Planting Rice


I have a strange question, but I will be going to Bandung in November with my daughter. She is really interested in learning to plant rice while there. Do they even plant rice in November? Also, is there any farms or places where tourists can even learn to do such a thing?

Thanks in advance to everyone!

Planting rice depends on the season and the variant of rice that each farmer grows. However, if you are interested to planting the rice and see how traditional people lives, you can always go to the cultural village which designed to accommodate tourists and open all year round (the planting rice experience here is as real as how the farmers do it, but it won't be counted for production). One of the cultural village example is "Desa Wisata Sari Bunihayu" http://www.desawisata-saribunihayu.com/ (website is in Indonesian, use google translate for translation to English) It is located at Subang, around 2 hours drive from Bandung

<<where tourists can even learn to do such a thing?>>

Process is rather dirty and involves health risk ( say.... water snakes). Are you sure you`d like you daughter doing this??????

Hi Mongoshrdr,

If you wish to see this and even participate you could do a homestay programe in Cianjur with Yudi Sujana and family http://www.cianjuradventure.com/

and I am sure Yudi could arrnage for you to see rice planting first hand.

Have known Yudi and family since Sept 2000 when I went to participate in his programme and do volunteer teaching at the local schools.

Cirque - Thank you so much for the link....i have sent a message and very quickly recieved a reply. they stated that I have to have at least 30 people in my group in order to participate. So that is off the list.

Schonefeld - i have raised the dangers to her, but being a teenager she can be quite stubborn lol....she stated "this is a rare opportunity for me to have my wish come true....please" .... well i gave in..so now i'm looking for a place to learn to plant rice. Thank you for your concerns, well appreciated it!

Pamela - WOW!! this look awesome!!! get to experience the true culture! Thank you so much for the link...I will be contacting them shortly!
