The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant offers you the rarest opportunity to dine while being surrounded by an actual coral reef! If that's not unique, we don't know what is! Imagine having dinner while sharks and other fish float directly above your head as you can see them through the glass ceiling!

HolidayIQ reviewer Subhayan says, "First to come was the thrilling experience of scuba diving in the lagoons of South Atoll. The moment one enters the water one feels otherworldly. Visibility is superb in the warm waters surrounding the atolls. Healthy corals are virtually untouched by humans "

The trees in Gardens by the Bay look nothing short of having been borrowed from a science fiction movie. At times reminding you of Avatar, the otherworldly setting would have you marvelling at what technology in synergy with nature can achieve! What's better is the fact that you can have dinner on one of these and enjoy the brilliant aerial view!

HolidayIQ reviewer Kumar says, "Gardens by the Bay is a nature park, which has three gardens, namely, Bay south, Bay east and Bay central. There is a flower dome which features plants from Mediterranean. The cloud garden represents the cooler mountain regions."

HolidayIQ reviewer Partha says, "An immaculate place having all diverse tourist attractions, from an ancient Confucian "Man Mo Temple" to "mechanized escalator for pedestrians" and "Asia's biggest giant wheel" to British touch of Victoria Harbor, the "peak tram" and the endless tourist spots and shopping exotica."

People believe that visiting it cancels out the bad luck you might be carrying. Apart from the mythology, the sunsets here are absolutely stunning and will make you fall in love with the place!

HolidayIQ reviewer Vaishnavi says, "Tanah Lot temple, is located close to the shore, and the locals use a rope to get to it, especially when the tides are high. Beautiful views all around, so much of culture to absorb, one of the must-visits in Bali."
