Description

Engage with the rural culture of Candirejo on a village tour designed to reveal and sustain the age-old customs of community life. By taking part in everyday activities such as cooking, playing music, riding a horse and cart and bamboo rafting, you receive a holistic view of the Balinese lifestyle.

Begin your cultural adventure by observing the pace of village life from a dokar – a horse-and-carriage cart. Ride through the charming village, and make stops along the way to see the people's way of life. Witness cassava-cracks making, see the harvesting of vanilla and chilli and collect fresh ingredients for your lunch later.

Take to the kitchen with your hand-picked goods, and get ready to prepare your own lunch. With your local host, learn how to mix different spices, combine ingredients and uncover the traditions of Indonesian cuisine.

After lunch and a short rest, discover how to play authentic gamelan instruments. With simple features made from bamboo and wood, learn to compose simple traditional songs, before heading to the river for a bit of bamboo rafting.

From instruments to flotation devices, bamboo is a common material used in village life. Your raft carries you along the calm waters of the Candirejo River, gliding by herbal plant fields and bamboo plantations.

Although the attraction has always been on Chandi Borobudur, this tour tops the experience with the rustic Indonesian home-style cooking amidst the quaint village setting.
