TABANAN, - Previously, several Delegates from the 10th World Water Forum (WWF) visited the Jatiluwih Tourist Destination  in Penebel District, Tabanan Regency. It was the turn of the WWF Thailand Delegation to visit a tourist destination with views of the  terrace rice fields on Thursday (May 23, 2024).

The group of 15 people was led by Dr. Surasri Kittimonthon as Secretary General of the Thai Water System. Arriving at Jatiluwih  Destination  at around 11.05, AM he was immediately greeted by The Manager of Jatiluwih Destination  I Ketut Purna accompanied by Head of Jatiluwih Village I Nengah Kartika. The delegation from Thailand was garlanded with flowers as a sign of welcome.

The Manager of Jatiluwih Destination  I Ketut Purna directed the group to Subak Jatiluwih by following the Subak road while explaining the condition of Subak Jatiluwih starting from its history which is a legacy handed down from the ancestors of the people in Jatiluwih Village, including the extensive expanse of terrace rice fields, rice field processing, the Subak system which is still sustainable until today, up to the price of grain after harvest.

Touring Subak to the photo spots that had been prepared in the middle of the rice fields further fascinated the delegation from Thailand.  This moment was used as a place for selfies as well as group photos. After touring the group were treated to lunch together.

Dr. Surasri Kittimonthon as Secretary General of the Thai Water System said that his party was very impressed because Jatiluwih was able to maintain this Subak in a sustainable manner. "The Subak System is very good and should be passed on to children and grandchildren," he explained.

Meanwhile The Manager of Jatiluwih Destination  I Ketut Purna said that the visiting WWF Delegation from Thailand also admired the agricultural system in Jatiluwih. "Even though their agriculture is better than ours, they expressed their interest in Subak, and even wanted to learn more about agriculture in our village, Jatiluwih," he stressed.

Before the WWF Thailand Delegation,  Jatiluwih Destination was also visited by the WWF Delegation from Zambia East Africa Dr Musonda Mumba Secretary General of the Convention on Wetlands . (Md )
