Upside Down World Bali
Upside Down World Bali adds to the growing list of fun indoor activities on the island, where you can enter seven specially designed rooms whose décor and furniture are simply, and deliberately, the wrong way up. It is where you can enjoy a fun day out with your partner or friends and strike many whacky poses, only to end up as gravity-defying stunts in photos. Selfie sticks don’t really work here… but don’t worry, friendly staff are on standby to help you with shots.
Among the most favourite theme rooms at Upside Down World Bali are the master bedroom, the kitchen and dining room, the laundry, and the 90-degrees ‘Balinese room’ which features ornate wooden carvings and antique furniture. This room is perfect for couples, who often share a slightly intimate pose, but silly nonetheless, where one sits on the sofa while holding a cup, and the other scales the wall ‘pouring’ from a teapot.
Upside Down World Bali is definitely a place to take some interesting pictures, however, it always helps if you know how to set up poses and take the best angles. Bring a tripod. And, always try to ask the staff who can guide you through the disorientating rooms, suggest the most common poses that people take if you can’t think of your own, and even take the shot for you. Two of its rooms feature 3D art. Entrance is IDR 100,000 for adults and IDR 50,000 for kids with a maximum height of 1.2m. Upside Down World Bali is halfway on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai, the main street heading towards Sanur from Kuta.
Adult $10 AUD
Kid $5 AUD

One of Bali’s most well-known fine dining restaurants, Sardine serves French cuisine in a setting of green rice paddies and banana trees. The restaurant itself sits in a bamboo pavilion and serves up fresh and healthy organic produce from the farm.
It has the most beautiful setting and the food is fantastic, mostly seafood and french inspired with traditional Balinese meals also on the menu we loved the views of the rice fields from the dining area.
Sardine sources vegetables from its own organic garden. More than half the restaurant is dedicated to a working rice field, allowing tourist to walk around the rice field. Sardine has a big wow factor from the second you arrive Highly recommend.

Kunyit Restaurant is the ideal introduction to the traditional delicacies of Bali and Indonesia, providing a sensory dining experience that specializes in local cuisine. “Kunyit” means turmeric, which is one of the key ingredients incorporated into many of the dishes served. The Bali Aga influence, meanwhile, is experienced not only in the traditional family style of dining, where a selection of dishes are served to be shared, but also in touches of the architecture and décor of this comfortable, contemporary venue.
Kunyit also offers various entertainments for its guests during the week with Fire Dance shows every Wednesday and flavors of Balinese and Indonesian cuisine with Bali’s marvelous Barong and Legong Dance performance every Saturday. All performances start from 7 p.m. onwards and the famous Megibung package pictured above is available every day during lunch and dinner only $35 per couple which includes dessert.
This was our first time trying traditional Megibung and we love the experience at Kunyit Resturant. The staff were super friendly and keen to share and teach us the stories behind Megibung.
At Kunyit Restaurant, there’s two type of Megibung that you can choose from: Tenganan and Bali Aga. Each offers different specialties.
The Tenganan set starts with three types of satay, followed with Komoh Ikan soup, then 6 items from fish, chicken and prawns served on a big tray. Meanwhile, the Bali Aga set contains pork.
For starters you receive two types of satay, followed with Cramcam Ayam soup and 6 items. Each set is served with two types of sambal and white and red rice options, plus a platter of traditional dessert pictured above on the right.
What we loved the most about Megibung at Kunyit is the whole experience. From the detailed explanation and back story of each dish and Megibung. To the staff providing a small bowl which the pour water to wash our hands with, this is because Megibung are often enjoyed with our hands. This is a experience usually reserved for the elites. Overall the Kunyit Restaurant is the ideal for families to be introduced to traditional delicacies and customs of Bali and Indonesia and we highly recommend you try it.
Jl. Kartika Plaza, Tuban, BALI - INDONESIA
Once a sleepy village with a quiet, beautiful sweep of beach, Kuta today has become a popular beach destination in its own right, alive with tourists from all over the world, swimming, surfing or sunbathing by the beach. Others, casually dressed in shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops stroll along its main road, shopping around or enjoying meals at its many open air restaurants. When in Kuta you know that you are in a holiday town, and people here are in a holiday mood. "Bali time" as the locals say relaxed and care free
Back in the 1960’s the only hotel was the Kuta Beach Hotel, but soon without much planning, Kuta developed rapidly into a mecca for surfers and backpackers, while the high end market preferred to stay at the more sedate Sanur village on the opposite side of the peninsula. With time, Kuta’s popularity grew, and shops, restaurants, discos hotels, - from the simple to the exclusive - sprang up along the main road from Kuta to Legian, catering to the ever increasing holiday crowd, that not only included international tourists but also domestic visitors from Jakarta and other big cities.
If you love bargains than Poppies Lane I and II are for you, Poppies lanes are two separate narrow streets, both of which connect from Kuta beach road to Legian and Kuta's nightclubs hub, all within an easy 10 or 15-minute stroll.
Both lanes have become popular walking streets lined with shops, bars, restaurants and where you can get a good massage starting from around $5 AUD for 1 hour. Beware of the traffic on your walks though, as Poppies Lane II also serves as a shortcut for scooters, cars and taxis.
Our kids love bargains as do i and save up their money to buy thing when we go markets ect once we started walking the streets of poppies lane they couldn't believe they found Nike school bags for $10, Adidas trainers for $20 and watches for $3 all cheap knock-offs of course but never the least it kept them happy and more money in there pockets for ice-cream.
Knock-off Rolexes and cheap designer bags are a regular sight here, so shopping in Kuta does offer a unique shopping adventure. Prices vary, but with the wide range of choices, you are bound to come across a bargain deal or an item that suits your budget.
Clothing: below you will see Julia's shop on Poppies lane 2 honest prices and very friendly
No.33, Kuta phone: 087 760 063 389
Fresh Fruit Stalls
There are lots of great fresh fruit stalls around bali with differnt tropical fruits you dont normally see at home. I suggest avoiding already cut or prepared fruits and always wash before eating.
Keep your eye out for the famous doughnut man. He travels around Legian / Kuta on a bike and sells the most delicious donuts for only 5,000 IDR (0.50 cents AUD) each.
Moving around Kuta its very fun and simple. You can go around on foot or you can rent a bike or motorcycle for around $8 a day.
At the end of Poppies Lane II, on Jalan Legian is a memorial for all the people that lost their lives in the Bali bombings in 2002. All the names of the people who died are listed by the country that they came from. Directly across the road from the memorial is the empty site of the Sari Club which was one of the 2 clubs that was bombed.
There are plenty of taxis that can take you to Kuta beach. You can rent these by the meter or by the hour. Taking your own car is not recommended as parking here is very tight.

our BALI TRAVEL TIPS
Getting to Bali
Customs and Etiquette
These tips are quite basic and easy to follow and will make a huge difference to your first experience of Bali.
Everybody has their favourite places to shop here is a list of the ones that we love
Places we highly recommend:
Taxi: I know i may sound like a broken record and have mentioned Blue bird heaps of times but they are the best!, I suggest that you down load their App (my bluebird) prior to arrival it was a life saver for me. You can book a taxi and cancel it at any time without having to add you location which is great if you have no idea where you are. They only take a few minutes to come and get you. It also give you an estimated price.
Money exchange: if you need to change money ensure you do it at a proper exchange place. The smaller ones that are hidden within other shops are not always 100% trust worthy. There is one at the corner of Poppies lane 1 that is fantastic. Just ensure that you recount your money before leaving any exchange place.
Did you buy too many clothes? I always do, I used to just go and get another suitcase except this time I discovered a fabulous company called 'We suck Bali' who will come to your hotel room with vacuum bags and for only $6.50 AUD (65,000IDR) each bag. It was the best $6.50 I have ever spent. You can contact him
via his Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/wesuckbali/ )
Washing service: For just $3 a kilo Nikki spa & laundry will come and collect your washing in the morning and return it at night contact her via her face book page ( https://www.facebook.com/nikki.spa.laundry/ )
Tattoo: There is a fantastic parlor called Leon's Holiday ink in Legian they are fantastic, Clean and reasonably priced. Address: JL Benasari No.22 Kuta, kebupaten Badung,
There are a few discount supermarkets that locals buy their goods that they sell on the streets that are pretty cheap here are a couple that I went to: Krishna, Bagus, batahari, nurmala, Gelael, Batubalan.
Other bits and bobs:
Also on a quick note don't bother taking any drinks to the airport, as soon as you arrive it gets confiscated then once you are in the main food area you can purchase a drink but ensure that you drink it because prior to sitting at your gate there is another security check and drinks will be confiscated then again.
Flights: If you are flying Jetstar please note that some of the aircraft do not accept cash you can only purchase using a credit or debit card.
Do not leave Australia without at least 2 bottles of sunscreen and 2 bottles of insect repellent if you buy it in Bali it will set you back around $25AUD each, I learnt the hard way the first time.
Don't be scared to barter, they always say the first price quite high because they are expecting you to barter. My trick is to tell them a price a few dollars under what you want to spend eventually you should get it for what you really want to spend, if they don't budge don't be afraid to walk away you will find the exact same thing elsewhere.
Ensure that the day you arrive in Bali your passport is still valid for at least 6 months or you will be rejected entry. For example if you arrive on January 1st your passport must be valid until 1st of July.
La Plancha, is a colorful cafe restaurant on Mesari Beach at Seminyak’s southern end, the splashes of colours throughout its two-level structure stand out from all the other cafes along the shoreline.
The menu is full of tasty grills and Spanish cuisine. But most of all we fell in love with the large and colourful umbrellas by its comfy beanbags around mini tables laid out on the sand.
Living up to its name, La Plancha (literally ‘the grill’) serves a variety of Spanish and barbecued foods. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the cafe is a perfect for morning beach strolls, a day out in the waves or for fun evening gatherings. with live bands and DJs on given days.

KUTA BEACH IN BALI
Kuta Beach is located on the western side of the island and is considered Bali's most famous beach resort destination. Kuta Beach is also minutes away from the Airport. The nearby resorts of Legian and Seminyak are all within close walking distance. Once a simple, rustic and quiet fishing village, Kuta Beach has witnessed a transformation over the past years due to the rapid growth of visitors, beachcombers and art lovers from nearby Australia.
Expatriates also helped pioneer surfing in Kuta, as well. Although a rather frenzied traffic scene has become commonplace and Kuta Beach continues to attract thousands of visitors every year with its unique charm. During the peak season from July to August and the holiday season for Christmas and New Year, Kuta Beach is regularly fully-booked by travellers looking forward to a pleasant and affordable Bali escape.
Visitors can do activities such as parasailing, banana boat trips or surfing. Women offer traditional Indonesian massage on the beach and others plaiting hair or trying to sell souvenirs ect.
The five km long sandy stretch of Kuta is arguably the best beach front in Bali. The beach is safe, partially clean, well-maintained, although the beach vendors remain annoying pushing to sell massages, hair braiding, cigarettes and surf boards.
The long wide stretch of sand is often full of sunbathers and and surfers. As you move north along the beach to first Legian and then Seminyak it becomes progressively quieter and less frenetic.
People gather towards the evening to witness Bali's amazing sunsets
In the mornings you regularly see Balinese people throwing offerings into the sea, The best spot is the temple right next to the beach about 200-250m to the north of the Hard Rock Hotel.

On our drive to the rice fields we stop the coffee plantations to sample some local coffee blends. These included the world prized Luwak coffee, when i heard coffee i was in heaven untill i found out it coffee that has been pooped out of a cat! Yes i know sounds disgusting but surprisingly its not as bad as it sounds.
Firstly The civet cat eats the coffee cherries, the cherries go through the digestive track and fermentation occurs, and then they pass through the intestines and eventually pooped out. The coffee cherries are then collected up, cleaned, lightly roasted and brewed, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness, widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world.
After our garden walk, we were seated under gazebo and our guide offered us a free tea & coffee tasting. We had so much fun tasting the different flavours example , and learning about the medicinal benefits the teas have. After hearing all that we had to give Poop coffee a try, sample's of the (poop) coffee as the kids call it cost us around $5 a cup and it wasn't that bad we found it to be smooth and not as strong or bitter.
Entry is Free includes guide tour of the process and Tea and coffee samples
if your interested in tasting the Luwak Coffee sample cup cost $5
and you can purchase some at the store.

Without a doubt the Elephant Safari Park in Taro is a MUST for visitors to Bali, and is the ONLY complete elephant experience in the world - making it truly unique.
The Elephant park is the only dedicated elephant rescue park in Bali and for the last 20 years has been involved in the upkeep and breeding of the 27 elephants that were originally saved from government camps in Sumatra. These elephants have now successfully bred naturally to add 4 babies to our herd which showcases the parks commitment to both saving and protecting these endangered species, all of which would have died, had they been left in the Sumatran camps. The owners are fully committed to giving the elephants a comfortable and happy existence for the remainder of their lives as well as educating the public to the dangers faced by this endangered elephants, due to the devastating deforestation happening in their homeland.
