A Budget Traveller's Guide to Ubud, Bali

A Budget Traveller's Guide to Ubud, Bali, Ubud, Indonesia (B)

We absolutely loved Ubud, so much so that after staying a month and leaving the country we flew back to stay another month! If you plan to travel here (which we recommend you do) then our list of things you must experience in Ubud is for you + a few extra tips to ensure you have a good time…

Ubud is a small city in the central mountainous area of Bali. It’s known to be the cultural heart of Bali in comparison to many areas purely built for tourism (ahem, Kuta!) However Ubud city can sometimes be confused with the area of Ubud known for it’s waterfalls, temples, secluded hotels (the ones with infinity pools that you see all over Instagram), etc. When planning to visit Ubud you’ll more than likely need transport to get around to these places unless you choose to only stay in the city centre. That’s why I’ve divided this post into things to do in the city and must-see places nearby, so I hope it helps with planning your Ubud itinerary!

First of all the Sacred Monkey Forest is probably the number one attraction in Ubud city. It’s a nature reserve within a Hindu temple complex where you’ll find hundreds of monkeys. Do be careful though as this is not a zoo, so the monkeys are wild and are notorious for stealing your things, especially if they smell food. They are not shy and even know how to unzip bags! The entry only costs IDR40k ($4AUD) which you pay on arrival and the Sacred Monkey Forest is open between 8:30am-6pm.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
