One of my personal goals every year is traveling, as much as I could. It doesn't matter whether I'm going to a new or back to the same old destination, traveling always feeds my soul and brightens my perspective. I was in Vietnam in February, visited Bali in April, went to Vietnam and Phuket in June, then came back to Bali in July again. Now, as I'm about to plan my next trip to Australia, I'm in a hurry to share with you some great memories I had with Bali over the last couple of weeks, before they become long overdue. 

I mentioned before, in the previous blog post, that I decided to take a risk to pick Padma Resort Legian instead of The Royal Beach Seminyak. It turned out to be the best choice I've made and Padma Resort impressed me every single day we were there.

Shoes for traveling- Padma Resorts Legian

Obviously, I had a phobia of not bringing enough shoes for the 3-day holiday.

Everything about this hotel was so photo worthy, including the white robe and fresh orchid. The poser? Not so much.

CrystalPhuong- Travel Blog- Dinner at Potato Head- Bali

First dinner in Bali at Potato Head Beach Club and it was really a good one. It was a little bit distance away from our hotel (45mins drive), but the delicious food and the view made up for the heavy traffic journey.

Just before the sunset, a couple of photos would hurt nobody. Thanks to my lovely and patient photographer.

Best candle light dinner date by the pool with no carbs, only protein. 

Crystal Phuong- Singapore Travel Blog- Bali street shopping

Couldn't get away with some street shopping at the crowded Legian street.

We actually ended up in a gorgeous spa to hide ourselves from the sun and the busy street. $150++ for 2-hour spa package for two people seemed like the best investment by far. 

Beautiful Bali beach sunset

Then, we quickly came back to our hotel, just in time to catch this golden hour 

and had a little fun while at it.

Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank. 

I'm thankful for the opportunities that allow me travel places, document my life through each place I've been, and share them with you. Places like this always fill me with so much energy, positivity, and love. I hope these photos make you feel the same. 

Thank you so much for reading!
