  1. Great post! I really like this place! East Bali is also my favorite area in Bali. Thats why we also had our wedding in the Karangasem area. We went to Tirta Gangga in 2012 and I also went swimming in the swimming pools. I also heard that it’s possible to have a wedding at Tirta Gangga, I imagine must also be a unique experience.

    1. Tirta Gangga garden is just so beautiful! I have been there twice and I do want to go there again. I am not sure if they can open for wedding ceremony but that would be soo great. I haven’t tried the swimming pool yet and maybe i should try it next time
