Ubud, a town an hour ride away from Bali, is well-known to many for its traditional crafts and dance. There are a few attractions that could not be missed. For example, the Goa Gajah, a cave that is known for its stone carvings of Hindu gods and a rich history that dates back to the 9th century is a must-visit.
After you’re done admiring these ancient carvings, a 5-minute drive will take you to Setia Darma House of Mask and Puppets. It may look a little unusual at first but pay close attention and you will discover its superb craftsmanship. You will be a 15-minute ride away from Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, also known as the Monkey Forest to many.
There are so many other attractions we would love to share with you, but allow us to reveal the list of private pool villas located in Ubud before we move on to introduce the other must-see places!
