    Stop At: Bali Traditional House Gung Aji, Jalan Raya Negara No.100, Sukawati, Batuan, Gianyar, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80582, Indonesia

    The Balinese traditional compound is basically divided into three parts on which part has different purposes. Applying the directional concept of their traditional compass, holy structures are built at the mountain at the mountain – wards of the compound such as shrines ( head ), in the middle yard are built all structures of living quarter ( body ), and at the seawards for kitchen and remaining land where they usually throw garbage away. A Balinese traditional compound is mostly enclosed either red bricks, sand stones, or odove walls covered with thatch roof made sedge grass or rice stubble. In front of the compound is the entrance gate.On both sides of the entrance walls, there are two niches as the substitution of shrines where , if the family is a bit financially better off they usually construct separate shrines, sometimes elaborate ones.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Mas Carving Center, Mas Villages Ubud Indonesia

    Mas Village is Place to visit in Bali
    This Artistic countryside owns the long history root. The result of wood carving art in this village owns the immeasurable and wide dimension like idol for the devoting (arca idol), representative dimension of everyday Balinese social society life (farmer, fisherman, worker, intellectual, merchant etc), the abstract dimension as existing of actor imagination which is listening carefully of reality, dynamics and life philosophy. The villagers are same as villagers at other tourism countryside in Bali that have also experienced the transformation from agrarian society to the crafting society.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tohpati Village, 12km From Kuta, Denpasar 80225 Indonesia

    Batik is derived from the word amba which means write and titik which means dot. Both are the words from Javanese language. So, we can translate Batik as traditional form of the painting fabric. Some places in Indonesia have their own Batik, included Bali. We can say that Batik from Bali is now getting really famous because of its beautiful pattern and stunning colors.Tohpati Village is also a perfect place when you want to see so many hand weaving products. You can make it as a gift from Bali. Just like Batik, the hand weaving from Tohpati village is also made with traditional method that needs a long time for making it. It will give better result and higher quality product. The most popular motif for hand weaving product from this village is the motif that is used for endek, the traditional Balinese wearing.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tegenungan Waterfall, Jl. Raya Tegenungan, Kemenuh, Ubud 80581 Indonesia

    The falls are only several minutes’ walk down the trail beyond the parking, where you’ll enjoy the impressively green valley panorama with cascading water as a centerpiece. Dense foliage frames the falls, and the water volume is impressive at almost any time of year, but normally at its strongest during the wet season (October to April). You can go down to the vast pebbly base and enjoy a dip in the plunge pool, but this is not advised after heavy downpours, due to the risk of flash floods.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tegalalang Rice Terrace, Jl. Raya Ceking Tegallalang Between Tegalalang and Ubud, Ubud 80517 Indonesia

    Tegallalang Rice Terraces in Ubud is famous for its beautiful scenes of rice paddies involving the subak (traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system), Tegallalang forms the three most splendid terraced landscapes in Ubud's shared region, with the others being in the villages of Pejeng and Campuhan. The Tegallalang rice terraces alone offers a scenic outlook that spreads down before you and away to the rice paddies on the slopes across the valley. The high roadside location is cool and breezy and it is a well-known spot for tourists to stop and take photos.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Jl. Raya Ubud, Puri Saren Palace, Ubud 08671 Indonesia

    Puri Saren Ubud.
    While in Bali you will frequently encounter palatial structures boasting historical significance prefixed with the word Puri, literally Balinese ‘royal palaces’. Puri in general is a house of nobility in Bali especially of Balinese rajas and their kin. The Puri Saren Ubud Palace currently also serves as a cultural repository of arts, dance and literature. The palace’s stage and meeting halls are also host international events.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Puseh Batuan Temple, Batuan Village near Singapadu, Sukawati 80582 Indonesia

    This 11th century temple faces a separate large communal hall,
    Batuan Temple, referred to locally as ‘Pura Puseh lan Pura Desa Adat Batuan’, is a focal landmark in the namesake village of Batuan, Up the five-tiered ‘candi bentar’ gate of Batuan Temple, you’ll come across various reliefs depicting mythical Balinese figures and floral themes, as well as statues depicting the Hindu trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva further inside. A series of multi-tiered thatched-roof shrines within the temple’s inner courtyard are set in a layout that is typical of all large temple complexes in Bali. The temple pavilion’s wooden beams and ceilings are heavily engraved and gold gilded.
