Ubud. The Best of Bali



Bali stood out for us for two beautiful reasons - its culture and its flora. It is hard for me to imagine a place with more flowers in bloom at once than this island of love and gods... And from the traditions point of view, it's pretty intriguing that places like this still exist. Nowhere else have I seen people so busy with praising the gods and temples so packed with offerings.

Ubud is the cultural center of Bali. It is THE place to visit. From arts and crafts, to the amazing architecture that can be found every step of the way, Ubud was for us the quintessence of Bali. Every element that makes the Balinese culture so interesting can be found here, and for this, Ubud remained in our memory as the best of Bali.

  2. We spent two weeks in Ubud last winter, and found it to be magical. I'm missing seeing all those canang sari (flower offerings) that are so ubiquitous there!

  10. Beautiful photos! Ubud is definitely my favorite place in Indonesia. Last summer I returned to spend some time there with friends. The combination of beautiful scenery, great culture and wonderful food made it a trip I'll never forget.

  11. Love the pictures you posted on Ubud. The colors are just amazing and the represent the beauty and uniqueness of Ubud perfectly. I agree with many of those who have commented, Ubud is also one of my favorite villages in Bali. Eventhough I have been there many times I am never bored and am still surprised of its beauty (despite the larger growing crowd). Besides Ubud center the nearby hamlets are wonderful to visit too such as Nyukuning, Campuhan, Penestanan.
