Bali Day 5: Shopping in Kuta, Made’s Warung & Departure

Our flight home was in the evening, so we practically all day to spare on the final day. So we decided to take it easy and shop around Kuta and Legian. But first things first, the kids hit the pool.

We then took a hotel shuttle to Legian and walked slowly back for shopping. The whole area of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak is one whole combined shopping area, filled shoulder to shoulder with shops, stalls and bars and restaurants and more shops (and an occasional temple). One of the most popular area in Kuta is Poppies Lane 1 and 2. And this is how it looks like.


This pub has one of the best and most effective advertisement boards. Bloody cold beer.

Most of the shops sell either clothes or handicraft knick-knacks. There are a lot of surfboard shops too.

You’ll also find this shop everywhere. It’s the same as the one in 1-Utama. But much cheaper. But still expensive if compared to the other shops.

Of course you can’t miss the bomb memorial if you are in Legian.

For our last meal in Bali, we went to a landmark in Kuta – Made’s Warung. Its actually a simple two-storey restaurant, but its said to be Kuta’s first ever Western eatery here back in the 60’s. Its supposed to be the place to be seen if you’re a gwailou here in Bali. The food is nothing spectacular (in fact i thought it was disappointing), the decor is quite interesting.

My pork ribs. Not the best dish to try.

After lunch we walked back to the hotel to pack up for the airport. But before leaving, one last look at the beach…

Then its a 3-hour flight back.


Goodbye, Bali, it was a fantastic holiday. Can’t believe it took me so long to come here, but i finally did. I’ll come back again one day, hopefully.
