The Activity


  • Live with a local family in the coastal village of Jasri for 2 days
  • Experience their daily life and routine
  • Explore the beautiful surrounding of Jasri
  • Do a rice field trekking and learn about the local farming methods
  • Duration: 2 days
  • Minimum number of people is 2 with a maximum of 6


Our coastal village Jasri is located in the eastern part of Bali. Together with all the villagers we started a collaboration to open up our village to people who would be interested to experience typical Balinese village life. During these 2 days warm-hearted people and Balinese friendliness will surround you.

As soon as you arrive, you will meet your homestay family where you will stay this night. You can relax and sip lemonade while taking up the beautiful surrounding of Jasri. You have time to wander around, visit the beach and speak with the friendly locals. You can learn how to make traditional Balinese food while helping the woman of the house preparing the food. Balinese people love fish and coconut so you will definitely find one of these ingredients in your food.

The next morning after having enjoyed a delicious breakfast of toast, fresh fruits and juice you will be taken to the rice field in the western part of the village. Here we will start our rice field trekking in the lush and green surrounding enjoying the fresh coastal air. Meet the farmers working in their rice fields and learn about the farming methods they use to cultivate the rice. Explore the wide variety of vegetation and plants that grow along the edge of the fields. Some of them can be used as food and others are also used for traditional medicine. You will find banana trees, lemon grass, turmeric, jackfruit, palm, coconut, pineapples that grow side by side. Fresh young coconut juice is provided on the way picked by a farmer. The trekking will take about 3 hours.

After this morning exercise you will be served a savory lunch at your homestay with the family after which it is time to say goodbye.

Price includes:

  • Accommodation
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • English-speaking guide

Transportation to/from Jasri can be arranged for a very reasonable price.

Meet The People of Jasri

We, people of Jasri, work mostly as farmers, fishermen, traditional craftsmen and workers. We strongly hold our unique culture and tradition, and our lives are still very communal. We would love to share our culture with you and give a peek into our daily lives.


Jasri (Bali) - April 2017 We had a very pleasant stay at Wayans family in Jasri. My husband, two daughters (8 and 6 years old) and I visited Bali for a two week holiday. We really wanted to show our daughters the original live of Bali, hoping that this will contribute to an open mind for other cultures and interest in it. Wayan picked us up in Ubud for a reasonable price. The 2 hour drive to Jasri was entertaining, because Wayan already gave a lot of cultural information. His English is very good. When we arrived we were welcomed by his wife, we felt the warmth and love of the family. Wayan adjusted his program for our kids. They loved to play with the children of Wayans family and village. We made a nice stroll to the local beach with them and saw the local way of life. In the evening Wayan took us to a kind women in the village where we could learn how to make pottery. With a delicious meal cooked by Wayans wife and a Balinese dance of Wayans niece and her two girlfriends, we closed the day. After a nice sleep, with even air-condition in the room, Wayan showed us the next morning the marvelous rice paddies of Jasri. Cause the whole trekking would be too long for our daughters, we did only an hour walk. Instead, we visited the local school which was really nice and we visited Tirta Gangga. After a lovely lunch at Wayans home we said goodbye. We can certainly look back with satisfaction on our first experience with ''I like local'' and our stay at Wayan. We recommend his place and the organisation of Sanne, ''I like local'', to everybody and we are sure we will book a stay with locals in the future. Ebeline (the Netherlands)

The homestay and rice field trekking was fabulous. Wayan (Parsa) was very patient waiting for our delayed flight (over 3 hours at the airport) and welcomed us into his home with a fabulous home cooked dinner (by his wife) and Balinese dancing by his daughter and her friends. He was a lovely host. The following day, Wayan took us rice field trekking for a few hours, guiding us on long (but not strenuous) walk through the fields, and talking further about the village and the farmers, before finishing off at the beach. We then went back to sumptuous lunch made by Wayan before heading off to our next adventure. Overall, a fab homestay! And finally, the booking process was effortless, so a big thanks to Sanne and Wayan for that.
