On this tour, we first experience the traditional shopping of Bali by visiting a local market. At the market, you can observe and participate with the local people in buying their everyday needs. From the local market, we then head to the village of Kemenuh to see the famous Balinese wood carving, such as masks and sculptures. We then visit Celuk village, famous for their silver workmanship. Here you can see the intricate steps in the production of jewelry and other silver items. From there we head to Batuan village to visit a painting gallery (or two if you wish).
After a morning of exploring shopping opportunities, we then go to a nice restaurant, overlooking rice terraces and forests, for an a la carte lunch. At the restaurant, menu choices include Balinese, Indonesian and Western items.
After lunch we visit our Balinese compound. There we will explain the traditional way Balinese families live as a large group.
Close to our family home, we end the day at our family spa, Ubud Traditional Spa, where you can have your choice of massages and reflexology in a nice relaxing atmosphere.

For the shopping stops, our goal is to bring you to workshops with a high level of craftsmanship. We can, of course, take you to shops that you have chosen yourself, or we can decide on-the-go where to stop along the way! If you are also looking for other type of products, such as furniture, clothing, etc, we can help for this as well.
