Start at the Batuan temple, a local Balinese Hindu temple full of ornaments, with a roof made from black palm tree fronds. A visit to the 15m Tegenungan waterfall - the ideal destination for a spot of swimming - is next. Adventurous (and insured) souls can opt to jump off the waterfall for an adrenaline rush.
Witness the serenity of theTegalalang rice fields, and learn the history of ‘subak’, the traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system. View the sea of green paddies down the valley before making your way to Ubud.
In Ubud, visit a coffee, cocoa, and tea plantation and learn about coffee luwak, one of the most unusual coffees in the world. Coffee luwak is made from the beans of coffee berries that have passed through the digestive tracts of the Luwak, the Asian palm civet. Farmers then collect the berries and clean, roast and grind them. Taste the resulting coffee in the plantation for a fee.
Then, visit several art villages in Ubud that specialise in different mediums. Mas Village focusses on wood carving, Celuk village on silver and gold jewellery, and Tohpati village in Batik weaving. See and learn about the different techniques involved in each process. View the full itinerary here.
