Located in the middle of bamboo forest of Payangan, this luxury resort Padma Ubud is the secluded sanctuary that sets the distance apart from the city centre of Ubud. It’s ideal for those who seek for a calm and relaxed getaway in nature. I wouldn’t mind getting stuck there as there are so many things to see and explore in this large resort.
There are so many cool places in Seminyak especially at Jalan Kayu Aya- Here you can spot some famous cafes, restaurants, shops, coffee corners, and cocktail bars. One place that makes me keep coming back is Kim Soo, a concept design store which sells a huge collection of homewares curated from natural and local sources. Not only a heaven for interior inspiration, this chic store also has lots of instagramable spots!
This was the first time Victor visited my hometown, Indonesia and I was trying to beat his surprise on our French Riviera road trip previously (see the post) by bringing him to our paradise, Bali. It was a successful mission, at the end of our trip he said this was the best trip we’ve ever had. I am totally pleased! This burst of excitement also got into me as it was ages ago when I visited Bali- most probably during my school field trip. So pardon me if I acted like a tourist and freaked out every-time I saw the infinity pools.
I had an amazing time participating in ‘Kampoeng Molenvliet West’ photo hunting organised by Payoe Pitoe. Throwback to colonial era, back then when all residents from different backgrounds, ethnics and races blended in society. That was the issue they were trying to bring up and remind us, the greatness of diversity. We may have different a religion or culture but we do respect each other. The world would be a better place without hate and war and we wish to live safety and peacefully.
