Experience small-town Bali in Ubud, an atmospheric town surrounded by small settlements, farms, and rice paddies.
Let the collections at Neka Art Museum and Sugeng Ariawan Arts Gallery capture your imagination. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mount Kawi and Tirta Empul Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Ubud: Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple (in Sebatu), Taman Ayun Temple (in Mengwi) and Tabanan (Jatiluwih Green Land & Lake Beratan). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Munduk Waterfall, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, stroll through Amed Beach, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.
