After the dinner, to those who love shopping, there are many shopping complex for you along Jl Kartika Plaza and Jl Bakuns Sari in Kuta. When walk along Jl kartika Plaza, I spot this donkey cart which carry passengers to have a quick walk around Kuta town. I see they are in good business, most family travellers take a ride.
In 2011, all the 4 hotels have their swimming pool as one of their facility and attraction. Some has only one pool and some has more pools up to 3 pools. We enjoy to spend some of our time, leisuring in the water. The pool of the Flora Kuta Hotel is among the smallest but the cleanliness is perfect. The Inna Grand Beach Hotel has 3 pools and among the noisiest as its has too many Chinese guests. The pool of the Meslasti Bungalow and Spa is among the quitest, less guest want to swim that day, we enjoy the whole pool. The Kuta Beach Club's pool is full of laughing, there are parent coached their kids to swim and I had a cup of coffee from the pool cafe.
In Bali hotels, you can request for the password in order to have the WIFI connection. Remember to ask for a place with stronger WIFI signal, the hotel staff would help to point it for you, it is either at the pool side, the coffee huts or near the staircase. Just follow and you get better result.
The Bali Art and Bali Painting Studios are scattered around tourist spots in Kuta, Tanah Lot, Ubud, Sanur, Legian and Seminyak. The art piece, is priceless, if you like it, you can bargain for a price you think it worth and have it. If you have enough time, you can shop around as most of the art are based on the same theme produce by different artists, some of if are in fine quality. Travel around Bali, you would noticed that their workshops are at the country side, where the artists can paint in a more relaxation atmosphere.
When I was in Bali in 2011, I have no chance to go to the market but future trip to Bali I would love to plan a visit to have a look at what is local market like and what the fruit and food stuff the vendors offer.
Travelling along the road in Bali island, I come across many fruit stalls along the road side. The fruits are arrange like many small hills. They are colourful and very attractive.
The Bali driver felt reluctant to stop, maybe to avoid side effect of the sweeten that attracts insects.
I do not tried the fruit but for many times, I ordered fruit juice during my meal, the avocado drink is highly recommended.
Before you go in to the queue for Visa and Immigration, there are many racks along the walkway display flyers and advertisements about what you can do to explore Bali. If you have not plan anything, remember to pick some, you may do some comparison to decide what you want to do next in Bali, there are so many interesting things you can do in Bali, all have different attractions.
When in queue for immigration check, short line and senior officer in-charge would sometime takes longer time as they would find chance to demand some extra tips.

to make your holiday unforgettable you should do something like water rafting,very popular in bali,or diving to see ander water marine life
I really enjoy rafting since my great Australian rafting expecience on the Tully river. So Bali offer me another opportunity to ride 16km of white water on Telagawaja river with numerous rapids and small waterfall... what an exhilarating and refreshing adventure. No timeout during 2 hours as you will need to paddle, reverse paddle, bump, scream, laugh, fishing some overboard paddler as I did... no worries you will be safe with your experienced and very professional guide. At the end you will be rewarded by a last uphill walk accross rice fields before taking a warm shower at the camp base and enjoying a large buffet to retreive forces.
So let's go rafting!
Bali is a very fertile island thanks to irrigation and volcanic soil. Nature is generous and you will be able to taste some nice exotic sweet fruits as the snake fruit (the scaly skin is like a snake) or the smelly but tasty durian. Enjoy the scenery.
On the shore of Lake Bratan at 1'200m above sea level (Bedugul area), you will find the stunning "floating" Pura Ulun Danu Bratan (Lake Bratan Temple). This temple was built in 1663 and devoted to the water goddess Dewi Danu.
An small entrance fee is requested to visit the temple.
Balinese underwater world is amazing. Around Bali you will find some great diving spot as Kubu, Tumlaben, US Liberty wreck, Amed, Blue Lagoon, Padang BaiNusa, Shark Point, Candidasa, Nusa Penida, Manta Point...
Colorful soft coral garden contrast with the black volcanic sand and impressive volcanic walls (called drop off) full of marine life. My great day & night dives let me meet many of locals as anemone, clams, ringed piperfish, scorpion fish, blue spotted stingray, puffer fish, nudibranch, clown "Nemo" fish, lion fish, box fish, pigmy seahorse, trumpet fish, garden eel, bird wrasse, angel fish, octopus, cattle fish, moray, barraccuda, spider crab, orang outan shrimp, arlequin shrimp, humphead parrot fish, napoleon, mola mola (sunfish), manta and even an unexpected swordfish!
The "cleaning station" at the house reef of my resort was one of my favourite dive... just let your hand be taken care by dozens of little friendly shrimps for a free funny and tickle mancure ;-)
So Dive now, work later ;-)
Right across the road from the Northern end of Kuta beach is The Hard Rock Cafe Bali easy to see with the large guitar that stands out front....being a really hot day this was just the place for a cold beer and as I always do my best to visit any Hard Rock Cafe in any city wherever I may be.
This was on my list of things to do here in Kuta Beach....as usual with any Hard Rock Cafe the staff are always extremely courteous and after a quick chat I exchanged a few spare "Sydney" guitar pins that I was carrying for that reason...The bar here has a huge wooden guitar above the bar and is the standout when you walk in although at the moment under renovation I think the interior is going to be changed somewhat..There is a large amount of musical memorabilia located within the dining and bar area and as is the case with all Hard Rocks, they certainly have their share of some great memorabilia on display here...I took many photos and then visited the Rock Shop to buy my Bali Hard Rock Cafe guitar pin for my collection.
When I was staying in south of Bali in Kuta Beach just after my arrival I was advised that a good place to visit was The Hindu Temple at Aluwatu..I decided along with two friends that it was really cheap to get a taxi on a "day hire" the rate was very inexpensive...also we could stop along the way and see other places of interest...here also the Taxi driver was not only helpful but great company..The cost for the day was very inexpensive divided three ways and also the hire rate will depend on your bargaining skills.The large Hindu Temple of Uluwatu is located precariously on the cliff top and makes for a wonderful photograph.
When at the Temple there is a modest entry fee and that is for the hire of a "sarong" that ALL visitors must wear at the temple.There also is a small fee for entry to the site and also for the guide who will show you the various points of interest and who carries a slingshot to scare off the troublesome monkeys that are in abundance here...
A word of WARNING here also to be very careful of the monkeys here..they will jump at you and steal anything that they can quickly grab and then run off with...so..hats,sunglasses, jewelry,wrist watches,cameras, ANYTHING.. and also their favourite is your thongs (The rubber footwear type)..these animals also are very aggressive and they bite..be very careful as some have rabies..if bitten seek immediate medical attention..
