Globe Trekker

Indonesia: Bali and Sulawesi (#304)

Shilpa starts her trek in Bali, arriving in Kuta, where she surfs before relaxing with a massage from the village's world famous masseuses. She travels to Ubud, visiting the rice terraces and trying her hand at mask making. Shilpa climbs the volcano of Gunung Batur, cooking breakfast in a geyser along the way. She attends the New Year's festival before leaving Bali for the island of Sulawesi. She takes a bus to Rantepao, where she discovers spectacular scenery and the noisy marketplace, a marked contrast to the tranquility of Bali. Shilpa visits the boat-shaped houses of the Torajans and attends a traditional funeral. [57 minutes] Closed Captioning
