If I had to choose my favorite town in Bali, it would be Ubud. Ubud is surrounded by lush rice paddies and has great places to explore. Ubud is also pretty touristic but during the low season, I didn’t feel surrounded by so many tourists (see map here).

What to Do in Ubud

TOP 1: Rice Fields

Ubud is surrounded by terrific rice terraces. Tegallalang is one of them (see map here). The view is breathtaking in every direction you look.


Price: Tegallalang rice terrace is free BUT some locals may ask you a donation. Prepare between 5 000 and 10 000 rupiahs ($0,50-$1 so less than 1 euro).

Tip: Some people may ask you some donation while walking through the fields. Don’t hesitate to say no or keep some coins in your pocket…

TOP 2: Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

When you visit Ubud, there is no way you can miss Monkey Forest (see map here). It was for us a really funny experience. See the funny video here. The walk through the forest is also really beautiful and refreshing 🙂

Tip: Be cautious with the monkeys. They can be aggressive if you carry any food with you. Take care of your stuff, the monkeys love stealing from tourists 😉 they even got into Adrian’s pocket to look for some snacks.

Price: 50 000 Rupiah (about $4,6 AUD, 3 euros)

Where to eat in Ubud

Warung Biah Biah

During your stay in Ubud, do yourself a f(l)avor and eat at Warung Biah Biah. We found this place after visiting Monkey Forest while wandering around Ubud. This little Warung surprised us. What a taste sensation and such low prices! All of the Indonesian dishes were delicious, the presentation on banana leaves was beautiful, and the service was perfect. The restaurant is cute, sets up in a cozy atmosphere. What a great vibe! Do not miss this place!

Where to Stay in Ubud

Pondok Kutuh

Pondok Kutuh was the perfect base during our time in Ubud. The guesthouse offered basic but clean and comfortable rooms with spacious bathroom in an ideal location. The included breakfasts were every morning delicious. The management was very friendly and always happy to help you with any information. 

Tip: If you stay for a few days in the same guesthouse, do not hesitate to negotiate the price with the owner. It always works 😉
