Bali Trip-Pura Luhur Uluwatu

After fell for the fascinating Tirtha Uluwatu, we went to Pura Luhur Uluwatu. Pura Luhur Uluwatu is a Balinese Sea Temple and one of the Balinese Directional Temples with the majestic cliff setting. The entrance fee is Rp6K and you need to be properly dressed to enter. Sarongs and sashes are available free at the entrance.

When you walk around here, you have to beware of monkeys. They will snatch visitors belonging which including earring, necklace, spec, hat, camera and even sandal. Luckily my driver, Made Jiwa (Tel: +628123668893) was there to protect us. He walked around with us and he was carrying a stick to scare of the monkeys. If so unlucky that the monkeys snatch your belongings, the local will help you get back it with charges of Rp10K-50K. From what I observed, the monkeys have been trained to snatch those items so the local can earn extra money. First time in my life I hate monkey so much. Photobucket

@Kian Fai: I also think they might have disease too.

I remember once I was in Ubud, a monkey jumped onto the top of the bag (possibly trying to steal something). Luckily I managed to react fast enough.

@darranlow: Yalo...super terrible...you even can know the real face of the local people there that raised the monkeys.
