The first time I went to Bali, my friends basically locked their eyes on the mature tourist spots of Ubud, Kuta, Seminyak and Jimbaran.
When you are looking forward to Bali, you will come to the most famous Kuta and Ubud and prepare yourself to face the sea and wash your mind.
However, in the third minute of the arrival, you begin to see small flags flying and crowded crowds of tourists from different countries not far away.
If you want to escape from this raging crowd, find a place where you can relax, be quiet, and be comfortable. Canggu, the town of "prepared for the net red", is your best choice.
It is a surfing spot, suitable for beginners, but also suitable for masters;
It has a good pastoral scenery, farmland, low-rise houses, graffiti walls, and a shot is a sense of sight;
It is a gathering place for net red, vegetarian restaurants, organic markets, design shops... the style and personality you want, you can find them here;
It is a hippie paradise, skateboarding, locomotive, rock and roll, all kinds of incitement and carnival.
If you want to spend a quiet holiday, come to this diverse town to explore, here is a different kind of Bali.
// Secret Scenery //
Canggu is considered to be a forgotten secret in Bali. It is only 8 kilometers away from the Tanah Lot Temple, but it has always maintained its own quiet style.
··· The Endless Rice Fields
Remember the scene of Julia Roberts riding a bicycle through the rice fields in "Eat Pray Love"? The location of this scene is the paddy green paddy field.
A large expanse of paddy fields, as the terrain spreads slowly, banana trees grow along the stream, with coconut trees interspersed between them.
When there is no motorcycle passing by, you can hear the sound of the wind blowing rice waves.
Riding along the country roads, passing through the endless paddy fields, all the way to the rice. This is the secret path to Pererenan Beach.
At the end of the road, the most unique scenery is hidden. The green rice fields and the blue sea on the other side will be in sight at the same time.
··· Beautiful Sunset on Black Sand Beach
Because of the volcanic eruption, the beach here is particularly black. Sometimes you just sit on the shore and watch the waves one by one, and you will feel like a dream.
In addition, the beaches of Canggu are all facing the west, so it is a great place to watch the sunset in the evening.
There are also many special bars by the sea. The most popular one is the Old Man's near the black sand beach of Batu Bolong. The sea-blue hand-painted wall at the door is one of its signs.
In the evening, with the lazy rhythm of the music played in the bar, sit on the loungers by the beach, order a cocktail, let the sea breeze slap the hair, and watch the sunset.
··· Colorful Graffiti
Artists from all over the world, combined with the local environment of Canggu, create vivid and interesting graffiti on the gray concrete building facade in the lush rice fields.
