As one walks down the path of the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Japan, a feeling of tranquility sets in. Flanked by the towering green stalks on either side, these plants are majestic and powerful despite its rather simple stature. The rustle of their leaves also create a unique sound that may at first seem eerie, but will eventually surround you with a sense of calm. The distinctiveness of this sound has included it in Japan's list of '100 Soundscapes of Japan'. It is no wonder the Arashimaya Bamboo Grove is high on the every traveler's dream list.

Situated amongst lush and hilly greenery against the backdrop of the famous rice fields of Ubud in Bali, Bambu Indah is an eco-escape fit for the spirited traveler. As the center of the arts in Bali, the Ubud experience is often described as highly spiritual - and even more so in Bambu Indah, located within the local villages where one is able to immerse in the Balinese culture completely.

Translated, Bambu Indah means 'Beautiful Bamboo', a name derived from the different bamboo structures built around the property. From meditation spaces, tree houses, to balconies and bridges, be amazed by the solidity and sheer size of the bamboos used in these structures along with the stories of how they are constructed. Nearby, the international Green School is made entirely from bamboo - a vision of John and Cynthia Hardy of a green, sustainable future. See more of Bambu Indah here
