There are so exciting day trips and experiences like…riding on elephants!! I felt like a little kid in a candy shop during our elephant ride, I was BEYOND excited!!! We took a ride through the jungle, seeing banana trees, cocoa beans, orchids and so many more beautiful things along the way. The nature in Bali is breathtaking!
There are gorgeous temples to visit throughout the island that are full of so much history. “The island of a thousand temples” – that’s what Bali is known as. So where do you start and which temples should you make sure you visit when you are in Bali? Recently, the following were released as the top 4 Bali Temples, so these would be a great place to start your exploring, and of course if you have more time, keep exploring. Unfortunately we were not able to go to 2 of these temples, but we would love to go back one day to explore them.
