RACHEL, UNITED STATES, MARCH 2017

"My time with Duara was really special because after one month in Bali, I finally was taking time to get to know the locals. I went to Sebatu – one thing to note is that one the way there and back you pass the most beautiful sites including one famous tiered rice field. You can stop and take photos here. The town itself is too cute and my guide knew everyone! We went to the local school to see the kids."
