Abstract: In 2012, UNESCO has designated several subak areas in Bali as world cultural heritage (WBD), because they have various extraordinary values, namely various norms, concepts, and life practices that can be applied to all human beings regardless of religious differences, beliefs, country and generation. According to UNESCO (2012) there are three extraordinary universal values of the Subak area that have been designated as WBD, namely the implementation of the Tri Hita Karana philosophy (three causes of life balance), an egalitarian democratic system and the role of the Subak temple network in managing lowland rice agroecology with a focus on aspects of spirituality. The main focus of educational tourism is to increase awareness by participating in maintaining the integrity of the environment (local culture) through a willingness to contribute to increasing the income of local communities.
