Another one of the main regencies that help make up for the beautiful and perhaps, one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world, Bali is the city of Tabanan. With an expansive area of approximately 839.33km, the city is home to up to 400,000 people hailing from varied backgrounds. While the city is comparatively smaller than most major cities in Bali and the world, Tabanan is divided into ten different districts on the basis of the geographical distinction followed by population accordingly. These ten districts are: Selemadeg, Selemadeg Timur, Selemadeg Barat, Kerambitan, Tabanan district, Kediri, Marga, Baturiti, Penebel and Pupuan.

Each of these destinations has something unique to offer to its visitors. For instance, the Penebel district located in the North of Tabanan consists of wide expanding paddy fields that allows visitors an insight into the local farming culture and rural life of Bali. At the same time, the more developed region of Tabanan such as the main city area offers tourists with experiences that are individualistic only to the city life including the diverse entertainment and adventurous activities as well as the shopping experiences that might not be available anywhere else.

The atmosphere is Bali is quite cool especially given the terraced land that lies against the spell-binding background of the two different mountains which are located quite close to the city of Tabanan. These mountains are, Mount Batukaru and Mount Agung. Lying on an altitude of approximately seven hundred meters, the cool atmosphere is what makes up for a wonderful experience in Tabanan.

However, the main attraction of the place remains to be its agricultural fields that the heads of Tabanan city have especially put in special effort in preserving. The tourism facilities are quite comforting too with hotels, resorts and homestays available just a skip away from all the important place around the city of Tabanan. Enjoy Tabanan’s natural beauty at simple prices and zero complications.

Newly Added Tabanan Experience
Chapala Pothuvaal Overnight Adventure in West Bali
West Bali is simply beautiful and offers an array of adventure activities to indulge in, these days tourism agents have understood our needs and are customizing our trips and giving, I am an adventure lover and so I took up this two day and one night adventure tour to Bali. West Bali is one place that has plenty of adventurous spots in store for us. Some of the best locations over here can never be experienced anywhere else in the world. Apart from indulging in adventure activity this place also gave scope for enjoying Bali nature at its best. We were given plenty of boarding locations to head towards our activity locations, our first day started with visit to the bird conservation, driving alongside the Gilimanuk bay coast line, the best part of the trip was that we got plenty of scope to experience the tropical forests of West Bali, then we enjoyed the plantations locations here and halted at many places to capture the natural beauty alongside. Riding on the muddy roads were super cool, jeeps were provided to us and the trekking part was not only fun but adventurous too. The next day was visit to the waterfalls and local villages. The trek is challenging and needs lot of stamina though. This trip is novel and great in fact. I personally feel that the organizers could have reduced the number of intake, so that the place can be enjoyed in a better way. Well all these being said, the food, stay and service were a great value for our penny spent!
