Culture Subject Trip to Bali

Indonesia is an archipelago of 17506 islands, of which Bali is by far the most popular.

Bali is also called "Island of the Gods" and you can find more than 10000 temples on the island. The Balinese believe in spirits and nature gods and worship their faith with respect and grace. For them, it's about balancing the spiritual and material worlds. You will therefore experience an island full of ceremonies, temples, special rituals and magical atmosphere.


The lessons

We will delve into Balinese culture, religion and history.

We need to learn about custom and usage.

We get in touch with the school we'll be working with.

We go into the kitchen and prepare some of the Balinese national dishes: Nasi Goreng, Satay and Mee Goreng.

We train a little, then the trip to the top of Mt. Batur will be easier.

We will learn various polite phrases in Bahasa (the official language).


The trip

The journey is still very new. We therefore expect you to be open to the opportunities and obstacles that arise along the way.

The two leaders of the trip have both travelled in Indonesia and Bali. We have some wishes and dreams for you. We want to go behind the mass tourism and show you the "real" Bali.

Part of the journey is to collaborate with a local school. Whether you will be part of the teaching or will be doing some of the teaching yourself, we don't know yet. But we want to build relationships between you and local children.

Bali is an agricultural country and we will follow in the footsteps of a farmer who will show us how to plant and harvest rice. Bali is known for its green rice paddies.

Bali has several active volcanoes and we will climb one of them. This is Mt. Batur at 1720 m. We are picked up early in the morning and walk, with flashlight, along narrow lava paths to the top. At the crater rim we wait for the sun to rise, after which we enjoy the breakfast we brought.

Bali has an incredible number of charity projects that benefit both animals and people. We get involved in volunteering over 1-2 days.

Other activities during the trip include:

  • Cooking course
  • Traditional market
  • Waterfalls and cave visits
  • Balinese Kecak Dance
  • The holy springs at Tirta Empul
  • Village life
