    Take a walk on the dry side.....

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I’ve often heard remarks
    from visitors about how
    one does not see starving people in Bali.

    If you have the time
    and care to look,
    you can travel between Amed and Candi Dasa
    via the seafront road.

    It will take longer,
    but in East Bali's Karangasem Regency,
    one witnesses one of
    the most impoverished regions
    where families are living below
    the poverty-line.

    The other indigent region is
    located in North Bali Regency of Buleleng.

    If you have the charity streak in you,
    these could be good locations to give away gifts.
    It can be a bit agressive
    (but not dangerous)
    in some areas,
    so do go accompanied by a local.

    7 Kilometers from Candi Dasa

    If you happen to be staying
    in Candidasa or traveling
    on the east coast, then a stop at
    Tanganan may be worth the visit.

    Just 7 km off the beaten path of Candidasa.

    Somewhat like the original Bali,
    with the exception that everyone
    wants to sell you something,
    this village is tranquil and
    somewhat like a 'living museum'.

    When you go in,
    you pay a small donation,
    you enter a village that is 500 m long
    and 250 m wide and is surrounded by
    a natural wall with 3 gates.

    As you visit the village,
    you will be invited into people homes
    where they will have several items on display for sale.

    They continue to practice traditional arts
    such as making baskets, Lontar leaf books and calendars.
