While waiting for my Japanese work visa in ’08 I got stuck in Bali for 2 and half weeks. If I had to be stuck somewhere, paradise was the best place to be. I spent most of my time reading and relaxing in the sun and exploring the island. I visited the beautiful temples and then went and explored the beautiful rice paddies of Bali on a quad bike! It was a fun way to do some sightseeing off the beaten track.
The Bali Quad tour took me to through authentic Balinese terrain across rice fields, plantations, through the jungle and loads of mud tracks!
The guide picked me up at my hotel early morning. Once we arrived at the base camp we stored your belongings in a locker and watched a safety video before we received a briefing from our guide. The Quads are fully automatic & easy to operate although driving through mud and water got a bit tricky later on.
Once we had completed the test track we started our 2 hour adventurous sightseeing tour. During the tour we got to enjoy the beautiful sights, and learn a little bit about the surrounding areas from our guide. One of the guides took our cameras and took photos of each of us as we struggled through the mud and rice paddies on the quad bikes.
We got to drive ourselves along the most hidden spots on the island, through magnificent panoramas that took my breath away. Unfortunately I could not capture it all on camera as one of the guides had mine. But half way through we took a break and I got to capture some of the beautiful scenery around us before we continued on our mud covered adventure.
This was enough dirty adventure for one day but the views made it all worth it. Would you go quad biking through the jungle and rice paddies?
