In the heart of Bali’s cultural hub – Ubud – you’re blessed with inspiring temples, breathtaking waterfalls, lush jungle and much more.
If we’re honest, Ubud did get a little sleepy over the pandemic but it’s safe to say that the markets, museums and nightlife are wide awake now – Ubud is back!
If you’re doing an island tour of your second Bali homes, we recommend spending at least three or four days at Karma Mayura (which is newly reopened) to get your fill of Ubud’s serenity and philosophy. Here’s a few Ubudian classics and new favourites that we suggest doing in the second half of 2022…
Road trip to Bedugul
A refreshing escape in the lakeside air, Bedugul feels like an entirely different world from South Bali; with Beratan Lake right in the centre. The area is famed for its strawberry farms, where you can explore the grounds and pick your own.
Water rafting & ATV
Time to swap your sunhat for the courageous hat, as you head down into the rivers of Ubud. Plenty of businesses around this area offer white water rafting experiences and quad bike adventures for all ages and abilities.
Around 50 minutes north of Ubud you’ll discover the mountainous Kintamani region. Popular amongst travellers for its tranquil hot springs and stunning mountain ranges.
Unlike the vast majority of Bali’s rice terraces, Alas Harum has an additional touch of magic with its agrotourism and photo spots. As you walk around the tranquil setting, you’ll come across a gorilla carved into the rocks, a dancing bridge and a sky bike – just to name a few.
Museums and galleries
Along with the usual crowd favourites, such as the Art Market and Arma, many local artists and cafes have joined forces to showcase pop-up exhibitions around Ubud; like at Titik Dua, where you’ll definitely find up and coming talent.
