Bali, Indonesia: Penglipuran Village; things to do


Penglipuran Village

The families in this traditional village open their houses to visitors every day in exchange for government payment.  It is a great chance for visitors to step through gates and get inside fences to see how local people really live.  We visited a very simple household that raised pigs and chickens in their back yard and had an assortment of fruit trees in their garden.  Another compound kept a cadre of roosters for fighting that were sadly restrained in cramped bamboo cages that were only a little bigger than they were.  Construction in this area uses a lot of bamboo because the wood is produced in great quantity here.  A large temple complex is just uphill from the houses.  Sarongs are available to borrow for a small donation before entering.
