Get a taste for Balinese farming life by spending a morning with a traditional agrarian family
Take a step back from the tourist beaches, swanky bars and lavish spas and see the authentic Bali that few have the chance to appreciate. Journey through banyan trees and banana plantations to Tanjuk Village for a unique insight into Balinese life (whilst supporting sustainable tourism). First visit a local elementary school to observe the daily lives of the local children - even get the chance to teach these eager pupils. Then it's time to meet the farmers, grab your tools and head out to the rice fields. Armed with a farmer's hat and a stick you will learn first-hand how to plough, plant, transplant and harvest rice. After your lesson, a farmer demonstrates his skill in climbing a coconut tree – you can give it a go too! Then refresh with a tasty young coconut. Once you've built up an appetite, settle down for the typical fare of a well-deserved lunch. On the return home, there's one more stop, the beautiful grounds of the Taman Ayun Royal Temple.
Learning about local Balinese life through hands-on experiences was the best part of the tour. We got to try our hand in planting rice and climbing a coconut tree which are both special and unusual experiences. Give this tour a try and discover more than just the beaches and bars in Bali.
