Private Tour: Best of East Bali

After being picked up at your hotel (select resort areas only), your private day trip starts with your first stop at the ancient court palace of Bali: Kertha Gosa, about a 1-hour drive. Wander around this pavilion, where you'll learn about ancient court rituals, and take a look inside the building to admire the unique paintings on its enormous ceiling. After this introduction to a bit of Balinese culture, continue to the white-sand beach of Kusamba to meet the last remaining salt-farming community on Bali. If you're curious about local life on the island and want to learn more about traditional ways of farming, this is your chance. Your private guide will tell you about this old community and introduce you to some of the locals. Next, head to Ujung Water Palace, followed by the village of Tenganan, known for its beautiful traditional clothing worn by locals. Between these two visits, you'll stop at a restaurant for lunch (own expense). Your day trip ends after leaving Tenganan for the drive back to your hotel.
