Monument of Human Tragedy

Take a seat and imagine the scene

What we say: 3.5 stars

It's difficult to visit the 2002 Bali Bombing Memorial and feel anything but frustration from the countless people trying to sell you trinkets, sign you up to scams and offering you transport.

But if you can battle your way past the relentless onslaught of touts and find a spot to perch yourself to observe the scene, you can almost imagine the horror of that fateful night in 2002 when 202 people were massacred in two massive explosions. Of the 202 killed, 88 were Australian and 38 Indonesian, with the balance of the dead from a range of countries.

Once done contemplating those awful events, pick yourself back up and be prepared for the touts to flood back into consciousness with cries of, "manicure, massage, transport, tourist survey!"
