Going beyond beaches, Ubud in Bali boosts beautiful mountainous landscapes, green paddy fields and small villages. With a laidback atmosphere, this part of the island is famous for the Monkey Forest, Balinese cooking schools and cultural Barong dance performances. From walking through Tegalalang rice terrace to tasting Civet coffee in a local plantation, Ubud is a destination that suits all ages.
Whilst most other parts of Bali are hot and humid, Ubud is elevated 200 meters above sea level, which keeps this area relatively cool throughout the year. This makes it the perfect nature retreat for those looking for some quiet reflections and rejuvenation. Aside from luxury villas, affordable accommodation abounds in picturesque Ubud! Featured in an American romantic comedy, ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, Ubud is also the place closely associated with spiritual healing.
Just like other popular locations in Bali, the night is always young! You can find bars here, albeit more laidback atmosphere with calmer music like swings and jazz.
