We had an interesting visiting to Tenganan, and our guide was happy to answer our questions. We were also able to watch our guide's wife do some weaving, and see some of the beautiful fabric she had made. Probably understandably we spent more time in...More

To be honest, after reading few reviews here i didn't want to visit this place. Fortunately me and my GF came there and it was amazing. We were almost alone there only with local people. Yes, they wanted to talk with us but no one...More

Gosh, so worth the visit, it feels like you are going back in time. The old buildings have little shops set-up so you can purchase their arts and crafts. Get a guided tour to you learn the history. So close to Candidasa. A fabulous outing.

Pretty small village!! Didn't feel that there was much special here. Our guide, a textile businessman tried to sell us their ikat textile items but the price was just too high, so we didn't buy. You could easily miss it without missing any Bali experience!!

We expected to see more "real Balinese life" but in fact you walk along the village (very nice and worth seeing the architecture) and you can visit in fact the houses/shops/workshops offering exactly the same products just different quality and different prices

hired a driver for a tour of the eastern area. Tenganan village was on the agenda. Well worth the visit. Pay your chosen donation fee and a guide will walk you through the village compound housing approx 250 ancestrial inhabitants. Look into their working areas...More

Yes it’s a village where Balinese people actually live but they’ve turned it into a souvenir Village.

I was fascinated to find about more about Bali Aga, not as a secluded culture still into the 1970's. Our villa host drove us there and left us to walked around by ourselves. I felt very uncomfortable. The village has clearly been consciously commercialised for...More
