A Senator of the Tabanan region has confirmed that they will develop thousands of acres of rice fields in Tabanan into tourist spots.
The Secretary of Commission I from Tabanan House of Representatives, I Gusti Nyoman Omardani, confirmed that 3,100 acres of rice plantations in the southern part of the Tabanan region are to be replaced with tourist spots.
This is because most of the existing rice fields in these areas have become significantly less productive in the last several years.
“We plan to switch the function of 3,100 acres of rice fields from Nyanyi Beach, Kediri to Soka Beach, Selemadeg in South Tabanan. We will turn them into tourist areas due to their lack of a permanent irrigation system,” Omardani said.
He also explained that many rice fields in these areas have already been turned into residential areas.
Omardani plans to present a top view image taken by a drone to the central government as part of his proposal.
“We will present the requirements to the central government, including the top view image as requested. We plan to develop some parts of our rice plantations, while the remaining 16,200 acres of rice fields will continue to operate normally,” Omardani concluded.
