Turtle Island - Bali

Turtle Island

Turtle Island

Turtle Island - not worth the time and money! It's a HUGE tourist trap, nothing much to see (except some poor animals being trapped in cages). We were cajoled into buying a necklace ( the lady asked for 60,000 rp, but we bargained down the price to 30,000 rp). To our horror, we saw the EXACT same necklaces being sold at the Matahari Dept Store for only 5,000 rp a piece!

Before leaving the Island, we were also asked to give a donation to help in their work of "animal welfare". Ridiculous!

Unique Suggestions: If you really have to visit Turtle Island, try not to buy anything from the souvenir stall! Overpriced items galore!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
