Our group participated in lunch. The women of the home prepared a traditional Balinese meal and we were invited to sit as we felt comfortable and partake in the meal. The children danced and the grandfather of the house performed a traditional song. This home has been in seven generations of this family and three of these are currently living within the compound. The grandfather also shared with us about the woodcarvers and we got to visit the wood carving showroom. The artistry contained there was awesome. I love being able to experience authentic music and culture. We also toured the property including seeing the rice paddy.

Our small tour group had dinner here and were treated to a performance of traditional dances and a tour of the compound's temples and features honoring the dead family members. There is a wonderful shop that sells wood carvings, masks, musical instruments, textiles, etc.

We went here in group, about 30 people, to know balinese culture. The man who runs this place guided us about 3 hours to go around the village.

We learn about daily life activities of Balinese, the ancient irrigation system of Baliness, etc.

We also tried the Bali Gamelan here.

There homestay if you want to stay the nights here. It's really good to have conversation with the owner.

The father of the people who run Bali Budaya is chairman of Bali Community Eco Tourism and he has a passion for Bali Cultural Tourism.

My partner wanted to learn traditional Balinese dancing and to play the gamelan instrument, similar to a xylophone. She had one to one tuition for 100k rupiah, in the Queens English, that's about £5, although the lesson was booked for one hour, the time ran over and there was no extra charge. She was given a free music lesson and was invited to join in a class of local school children.

I spent my time chatting to the father and watching the wood carvers. I offered to buy an unfinished carving just for the memory and didn't barter for the price; 200k IDR was good value. When I went back the next day, they gave me a gift of a Buddha because the wood carver was so happy.

That's what you get when you make the effort to interact with local Balinese people. Forget the organized tours and independently you can find beautiful places and beautiful people, you just need to travel with your eyes open.

When we visited the village, it's was just to brothers there. Our driver ketut took us inside, and we get a full site seeing inside. Talked to the brothers, they explained there way of living and there's traditional way of cooking. Not so far from the 1800-s Sweden. Take a walk in the village, it's not to big. A few houses whit an open building in the middle whit a roof. Our driver explain that it's here putting the dead ones, waiting for the rest of the family to pay their last respect. The put the body on ice to to creep ' the smell away'. Then we visited to brothers bedroom in one of the houses. The buildings were made of clay whit a straw rooftop. Real interesting visit. And the brothers answer to tourists probably stupid question whit grace.

A group of eight people went on this tour which was arranged by our driver. We met our guide Ketut at the local markets who introduced himself and gave an idea of what we would be doing for the tour. These were traditional markets which sold alot of fresh produce and we then walked around the stalls and purchased the food that was needed for our cooking class.
We then proceeded to Ketut's village which was a very neat and tidy village. After an introduction and welcome,everyone was the involved in preparing of our lunch. We were helped by one main chef and a couple of happy ladies.There were plenty of options such as: cutting and chopping such things as chicken, onions, garlic, beans etc. We also particpated in the cooking of the food in traditional methods.
It was a great experience with plenty of laughs and the food was awesome.
Following lunch we were shown around the village and its facilities then ended up in the wood carving shop. Great bargains were bought by nearly all of us at very reasonable prices.
Great day had by all of us and a big thank you to all the people who were there. It was probably one of the best day trips/tours that we had done in four visits to Bali.

Other than cooking also available are tradional farming,cross country, home stay, wood carving and other interesting programes. see www.balibudaya.com or ctc Ketut on balibudaya@yahoo.co.id
