Overview

Is an authentic greeting of Balinese people once entering the village. Taman Sari Buwana is a semi social activity which is developed related to sustainable tourism concept. The tourist attraction offered is referring to the potential recourses of the village itself, both natural and human recourses. Through this alternative tourism will do hope elevate both local skill as well as economic scale of the village. A local people name Ketut… with his wide range experiences in tourism industry especially in hotel business field, stand as volunteer in developing this unusual tourist attraction. Few of the money earn from this activity is allocated to support teaching and learning social activity which is directed to those kids of the village. Every Sunday they are gather in one of family house compound to get introductory lesson about Computer, English, Chinese Arithmatic as well as positive mentality building. Your participation, suggestion or other kind of support is very much appreciated.
