Bali has enchanted visitors for centuries with its unique charm. Nowhere will you find a people more devoted to

times.

Overnight: Bali Oberoi – Garden View Lanai
DAY 05 BALI
At 9:00 AM be ready in the lobby of the Bali Oberoi in preparation for a full day of exploring Bali's eastern
region. Stop at the villages of Gianyar and Klungkung where you can visit the Kertagosa, the ancient
courthouse. Note the traditional kamasan wayang paintings on the ceiling. Each painting has a story, often
depicting the scenes of punishments and rewards in the afterlife.
Afterwards visit the most beautiful and famous temple in Bali, Besakih, The Mother Temple of Bali.
Pura Besakih, is a 1000 year old temple structure which complements the beauty of Bali and its thriving Hindu
culture. Dated from the 14th century, the temple was built on a site where animist rites, ceremonies and feasts
once took place. Set low on the slopes of Mt. Agung, long stone steps lead up through seven rising terraces to
three main temples at its top, each offering homage to the principal Hindu gods of Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu.
Pause for lunch at a local restaurant. Cost of lunch is payable directly to the restaurant.
After lunch visit Goa Lawah and Tenganan, the village of the Aga tribe who have their own culture and live in a
totally different style of architecture, a walled-in isolationist town (which is totally different from any other
community in Bali). Seldom do the young people marry outside the village, which has resulted in zero
population growth. Tenganan is the only place in all of Indonesia where double-ikat cloths are woven. The
cloths are used for ceremonial purposes: weddings, teeth-filings, covering the dead, or for a child's first haircut.
Only about 30 people still weave gringsings on small makeshift breastlooms. (Breakfast)

Lombok is an island in a chain of lesser Sunda Islands. Lombok in many ways lives up to or exceeds its
"unspoiled" reputation with beautiful beaches, enchanting waterfalls, the large, looming volcano of Mount
Rinjani combined with relatively few tourists. Lombok is the paradisiacal tropical island many people dream of
visiting. The people of Lombok have a very restrained and quiet nature which may help explain why Lombok is
less popular in terms of shopping, cuisine, and nightlife than Bali.

Lombok Oberoi is a hideaway with acres of tropical gardens, shimmering ocean and golden sands along a

8th century legend tells of a Javanese priest, Rsi Markendya, who meditated at the confluence of two rivers at
the Ubud locality of Campuan. It is here that he founded the Gunung Lebah temple on the valley floor which
