Buddhism and artisanry
Batik is printing technique undertaken entirely by hand. La Maison Nil Manel offers guests the chance to discover the different stages of this graceful craft with a tour to a much loved workshop in a tiny village.
Mask making is another traditional craft that guests can explore in the native village with its museum and shop.
The spiritual element of this tour involves journeying a few kilometres into the surrounding area. There we find a temple with a 25 metre Buddha accessed up a long flight of steps. Guests are rewarded at the top with stunning panoramic views of the countryside.
