While Bali is famous for glitz, glamor and edgy nightlife, Ubud draws tourists from all over the world because of its serene greenery, plenty of yoga institutions and temples.
Compact in size, Ubud is a perfect place to spend some quality, peaceful and relaxed time. I spent just a few hours there, but it was enough for this small town to impress me.
Considered by many as the cultural hub of Bali, Ubud’s lush paddy fields impressed me the most. Ubud has become very popular among the tourists in the recent past. People from all genre come to this place in quest of tranquility, which this town provides happily. It has become a laid back cosmopolitan community over the past few years.
One can spot a lot of chic boutiques, restaurants and cafes while strolling around the town. If you are fond of yoga and meditation, then this place is worth visiting.
How to reach Ubud: Ubud is 14km drive from Bali. Once you arrive at Denpser airport, you can find lots of taxis. Make sure to bargain before stepping into the taxi. If you are a budget traveller, you can reach Ubud by shuttle bus, which you can find outside the airport. Alternatively, your hotel can arrange a taxi for you.
