UNUSUAL SUSTAINABLE ACTIVITIES TO DO IN BALI
1. Kajeng Rice Field Walk
What could be more beautiful than being able to take in the flora and fauna of this wonderfully tropical island in all its glory? The lush green of the rice fields has always fascinated visitors in Bali. Most people walk the famous Campuhan Ridge Walk in bali. But if you want to go a bit off the beaten track, you should take the Kajeng Rice Field Walk. Especially in the early morning, this walk is an absolute highlight. Past Ubud's walk of fame, you will find small stores and local businesses where you can support the local population.

2. Nyang Nyang Beach
Of course there are many beautiful beaches in Bali. But if you want to find untouched nature with crystal clear water, you should take an afternoon trip to Nyang Nyang beach. A rather steep road down the cliffs leads directly to the beach. Alternatively, you can also walk down this road. once there, it is worth taking a long walk to the end. it is rare to meet people here who walk to the end. but since this beach does not stop at the plastic problem: take a bag with you every time you walk on the beach and collect the plastic lying around. the environment will thank you for it and you have done something good during your vacation! for you and for other beach visitors

3. Scroll around local markets
The best way to get to know the local cuisine and get closer to the local population is to stroll around the markets. In Bali, these always take place in the early morning hours. It is best to ask at your guest house/villa/hotel owner and let yourself be captivated by the scents & the hustle and bustle of the local markets. This not only creates closeness and shows interest, but is also the perfect start to the day. Tip: try out rambutan and mangosteen!
4. Sunday Market at Samadi Bali
Samadi is generally a place not to be missed in Canggu. From yoga classes and other holistic practices you will find here not only a great organic market but also an adjacent restaurant with all kinds of vegan stuff. The Sunday market is however the highlight of the week. Here you will find everything from jewelry, spices, oils or food that your heart desires and local artists and small entrepreneurs have to offer.
