7 Stunning Locations in Bali for Photography
Bali is not only one of the most favourite tourist destinations in the world but also a gorgeous place with thousands of enthralling locations that are all worth visiting and capturing. Photography is essential at Mondo Surf Village, since we could not imagine any more suitable place to teach our visitors the best photography hacks than this beautiful paradise with its surfers, colourful traditions and stunning locations.
- Tegenungan Waterfall
Though Bali is most famous for its fantastic beaches and breathtaking sunsets, people often neglect the fact that the island is actually crowded with the most beautiful waterfalls. The crystal-clear water of Tegenungan Waterfall flowing down between the rocks offer an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind spectacle.
- Bali’s Abandoned Plane
Located over five minutes far from the popular Pandawa Beach of Bukit Peninsula, the abandoned plane is a very special and post-apocalyptic experience to photograph. The most interesting thing about it is that no one knows or have ever seen how the plane actually got there. For now, it is left there to rust and be an attraction for tourists.
- Tegalalang Rice Terrace
Ubud is full of rice terraces as long as the eye can see, but the biggest and most famous is Tegalalang. The lush, vivid green landscape spiced up with palm trees and coloured with the clear blue sky are the perfect combination to capture. On the other hand, cautiousness is key to avoid destroying the crops which means living for locals.
- Tanah Lot Temple
Tanah Lot is one of Bali’s most famous sacred places that tourists like to photograph, though entry is allowed only for locals. Despite of that, the full body shot in front of the gates is a must-have, just like the breathtaking sunset that is worth waiting for and staying on the island for a few more hours.
- Ubud Art Market
Surrounded with a rich rainforest and Indonesian temple, the Ubud Art Market is a perfect location to practice photography. Locals call the market ‘Pasar Seni Ubud’ which is full of colourful handmade products of local artisans starting from straw hats through gold and silver jewellery to cotton sarongs and crochet products.
- Ubud Monkey Forest
The Monkey Forest of Ubud is a great place to take photos of animals and trees as around 700 monkeys and 186 species of trees live there in a perfect harmony with people. Besides breathing some fresh air, the Forest is an important scene of Bali spiritually, economically and educationally.
- Seminyak Beach
Seminyak is one of the most popular beaches in Bali, thanks to the stylish beach resorts and lively nightlife. Waves here are suitable for advanced surfers, hence it is a good chance to capture motions and portraits of interesting people and characters.
Finding interesting themes is the easier part of photography, but taking good pictures depends on the knowledge of the photographer. In case of having a keen interest in developing photography skills, our Photography & Surf Package is the best choice.
