For those wanting to immerse themselves in the local culture, this is the activity you’re looking for.
You’ll travel to a simple village east of Ubud to meet your hosts and walk a mile in their shoes.
Typically, a Balinese home includes 4-5 houses where 3 or more generations live together with their spouses and families.
Outside is a garden with a small rice plantation, various animals and family temple and the ‘gazebo’ where residents go to spend most of the day.
In the morning, you’ll prepare family recipes and experience the connection that only preparing a meal together can cultivate.
Your hosts will show you how to construct a Balinese offering to Hindu gods by carefully intertwining palm leaves to make a small basket.
Everyone sits down together for lunch so you can enjoy the food you helped prepare.
No silverware allowed!
In this home, you’ll sit crossed legged on the floor and eat with your hands like a true balinese.
After lunch, you will take part in common ceremonies practiced in these parts.
Engage in the harmonious dance and feel the rhythm of the gamelan, a unique drum.
The art of playing this music is passed down from generation to generation in most families.
After such an immersive experience, returning to your hotel might be a bit of a shock.
