Salah satu tempat yang sangat menarik adalah Danau Buyan, walaupun tempat ini belum begitu populer ditelinga wisatawan, keindahannya bisa disejajarkan dengan Danau Beratan Bedugul maupun Batur. Terletak di ketinggian 1.000 meter di atas permukaan laut, membuat tempat ini berhawa sejuk bahkan cenderung dingin, Jika dalam perjalanan tour, wisatawan lebih cenderung berkunjung ke Danau Beratan Bedugul, karena lokasinya di pinggir jalan raya utama, sedangkan Danau Buyan letaknya tidak begitu jauh dari tempat ini, hanya sekitar 3 km di sebelah utaranya melintasi jalan pedesaan, yang dipenuhi kebun-kebun strawberry. Sebenarnya ada tiga buah Kaldera di kawasan ini yaitu Beratan yang paling populer terletak di sebelah timurnya, kemudian Tamblingan di sebelah baratnya dan Buyan di tengah-tengahnya. Keindahannya memang layak menduduki peta objek wisata di Bali dan patut anda kunjungi.

8. Munich

So the story was I wanted to see the Munich skyline view, and I read online that the best place to do it was at Saint Peter's Tower. But there was a catch. It is 14 storeys high, and there is no elevator. You have to climb. All the way to the top 😅⁣ .⁣ When I told my mother-in-law about the climb, she literally jumped and gave that incredulous look that said "Hell no!" 😂 Honestly. On hindsight, I think she was the smart one⁣ . ⁣ So my family hanged around the market square while I paid 3 euros to walk up the flight of stairs. You would think that from all the entrance fees being collected, they could have built an elevator by now⁣ .⁣ It didn't take long before I started to doubt my decision 😐 I was panting by the 5th storey as I was fully geared in cold weather attire and I was sweating way too much ⁣ .⁣ It didn't help that the passageways were narrow and there was an old couple just right behind me. They were tailing me right from the beginning⁣ .⁣ My pride was at stake so I tried my best to push on…and gave up around the 10th floor to let them pass 🤣⁣ .⁣ Photo: The building on the right is the New Town Hall and the cathedral on the left is Frauenkirche or Cathedral of Our Lady. What a stunning view⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #townhall #cathedral #munich #atalantaworld #artofdestinations #munichlifestyle #munichcity #munich_germany #bavaria #visitbavaria #igersmunich #deinbayern #germanvision #srs_germany #munichtourism #deutschland_greatshots #germanytourism #munichstagram #travel_2_germany #visit_munich #igersbavaria #munichlove #munichskyline #bestgermanypics #weroamgermany
