Ubud is located in the uplands of Bali and is a completely different atmosphere to brash and busy areas like Kuta or Seminyak. This part of the island has long been known as its cultural capital and you will find colorful art galleries, engaging museums, and dainty temples all over the area.
There is also the beautiful Royal Palace in the center of town and all of the cultural attractions are set against valleys and terraces of jade-hued rice fields. Ubud is also the home of some of the finest dining in Bali and there are a wealth of healthy restaurants here serving up vegetarian and vegan fare, or you can head to some of the resorts in the area and enjoy some upscale dining.
There are so many things to do in Ubud. From getting a massage, eating, doing a cooking lesson, shopping, visiting an art gallery or learning some local arts and crafts. The local Ubud market is also excellent. From walking through the rice fields, to whitewater rafting. There are also lots of tours and day trips available here. If you want to experience Bali’s beautiful scenery, culture and meet the locals, try a bicycle tour through the villages.
