Being open air, you can enjoy the breeze which may come at you from any side, listen to the rustling of leaves, and smell the lively odours of the jungle. There’s no better way to fully immerse yourself in the rainforest!

20. Experience life as the local farmers do – Bee Cafe at Adiwana Bee House

If you’re after an authentic Indonesian experience, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more authentic than this one.

Built with the irrigation community and farmers in mind, Bee Cafe is where the locals congregate during their breaks, where they come together and rest between shifts of hard labour in the paddy fields.
