Handara Iconic Gate

Bali, Indonesia

The Handara Iconic Gate is a very popular Instagram location. Either you come very early in the morning to take some shots, otherwise you will need some time and nerves. This location is so crowded, that you need to wait 1 hour to get a possibility for a picture without people. Before entering the gate, you will need to pay a fee of IDR 30,000 per person, when you are not located at the resort.

There is not much specials to consider, just enjoy this amazing location.
