Other than gorgeous rice fields and agricultural crops, you’ll also find here colourful markets, traditional weaving techniques and a sense of community and family that we haven’t found elsewhere.
Just imagine to yourself green fields as far as your eyes can see, dotted by the occasional color flower field, strolling around this rural area you’ll see farmers working in the fields, women will greet you on their way to the local temple with the daily offerings, children wearing their school uniform will wave and laugh as they pass you by on their motorbikes and the majestic Mount Agung can be seen from afar covered by the morning mists.
There’s a relaxed atmosphere in the air and friendliness that is hard to find in our modern world.Sidemen is a charming little area where you will get to experience the authentic Bali, as it used to be before the trendy coffee shops, swarms of tourist and traffic jams.
You won’t need a policeman to help you cross the street here, that’s for sure! If there is one place you like to go back to during our next Balinese adventure, it’s Sidemen Valley.
