Hi all,

Just would like to share with you an amazing place to visit in Bali.
Sidemen
Located on the East side of the Island, you can stop by on your way up North (Amed for example) and those looking for having a peaceful and relaxing time won't be disappointed.
The place is a perfect mix of mountains, rivers and rice fields. The hotels & guesthouses are all very charming and not too expensive (for now...).
If you find the right hotel, you will have a "bungalow" in the middle of these rice fields. And as the rainy season is about to start, then it's the perfect place to be as the rain matches perfectly with the landscapes and makes the atmosphere even cozier and enjoyable.

The setting is beautiful, the people are genuinely nice and helpful (that tends to disappear in more touristic parts of the island)!
Since the first time i discovered it, it became one of my mandatory stops when travelling around the island of gods!

Have a look and enjoy!

I agree with you CLovish
the east and north of the bali is facinatiing but unoftuatelly not alot of vistors aware of such places as most of tours concenrated on west,south and central f the Island.
I had the chance to drive by my scooter along with friend last week from my home in Seminyak to Besakih passing by ubud and returning back through the south side of the Island . we have so much fun and enjoyed to the max the views .Am planning now to go even far to the east coast of the Island then the north on my way going back to home ' like half moon shape "
thanks for the post.

Thats true - not many people know where the real Bali still exist without traffic jams, crowds of tourists. Even some wonderful sites are still secluded like Yeh Mampeh waterfall in Les near Tejakula, Temple in Kubutambaham...
For seeing dolphins 9 tourists out of 10 head to Lovina, where the quantity of boats with tourists almost exceeding number of dolphins. Not many people know that for a night time a lot of dolphins come to Bukti- Bondalem-Tejakula area where there are no much tourists.
Also not many people aware that during rainy period on the Northern side of Bali it rains significantly less comparing to the south and central part of the island (due to mountains).
After 10 years of travel to that area finally I decided to settle in there)
