Bali never ceases to amaze me. On a recent trip, we travelled from Kuta to Ubud via a Volkswagen (VW) Safari tour in Bali. I didn’t even know that was an option !
During the journey, we drove past the busy parts of Kuta, seeing many boutique stores, massage parlours and exotic temples along the frangipani-lined route. As we got closer to Ubud, we saw more of artsy stores, quaint cafes and furniture stores. Its was definitely an interesting way to get a gist of Bali by going around in these vintage VW convertibles !
A stop at one of the padi fields is mandatory !
Another place that we stopped at was the Bukit Sari Temple, located within the Monkey Forest in Sangeh. The forest is a serene place with devotees paying respects in the temple while it’s also a playground for the monkeys. Do note that entrance into the temple is not allowed but you are free to roam about the forest.
Due to time constraint, we didn’t finish the full day with the Volkswagen (VW) Safari Tour.
