Following in Julia Roberts footsteps on Bali Island and the making of the world-famous film Eat Pray Love, this island is becoming a touristic place on a world-wide scale. Despite the crowds of visitors, you will always be able to find a few quieter spots where you can disconnect and listen to just your thoughts, and for me the best place in which to do this was Pupuan.
In these rice terraces, I was able to walk and enjoy the views as well as imagine the rituals and ceremonies that the Balinese celebrate time and time again... Rice is not only the means of subsistence of many Balinese families, but is also a part of religious life (with offerings for example). For all these reasons, the visit to Pupuan and its terraces is a must if you want to gain a deep understanding of the interesting and rich Balinese culture.
