Ubud cultural center
Ubud is the cultural center of Bali. Ubud may be explored on a magnificent path by bike or motorbike, which can be rented in a variety of locations. There are different markets to shop like the Ubud Art Market, Patha Handicraft and Ikat Batik. Many of the items available for purchase are handcrafted. Or go to the Neka Art Museum or Museum Puri Likisan and look at Balinese modern and traditional art. Puri Saren or Puri Saraswati provide a dance performance almost every evening if you wish to see a Balinese dance. Ubud also has nice temples like the Saraswati Temple, Ubud Water Palace and Pura Dalem Ubud. Gunung Kawi and Tirza Empul Temple are a little bit further but also worth visiting.

Bali is full of beautiful rice fields. You can go to Tegallalang Rice Terrace, which is one of the most popular and amazing locations to explore. It is about a 20 minutes drive from Ubud. Or visit the Bali Swing and experience an amazing view from a different perspective. For more like a forest or jungle walk, a must-do is the Campuhan Ridge Walk. This is a gorgeous walk through green nature and is a nice place to enjoy the beauty of Ubud, Bali. We recommend going early to all of them since the temperatures are cooler, the light is better, and it is less crowded.
Ubud Monkey Forest is home to more than 300 monkeys. When you visit you will be impressed by the funny, cute and sometimes scary behavior of the apes. Nothing terrible will happen if you follow the rules, such as not staring them in the eyes. It is also possible to feed the monkeys with the assistance of a staff who will ensure your safety. Next to that, the forest itself is idyllic to walk through with lovely nature. The combination of this and being surrounded by monkeys is truly a unique experience. The Monkey Forest is about a 15 minutes drive from Basundari.
Bali is blessed with countless stunning waterfalls. For example the Tegenungan Waterfall, Tibumana Waterfall and Kanto Lampo Waterfall are definitely worth visiting. They are close to magical and are perfect for cooling down on a hot day. Some waterfalls charge a modest admission fee, and depending on which one you visit, it might take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to get there from Basundari.
