This was the best experience we had while in Ubud with my husband and baby boy! And believe it or not, we saw no tourists the whole day. It was a genuine local experience.
It was a rainy day, but Wayan had many umbrellas to keep us dry. We walked through rice fields, where he explained to us how the irrigation system works, and how important these grains are for the population. The trail passed by his own land, and my baby was amazed with his animals. Cow, pigs, chickens, and more chickens. We then arrived at his home, where he lives with his family. Amazing hospitality, we were received with green coconuts, and his daughters played with our baby, while we were served an amazing home-cooked meal.
After listening to great and curious stories about Balinese lifestyle in the dinner table, Wayan and his wife dressed us up to visit the temple. Even our baby had his own little outfit.
I let my camera fall into the rice field earlier the day (lol), and was sad to no be able to take more pictures of the experience, so Wayan took many pictures of us to share.
After we were all looking nice, we headed to the temple, where we could see their religious side, and how much they thank god for the rice they grow. I don't want to spoil the surprise effect of your experience sharing all the details.. but in summary: it is a must do in Ubud.
