The tanah lot temple complex is located near the sea. According to my guide, most people usually visit the temple in the afternoon to watch the sunset. So, i went in the afternoon. True enough, there were hoardes of tourists in the temple. Despite the number of tourists, the temple remained beautiful. The huge waves provide a dramatic backround to... More

Go and enjoy the view by the sea. It is worth it. I went there during low tide so there's lots of space to move around.

Was the first place we visit since we touched down in Bali. It was during high tide and you wouldn't be able to cross over as the waves crashing through are pretty rough. For the photo enthusiast, you would really want to bring your tripods as there are many stations that allows you to snap beautiful photos. At certain times,... More

If i remember correctly the entrance fee per person is 30K IDR, plus an extra few K for parking. Not a very hard climb down to the temple. as many have stated here, it was rather crowded when we arrived at the site but still the view was breathtaking. went an hour and a half before sunset so that made...

Enjoyed the walk to the temple and watching the sunset from a vantage point. Just let the time toll by and relax. Don't spend too much time shopping.

This is a wonderful place for photographers! If you plan to come then come early to avoid the crowds. There is an entrance fee + a fee for the car entrance. On the way to the temple you will find a lot of shops and small restaurants. You cannot actually go inside the temple. This right is only reserved for... More

This temple is very picturesque from afar. It is completely surrounded by water at high tide. The best time to go is around 5pm, so it gets a bit crowded. Don't pay admission. The monks require you to undergo a Hindu cleaning ritual and then only let you half-way up the steps. I went up and was sadly disappointed. The... More

Its makes me excited to go there because on the streets there is like a... More
