Mr. Bagus. He charged IDR 300,000 per car (Toyota Avanza)/ day. He offered to pick us up at the airport on the first day (without charges). Thus the total amount we spent for transport was IDR 900,000/ RM318.20 (for 3 full days, for 4 person). Great deal eh?
Continued from Bali Day 1……
A night to re-energize and we’re all ready for action again. Woke up early and checked out of Tune hotel (we stayed in 3 different hotels for the 3 nights we spent in Bali).
Here’s our itinerary for Day 2:
#1 Breakfast at Made’s Warung
For locals or even tourist alike, this place is famous. We have read reviews on Bali’s must dine-in venue and Warung Made (pronounced as ‘mah-deh’) had made it on almost every page of the dining lists. Since it’s highly recommended, we were even excited to check it out for ourselves. It’s local food we’re searching for! 🙂
Gado-Gado (Vegetable in peanut sauce)
Nasi Goreng Special
Verdict: Not the best we had, and tastewise, we find it overrated somehow. Ah.. maybe it’s just us, or this place have been to commercialized to a degree of diminishing authenticity.

#3 Ground Zero
As you may know, some of the happening pubs, lounges and clubs are centered around the epicenter of the Bali bombing zone, known as ‘ground zero’. There, stand a bombing memorial which is a marble wall with the victims’ names & tiled road.
#6 Balinese Spa @ Wahyu Spa
Pamper yourself with a relaxing session of massage and spa while you’re in Bali.
We went for a package that includes sauna, foot bath, balinese massage, choice of body scrub, skin conditioning and flower milk bath.
Duration : 2 Hours
Price : IDR 300,000/ RM107 (per pax)
There are cheaper ones out there definitely as this one is located at Nusa Dua. (we later saw one of the spa centers in Ubud that offered IDR 300,000 for about 4 hours!)

#7 Glass Chapel @ Thirtha Uluwatu
“Thirtha makna air suci” said Mr Bagus, our guide cum driver
He dove us over to this heavenly venue when we mentioned about visiting their ‘Gereja Kaca’.
This is perfect place if you’re planning a wedding soon! We went oohed & aahed over every little details that was brought to us. They really pioneered the wedding concept, selecting Bali’s most magical setting; sun, sea & blue sky. They also provide all-inclusive services to cater to every aspect of your wedding.
Wedding package starts from USD2700.
#9 Pura Uluwatu
It’s a cultural temple located in the southwest of Bali, well-known for “kechak” performances and mischievous monkeys.
Note: Dress up in sarongs (it’s compulsory to not bare your thighs). Take good care of your belongings; esp sunglasses, camera, head/hairbands & not to get too close with the monkeys at all cause, cos they ain’t nice at all.
Witnessing these little rascal snatching belongings from visitors is a normal scene and they have to get something (e.g peanuts or fruits) from the vendors to exchange it with the cunning monkeys!
We then head over to Ubud……
#10 Naughty Nuri’s Ribs was Awesome
The luring aroma from its front door already pulled us in quick.
BBQ Ribs with the kicking flavour! Soft meat texture penetrated with flavoursome sauce from marination that’ll not stick on the bone.
The Chicken skewers were just so-so however…
