Travel back to a simpler time with a visit to Tenganan Ancient Village, one of area's oldest communities. Home to the Bali Aga, the original inhabitants of Bali, this settlement features traditional architecture and preserves its age-old techniques for producing textiles. Surrounded by a wall, the village consists of simple homes with green hills as their backdrop. While no motorized vehicles can enter the settlement, you can walk in through one of three main gates, where a small donation grants you full access. The locals make the best guides, and at least a few of them always greet visitors at the gates and offer tours around their compact village. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Tenganan Ancient Village by using our Manggis trip planner.

Definitely another tourist shopping trap. Really do not require a long time here. People are not all authentic.
