Tenganan is 4 km west form Candidasa ( relaxed, full of hotels and restaurants ). Fee admission is 5000 Rp per person. All cars and motorcycles must be parked infornt of village.

TV and all modern electronic devices are hidden away in the traditional houses.
In village you can buy hand made baskets from ATA PALM, Lontar Books - made on LONTAR PALM STRIPS (most of these books are Balinese callendars), traditional Balinese calligraphy (also on Lontar palm strips) and KAMBEN GRINGSING - traditional double ikat cloth.

Candidasa. Relaxed city with several hotels and restaurants. Also a good location to explore the Eastern side of Bali and eastern coast line with snorkling and diving sites.

Interesting sight in Candidasa is Candidasa`s temple - Pura Candidasa ( is on the hill side across the lagoon ) with twin temple devoted to the male - female gods Shiva and Hariti.

This is a very interetsing place to visit. I visited last year, but we paid no admission fee, and weren't asked for it. The report is a bit short and reads more like a travel trip than a report
