Kecak and Fire Dance in Uluwatu
The performance: traditional Balinese Kecak and Fire Dance
The stage: on the top of a cliff next to the Uluwatu temple overseeing the Indian Ocean.
The time of the day: performance starts right before sunset.

This dance is performed every afternoon, and bus loads of tourists gather to see it. I understand why. It's not just the chanting and the dance performance in which a Hindu story of the Ramayana is told in different dance acts, but also the setting. The afternoon turns into evening act by act, and after the sun has set, the performers play with fire, right in the front of you. Truly a performance to remember a lifetime.

Gunung Payung Beach
Pantai Gunung Payung or gunung Payung beach is my top favorite hidden beach in Bali, despite of its location and the efforts to get to this beach, the panoramic view is one that money can’t buy and even tired legs and sweating clothes is worth it. Located on southern Bali, at Nusa Dua/Jimbaran peninsula, Pantai gunung payung is hiden very well down from the green hills where Pura/temple Gunung Payung is located. I visited this beach with my best friend, even we the locals have to using some maps and ask for directions from other locals. Once you been there, it will be easy to reach by the second visit.

To reach Pantai Gunung Payung, you have to find the Pura/Temple Gunung Payung first. Once you reach the Temple, just drive like two metres to assigned parking lot. Pantai Gunung Payung is one of those beaches that has not been touch yet..just yet, by investors, so almost everything there is still natural and traditional, thats include you can’t find toilet or proper parking lot or a cafe to eat, but small warung/kiosk is available i guess, but then the view is worth it. Once you parked your car/motorbike, just dont forget to locked it and take the key with you, the safety of your vehicles is…well just let it there as nobody will paid attention to it neither one will come and stole it, so far its safe place Parking fee if available not more than 5000 rupiah and you can park as long as you want.

TIRTA EMPUL TEMPLE
It is about 36 km from the city of Denpasar, in Tampak Siring district, Gianyar regency. The Tirta Empul Temple bequeathed to the people by ancient Rajadom is perhaps one of the most fascinating spot in the area. On the west side of this temple, hight on the hill could be found a Presidential palace that was built during Soekarno’s time. Which is an unspectacular; single-story structure with several outbuildings designed by Sukarna himself and buit in 1954 on the site of a Dutch rest house.
The name of Tirta Empul derives from large spring in the center of the Temple “Tirta “mean holy water and Tirta Empul is Holy spring water. The Tirta Empul’s water flowing down to the Pakerisan’s river. Along the Pakerisan River there are some ancient monuments. The temple was built around 960 AD, during the ruled of Raja Candra Bayangsingha from the Warmadewa dynasty. Coforming  with the structure of the most Balinese temple, it is divided into three main courtyards such as: the outer yard, the middle yard and the inner yard or the holiest part of the temple where the prayers take place.

Uluwatu Cliff
This is a large limestone peninsula which, bar a sliver of land just south of the airport, would be a separate island. It is rugged and dry, and pre-tourist development this was a real backwater of Bali.
The Bukit (as it is commonly referred to) includes the famous cliff-hanging temple at Uluwatu, a number of Bali's very best beaches including Balangan, and the top surfing spots on the island. As is so often the case, it was intrepid surfers who really opened up the eyes of the world to this part of the island.
