It’s the day you’ve been waiting for! Today, you’ll experience the traditional craft of wax dyeing in Indonesia. The country has a rich textile tradition, which dates back centuries. If there is one fabric to be found across the archipelago islands, it’s batik. Batik is dyeing fabric with the wax-resist method where individuals hand-paint wax on clothes before melting it off. The result is beautiful patterns and designs. Today, you will visit a workshop to watch batik being produced by hand. It is a very meticulous task! Next, the workers will conduct a class to teach you how to create your own batik designs. What a wonderful souvenir to bring home with you!
Jump on a boat from Bali to escape to the Gili Islands. Your boat will have a glass bottom for you to view Bali’s marine life on the way. Keep a lookout for turtles, sharks, stingrays, colorful fish, and more! Traditional Indonesian cuisine awaits your arrival at your private island. Next, take some time to rest in a hammock, swim in the ocean, explore the jungle, or snorkel the water. A local guide will accompany you to comment on the area’s unique ecosystems and wildlife.
You’ve seen Bali’s spectacular marine life, so why not encounter its land animals, too! Start the day visiting the famous Monkey Forest. Enjoy an intimate experience with these mischief makers by feeding the monkeys. Next, enjoy grazing on a platter of fresh meats, pastries, fruits, and cheeses with a cold brew coffee in hand. Following this, you’ll head to the Bali Swing to enjoy a Tarzan experience. Finish the day with a visit to a coffee plantation and rice fields.
