Exhausted from all the craziness the previous day (cramming papers, last-minute packing, braving the heavier than usual traffic in the metro) and with barely a couple of hours of sleep, I was just really looking forward to chillin’ in Bali for our first day in Indonesia. And, it was a good thing that we found a good resting spot for us, Bakung Beach Resort. It was sort of a last minute decision to book this hotel because we were all being so OC as to where we should stay, months prior. But, Angge found this place and, after checking the reviews, we decided to book it.
From Duero, we took the bus to Loay and again to Carmen to get to Chocolate Hills. The entire trip took about three to four hours from Duero, such that it was already almost dark when we got to where we were supposed to alight. We were lucky enough that there was a lone tricycle available to bring us to the viewing deck. Had it not been there, we would have missed seeing the beautiful Chocolate Hills altogether and the seemingly endless bus ride from Loay would have been for naught.
