Besides clothes, colorful paintings are also available for sale at the complex.

To make you familiar with the process of designing the Batik products, below are some of steps that these products go through before becoming a final product –

Making designs on the white material:
a. Copying the original designs; b. Directly without copying before.

Covering designs with wax (klowong) on both sides.
b. Filling designs with ornaments and small dots.
c. Covering some special part of the designs to get the second color (sawuk)
d. Covering some special part of the designs to get the third color (tembokan)

Traditional colors like blue, brown and light yellow are used for a better appearance.

All most all travel agencies in Bali can arrange a short trip to this complex.

To my disappointment, I could not get pictures of batik products as photography is prohibited inside the complex.

My trip was sponsored by Om Tourism – one of India’s leading travel agencies.

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.

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.
