Mutual help in Balinese Society

Mutual help (nguopin) is an element of Balinese society that penetrates into every aspect of Balinese life. Among the individual, mutual help is applied in various activities from household duties (digging a well, building a house, fixing the roof, cutting a tree, etc), agricultural activities (ploughing, maintaining the water ways and water distribution facilities, planting, weeding, harvesting, etc), preparing and holding a ceremony in the temple, household compound, or rice field. The mutual help is based on the simple rule of reciprocation “I scratch yours, you scratch mine”. The aid of energy, time, sometimes material should be reciprocated by the same resources.

Villa Canggu

The spectacular 4-bedroom Villa Canggu, complete with 20-meter swimming pool, is located just 50 meters from the beach in the tiny fishing village of Nelayan – literally meaning ‘fisherman’ – close to Canggu on Bali’s southwest coast. Designed to maximize the natural light, and catch the cool breezes even at the hottest time of year, the property offers a blend of air-conditioned comfort and tropical open-air living. There are numerous relaxation areas, so guests will always find a private spot for peace and quiet. In fact, a large family or group of people could stay at the villa and still lose each other within its depths. In addition to this, guests have the choice of a number of different eating areas, all of which present a unique atmosphere, enhanced by the constant sound of the waves together with wonderful views of the beach and the Indian Ocean.
