Pura Gunung Kawi Tampaksiring

One of my favorite temples in Bali is Pura Gungung Kawi Tampaksiring.  Despite the fact that no one warned or prepared me for the hundreds of steps one needs to walk to get to this magical area, I still rate this one of the most memorable attractions in Bali. The path was very scenic so we stopped a few times to…

Here is my review of my Thai Airlines…

Nalu Bowls and Shelter Cafe Seminyak
