Sightseeing in Ubud

In the middle of the Indonesian island of Bali lies the charming town of Ubud. For those who want to explore the cultural heart of Bali, a visit to this town is highly recommended. The town itself is quite touristy with the center consisting mainly of hotels and restaurants.

Ubud has many temples with the largest one being the amazing water palace or also referred to as the Lotus temple. The front has a large pond with lilies and a small long walkway which leads to the temple. Behind its impressive front facade there are smaller shrines and other statues. As Ubud is the cultural and religious heart of Bali, there are many small temples and most of them are open for tourist. Usually they consist of a walled courtyard in which there is a shrine and several Hindu statues which can wear traditional clothing.

The other attraction of Ubud is its location in the middle of the rice paddies. If you want to go see them, all you have to do is walk out of town and you will be right in the middle of the rice paddies. Several sighs have been posted in Ubud to point you into the right direction. There are many little paths which are not accessible by motorized traffic and used by local farmers only which gives you with the feeling of walking around in a scene from an Asian movie. Some of the other attraction in Ubud include the Monkey forest, the botanic garden, the Bali bird park. There are several places where you can rent a scooter and drive around and see many of the surrounding rice fields.

Ubud is also famous for its traditional dancing and in the evening there are many shows on. Ubud is small enough to walk everywhere. In the center of of the town you can rent a little bungalow for yourself instead of staying in a hotel. For your shopping, Ubud has a small local market which sells everything you need. Bali has a dry season and a rainy season with June up to September the driest months. When you want to spent time outdoors it worth checking the weather ahead of departure.
