To The White Sandy Beaches Once More

Finally, it has been 3 years since I have had a proper vacation. This year, I made a promise to treat myself to a well rested vacation. This time around, I will be taking a 5 days break, yes, pathetic huh, to call that 5 days of siesta – a vacation. My last vacation was a 21 days of well travelled around Scotland and Paris; an expensive vacation indeed.

In a few weeks time, I will be heading south to the mystical island of Bali; a Hindu majority population. This is going to be my second trip to Bali; the previous trip in 2003. Many of my friends have asked me why am I still keen on Bali especially when it has been bombed twice; they suggested holidays in Maldives instead. If you have been to Bali, you will understand why I’m going back there as opposed to any other beach destinations; mainly the people and the culture – it’s fascinating.

I’ve planned out my trip. Over the 5 days, I shall leisurely visit 3 places in Bali that has been nominated as Unesco’s World Heritage sites; the Pakerisan riverbanks near Gianyar, Jatiluwih’s terraced paddy fields and the Taman Ayun Temple of Mengwi’s. Apart from visiting these places, I will want to go diving for mola-mola, south of Bali.

Ever since the bombings, Bali has virtually quiet down. Traders and tour operators have slashed prices downwards to capture as many suckers tourists as possible. At the same time, quality of service keeps improving to maintain high tourist satisfaction; in a bid to encourage repeated business and word of mouth advertisements. I’m getting impatient; just can’t wait to get to the white sandy beaches once more.
