My name is Made and I was born in Payangan, a famous wood carving village, where I started carving wood at the age of 14.
I come from a family of farmers, and planted everything from bananas, chillis, durians, cocoa, cloves, and vanilla to rice until I moved to Sanur in 2003, nearby to my cousin Putu who often comes over.

I am passionate about wood carving, landscaping, building and love swimming with my young son Kadek around my house or on Sanur beach. I jog every morning to relax and keep in shape because I eat all day (a Balinese tradition!). I have been a tour guide for 10 years and love meeting people from all around the world.

One of my favourite things to do is bring guests to my hometown, where I can show them where I grew up and where my heart resides.

    Excellent experience. Highly recommended.

    Our host picked us up from our hotel and took us to his home close by. It was very lovely and he and his wife hosted us with coffee, tea and lunch while we learnt carving. First we learnt frangipani carving on carrot and then moved onto watermelon roses. It was really engaging and the time passed very quickly. It is a wonderful thing to share with friends or older children. Highly recommended!
