    seen many monkey places. They are cute yes until they attack you or steal things from you. Yes it's there home so you are the visitor. Don't take photo with it for instagram. Not worth it. Yes there are workers there that will distract you to get photo. Still dangerous. Remember if they bite it'll cost you $$$$$. Rabie shots in Indonesia i heard are like $2000 US. Not fun either. My daughter got bitten in Mexico and not fun. Luckily govt health plan paid in Canada. These are wild animal so you don't know how they will react even if trained. These are not trained !!! We had a monkey chase us and grabbed on to my daughters leg after bathing in Cemetary waters. We did not provoke it, it just came running at us and we tried to stay firm but it still came after us and clung on. No bites i think as we carefully inspected. Another strange incident was it grab the peril from our backpack and then started drinking it. Not good. tried to get it away from them but unsuccessful. Also saw some eating plastic bags - ingesting it too. Human endanger them.

    Just view and take some photos. It's 80,000 rupee entrance. Visa accepted. You will need about 1 -2 hrs. Lots of daytrippers from Nusa Dua and Kuta. Well paved paths. This is my second time here (previously 30yrs ago). Don't recall it being so perfectly paved before.

    Go enjoy but skip that instagram shot on your head. Not worth the risk.
    But people will still do i know.

    You've been warned.

    Yes, yes, yes such a nice walk! Do expect a slight strenuous climb up and down. But definitely worth it when you reach the small village on top. Go around the village to explore some hidden gems with authentic views over the area. We did it with a baby in a baby bag, don't bring your stroller.

    Temple was closed when we went. The area around the temple was open. You can take photos in front of the temple gate. Not too crowded

    We’ve done this walk so many times and loved it that I just had to leave a review so that others might have the same chance. The walk starts by walking up Jl Kajeng from the main Jl Raya Ubud (look for the hand written tiles and stones in the roadway) and continuing until the road turns into a wide pathway from where cars can no longer proceed. The path goes gently uphill until you literally pop out in the spectacular scenery of the rice fields. Once past Luxxe Hotel there are a couple of narrow culverts above the creek to negotiate, and then as you cross over a small foot bridge, turn left to start making your way in the opposite direction, weaving past the multitude of yoga joints, art studios, accommodation and small warungs, until eventually you end up bac in Jl Raya Ubud and a left turn to get you back to the start. All up, it’s about 4.6km of mostly flat easy walking, some gentle uphill, the narrow culverts (see pics) and about 10 high steps up after turning left from the footbridge back to the main path. Best early morning as some areas are exposed to direct sunlight, but we’ll worth the effort.

    Although this is a total tourist trap and we were warned about it by our driver, he still dropped us off here as it is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area and a great place for a swim after a long hot day.
    The waterfall was absolutely beautiful. If we had more time there or knew about it I'd have perhaps booked a night at the resort overlooking it or at least had lunch there.
    The water was a lovely temperature for a swim.
    You have to pay again if you want to walk up the side of the waterfall and continue along the top which we decided not to do.

    The sellers outside ruined this place for me. Hounding you the minute you pull up on the bike, telling you that you need to purchase a sarong to visit, which I saw a couple of people do begrudgingly. They give you them for free inside!
    The actual elephant cave and attraction was a fun little trip, with lots of pretty sites and lots of history.
    Enjoyed even in the rain.

    Chose the 3-in-1 Mt. Batur tour. Fantastic view of Mt. Batur and it's brother at sunrise at a cafe. Got some Indonesian cake for breakfast as well. Started hiking the black lava field afterwards, which gave us a feeling on being at another planet. After the hike, we biked around Mt. Batur through all the villages. Fantastic views and an all right bike tour. Stopped at the water temple for the last bit; to cross the lake in kayaks. Wonderful! Got to visit the water temple and also a coffee plantation with taste samples as well. Our guide was Gentur, he really made an awesome day for us. He could a lot about everything, and gladly shared the balanece culture with us.

    Ubud is famous for its paintings and the best are represented in this gallery. 2 or 3 hours to get around.

    The market is active again post C-19, August 2022. Although less busier and not so many stalls prior to the pandemic. Some nice things.

    Great place for free. No entrance fee or anything. Yes there will be a guide that explains process after you go thru the garden area (nice). No obligation to tip or buy anything. Yes you get to try 16 or so teas/coffee for free. No one has a guun to your head to spend more. For 50k yeah pricey but ok if you think killing 1-2 hrs for $4 is not too bad. Also free tobbaco to roll while you sample. Most teas are sweet as hell and prob artificially flavored but the sampling is fun ... You're a tourist so no biggy to do touristy things.

    Yes of course at end there is a gift shop. But your not obligated so just say no thanks and pay for your Luwark coffee if you ordered one. If not, you are free to go. Very close to the HOLY Spring Temple and free parking for your scooter.

    We did tip the guide a buck or 2 ....

    Enjoy
    this is supposely better than the more popular Pumia one near the rice fields. We tried going there but didn't find so we just came to this one on our way to the Temple.

    As part of our tour through Ubud, we found ourselves deep in the commercial end of town (by the Monkey Forest) which is where the Puri Saren Royal Palace lies. If you didn’t know this was where the royal family spent some of their time, you wouldn’t be the only one; the palace itself seems fairly innocuous when compared to the likes of the temples and traditional family houses you see casually around Bali.
    Whilst this may seem to make the royal family that bit more relatable to the average local, in all honesty it was just more of the same that we had come to expect from the temples of Ubud. That was not to say the palace wasn’t an aesthetic marvel, more that the style of Balinese architecture that we had seen throughout our travels in Ubud is itself incredible and this was, at the risk of repeating myself, just more of that.
    Not an essential stop by any means, but if you want more of that Balinese architectural goodness then you can easily fit it into your schedule.

    Worth the price - see the maestro's collection. No camera's are allowed one you enter the museum. Worth to visit for about an hour.

    this temple close to campuhan river,and only open to locals for praying,not for travellers to visit.but you can admire it from outside.when i walked through campuhan ridge to ubud center,i took some pics of it, though many years ago i already taken some pics,different feeling after pandemic,cuz almost two years cant visit Bali and ubud,those who love Bali will understand what i meant.if you have time,stop here,and admire its beauty.you can also go down to the river,but be careful,it might be slippery.
