How is this a "temple"? I thought a temple was a place of worship, not organized crime?! There isn't much to see here. We arrived to find hundreds of tourists. The only thing that outnumbered them were the monkeys. The place is literally crawling with...More

Great view, heaps of photo opportunities. Easy walk but can get super hot. Careful of monkeys as they can grab your sunnies or hats etc. A monkey came and bite a part of my flip flogs off. Entry fee 30,000. Worth it.

Uluwatu is a popular spot for both sunset and the evening fire dance -- that means it will be very crowded in the evening. It will also be very hot, as there is no protection from the sun as is sets in the west, but...More
