Honeymooners, Myuu and Jun-Jun from Japan are today’s reporters for the Lembongan tour in Bali!
Myuu: “We wanted to visit somewhere we can experience real Bali! The ocean in Lembongan Island is famous as beautiful, so we chose this tour!”
They left hotel in Kuta at 8:30am. It will take about 1 hour by boat from Bali to the island. The total 15 people from from China and Europe including them were in the tour. The weather is perfect, so it is going to be a perfect day at the beach!
Jun-Jun: “Even many people from Bali haven’t visited Lembongan Island, so it was a rare experience, I thought.”
Myuu: “The explanations of the guide were very clear and we could learn a lot especially about the plants and the problems from the grobal warming.”
They went through Mangrove forests by a small boat with oars. This is the real eco tour in the nature!
“When we were going inside of the forests, we found a tiny branch with a seed on which was a baby mangrove. It falls off from a mother mangrove tree and is usually carried away and grow in an other areas. It’s sometimes stuck on the roots and grows. However, many babies are often rotted in the water after being carried away. Mangrove is also known as “Walking Forest” since the babies are carried away and grow.
We took and planted the baby in the area which gets many sunshine. It made us helping keeping the forest.”
Dive into the ocean after putting rushgards and snorkeling equipments! They went to the snorkeling point by boat.
Myuu: “The ocean was very clear, so we could see the bottom of the sea. It was exciting to see clownfishes! We really enjoy the snorkeling for one hour!”
The water of ocean in Bali on February is not cold, because the outside temperature is high. By the way, they put swimwears under the clothes at the hotel, because they knew they would do the snorkeling.
After the snorkeling and going back to the resting place, they swam in the pool! All the exciting activities made them hungry for sure, so they had Mie Goreng and Chicken Burger for lunch around 2:00pm.
Jun-Jun: “Mineral water was included in the lunch. We could order beer, but it was about 20% more expensive than Bali due to the transportation, so we didn’t.”
The island had many tourists especially from Europe who were enjoying the relaxing time with beer!
Myuu: “It will depend on a guide whether the tour wil be good. Our guide had many knowledge and was well organized. Also, he could speak Japanese, so we could learn many things about Bali which made us happy!”
From the morning to the early evening, they could spend a great time in the nature! It had everything such as Fun, Recommended, and of course Tiredness (LOL), so was a perfect monitor experience!!
