The guide taking us through the village seemed very disinterested. Also looked very disappointed with us giving the village "only" 100,000 ruppiah on top of their usual daily fee they received from the trip agency.

A donation is required for entering this traditional village. You are allowed to enter the houses to see the way of life here. Unfortunately it feels like tourist trap as from every house you can buy tshirts, sarongs, bracelets etc

They say it is a natural and inhabited village... but from the entry way, and having your personal guide follow you around and explain what you are seeing, we realise most of it is set up just to raise tourist dollar funds for the villagers....More

It can be interesting to walk around these small cabins and observe the conditions in which people lived, the houses of bamboo and thatch, and handicraft. Although it looks a bit scenic, rather like a small performance for a tourist
