PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT We are extremely excited to announce our partnership in community-based tourism for better economic opportunities for local communities in Cultural Landscape of Bali Province (CLBP). We are partnering with Troveko (troveko.com), a Singapore-based startup, to provide services for visitors where they can immerse themselves with the tradition and cultural heritage of Bali and interact with local families and experience local lifestyle. As for the pilot stage, we are collaborating with 4 local families in 4 Subak within Catur Angga Batukaru to host our visitors. They will be the prominent storytellers of rituals, cullture, and agricultural life in CLBP. We are planning to expand the numbers in the coming months, to ensure that the true experience of community-based tourism be implemented while preserving the authenticity of CLBP.
Did you know that Pura Gunung Kawi is associated with the emergence of the ancient irrigation systems, subaks and water temples along Pakerisan Watershed dating to the 11th century A.D.? #Bali #CulturalLandscape #PuraGunungKawi #UNESCO #WorldHeritage
We are honored to host the group from University of Rhode Island #URI (@universityofri) for their Bali leg this year. We thanked Professor Thomas Boving and his team for their interests and eagerness to learn more about Bali's World Heritage and Bali's current development. It is our wish that Bali's heritage could be preserved for years to come, as well as actively opposed all excessive development which proven to be unsustainable in our home islands. #URIWinterJTerm
