On the second day, we decided to hire local tour guide for tour to Kintamani Volcano. They claim it’s something not to be missed once in Bali. We thought, why not since we already here and don’t know what to do right? So here we are on the third day. Touring Bali.
For USD30, we got private tour local tour guide, private car, with everything covered includes parking, fees, etc. In addition it’s not just Kintamani Volcano tour, it’s also a lot of stop by to Barong & Keris Dance, visit to silver and gold processing village, wood carving village, luwak (fox) coffee processing village, terrace paddy sight seeing and Obyek Wisata Temple.
In each village there are lot of same processing center next to each other. When they say it’s wood carving village, you really got to see wood carving center everywhere along the road.
Barong & Keris Dance
We have to pay some extra fees to enter here because it’s not included in the package. Just because it’s on the way and we thought maybe we give it a try since Barong & Keris Dance quite famous here more or less like Kecak Dance famous.

There is no time zone different between Bali and Malaysia but it is earlier by approximately an hour. It get darks at easily around 6pm in the evening and already get lights around 6am in the morning. Still, business starts after 8pm.
We still spend our time in the villa in the morning as the villa has private pool. Only near the afternoon we decide to go out and take a walk around the area.

It is my first passport. It is my first international trip. It is my first non business trip with flight. I don’t know where to park, what is the procedure for travelling, what is to expect at the airport, etc.
Our flight board in LCCT. We had a lot of discussion on either to go to airport by either public transport or car. Considering the expensive parking rates, obviously public transport is much cost effective but we end up went by car as we already kind of late for bus. As we’re not taking public transport, we left home quite early in the morning. Arrived at the airport just nice for check-in.
