Bali Tour 1 : Ubud and Sukawati
If you have a high sense of art and really have passions in art, traditional and culture, I suggest you to take this Bali Tour Ubud-Sukawati for the day.
Ubud is where you can see how the artists do their homework with passion.
You can watch them painting the beautiful picture, craving beautiful sculpture, making handicrafts from coconut shell, woods, rattans, glass, candle and many more.
I believe 2 hours will not be enough for you to see how passionate they are in making beautiful handicrafts.
You will be tempted to get few products made by them, however it's not the right place. They only make from raw materials until final products. If you wish to have their handicrafts there is a special market where you can shop the art and crafts until you drop, which is SUKAWATI.
But wait a minute....don't you feel hungry after walking around ?
Let's take a break...
There's a traditional Balinese favorite food where you can't get the perfect taste in anywhere like this, BABI GULING or ROASTED PIG.The skin is so crispy and delicious, you can enjoy it anywhere you like if you take away the food.
For me, I choose the small hut near the rice field, while I am enjoying my Babi Guling, I'm also enjoying how beautiful the rice field with the feeling the breeze and hearing bird chirping. And...you can say LIFE IS SO GOOD...
and of course yes it is.
After your stomach is fulled, it's time to shop.
As mentioned, Sukawati is another favorite place. Sukawati is a big market place where sells many art and craft products, you can choose whatever you like to decor your house from living room, bed room, bath room, kitchen, and study room.
Warning.....you must bargain the price, please bargain 50% from the offered price.
If you lucky enough you could get the goods very cheap.
You don't need to worry if they cheat or do hard sell, Balinese people are very nice and friendly so you are saved :)
Ok, after your wallet is empty, let's move on. I don't want you to be in debt by buying all products that you want haha...
It's time to go back to wherever you stay and dream about BABI GULING...oh I love it...
