Bali August 2012 Trip: Part 3

Part 3 means up bright and early because on day 3 we went to Bali Safari & Marine Park! The ride itself to reach the destination took about an hour. Baby A slept the whole way there.

The park itself was amazing. International class. But of course. After getting our tickets at the entrance, we took the shuttle bus to the main park. Everything was orderly and super clean. Except of course some ignorant locals who tried to cut lines. Of course I had to glare and snap at them, making them fully embarrassed.

It was scorching super hot that day, the wind would help to ease the heat occasionally. I slather baby A with sun block often. Since it was almost lunch time, after we stroll around the park deciding what to do, we settled in UMA restaurant. The Italian food were delicious, surprisingly.

After lunch, we did the safari journey. With a safari bus, we drove around the park seeing lots of beautiful animals they had. It was quite short compare to the one in Taman Safari. But I reckon the animals were a lot more taken care of in the Bali park as they're all well groomed and looked fat haha.

After the safari journey, I'm in the mood for some cooling snack. I decided on the soft ice cream cone near the giant elephant statue. It was delicious! Then off we went to the marine side of the park. It was a very small aquarium space. But I heard they're expanding the marine area soon, so that's good to know.

It was around 4 in the afternoon when we're done with the whole Bali Safari thing. It didn't make any sense if we return to the hotel if we planned on having dinner somewhere around Seminyak area. So we drove to the area and had a little R&R at The Junction (located just across Seminyak Square). They have a super delicious Nutella Crepes! I swear. I didn't took any pictures because soon as the waiter handed me the plate, I devoured them in nano seconds. Afterwards we took a bit of a stroll around the area before heading to our next destination: La Sal Spanish restaurant. Excellent tapas and paellas. Great ambiance too. Worth a try.

That's all for day 3. Until part 4 of our vacation story!
