Date of Visit: 14th August 2012
If there is more than one particular flight back homeland, mostly I will book in the evening one, as long it's still within my budget so that we could have more time to venture around. Same goes for my Bali trip. Our flight back to Kuala Lumpur was 7pm, and because of that, we had plenty of time to wander around Kuta and Legian area, where our hotel was situated.
#1: Bali Bombing Memorial
We walked around for last minute of shopping and we came across of this Bali Bombing Memorial. This permanent memorial was built for 202 people who being killed due to terrorist bombing attack right in the center of Kuta district.
#2: Hustle and bustle of Kuta district - If you are looking for good foods, good bars, shopping and more, this is the best place for you.
#3: Beachwalk, a newly open-aired mall overlooking the Indian Ocean at the very heart and soul of Kuta. Stores like Topshop, Zara, Guess, Mango, Pull & Bear can be found here.
#4: The world famous beach, Kuta Beach. And guess what, I spotted topless women here. I'm kid not.
#5: McDonald, KCF, convenience store and more right along Kuta Beach
#6: Our lunch - McDonald but I was more attracted to McCafe. At that moment, McCafe was just opened in Kuala Lumpur not more than a month.
Done with shopping, done with strolling along the beach, done with lunch, but then, we realised we still have plenty of time before leaving to airport. So my friends suggested for Balinese massage since there are plenty of massage parlour located nearby our hotel.
#7:We did half hour body massage and it cost IDR50,000 (approx. to RM17). Freaking dirt cheap!
And so, finally we decided to leave to airport around 4 pm. The distance between Kuta area and Ngurah Rai International Airport, or commonly known as Denpasar Airport was not really that far away and it took roughly less than 30 minutes, depending on the traffic jam. As for the taxi fare, it cost around IDR35,000 (approx. to RM12).
#8: Saw this Gatot Kaca Knight statue means we almost arrive the airport.
#9: Balinese architectural theme in the international terminal
#10: Passenger service charge or airport departure tax for IDR150,000 (approx. to RM51) is compulsory to pay by every passenger before leaving Bali. So don't forget to keep your money!
#11: Even the Balinese split gate can be seen here.
#12: A beautiful and long masterpiece drawing of Balinese culture
Another two final blogposts before I officially wrap up my Bali travelogue.
