Rice fields & temples Bali day tour
Start your Bali day tour at your own preferred time. We will meet you at the lobby of your hotel to discuss your excursion and tailor to your own preferences.
Your first visit is to the Tabanan regency. A first stop is scheduled at to the great royal temple of Pura Taman Ayun in the town of Mengwi.
Taman Ayun Temple
The Taman Ayun temple was built in the 17th century. The structure served as the family temple of the Mengwi dynasty whose kingdom survived until the late 1800s. The temple is famous for its exquisite wooden merus or pagoda-like shrines.
Ulun Danu Bratan water temple
The “Ulun Danu Bratan” water temple was built in 1633 by the Raja of Mengwi. This temple lies on the western shore of Lake Bratan and is one of Bali’s directional temples protecting Bali from evil spirits from the north-west. The Balinese people rely on their rice harvest and the goddess of water and fertility, Dewi Danu, who is the deity honoured here.
After Lake Bratan your tour continues with a visit to a nearby traditional Balinese market where you can meander through the wares.
Jatiluwih Rice Terraces
This western upland of Mt. Batukaru is famed for magnificent landscapes. The view from the mountain village, Jatiluwih, takes in the whole of Southern Bali. Jatiluwih is nominated for UNESCO’s World Heritage list as a world cultural heritage.
Perched on a high terraced slope, Jatiluwih deserves its name, which means “Truly Marvelous”.
Having enjoyed the views of Jatiluwih, you will have the option to have a lunch break at an Indonesian restaurant (not included in package rate) on the way up to your next stop, which will be the famous “Tanah Lot” temple.
The Tanah Lot Temple is one of Bali’s most iconic temples. It is built on-top of a large rock at a short distance from the shore. At high tide the ocean blocks access to the temple. At low tide you can walk across to see the temple up-close.
Tanah Lot faces West and is an excellent place to enjoy a stunning sunset at the end of your day.
