Get a close up look at the wonders of Bali’s highlands with a full day tour that begins in a monkey forest and ends with learning about batik. Your first stop is Sangeh Monkey Forest, a 34-acre sanctuary for hundreds of monkeys. Next, is Lake Bratan. Located almost 4,000 feet above sea level, this sparkling lake sits in the crater of Mt. Catur. Perched on the shore is Ulun Danu Temple, featured on the country’s 50,000 IDR note. Next, is a photo stop overlooking the “twin lakes” of Bali followed by lunch and a visit to Pasar Candi Kuning- a fruit and vegetable market. Your final destination is Tohpati, famous for its fine batik. During your visit watch how the fabric is dyed, the pattern is outlined, how the wax is applied and dyed. Before leaving for your ship, you can shop for souvenirs, gifts and fine Balinese crafts.
Make a photo stop at a viewing area where you can look out over the “twin lakes,” Buyan Lake, the smallest lake in Bali, and Tamblingan Lake.
