Bali Village Life & Tanah Lot Temple

Blend into traditional Balinese daily life on this day trip (Bali Village Life & Tanah Lot Temple) and practice the daily activities of the locals. In this excursion we will learn to live like another Balinese in a traditional town. We will end our day admiring the fascinating Tanah Lot Temple built in the sea west of Bali and from where we will see one of the most beautiful sunsets on the island of the Gods.

At 08.00 a.m we pick you up at your hotel and start our trip to Tunjuk Village in Tabanan regency.Upon arrival you will be welcomed with open arms with warm smiles from the locals you meet on the way. You will gather in the outer courtyard of the village temple and meet your local  guides.
When you complete the paddy tour, you will follow your guide on a path through lush gardens where villagers are engaged in everyday tasks. There are women pounding rice with heavy mallets to remove the hulls. Another group is making offerings, and one woman bakes lak-lak, the delicious Balinese sweet cakes drizzled with palm sugar syrup.
Tanah Lot is built on a rock formation and has been part of Balinese mythology for centuries. It owns a magnificent view in particular at the sunset time where the sun slows down to the earth stomach. Every visitor who is paying a visit to this place will be marveled to see the beauty panorama of Tanah Lot. After that we returned back to Hotel.

Throughout the walk you will meet people from the village involved in tasks that occupy them day in and day out. You can choose to observe or actually participate to get an even better understanding of village life. The powerful water buffalo is still used to pull the plow through the muddy paddies to prepare the earth for planting. Maybe you would like to ride on one of these patient creatures. Or perhaps you wish to help with the planting or harvesting, depending upon the time of year.

You will also learn about the exotic herbs and spices used in ceremonial and everyday Balinese dishes and are encouraged to actively help prepare the Food that will then be enjoyed.  After lunch we leave Tunjuk Village and continue our trip to visit Tanah Lot Temple.
