Why the Tanah Lot Sunset Tour is a must-do on your Bali tour package
Tanah Lot is easily one of the most beautiful and picturesque Hindu temples in the world. Tanah Lot means “land in the sea” in Balinese. This amphibious temple in the south coast of Bali is a holy place and an absolute must on your Instagram feed.
Tanah Lot at sunset just takes the beauty of this place to the next level, which is why the Tanah Lot Sunset Tour is an absolute must-do on your Bali tour package
The best time to visit Tanah Lot in Bali is mid-September to mid-December which is the low season.
This half day tour stops at 2 other tourist attaractions before reaching Tanah Lot.
Taman Ayun Temple
The Taman Ayun Temple is a 17th century Hindu temple which is surrounded by gorgeous beautiful water gardens located in the village of Mengwi, 17km from Denpasar. In Balinese, Taman means garden and Ayun means beautiful – if you ask me, this simplistic name, doesn’t do justice to the beautiful ponds and gardens that surround the temple.
Sangeh Monkey Forest or Alas Kedaton Temple
Tours take you to one of these unusual attractions. The commonality between both these places are the monkeys.
The Alas Kedaton temple is in the middle of the tourists and the devotees believe that the monkeys protect the temple and the devotees from bad influences.
The Sangeh Monkey Forest is a sanctuary for grey long tailed macaques. Although, there are many monkey forests across Bali, the Sangeh Monkey Forest is the most popular.
Either place, let’s you enjoy the sight of Bajrang Bali’s more mischievous cousins run riot.
While the sun sets in to the ocean, you can watch as land and sea fight over this beautiful temple. The waves keep crashing in trying to force the land to give it up and the land holds firm as it doesn’t want to let go of this pearl in it’s crown. While you the sun settles down after watching another day of this eternal tug of war, played out by the elements, there is only one winner – You!
Don’t miss the Tanah Lot Sunset tour, it’s a half day tour which will give you memories for a life time.
