Ubud is a city located in the central part of Bali Island, Indonesia. It is the cultural heart of the Balinese culture. Even though it is really touristy, Ubud is a magnificient city with an endless number of Hindu temples.
While being slightly more expensive than any places on Java Island, there are a lot of cheap food and accomodation options. The Balinese food is a wonderful blend of flavors, give it a try! Just wandering in the streets of Ubud and exploring the number of traditional guesthouses is an amazing experience in itself!
A bicycle is enough to get around Ubud’s surroundigs such as the Tegalagan rice terraces, the Goa Gajah temple and Bukit Campuhan.
