This tour is one of the most complete and one of the most interesting tours as in one single day you will experience various aspects of Balinese life, from Bali’s natural beauty, her religious life, her charming traditional dance and typical houses, the Balinese food to Balinese handicraft villages. Ubud and the surrounding villages are called the Balinese cultural capital because from long time ago those villages have been famous for their talented artists and craftsmen and the beautiful nature around the land.
We start the day by attending the legendary Barong and Kris dance in Batubulan that symbolizes the eternal fight between the virtue and the evil (in the afternoon tour we replace it with the Kecak and Fire dance). Afterwards we take you to see the most beautiful village temple of Bali located in Batuan and dated from 1022 AD decorated with lovely carvings, and then to the Tegenungan waterfall located in the midst of the dense tropical vegetation. Continuing our trip we take you to a traditional Balinese house compound at Kemenuh to learn the curious local architecture and to experience the people daily life. Our next stop is the beautiful monkey forest of Ubud, noted for her charming water temple below the shade of giant Banyan tree in the riverside. We also stop in the Kumuda Saraswati temple with her beautiful Lotus pond which was designed by I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, one of the most prominent Balinese traditional architects. Lunch will be served in a local restaurant with lovely rice field’s view. Ubud’s Puri Saren Royal Palace is our next destination to experience how the Balinese royalty live. There are also opportunities to see the craftsmen at work creating excellent art pieces in Batik and Ikat traditional cloths in Tohpati, gold and silver jewellery in Celuk, fine mask and woodcarvings in Kemenuh and Balinese traditional paintings in Batuan.
