Shopping at the local mall and going to markets are no longer the only activities to do when travel. It came to no surprise that water tourism has been seen as a favourite destination to go by tourists these days as a way to spend their vacation. However, discovering beautiful and clean nature surrounding at this time can be quite difficult, especially in the urban areas.
Fret not, here you could find one in the city of Denpasar, which is also a community favourite called Tukad Bindu. It is located in Kelurahan Kesiman, East Denpasar District, Denpasar City. The distance from Denpasar City is about 5.3 kilometres with a travel time of about 13 minutes.
Tukad Bindu is managed by Tukad Bindu Foundation in collaboration with the government of Denpasar. The previous surrounding which used to be dirty are now transformed to a clean place with provided water tour. The community also still utilizes the water from Tukad Bindu, where some residents would wash or bathe in the river.
Tourists visiting the Tukad Bindu are not subject to parking fees or entrance fees. However, tourists could help donate money as they will in the provided box by the community.

They provide quite a range of food from local food like Tipat Cantok, Rujak, Serombotan, to snacks like french fries, Lumpia, to various types of thirst-releasing drinks! The price is affordable ranging from Rp 5,000 to Rp 15,000. Meanwhile, the drinks are priced at around Rp 3,000 to Rp 10,000. Incidentally, I ordered a fried noodles worth of Rp 7.000 and avocado juice as a companion drink worth of Rp 5,000. It is safe for me to say that the food was tasty and cheap!
