On the second day of my Bali trip, I visited Ubud and Tanah Lot. Also got a chance to have a glimpse of the Balinese Hindu culture. Thanks to Mr Dewa, our guide who is also a monk in Bali. He shared a lot of information about the culture and lifestyle of Balinese people. I found there are a lot of similarities between Indian and Balinese culture.

Once an offbeat tourist destination in Bali, Ubud is gaining popularity. This place is for those looking solitude in a natural environment. In the quick visit to Ubud, Mr Dewa took us to Pulina Bali coffee plantation. You can get a panoramic view of the terraced paddy fields, which have gained recognition from UNESCO because of its uniqueness. I also visited the Ubud market after that.
In the evening I visited the famous Hindu temple of Tanah Lot. It is a major tourist spot in Bali thus can be found in almost every tourist’s checklist. It is said that the sunset view from Tanah lot should not be missed. Although I found there are many other places in Bali which offer a better view of Sunset. So for me, this place looks quite overrated.
