Discover the temples and villages that make up the quieter eastern side of Bali. Visit Kusamba, a local fishing village, to see the people mining salt the traditional way. Next stop is Goa Lawah temple, a bat cave that dates back to the 11th century. Continue the tour at Tenganan village, one of Bali's most ancient villages that existed before the arrival of Hinduism. The village is famous for its unique textile with intricate motifs. Here you'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to Karangasem Royal Palace, built by the first King of Karangasem. Nearby Taman Ujung Sukasada was used as a guesthouse of noble families and foreign official guests of the Karangasem Kingdom. The final stop is the old royal bathing palace of Tirtagangga ('water of the Ganges') featuring majestic fountains and pools, and boasting stunning rice paddy views – the perfect end to your East Bali experience.
I have been to Bali a couple of times before but had never explored the East, that was a huge mistake because I loved the places we went on the tour. The amount of bats when you enter the Bat Cave (Gua Lawah) can be a little creepy but they are not dangerous at all. Every location on the tour was great and a local experience of Bali.
