How is Ubud in general?
Ubud is a cultural hub as beautiful as the nature that surrounds it
Ubud is a major centre of the Balinese culture and local spirituality that has attracted artists and travelers for nearly a century. Although its ever-increasing popularity means that this area is now sometimes as busy as Bali’s southern neighborhoods, the development of Ubud has been more focused on maintaining traditional culture.
It is still one of the best places to visit temples, see Balinese art, observe cultural dances and performances, and practice yoga and a healthy lifestyle. Perhaps take an interest in spiritual healers and traditional medicine, or purchase local handicrafts. Ubud’s cooler climate and lush vegetation also make it ideal for an escape from the heat of Bali’s beaches. Just watch out for the mischievous monkeys that inhabit the forests surrounding Ubud.
