    • Do I need 2 or 3 days to cover these in Ubud?

      by project2015 Online Now Jun 5, 2015 at 10:22 AM

      Dear fellow travellers,
      Is it possible to cover these in 2 days, or do I need 3? Would hiring a driver easen the process?
      I would like to see Monkey Forest, have a good walk at Tegallalang paddy field, visit Teba Sari Agrowisata for coffee tasting, have a walk thru Campuhan Ridge walk and visit Ubud palace, Arma museum and maybe Saraswati temple.

      Other then these do you suggest any special must-sees around Ubud?
      I hear that each detail of Ubud is impressive and it is worth of more than 2-3 days, but I would like to have the best plan with my conditions. Thank you very much.

      Accommodations near Kupu Kupu Barong Villas or closer to town

      by steven1117 Online Now Dec 31, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      I'd read some really conflicting reviews of the above place, and while the setting looks fantastic, the food looked awfully lacklustre and expensive. Given that it's a bit off the beaten path, are there any other places of the same range and style nearby that you could recommend? Or....even closer to town, but preferably with elevation.
      We arrive Friday evening.

      We will be in Ubud for 2 days only and are looking for fairly central accommodation. We want to see the Monkey Forest, and stroll around the sites (I don't want to have to hire a car). We'd also like to see some of the rice field (I do understand that without a car we'll be on the beaten track).

      We're after a private room, with ensuite. Clean but doesn't have to be fancy, that will allow us to appreciate Ubud by foot. Any suggestions?

      Thanks in advance.

      I am wondering if there is anywhere in Ubud, or anywhere else in Bali where these wood carvers take on apprentices. I am amazed at the beauty of the wood sculpture I see from Bali, and especially Ubud, and I am hoping that there is some way that I can train/study under a woodcarver, whether formally or informally, for at least a year. But any help with any specifics about any carving courses would be appreciated. But I am hoping to find a carver who will be kind enough to take me on as a pupil/apprentice.

      2 mths stay for health, healing, rejuvenation and to feed my artistic soul

      by Karenkii Online Now May 11, 2013 at 3:57 AM

      I was recently recommend UBUD as a destination to consider for time out to recover my health, and reignite my spirit, emotionally, physically and artistically. I am single, a photographer / graphic designer and seek a safe place to call home for 2 mths.
      On my wish list is the following:

      • A quaint place to stay, picturesque, lush, and quiet ( budget $50 per night)
      • Air con & a good swimming pool that I can exercise in.
      • Easily accessible to markets, cafes, town - as I cant walk distances due to an injured foot. Though I have heard its easy to get around by public transport
      • Would like to also engage in art workshops - and even cooking ones would be great too
      • Affordable daily massages
      • Sound baths or similar if they exist
      • Gentle exercise classes
      • Open to other forms of healing...

      Advise given to me was to find a nice place to stay and then go and visit a place called the Yoga Barn as from there I could find many opportunities for health / healing networking and so forth etc.

      Does anyone have any tips for art workshops of any kind? A central place like the Yoga Barn maybe and a website perhaps etc.

      Are their any forums one can use to network - maybe to find other people in Ubud where one can share interests - ie photography, or just hook up for coffee etc.

      I am planning to go Sept / October
      I am not a beach or bar person. More inclined to seek peaceful environs....

      Many thanks in anticipation.
      P.S. I am in my 40's so I would like some comforts but it doesn't have to be extravagant. Gone are the days of backpacking :)

    • Bali in 4-5 days

      by Aranetti Online Now Nov 6, 2011 at 10:42 AM

      Hi. My wife and I are planning to have our second honeymoon in Bali this December. Would it make a difference, temperature-wise and crowd-wise, if we went first or second week?

      We only have 4-5 nights,and wish to see the ff :

      wayang kulit
      legong, topeng and/or barong rangda dance
      mask-making, puppet-making, wood carving, batik-making ( and a small bit of shopping for these at good prices)
      temple festivals
      Pura Ulun Danu Batur (old & new)
      Monkey Forest temples (avoiding areas with too many wild macaques as much as possible)
      Goa Gajah / Bedulu / maybe Gianyar / Pura Dalem Sidan
      Pura Penataran Sasih
      Puri Agung Karangasem
      Pura Ulun Danu Bratan
      Tenganan and Candidasa if time permits
      Pura Meduwe Kawang if time permits
      Pura Beji if time permits
      Balinese cooking class if time permits

      We do NOT want to see snakes and pythons (much less be offered a photo with them or stroke them). We are NOT going to beaches as we have just gone to several really really good ones these past few months.

      We would like to go to a good spa at least once or twice. We love taking photos. Above all, we love to eat eat eat, especially food like babi guling.

      We are looking into Hotel Komaneka Tanggayuda in Ubud, although cheaper (but very clean and safe) hotel suggestions are welcome. Places to go to other than what is outlined above are very welcome too.

      Is the itinerary above doable in 4-5 days' time? Can anyone recommend a good driver with a decent vehicle for hire? Do we need to hire someone for airport assistance? We do NOT need a visa, but would appreciate it if someone can help us ensure a quicker line movement in the airport and a more secure way of handling our luggage.

      What is a good budget per day for food and the activities and places outlined above? There's just 2 of us.

      What should we avoid?

      Thank you all so much in advance.
