Uluwatu is one of the major temples in Bali. Located on the Bukit peninsula, at the South-West of Bali, it is also known as the monkey temple as there are plenty living there. Dominating the sea, perched on a cliff, the Uluwatu temple stands out on the clear sky. Specifically appreciated for the sunset, Uluwatu is for sure one of the beauties of Bali. Be careful of the monkeys, though, as they have become aggressive during the year 2011: they will most likely steal your sunglasses, camera or even sandals which end up torn and eaten here and there on the ground.

Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is, without a hesitation, the most famous temple in Bali. Visited by hundreds of people every day, Tanah lot has unfortunately been perverted by an ever increasing tourism and consumerism. As a matter of fact, one has to go along a street bordered by various shops to get to the holly temple. Though it is holly, there is no need to wear the traditional sarong  not cover your body (a simple short is tolerated). It’s a shame for such an important place for the Balinese. However, you need to visit it…

But that’s what’s good!
