Day 4: Bali (Tanah Lot, Jimbaran)

My cousin drove us to Tanah Lot in the late afternoon. It was an hour drive from Seminyak and we were lucky that we didn't encounter any traffic jam. Saw many tourist buses in drove at the entrance, not surprising because Tanah Lot is the number one tourist attraction in Bali.

Souvenir shops along the way to the temple.

Look carefully, it's Ballibong!

Care to take photo with a giant snake?

Pura Batu Bolong
This temple is just a short walking distance from the famous Tanah Lot, but I never heard of it at all. The scenery here was pretty nice too, I wonder why it wasn't as famous.

At dusk, too bad no sunset for us. :(

Jimbaran Beach
I didn't expect that having dinner here could be so romantic. I was pretty excited when I saw that the tables were set up on the beach and with candle light. Awwww...

We had our dinner at Roman Cafe, but the next door Ramayana was pretty crowded too.

Seafood dinner at Jimbaran beach, must include this in the itinerary.

Totally in love with the ambience here. I could hear the ocean waves, felt the soft sands under my feet and as a bonus, we saw some fireworks too. Wow!

A failed attempt to capture the fireworks hehe..

The food was great too, this was the best meal we had in Bali!

Many types of condiments to go with our seafood.

Stir fried kangkung was yummy.

We ordered a 1.3 kg fish and it was very fresh. Thumbs up!

Huge prawns were nicely grilled.

Black pepper crab, not as good as the other two.

Total bill of this meal was about SGD 40 for three persons, and we were very satisfied. Burp!

Just a word of precaution, heard from my cousin that the weighing scale of many restaurants here was rigged or at the end of the bill they charged a 21% service charge. So asked necessary questions and checked out the situation before getting too excited.
