Bali Authentic Experience: Visiting Tenganan Village

19 August 2019 | Bali Indonesia

The birds are chirping and the trees are waving. A slow breeze blows into my face as I step on the the ground of Tenganan Pegringsingan village. A pleasant welcome from the nature makes me feel that this trip is going to be great.

Tenganan village is inhabited by Bali Aga tribe, which is claimed as the original tribe in Bali. In the middle of modernization that affects Bali tourism, Tenganan village stays true to its tradition.

Altos de Chavon, A Charming Man-made Village in Dominican Republic

15 August 2019 | Dominican Republic

My hands are full of tourism brochures when I arrive at the tourist information center in La Romana. La Romana is a popular destination in the south of Dominican Republic. I am looking for an alternative option outside the beaches and I spot Altos de Chavon.

Visiting Altos de Chavon is like going back to the past. It is a 16th century replica of Mediterranean village and designed by the local architect Jose Antonio Caro and Italian designer Roberto Copa.
