Last year, I went to Bali for holiday. I stayed there for only three days. I went there by bus with my family. I left at 3 p.m. from Malang and I arrived there at 7 a.m. That was a longer journey. Usually, we could arrive at Bali in 11 hours, but our journey took in 16 hours. So, we got additional 4 hours. It happened because there was a falling tree on the way to Bali. Therefore, our bus could not move and a traffic jam could not be avoided. But finally we arrive there safely. The first day we did in Bali was we went to the hotel to take a rest. After we felt better, we went to Tanjung Benoa, the first beach that we visited. In Tanjung Benoa, we played water sports, such as paragliding and jets ski. Not only that, we felt so amazed with the beautiful beach and the heat of the sun. The following place was GWK or Garuda Wisnu Kencana. Over there, we looked at a big statue of Balinese God. In the second day, we went to a traditional village in Trunyan. In Trunyan, there were many corpses of Trunyan’s people that were not buried, but they were only put on the ground with the treasures. Thus, we found people’s craniums, bones, and many others scattered around there. Not only that, we found bad smells from the corpse, so scary moment. In the afternoon, we went to Dreamland, the beautiful beach around Bali. I felt comfortable with the situation over there. We saw a remarkable sunset. We did not forget to take pictures of the fantastic scenery. At third day, we went to a traditional foods art and shop centre in Bali. We bought some Bali’s traditional foods and handmade, for example, a statue, a painting, “dodol Bali” and many others. We also learned about traditional rituals that Balinese people do, such as making a ritual offering and making a special food for their family. In the evening, we watched traditional dances from Bali, for example, Kecak and Pendet dances. When we watched the dance, we felt so surprised with the moment, especially when one of the dancers was possessed. But, overall I like these dances very much. The next day, we went back to Malang. It was a sad moment because I thought that Bali is a beautiful island and I did not want to go from there. But, we must go back to Malang to continue our activities. I think it is true that Bali is a famous tourism destination and resembles a heaven in the world, because you can find everything over there, like beautiful places, beaches, delicious foods, friendly people and creative handmade. So, I think having three days experiences in Bali was an unforgettable journey.
