Tips for you
if you dont want the hustle and crowd of Kuta or Legian but the touch of Bali culture then Kintamani is the place..first of all, being on an elevation of 1000m approx it enjoys a comfortable weather... we went on a cloudy day ( a long self-drive from Nusa Dua approx 1.5 hrs) and the weather was mesmerising.lovely cold breeze and drizzles in between.The road along the entire stretch of the caldera gives you lovely view of the Lake Batur and the volcano.. you can go down to the lake and do trips to village on the other side of the lake or to the volcano but dont stay near the lake..hotel facilities are far better on the caldera and so is the view..plenty of hotels to stay (but most of them dont come up in hotel websites so do a thorough search and you will get one).. there are many restaurants along the caldera where you can enjoy the view of the volcano and have delicious food at reasonable price.. kintamani was so beautiful that when i reached there i regretted that why didnt i plan to stay here for at a night...don't waste time in kuta or legian.. wherever you stay..plan at least to stay one night in kintamani and you will experience the charm..even Ubud is near from Kintamani so there are plenty of tourist hotspots nearby.. And if you want adventure then you can climb up the volcano but only with local bali guide as per their law.. there is this temple in Kinatamani on the main road, you can visit if you want but not worth if you have been to Besakih..entry fees was 30000 for 2.. and dont forget to wear sarong... better you buy one on the first day in Bali as because you will need it in every temple you go and bali is full of beautiful temples.. If i go bali again, kintamani will definitely be on my priority list to stay at...
We drove to Kintamani Higland from Nusa Dua. It was a long drive and you have to travel on a single carriageway with lots of scooters and trucks on the road, so do be careful if you drive. We got there quite late but the view from the top is very nice, it feels like as if you are inside the cloud. Be aware, once you get there you will be surrounded by ladies selling Sarongs which you have to wear if you want to go to the temple. Do bargain with them. To get the best view, you have to go to the temple. Try to get there early for best experience.
