One of the things that I truely like approximately Canggu is the bohemian subculture. As you discover Canggu you could locate masses of murals on the partitions and within the cafes and eating places. The mural on the Old’s man bar is one in all my favorites.

In the frenzy to improvement Canggu has lost quite a few its rice fields, however you may nevertheless find a few.
