Travel back to a simpler time with a visit to Tenganan Aga Village, one of area's oldest communities. Home to the Bali Aga, the original inhabitants of Bali, this settlement features traditional architecture and preserves its age-old techniques for producing textiles. Surrounded by a wall, the village consists of simple homes with green hills as their backdrop. While no motorized vehicles can enter the settlement, you can walk in through one of three main gates, where a small donation grants you full access. The locals make the best guides, and at least a few of them always greet visitors at the gates and offer tours around their compact village. Put Tenganan Aga Village at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tenganan vacation planner.

    Goods there today, with a donation and entry in the book you can bring the village local guides visit. Here lived old traditions. Worth a visit. Front of it there is a courtyard on the coffee (Luwak coffee) is produced. A great tour and tasting is for little money. Very much recommended. Extremely nice staff.

    ... but 10/10 for a walk with a guide to the related 'foreign' village. Ask him to explain the situation, which is pretty sad. The people of the village are very rich for the Balinese, they rent since the 1960s land foreign as they call home and which is located in the jungle. One-half of production automatically goes to the village of Aga. In addition, villagers from the jungle cannot pick jack-fruit, reserved for the village of Aga... Every piece of land in a "little chef" Aga that sits on a bench in the jungle for the fall of the fruit. Do not buy anything in the village, they produce nothing! Or almost. The majority of the achievements, braiding and hats come from villages in the jungle. Prefer to enter the jungle and go near the rice fields, the real craftsmen are the! The prices are close to half, and at least they receive their money. A Word, find a guide to the village next door who at least will show you the true face of the scene.

Where to stay in Tenganan

There are few accommodation options within the small village of Tenganan, but you'll find plenty of places to stay in the nearby region of Candidesa and in East Bali in general. In Candidesa you'll find very good value budget-friendly hotels located a short walking distance from the beach, or even right on it. These also offer air-conditioning and on-site restaurants. If you're willing to pay a little bit more, there are more locations right on the beach with high-quality restaurants, swimming pools, and spas.
