Our coastal village Jasri is located in the eastern part of Bali. Together with all the villagers we started a collaboration to open up our village to people who would be interested to experience typical Balinese village life. During these 2 days warm-hearted people and Balinese friendliness will surround you.
As soon as you arrive, you will meet your homestay family where you will stay this night. You can relax and sip lemonade while taking up the beautiful surrounding of Jasri. You have time to wander around, visit the beach and speak with the friendly locals. You can learn how to make traditional Balinese food while helping the woman of the house preparing the food. Balinese people love fish and coconut so you will definitely find one of these ingredients in your food.
The next morning after having enjoyed a delicious breakfast of toast, fresh fruits and juice you will be taken to the rice field in the western part of the village. Here we will start our rice field trekking in the lush and green surrounding enjoying the fresh coastal air. Meet the farmers working in their rice fields and learn about the farming methods they use to cultivate the rice. Explore the wide variety of vegetation and plants that grow along the edge of the fields. Some of them can be used as food and others are also used for traditional medicine. You will find banana trees, lemon grass, turmeric, jackfruit, palm, coconut, pineapples that grow side by side. Fresh young coconut juice is provided on the way picked by a farmer. The trekking will take about 3 hours.
After this morning exercise you will be served a savory lunch at your homestay with the family after which it is time to say goodbye.
