Bali - Ubud

 

Ubud, the artistic centre of Bali is a wonderful place in which to enjoy the best of Bali – the scenery, culture and the ambience of Bali's hill country. Just an hour or so by car from Bali's beach resorts, a stay in Ubud makes a great combination with a beach holiday in Bali. Ubud has some of the best boutique hotels in Bali with outstanding views over the river valleys and rice terraces. The villages surrounding Ubud offer a great chance to see Bali’s artistic heritage brought to life. We highly recommend a 3 or 4 night stay in Ubud in combination with a Bali beach resort to create an ideal Bali holiday or honeymoon.

Monkeys and Temples

This afternoon and evening excursion visits Alas Kedaton, one of Bali’s famed monkey forests, the Royal Temple at Mengwi and the famous Tanah Lot Sea Temple in time for sunset.

Alas Kedaton is one of Bali’s most famous monkey forests, featuring towering nutmeg trees unique to this area and sacred to the Balinese.

The forest is full of macaque monkeys, and no trip to Bali is complete without seeing them.

Continue to Mengwi, and visit the former Royal Temple, Pura Taman Ayun, built in 1634 and arguably one of the most beautiful on the island.

This excursion finishes with a sunset visit to Tanah Lot, probably the most photographed location in Bali. Perched precariously on a rock just off shore, Tanah Lot is particularly beautiful (and romantic) as the sun sets over the Bali Sea.

Village Life

Meet with a local astrologer, learn traditional crafts, enjoy a hands-on cooking course and immerse yourself in Balinese village life: this guided Bali day trip is an ideal introduction to the local culture in Ubud, interacting with the friendly villagers of Mas.

Today you will get a true taste of the local culture, traditions and lifestyles with our ‘Balinese Experience’. 

Transfer the short distance from your Ubud hotel to Mas, a small village located 10-15 km from Ubud and known for its wood carving tradition. Here you will have a chance to take part in activities that are ‘uniquely Bali’. 

You will first receive a blessing by a priest and then meet with an astrologer who’ll tell you more about your destiny by using ancient methods, translated by your local guide.

It’s then time to enter the traditional Balinese compound: work with a local wood-carver to learn the methods of making a handicraft. Learn new skills and become immersed in the typical life of a Balinese villager in Mas. The carver will assist you in starting to carve.

Afterwards assist in making Balinese dishes and watch the local chefs processing fresh ingredients to make a delicious meal. Then have a walk around the village while the dishes are prepared. Return to the house for lunch.

After lunch transfer back to your hotel.
