Middagtour naar Bali Monkey Forest, Mengwi Tempel en Tanah Lot
Op deze tour maakt u een reis door het platteland per touringcar en stopt u voor een korte wandeling (ongeveer 300 meter) door de schilderachtige terrasrijstvelden. Verbouwd in unieke Balinese stijl, omgeven door kokosnootbomen en tropische tuinbouwplanten zoals zoete aardappelen en tapioca. Aan het einde van uw wandeling kunt u relaxen in een Balinees paviljoen en traditionele Indonesische gebakken tapioca en zoete aardappel proeven samen met mineraalwater, koffie of thee.
Na het verlaten van de dorpje Gulingan rijdt u langs de Koninklijke Tempel van Mengwi - Pura Taman Ayun. Dit schilderachtige complex uit 1634 wordt omringd door een gracht en meruheiligdommen met meerdere koepels plus hekken van fijnbewerkt hout.
Daarna gaat u verder naar het heilige Monkey Forest, een cluster met torenhoge bomen waar honderden apen leven.
Laatste stop is Tanah Lot, beroemd in Bali als de zonsondergangtempel. Geniet van de zonsondergang achter de zwarte lavatorens van de heilige 16e-eeuwse tempel, gebouwd op een lavarots 200 meter vanaf de kust.

This tour was amazing!
Was a good tour.
If you like animals this was a fun tour. Bought bananas to feed the monkeys. Monkeys throughout the forest vying to be fed a banana. Great opportunities for photo taking. Temple was interesting.
We were picked up from the hotel then stopped first at a traditional Balinese farm for the fried tapioca and sweet potato. It was an opportunity to go to the toilet on what ended up being a lot of time spent on the road in a minibus. It was time that probably could have been better spent on the rest of the tour though as we must have been there for at least forty-five minutes. Mengwi Temple was beautiful but quite rushed. You had to chose between keeping up with the tour guide to hear what he had to say or taking photos, we opted for the latter. At the monkey forest and Tanah Lot you are left to your own devices to wander around and get a lot more time to explore. There are two monkey forests in the area and from what we heard the one we went to wasn't the better of the two. The monkeys are equally cute and mischievous. The swarms of flies were annoying. Bring lots of insect repellant. At the end of the tour there was a row of stalls and shops where it got awkward, with some particularly pushy hawkers. We got to watch the sun going down at Tanah Lot and it was beautiful, but be prepared for the fact that this is probably the most popular tourist spot on Bali and you will have to fight your way through huge crowds. Doing a guided tour in that kind of environment is impossible, so allowing people to do their own thing is the best approach. The tour guide spent most of the time talking on the minibus about local religious beliefs. I don't know if this was preplanned or because an American woman asked him a number of questions about it, but I would've liked to have learnt a bit more about the places we were visiting. Overall the trip was very light on historical detail. The driver and guide were friendly, but if you are picked up first expect to be dropped off last. By Western standards this was a cheap trip, but by Balinese it was overpriced. Make sure your bring plenty of your own water and small denomination notes to pay to use toilets. We managed to book the tour very last minute, so it was great in that regard, but if you have the time to find something a bit more personalised I'd recommend doing so.
