A Visit to Lembongan Island
On Sunday morning, my friends and I went to one of the well-known island in Bali, Lembongan.( Orientation) At first, we visited Mangrove in which we could enjoy mangrove and its population that protected some parts of Lembongan Island. Gala-Gala Under Ground House was the second place where we took pleasure in. Furthermore, it was an outstanding human-made building that was ever made. The third place which showed the almighty of the God was Sunset Beach in which we were presented by miraculous natural view that spoiled our eyes; in addition, we could ‘taste’ gorgeous sunset.(Events) Therefore, we really loved the trip and were looking forward to visiting other interesting places in Lembongan Island; what an enjoyable trip it was.(Reorientation)
