What You Can Expect

Private Tour: East Bali Highlights

Private Tour: East Bali Highlights

Start your morning with pickup by your private guide at your hotel. Get comfortable in your air-conditioned private vehicle and take in the scenery as you motor over to the eastern side of Bali.

Stop first in Sidemen where you get fantastic photo ops of emerald green rice paddies that cascade down the rolling hills and the volcanic Mount Agung standing tall on the horizon. Then visit a fruit plantation to taste a favorite Indonesian fruit called salak, also known as snakefruit due to its scaly reddish-brown outer peel.

Next up, spend time at the magnificent Tirta Gangga Water Palace, one of the region's top attractions. The last king of the Karangasem Empire built the water palace in the 1940s and 50s. The name Tirta Gangga translates as 'Water of the Ganges' and indicates the sacredness of this site to the Hindu Balinese. Admire decorative ponds, statues, plants and fountains that surround the palace, then take in stunning views of the ocean and rice paddies from town. Then stop for lunch at the elegant Tirta Ayu restaurant, which features fantastic garden views and delicious Indonesian cuisine.

Afterward, head south through the pretty coastal town of Candidasa en route to the village of Tengana, which is inhabited by Balinese Aga people who lived here long before the Majapahit Empire arrived from Java to colonize the island in the 14th century. Aga traditions are strictly maintained in this traditional village, making its architecture, weaving and batik textiles distinctive. Tour the small village on foot with your guide for a closer look at these traditions.

Departing from Tengana, return along the scenic coastal road to your hotel where your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.
