Crops such as rice, sugar cane, coffee, copra, and tobacco are grown on the beautifully terraced hill sides situated all over the island.

    Canggu is a great location if you are in need of a holiday in quiet surroundings however, depending on traffic, it is only a 10 minutes drive to Seminyak with its bars, boutiques, restaurants and more.
