Bali in June: Tanjung Benoa and Deluang Sari Turtle Farm


Hello, guys! My 5D4N Bali trip was nothing but fun, fun, fun and more fun!!! Gotta say that although I'm physically back in Penang, but mentally, my mind is still far from where I am now. Just a few more days or perhaps weeks, for it to crawl back into my head. LOL.

I've been suffering from severe lack of sleep since day 1 of our trip. There were seven of us who took midnight bus down to KL. As crazy as it sounds, we arrived KL Sentral around 5-ish, had breakfast and napped in McDonald's at the bus station, then hopped on the bus again (roughly an hour plus journey) to KLIA 2.

I napped in the bus, napped in Starbucks at the airport, napped wherever and whenever possible. It was plain EXHAUSTING not being able to have a good night sleep! Like a walking dead I was before catching the afternoon flight to Bali. Thank God I slept well in the plane.

At nightfall, we touched down at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali to be picked up by Pasek (our friendly tour guide), followed by yummilicous dinner at Ayam Tulang Lunak Malioboro (the chicken was fried to crispy so you could eat the bones and all), checked-in to our cozy villa, and that's pretty much it about day 1.

On day 2, first destination on our schedule was Tanjung Benoa. We came after breakfast to thrill ourselves with a fun bunch of marine sports and beach activities.

The water was too shallow so we had to get out of our boat and walked to the shore.

Welcome to Deluang Sari Turtle Farm.

Aww, look at these turtles!!! very adorable but heavy creatures. I was so afraid that it might slip out of my hands when holding one of them.

Now, let's see some big turtles, shall we?

"Dilarang duduk di atas penyu" simply means, "Do not sit on the turtles".

It was my virgin experience, patting and interacting with turtles in such close distance.

The 70 year-old aka the oldest turtle around here =)

Moving on to see more wild lives. I saw baby crabs crawling in and out of the sandy surface.

All the marine sports and beach activities stopped as soon as we made it back from the turtle farm around 2.30 pm. No photos of para-sailing, flying fish or the banana boat ride we did earlier, sadly. Only video recorded in a DVD which they wanted to charge us for USD $50 on top of the USD $105 we paid per person. We got it for free anyway, hehe.

So calm and peaceful contrary to the loud and happening vibe before noon.
