Ubud is a small town on the Island of Bali, it is perfectly located among rice paddies on side and the great My Batur on another. We stayed for two days in Ubud and how I wished we could have stayed Longer. There are any private villas available in Ubus and you have a variety to choose from. I stayed at Lotus Cottage in Devi’s Place.(You can read about my stay here). This whole place is Lush green with rice fields and coffee plantation. There are many things to do in Ubud. You can just rent a bike in Bali and you are good to go (in my case Bike was provided by the Resort at INR 500/ day only).The places I visited on my trip to Ubud are mentioned below:
The Monkey Forest lies within the village of Padangtegal, which owns it. It is located centrally in the town. There are many of point of interest here like 700 monkeys, 186 species of trees,huge forest area.
Ubud is known for its rice fields. A trip down this fields is a must.
