Its 9:45 already, didn’t even realized that we have arrived Ngurai international airport, Bali. Since our Visa is on Arrival(25USD) basis it took 45 mins for us to finish the procedures. Our driver was already waiting for us to pick us up in Airport. By the time we reached our beautiful and elegant Langon Bali resort & spa hotel it was 12’o clock.
Beautiful pool of our resort. Just loved it..
At the very first instance we were awestruck with the beauty in and around the resort, we took 1&half hours for refreshing. Then we started our tour..
ISUZU Elf – Which was ours from the coming few days 😛
While we were on our way to Tanjung benoa, we have identified a restaurant ‘Queens’ which has a native Indian flavor in-fact it lured us to have a lavish lunch with “Indian” Cuisine.
Ok..Now its time to recite the place “Tanjung Benoa”: My actual plan was to play some water sports. According to few sources this place is one of the best beaches in Bali for water sports.
Tanjung benoa beach
But it was a disappointment for us(I should better be saying for me) because I’m the only one who is interested in watersports.But due to some unknown reasons there were no water sports on that day.So we explored as much as we can.. It was a sunny day! But still we loved what we saw and experienced…
Balinese Culture is felt every where and anywhere in the islands..
While walking we found a cliff, so we thought of hiking it up. While hiking we found few beautiful spots and had a small photoshoot session 😛
While walking to the end of the cliff …
Photoshoot time with my elder bro and youngest cousin of the family Sajju… 😛
Then we had headed towards most scenic temple “Uluwatu temple” for an ecstatic “Sunset”. Uluwatu Temple, located on the cliff of Jimbaran hills where we have visualized most blissful sunset.
An eastern sun sets on a world of magic…One of the Most stunning sunset I’ve witnessed..
This pic resembles me of Machupichu, Peru 😛
Thats me while capturing the stunning view ..
After the sunset in uluwatu, we went to Kecak & Fire dance performance show at 6:00 pm. Kecak &fire dance is also known as ‘Ramayana Monkey Chant’. This is a Balinese drama based on the epic Ramayana. This is performed primarily by men.This show is performed by a circle of 50-100 or more performers wearing checked cloth around their waists, percussively chanting “cak” and throwing up their arms, depicts a battle from the Ramayana.
This was the best show I’ve seen in Bali.. Don’t miss this if you are planning a trip to Bali.
The Hanuman helped Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana. Kecak has roots in sanghyang, a trance-inducing exorcism dance.

Hanuman most entertaining character in the show..
Show was completed at 7:00 pm. It took 40-50 mins for us to start from there. Our next stop was at Jimbaran bay to have dinner. This place is renowned for a delicious sea food with local bali touch.
It was not only scenic, but also terrifying especially for kids.My nephew started crying after hearing those loud noises made by the waves ..
It was 8:30 PM by the time we reached the place, we all were exciting seeing the place as we had to sit on the shore of the sea with hundreds of people all around the sea coast with only candle lights across the tables made the evening a splendid one indeed…
The best part of Jimbaran bay food is you get to select what you want to eat..
We ended our day with a complete family picture..
Every one were happy and excited because this is our first family vacation outside of India…With this meal we successfully ended day one, With few pleasant memories.
Tips if you are planning a trip to Bali:
1. If you plan for Water sports, then Tanjung benoa beach is the best place for it but go there in the early morning.
2. Don’t miss Sunset at Uluwatu, Try to spend more time at this place..
3. You won’t regret seeing ‘Kecak and fire dance show’.
4. Dinner at Jimbaran bay will be memorable. So dont miss it ..
