We at Property in Bali urge everyone to Stop building Villas, Shops and Warehouses in or near active ricefields in Bali. Any construction will disturb the irrigation system and eventually ruin the ricefields and traditional agriculture in the area. One construction will invite more investors to construct further buildings. More developments will inevitably ruin the villages ricefield irrigation in Bali. Basically, that ‘perfect ricefield paradise view’ will last few years tops before others have done the same thing next to you. If you really care for Bali and it’s people, then why not buy an already existing building in a residential area instead of building new? If you are going to build then at least please do not build in ricefields, natural lands that need conservation and build in a clear residential land zone. No matter what Property Agents say. No matter what any Land Owners and Land Sellers may say, local or not. Do not take their word for it as their word only speak the language of Dollars and will not express any environmental or cultural considerations. Let’s not support Investors building in ricefields and take distance from this kind of behavior by setting an example. If not for the sake of yourself then for the sake of Bali i advice everyone to stop purchasing ricefield or natural lands for developments or constructions. Let’s not ruin the agricultural heritage Bali possess with our own ambitions to get a slice of Bali or enrich ourselves further. We are born into this world with nothing and will leave this world with nothing. Buy, Rent or Build in Residential areas is the most respectful way to live and visit the ricefields and green areas by strolling there if you wish. There is absolutely no need to put a villa or house in the middle that natural beauty which you can visit anytime you like. Whenever someone builds in a ricefield that is the first step to ruin what made him build there in the first place. This is inevitable and a certainty. So, you see by making the decision to build a house in active agricultural lands you have already taken the first step to ruin that landscape and turn it into a residential land and land property circus, much to the distress of many local and silent rice farmers who cannot say anything to stop this from happening. Have the good judgement to not do this and set an example. Bali will treat us back the way we treat her. If we treat her with respect and dignity then that will come back to us. Thank you.
