Bali Island 6D/5N Day 4 Part 2/2: Adventure to the Spectacular View & Hunt of the Best Pork Rib!
January 5, 2013
We had enough exploring water attraction, let’s move on to some adventure driving up to Mount Batur at Kintamani District. Those who came for a relax trip will then view the calm scenery of the Mount Batur by far but for those adventurous ones would climb up to the peak of Mount Batur for sunrise. As much I love sunrise and trekking but not this time. I would love to see the active volcano of Mount Batur surrounded by another stunning crater lake, Lake Batur.
Obviously luck is on our side!! Breathtaking breezy view of Lake Batur with Mount Batur behind it!
The Lake Batur is one of the biggest lake in Bali and it’s definitely a place you shall not missed if you visiting Bali!
Stunning view of the Mount Batur Peak!
Again this very depend to your luck, if you come during raining season then you may only see clouds and tip of the mountain. For best view, come as early as possible in the morning around 8 – 9 am. The view is also a great background for tourist who want to have a breezy lunch! It’s like Cameron Highland to me but without the Tea Plantation. There is plenty of restaurant along the rail where you can enjoy your lunch with the spectacular view of the mountain and lake.
Our Lunch Place!
We decided to have our lunch at Rumah Makan Mutiara because we were attracted by the Special Ikan Bakar.
When we look at the menu, the grilled fish was a little bit too pricey and the buffet look promising.
The Leek & Asparagus taste good but it become cold very fast! The rest are mainly for filling up our tummy!
Well is not the food that we are interested in but the stunning view that came along with the food.

Distance: 2 hour without jam driving from Kuta
Attraction : Mountain & Lake Sightseeing, Mountain Trekking, Mountain Climbing, Drinking Coffee or Tea with Spectacular View
Next we head to Tengalalang Paddy Rice Field. For me I would skip this place as nothing really impressive here. If you have extra time, just drop by for a 10 minutes will do! It’s on the way back from Kintamani to Kuta town!

The view in the day really satisfied our eyes but the food failed to impress our tummy. So we decided to go for something that will ensure our tummy is happy for the rest of the day!
From Kintamani, our driver drive us to Naughty Nuri’s Warung where their Pork Rib which is well known to be Smokinglicious!
Many people around the world visited this Restaurant just for their BBQ Pork Ribs. So do WE!!!!! Look how my Dad enjoy watching the Flaming Pork Ribs!
Naughty Nuri’s Pork Rib
The flesh is so juicy and marinated to perfection! It was grilled to a slight burnt level where it gives smoky aroma and crispy bites on the edge of the rib!!
Smoky Pork Ribs!!
The sticky BBQ sauce coating the ribs was really tasty. We were all eating using our fingers and licking the BBQ gravy over our finger as well as the rib’s bone. It’s Finger Licking Good!! For us, our tummy don’t just feel satisfy with only the Pork Ribs we need more! So Pork Satay will be another good choice!
The BIG Chunk of Pork Satay!
There are using the similar sauce for the pork ribs. This taste equally good but with mouth full of pork flesh! Each bite is satisfying!! My tummy is finally smiling!! Other available Menu!! Naughty Nuri Warung @ Ubud
Location: Jl. Raya Sanggingan, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia (Across the road from Neka Museum)
Like I mention, Day 4 will be a relaxing day so we end the day with a Spa & Body Massage! We have the massage at Arum Spa, Jl By Pass Sunset Road. The massage is good but the ambient was really bad. I can see rat running around the massage room! Seriously avoid visiting this Massage Parlour!!! This is the only part I enjoyed (soaking my leg), after that it’s all disgusting! Thank god the rat did not run over my body else I will not pay a cent! I must not let this ruin our night so me and Thomas decided to walk across our hotel in Sanur to this Chinese Noodle Shop, Mie 88. Out of expectation the Noodle I ordered taste really good! It’s a mixture of Indonesian + Chinese style.
Mee Pansiet Bakso – Wanton & Beef Ball Noodle, RP 24,000
Portion is good, noodle is springy and the flavour is perfect. This end my night really well! For Thomas, the Sweet & Sour fish tasted normal.
