Done being fascinated in Klungkung, head over to the Tenganan Village in Karangasem which is located just about 45-minutes drive from our villa. The village is well-known for being one of the last living areas of Bali Aga, the indigenous people of Bali. It is also the only place to find the Balinese traditional cloth, Gringsing, which can take up to 5 years to make.
