I've always wanted to go to Bali. So when AirAsia invited me to a media fam trip to Bali, I was beyond excited. Actually even before I got the invitation, I was already planning to go to Bali haha so the invitation came just in time for me!! 

Many of you might be wondering: 
Is it safe to travel to Bali now after the Mount Agung eruption? 

After getting reaffirmation from the Indonesia Tourism Board and my personal experience, we can confidently tell you that YES, IT IS SAFE to travel to Bali now! I even visited a temple overlooking the view of Mount Agung, which I will share below! 

1st March

In-flight meal - Chicken Satay!! (Tastes pretty good actually heh)
Our stay for 2 nights at Swiss Belinn Legian

We departed to Bali from KL at 4pm and by the time we reached Bali airport, it was already late and the sky has already turned dark. Hence, we didn't get to do much today except having a late dinner at our hotel - Swiss Belinn Legian (which we stayed for 2 nights). 

2nd March
Today is our first official day in Bali! We had to wake up at 5am to get ready, and gathered at 6am to depart to our first destination. Despite having to wake up at such an ungodly hour, I felt super excited to explore Bali. It's my first time in Bali and it remained on my bucket list for the longest time! 

Pura Lempuyang
We hopped on our bus, and made our way to Pura Lempuyang (which was 2 hours away from our hotel omg). The ride was honestly pretty tiring but as soon as we reached the destination, we were all pumped up to visit one of the oldest temples in Bali and it offers a majestic view of the Mount Agung (depends on the weather condition as well). 

As Lempuyang Temple is a very sacred place, visitors are required to dress up appropriately upon entering. NO shorts, singlets, spaghetti-strapped tops are allowed. However, scarves were provided to me so that I can cover my shoulders. 

This place is just breathtaking.

After visiting the temple, we visited Tirta Gangga which is also known as the water palace garden. This place is just beyond beautiful with its mixture of Balinese and Chinese inspired architecture. It is such a picturesque place with statues set on stones on the pond and a fountain surrounded with a lush garden. I felt super zen here!

Moving on, we were invited to a Balinese buffet lunch by the beach at Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa. Super gorgeous and huge resort! 

After lunch, we were invited to the Legian Beach Hotel and Candi Beach Resort for a hotel tour (I believe these 2 hotels are somehow connected because they are very near to each other). I wish I could spend a night or so here! It has got a beautiful beach view, gorgeous swimming pools surrounded by palm trees and unique Balinese statues...these resorts totally set a perfect vacation mood!

3rd March
We checked-out from our first hotel and departed to Puri Santrian Resort (where we spent 1 night here). Also, we have got a series of activities to do in the resort so I was really excited. But first, let me show you our resort!

The interior of The Santrian Club reflects the influence of traditional Balinese style, culture and comfort. 

Their swimming pools are just amazing!

In the afternoon, we were invited to attend a Balinese cooking class by the beach!! We got to learn how to cook an array of local dishes such as Sambal Tomat, Bumbu Bali, Pepes Ikan, Ayam Bumbu and even Satay under the guidance of an expert Balinese chef!! (You may book this activity from the resort)

After lunch, guess where we went? SEA-WALKING!!!! 
Puri Santrian is one of the few resorts that provide this activity so I told myself I CANNOT MISS THIS. Honestly I was kinda afraid and reluctant to go because I can't swim, but the PIC told me that this activity is suitable for anyone, even for those who can't swim!! 

So I went and it was the BEST decision ever. 

I did not regret any single bit of it because it was just so much fun and memorable. I conquered my fear and I gained new experiences that will etch in my mind forever. 

After a short briefing, we were off to the sea! First, a "helmet" will be placed on top of your shoulders and that helmet allows you to breathe normally under the sea. Then, you will be instructed to descend a ladder which leads you to the bottom of the sea. There will be instructors guiding you along the way so you don't have to worry at all! 

When I reached the bottom of the sea, I was like OMG AM I UNDER THE SEA ALREADY?? OMG THIS IS AMAZING. 

We were also able to FEED the fishes and when nearly hundreds of fishes sprung in front of you to get fed, I was speechless. I got to touch the fishes with my own hands, see them up close with my own eyes. The entire experience left me speechless. T__T  Thank you Puri Santrian for this wonderful lifetime experience!!

 Here's a picture of me with Kairul (another Malaysia influencer)! Look at how excited we looked haha! (I will include a video clip of this activity in my vlog!!)

4th March

Woke up feeling a lil dull because it's our last day in Bali already! I wasn't ready to leave yet! :(
We had some free time before checking-out so I went around our resort to take some photos. This photo was taken by myself using two water bottles as tripod with my Samsung Galaxy A8+'s Live Focus function HAHAHA. Pro mou? 

The next post will be a compilation of the cafes that I went in Bali! So STAY TUNED! x
