Taman Sari Buwana – Tabanan: View and interact directly on the Balinese rural lives
Taman Sari Buwana is a tourist attraction that presents the life of society at Banjar Beng Utara, Tunjuk Village, Marga, Tabanan, Bali.
Taman Sari Buwana is a semi social activity which is developed related to sustainable tourism concept. The tourist attraction offered is referring to the potential recourses of the village itself, both natural and human recourses. Through this alternative tourism will do hope elevate both local skill as well as economic scale of the village.
Here tourists can see and interact directly with the villagers in carrying out daily activities. I do not think this could become an interesting tourist attraction for tourists, especially foreign tourists.
The originator of this tourist attraction is genius…..
A local people name Ketut… with his wide range experiences in tourism industry especially in hotel business field, stand as volunteer in developing this unusual tourist attraction. Few of the money earn from this activity is allocated to support teaching and learning social activity which is directed to those kids of the village. Every Sunday they are gather in one of family house compound to get introductory lesson about Computer, English, Chinese and Arithmatic as well as positive mentality building. Your participation, suggestion or other kind of support is very much appreciated.
Activities conducted there are tourists participate in some daily work such as cooking, peel the coconut, cock fighting, cultivation and livestock breeding as well, tracking around the village, as teacher at the school by introducing the culture of origin countries, and several other activities.
Some people think….. that tourist attractions such as the rural atmosphere is refreshing thoughts of life in developed countries that are noisy and a lot of pollution.
