If we wish to have meal in restaurants or to spend the night near this area, we can go to Candidasa, which is only 3 km from this village.
Padang Bai is located in Padang Bai Village, in Manggis District of Karangasem Regency. It is approximately 53 kilometers from Denpasar, about 15 kilometers from Candidasa, and is about 30 kilometers from Amlapura, the capital of Karangasem Regency. Padang Bai lays on Padang bay, a remote bay that has been being functioned as a harbor since long ago. The name Padang Bai was taken from the name of Teluk Padang (Padang bay), which was then changed into Padang Bai by the influence of the Dutch.
Kerta Gosa, also spelled Kertha Gosa and known locally as ‘Taman Gili Kerta Gosa’, is an historical landmark in Semarapura, the main town of the Klungkung regency in East Bali. Kerta Gosa forms part of the Puri Semarapura royal palace complex and features two main structures – a grand hall or the namesake Bale Kerta Gosa with ceilings filled with Kamasan or wayang-style paintings, and the Bale Kambang ‘floating’ hall or pavillion that’s surrounded by a moat.
TIRTA GANGGA WATER PALACE
The Tirta Gangga royal water garden is a favourite retreat in the regency of Karangasem, east Bali. It was built in 1946 during the reign of the late raja of Karangasem, Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem (1887 – 1966). Tirta Gangga saw a series of restorations following the destructive hot showers of volcanic ash from the 1963 Mount Agung eruption.
TAMAN SUKASADA UJUNG
Taman Ujung ‘water palace’, with its complete and official designation of Taman Sukasada Ujung, is located in the village of Seraya in Karangasem regency. It is the sister site of Tirta Gangga, also built by the late raja of Karangasem. The complex consists of various large pools and historic structures set against a backdrop of Mount Agung and the eastern shoreline.
Sidemen Village is East Bali’s panoramic answer to the more famous Jatiluwih rice terraces in West Bali. Here you’ll find a rural countryside down the southern hillsides of Bali’s tallest mountain, Mount Agung. Swathes of paddies and plantations in the village’s countryside are tended by their respective farming communities. The village area is a main destination for day trips through the eastern region. It’s where you can find a ‘real Bali’ scene that offers both beautiful Bali rice paddy landscapes and interesting cultural highlights.
Besakih Temple, known as Bali’s ‘Mother Temple’ for over 1,000 years, sits 1,000 metres high on the southwestern slopes of Mount Agung. Besakih is an artistic and unique complex that comprises at least 86 temples which include the main Pura Penataran Agung (the Great Temple of State) and 18 others. Besakih is the biggest and holiest of the island’s temples and is surrounded by breathtaking and scenic rice paddies, hills, mountains, streams, and more.
Amed Beach in Bali is most likely already in your Bali travel itinerary if you’re a keen diver. The island’s eastern shoreline boasts an underwater playground, and Amed Beach is among the favourite between two main sites (the other being Tulamben, 25km to the north). Amed Beach in Bali was once best known for its traditional salt farming. Soon after its beautiful underwater trove was unveiled, with an historical shipwreck adding to its natural features, Amed Beach became a favourite among divers, particularly Jemeluk Bay.
Lempuyang Temple, locally referred to as Pura Lempuyang Luhur, is one of Bali’s oldest and most highly regarded temples, on par with Besakih (aka the ‘mother temple’ of Bali). It is also believed to predate the majority of Hindu temples on the island. Definitely a highlight on any travel itinerary for the fit and adventurous, the main temple lies at 1,175m above sea level, up on the peak of the namesake Mount Lempuyang in East Bali.
Tulamben in East Bali has drawn avid divers from the world over to this spectacular underwater site, with the USAT Liberty cargo shipwreck as among its main attractions. The laidback and remote village of Tulamben is located in one of the farthest corners of the island, which features an arid overland terrain, much in contrast to the beautifully colourful reefs that await under the surface of the waves.
