Tampaksiring: Travel in Bali
So you want to visit Bali for some good rest and relaxation. The region of Tampaksiring is a perfect place to find it. Many visitors to Ubud City find themselves immersed in daily thrills, then up late exploring the plentiful nightlife.
If you are seeking to admire local customs and cultures, as well as enjoy all that Bali has to offer, then don't worry, there are still many activities and beautiful places to stay and to visit outside the city center.
Picture calm rice fields and remote winding roads only minutes from the hectic life inside the city. I am referring to the majestic region of Tampaksiring. Named for the slope of the mountain where the town stands today, said to have been created by the giant footstep of a king named Mayadenawa.
Best known for its temples like the Pura Tirta Emple’s healing waters, this area is also renowned for its pre-colonial kingdom and 6 modern presidential palaces.
Enjoy temples like Tirta Empul and Gunung Kawi or tour the Tegalalang Rice terraces on bicycle. One guest at the private Villa, Tirta Indah, says, “The most spectacular journey through village rice paddies lead to an oasis of affordable luxury in this beautiful Villa. Just moments away from the hustle and bustle of busy Ubud, this Villa allows an escape to the hills.
Close to the magical springs of Tirta Empul, I found a refuge in this comfortable, clean, well staffed, charming Villa. Take a step out through the organic garden, and enjoy the village of regal yet still humble, Tampaksiring. Wander through rice paddies on a moonlit night and discover fireflies. This Villa is perfect for groups and extended families. Fully equipped kitchen, although you don't need to lift a finger, unless you want to, and extremely comfortable beds. This is a beautiful retreat.”
