On another day Dale and I went for a walk along the streets of Legian to Seminyak – via Jalan Raya Seminyak and Jalan Kayu Aya - on the map it didn’t look that far but when you’re walking it’s a different story - it’s not a bad walk actually but I do advise you to take water and to wear good walking shoes and one’s you won’t get blisters in.
On the way we stopped to look at some of the multitude of shops that line the road – the prices in the shops and restaurants in this area is a bit dearer than Legian and Kuta as a lot of Europeans stay here and things are priced to suit.
It’s amazing how the Balinese will use every spare block of land – in the middle of a suburban street you might discover a couple of vacant blocks and it has been turned into several rice paddies – that is what we found on this trek, right in the middle of a busy suburban street.
The distance back via the roads and streets was a little daunting considering how long it took us to get this far so we decided to find the beach and made our way back to Legian along the beach – wise move the beach route was a lot shorter. The soft beach sand was a pleasant change from trudging long the hard concrete footpaths that had the occasional holes that you had to dodge.
Right on the beach at Jalan Sari Dewi, Seminyak, we discovered a great restaurant/nightclub on the beach called Ku De Ta, it was great. They have huge dance parties, activities for the kids or live bands – depending on the schedule – they decorate the whole place up with different themes every week or so – when we went there it was "Alice in Wonderland" with a huge white rabbit, a huge artificial tree and large red hearts hanging from the trees outside. It is a bit expensive to go to for a special event night out - about $100US per person, but that usually includes a meal and entertainment - but free of charge during the day or any other time but you have to buy everything.
