Have you been working so hard that you hardly take a break?
With so much work to do, you should take a break. You should take a break without hurting your wallet. What is more economical than taking a holiday in Bali? If any of you have been to Bali before, how was your Bali holidays?
Recently, we decided to spend some time in Bali for a short vacation. We started doing some research on the internet and found that there are many Bali holidays packages or Bali vacation packages. Bali is the largest tourist destination in Indonesia. Bali is an island and province of Indonesia. Bali is known for its volcanic mountain. The highest is Mount Agung (still active) which stands 3,031m and is known as the “mother mountain”.
Back to the Bali vacation packages, there are many Bali vacation packages to choose from. I have been to Bali once before and that time, we had engaged the assistance of Mr. Suta from Bali Bagus Tour who offers a variety of full day and half day Bali vacation packages which includes a tour to Kintamani Volcano, Bedugul, Twin Lakes, Jatiwulih, Tanah Lot, Uluwatu Temple, Jimbaran Bay, Kecak and Fire Dance and many more. If you are looking for adventures Bali vacation packages, Bali Bagus Tour also offer White Water Rafting, Horse Riding, Mountain and Village Cycling at Kintamani Volcano, Rice Paddies Trekking, Odyssey Submarine, Bali Hai Reef Cruise or Breach Club Cruise and also Mt. Batur Climbing. There’s a very detailed list on their Bali vacation packages on their website. You actually rent a van when you pick their Bali vacation packages. So whether you have 2 persons or 4 persons, you still pay the same for a van. In short, the more people you have in a group, the more you save. Our tour driver for the whole 4 days of our trip was Mr. Gede Sukamara, an enthusiastic, honest and friendly man who is eager and proud to show tourists his birthplace, Bali. Overall, our trip was fantastic as he knows some of the short cuts around Bali Island and some of the best places to eat in Bali. He is just amazing.
We stopped at Bebek Bengil also known as Dirty Duck in English in Ubud. You must be wondering, what do you mean by Dirty Duck? Is the duck dirty or what? No the duck is not dirty.
You see, the founder of Bebek Bengil came out with the name Bebek Bengil when he was having a meal next to the padi field. A duck somehow got on his table and because the duck is dirty, he called it a dirty duck. So this is how the name Bebek Bengil was first created, the original crispy duck since 1990.
Bebek Bengil serves Balinese food with its signature dish, the crispy duck for IDR 125,000.00 which is roughly converted to about USD$10 . It is a must order on the menu. The duck, like its name is very crispy. It is so crispy that you can actually eat it together with its bones.
We also ordered their Nasi Campur Bali for IDR 75,000.00 ~ USD 6.00. Both dishes are equally good. The food comes with a variety of bumbu or sauces. Each sauces are customize to suit different people’s taste buds. If you like spicy food, they have a spicier sauce. If you like sweet sauce, they also have it.
What amazes me about this establishment is that it looks like just any other shops around Ubud, Bali town – it looks small from the front of the restaurant. But once we were lead inside the restaurant, we were very surprise that the Bebek Bengil is huge! Take a look at some of the pictures I have taken around the Bebek Bengil restaurant in Ubud, Bali.
They have seats in different location around the restaurant area separated by padi field gardens.
We were quite lucky that when we were there, the padi fields are still green. It was a great scenery for us to enjoy with when we were having our meal there.
Some Balinese cultural structure.
Bebek Bengil is located very close to Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali. If you are visiting Ubud, Bali for holiday, you should include Bebek Bengil as one of your itinerary in your Bali vacation package.
