on a recalcitrant Indonesia in an attempt to stem the human tide of refugees, many of whom are not bona fide refugees in the true sense of the word. They simply wish to move to a more advanced country and choose to do it under the radar.

In turn, the Indonesian government has been issuing stern warnings recently to the Australian navy to not breach its territorial waters, which has inadvertently occurred a number of times lately. I think it's fair to say that the relationship between Indonesia and Australia are in some aspects, similar to that between China and Japan. Not exactly the best of friends.

Having said this though, thousands of Aussies fly to Bali each year. The local economy there depends on them. For my part though, I'll be happier to fly over the top of Indonesia, on my way to visit China. A far more culturally rich, interesting and diverse nation, in my view.

Your trip there seems so beautiful and enjoyable, thanks for sharing:-)

Bali island is the southest in the south globe, so many gorgerous natural scenaries.
I think I will go there for some days as a free walker, I like to arrange my trip by myself and hate to meet the schedule of travel agent,

It is a lot of fun to talk with locals and taxi drivers, which is my way to get familar with the place and the food in new places, so nice experience...

@dancingshoes @sandy339 @panda2009 @shirley9183 lol

As soon as DancingShoes mentioned she had possessed in the past some coupons for a free tour around Bali, suddenly half of the CLM membership decided to become her best friend, in the hopes of accompanying her if ever she gets any more free tickets - me included!

Now does anyone else see this as rather hilarious?

Well done, DancingShoes! (rofl)
