I am back again with my next post from our Bali travel chapter.
To WARN you, this one is gonna have a lot of pictures!! 😛 So without much of delay i will let you all go through the pics. 🙂
We woke up early on Day 3 as we had a lot of places to explore suggested by our driver. First stop was the Batik crafts making workshop. Batik is generally thought of as the original Indonesian textile. Motifs of batik are close to nature such as flowers, twinning plants, leaves buds, flowers, birds, butterflies, fish, insects and geometric forms are rich in symbolic association and variety. From processing the idea to create an extraordinary motif, making pattern and sewing, everything is done manually.
Getting my scarf painted, traditional Batik style!!
Silver making– Everything from beating the metal to crafting it in beautiful design is handmade. Not much of machine-loving place it is i believe. 🙂
Beautiful hand painting
Next stop was the Coffee plantation. The rich volcanic soil and the climate in the Kintamani region has proved ideal for coffee growing and small scale production has rapidly spread. We tasted some 12 different flavours of coffee and i liked almost all except one called Kopi Luwak. It is made of the seeds of coffee berries once they have been eaten and egested by the Luwak named animal. It is one of the costliest coffee available in Bali. I could not dare to taste that one though. 😛
A nice view to sit by and have some amazing coffee.
Here goes the coffee making process.
In sync with nature. 🙂
After tasting coffee, next stop was the Pura Puseh temple in Batuan village. It has ancient structure dated to the 11th century, embellished with intricate stone carvings.Its icons and decorations are typically Balinese in style.
Beautiful temple premises
Posing on as we go!! 🙂
A candid capture!!
After this, we left for Goa-Gajah or Elephant caves. The primary figure was once thought to be of an elephant, hence the nickname Elephant Cave.
These caves are located in Ubud, Bali and were found out during the excavations by architects.

The spring water considered holy to drink or wash hands before entering the caves.
After this we stopped for a yummy lunch somewhere in Ubud on our way to Tanah Lot temple, which turned out to be a romantic one. All thanks to our driver who took us here. 🙂
The gorgeous Balinese cuisine restaurant
With the pretty Balinese girls 🙂
Day ended basking in the glorious sunset at the most beautiful Tanah lot temple. Watching the sky changing its color and the sound of water gushing was a experience in itself. <3
This one is my favourite shot of me 😉
