My friend really want to go to hot spring, in Bali have tree hot spring, first in MT Batur but the price so damn expensive. So, we just take picture only there in the pool, lol. But it doesn't mean we give up not to enjoy hot spring. Another plan, we want go to Singaraja for hot spring. But there is so far and our budged really impossible to go there. Little sad ya, but don't worry! In last minute we found information about hot spring in Tirta Empul Tapaksiring.

If you want go to bath in Tirta Empul Tapaksiring, of course you need bring extra clothes. Just for in case, when already there you wanna try it to enjoy the holy spot water there. We go there by bemo, one of public transportation in Bali.  

NOTE: You can charter the bemo or just used it with the balinese people who want go to Gianyar. But you should wake up early morning. Because the bemo stand by in Ubud Market around 06.00-07.30 AM. If used the public transportation with the people the price around 4000 IDR. But I don't want waiting long time plus after finish waiting transportation will so suck. So better just charter to bring you to Hot spring and the bemo will waiting you. You have two hours and pay for 150.000 IDR to charter the bemo. So cheaper right.

The location of Tirta Empul Tapaksiring around 20 kilometer, the road so good even not in main street. But the view also so nice, many rice fields every where. Really nice, make my eyes look so fresh. I really love this moment, then rent motor bike. Because the problem is will suck if get lost and get police trap again. TIRED.

The ticket to get entrance this place one person just around 15.000 IDR or 1.50 USD. The view when you get there so cute and nice. After paying you will go to other part and like usually you should used sarong. But this place you should give donation when you wear that sarong.

When I go there many Balinese people go there for ritual, so we should queue to get the hot spring and. The water is not what I imagine hot or warm but so damn cold. But don't worry even cold, you really will enjoy it. When I am waiting my line, some people bring bottle and after they put their head in the one spot water, they take some water from one spot to other spot. Ah, it  many spot of the holy water, have two spot you can't take it. Because it just for some ritual.

It is not fair if I am not telling you information about what is Tirta Empul Tapak Siring. Okey, what is that?
 Tirta Empul Temple or Tampak Siring Temple is a holy spring water temple located in Tampak Siring Village, Gianyar regency and it is about 39 km eastwards from Denpasar town.
