In remote West Balinese Banjar Beng Utara, in the village of Tunjuk, not far from Tabanan, an unique living cultural exhibit has opened to the public.
Established by the visionary Balinese businessman, Ketut Buana, Taman Sri Buwana provides visitors to Bali a chance to catch a glimpse of daily life on a traditional Balinese farm.
Each day guests are met at their hotels and delivered to Taman Sri Buwana where they are escorted on a tour of a typical Balinese compound, visiting the various buildings who size and position are carefully stipulated by age-old traditions based on the length of a priests arms and the structures' position vis-a-vis sacred Mount Agung.
After a visit to the banjar's elementary school, participants head for the communities farm land to view first-hand the various stages of rice cultivation and try their hand at planting Bali's precious rice harvest.
A trek through the surrounding lands, a drink of coconut milk provided by a nearby tree and a traditional Balinese lunch prepared by the village womenfolk round out a day Ė not soon to be forgotten.
