We will provide a field trip touring on the last day of our event on 28th January 2017. All field trip participants should be ready at 8 am at Swiss BelResort Watu Jimbar (Jalan Tamblingan 99, Sanur). Some location that we will visit are Subak Museum Bali, Rice Terrace at Jatiluwih and Lunch at Royal Tulip Baturiti. As consideration that some participants probably need to go to airport, we are considering about to drop back the participants to 2 locations after the field trip which is Swiss BelResort Watu Jimbar Sanur and Ngurah Rai Airport. The details of the field trip location as bellow:
1.Subak Museum Bali
The Subak Museum is a repository that showcases the centuries-old Balinese agrarian way of life-the management of rice fields and its irrigation systems collectively known as ‘subak’. The Subak Museum specifically collects and preserves all data and items connected to the Balinese agricultural traditions. The museum is both a tourism and educational site, divided into several sections.
An open museum section includes a miniaturized version of the subak system meant to exhibit the various agricultural activities involved, such as irrigation, pools, and channeling into paddies. The main building acts as an information center, housing an audio-visual room, study and exhibition room that displays various traditional agricultural tools used by Balinese farmers to tend the fields.
Once a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site candidate, Jatiluwih rice terraces comprises over 600Ha of rice fields that follow the flowing hillside topography of the Batukaru mountain range. These are well-maintained by a traditional water management cooperative is known as ‘subak’, which dates back to the 9th century. The cooperative itself eventually won recognition as a dominant factor in Bali’s ‘cultural landscape’ entry on the heritage list. You will find the largest and most picturesque expanse of paddies in Bali and perhaps the whole of Indonesia here.
3.Royal Tulip Baturiti
