Check out of the Ubud hotel and travel to Seminyak. First visit is to Mengwi “Taman Ayun”, known as the “Garden Temple in the Water”. Being a UNESCO Heritage site and one of the seven royal temples in Bali, the imposing complex stands on an island in a river and consists of two courts and a walled inner temple closed to non-Hindus.
Leaving the temple, we visit the sacred Monkey Forest, a cluster of towering trees, home to hundreds of monkeys. From here, we travel to Tanah Lot, the Temple of Earth and Sea, and watch the sunset beyond the black towers of this 16th century temple built on a black lava rock 200 meters off shore. The dramatic setting draws crowds to these shores every evening, and at low tide we can walk up on the rocky outcrop where the temple sits over the ocean.
