When people think about Bali, one might think about gorgeous beaches and vibrant nightlife, so it seems like a relaxing vacation on Bali seems impossible. However, that scene happens only in Kuta, the most developed area in Bali. So if you want a quiet, relaxing or memorable vacation, definitely consider a visit to the town of Ubud, what many people believe is the “arts and culture centre” of Bali. Most of the town consists of galleries and museums, where you can see local art being featured. It’s also home to plenty of delicious restaurants and even a monkey forest!
