    The scenery is spectacular. Strolling through the lush verdant rice fields is restorative to the soul. Can be very hot in middle of day. Best early morning and late afternoon. Carry water though plenty of refreshment stops en route

    We were lucky to be staying in the hotel beside the temple and ate all our breakfasts here looking out at the beautiful lotus and lilly ponds.Free to enter and look from the restaurant but 100000rph to pay if you want to inspect the temple in traditional dress.We had free access and went and had a look.If you are on a budget,dont worry about paying the entrance fee and just have a drink or some food at the restaurant.At night they have a Barong Dance which will cost you 100000rph to go and watch.Worth the money for the cultural experience.Beautifully maintained and keep your eyes open for a water monitor in the ponds.A must to visit whilst in Ubud

    This is a rural area north of Jl. Raya Ubud that is within close proximity to the city centre and a convenient opportunity to walk through working rice fields as part of visits to Ubud. In addition to seeing rice paddies and an impressive water irrigation system, there are numerous villas and some neat little coffee shops and cafes built up along the walkways.

    We very much enjoyed a morning walking through the Kajeng Rice Fields recently, including a great stop at the cute little place called Brick Wurang where we were served sweet Banana juice drinks and an order of lumpia while enjoying views of the rice fields. Allow at least 1.5 hours to walk the fields and have a cafe stop before returning to the city centre.

    This is the residence of the Royal Family of Ubud, located at the junction of Jl. Raya Ubud and Jl. Monkey Forest. This palace building has been used by the Royal family for Ubud for centuries. it was first constructed in 1640, then renovated and expanded in the early 19th-century.

    You can enter the palace grounds freely during the day to see the classic Balinese Hindu temple architecture which is delicate and rather photogenic. It is worth 10-15 minutes for a quick look-see when sightseeing in the area.

    During the evenings, the palace then transforms into a venue for traditional Balinese dance performances. These are held nightly and you can book tickets throughout Ubud at different travel businesses and hotels.

    A Cautionary Tale: our guide took us there. The tour and tasting were terrific. We bought a ton of their products at the showroom. A few weeks later we opened a box of the Avocado coffee and were shocked to see how little coffee there was. We went on Trip Advisor and read a number of reviews re being scammed there. We determined to go back and demand a full refund, which we did. After confronting the top person at the store she said that the avocado product was 80% avocado, 10% sugar, and 10% coffee (which should be labeled) but insisted the other products had much higher percentage of coffee. To prove it they opened a package off the shelf of Ginger Coffee and sure enough it was good coffee. Only the Avocado coffee and teas were deficient in coffee. Lesson learned. We went in all righteous and fired up. I should have noted that the vast majority of TA reviews were highly positive and not prejudged so strongly. We didn’t open other boxes of product to test because we planned on returning everything. If we had we’d have discovered that the other products were fine. Yes, the boxes should be better labeled. Yes, they apparently charge more then many other coffee “plantations.” But scam? Most definitely not. Check your facts thoroughly before writing negative, accusative reviews! We learned a good, humbling lesson.

    The Peliatan Royal Palace is an ancient Palace in the Ubud region of Indonesia that was built around the 17th century. A section of the palace is open for public viewing. Our small group tour had booked a tour of the palace grounds area (exterior only), dinner in the evening and a barong dance performance after dinner.

    The Palace, although ancient, appears well maintained and the grounds area are also well maintained. The dinner that was served is the traditional Indonesian fare and was both good and tasty. After dinner, a very nice Barong dance performance with typical Indonesian music was given. Both the dancers and musicians gave a very good performance. The Palace was well worth the visit.

    This is a rice field just north of the Kajeng Rice Field in Ubud. It is a nice area to walk through traditional Balinese village and see working rice fields and impressive irrigation system that providing the water needed to keep the fields vibrant and productive. There are villas and occasional cafes setup which you can grab a seat, have a coffee, fruit juice or coconut while enjoying time spent in the beautiful rural setting.

    This is a perfect walking escape from Ubud Central and a much needed reminder that not all of Ubud has been taken over by tourism….just yet. Take a chance and wonder off the broken paved trail, down earth tracks following the sound of the water below …take a moment and listen to the ripples, watch the light beams through the palm trees, and stay with an electric blue dragon/damson fly, as it rests on a leave. Chat with the vanilla farmer, keen to explain his process. Some of the off trail paths take you to very small communities, where the people seem genuinely surprised and pleased to see a new face. Highly recommended.

    Since I stay with Balinese friends in Bedulu (=Bedahulu village), the Pura Samuan Tiga is more or less "THE TEMPLE" where the family goes for celebrations. This year was a big 12 days celebration from April 17th to 29th with all kind of activities. People from many communities around the Ubud area bring their holy temple symbols (the Rangda costumes and masques, the Barong, the temple shrines and others) to the temple to be blessed. They bring incredibly huge offerings (towers of fruits, rice cakes and decorated with ornaments made from young palm leaves and flowers) which get blessed with holy water by the Hindu priests. The intent sticks and some money on top are for the temple, the beauty of the colors and smells are for the gods, the edible parts are take home again for the family. There are Gamelan orchestras playing, people moving and singing and priests reading from the holy scriptures. Our friend took us for two evenings to the temple (dressed in the usual temple dress: Sarong, Blouse and Selendang for the ladies, Sarong, Shirt, Selendang and Headdress for the males and sandals or flip-flops on the bare feet). On the first afternoon we saw the processions of the different Banjars (communities) arrive with their temple things and circle three times the area of Samuan Tiga. Then there was the run of the ladies (long black skirts, white blouse, red selendang) and men (all in white) around the temple. They hold hands and run in waves symbolizing the waves of the sea. After three rounds the men take from the heaps of discarded decoration and put the dry palm leaves like hats on their heads. After one more round they sit in front of the priests to get blessed and then hit each other with the dry palm leaves. This symbolically drives out all bad thoughts. Now the temple and the people are cleansed and ready for the arrival of the goods. (Physically - in our eyes - the temple is more dirty than ever, rubbish laying around everywhere.) In the evening the school children and some ladies show special dances in beautiful costumes accompanied by Gamelan music. Again, the beauty of the dancers, the dances and the music is mainly for the gods, not necessarily for the onlookers, who talk, eat, come and go and let their children play. It is definitely not a show in our sense. Everybody who wants to look stands or sits crosslegged somewhere on the floor.
    If there is no ceremony, the temple is just a big area of stairs, temple shrines, and the huge holy banyan trees. Certainly worth seeing as well, but nothing in comparison to celebration times and preferably guided by somebody who knows about the meanings, like for example our friend, guide and driver I Nyoman Darna from Bedulu.

    This is one of the Hindu temples along Jalan Raya Ubud that is used for Balinese dance performances during evenings and can also be visited during they for those interested to explore the grounds of local temples. Opening hours are 9am to 5pm daily. Entry (20K IDR) and includes use of a sarong which the attendant will secure to you prior to being allowed to enter the temple grounds.

    You will see delicately carved entry gate and inner temple structures. There are statues of interesting if not sinister looking appearance of Rangda, the Demon Queen. The interior shrines feature delicate carvings. Overall, this is an attractive and photogenic temple worth 10-15 minutes to explore while sightseeing around Ubud.

    our guide was wonderful spending time explaining the whole process and answering any questions, coffee and tea samples were interesting, the coffee is really good and you can taste the difference, but be prepared to pay if you make it your daily drink

    This temple was closed but so many people seemed to be going in. We were told that they were rehearsing for a dance performance for later on that week and that it was the first time I. 2 years this was happening. We were told that we could go in and watch rehearsal as ?omg as we wore sarongs. We went in and looked around but didn't stay for rehearsal as I felt funny being the only female among a coup!e hundred men lol. But it was still very kind of them to invite us to watch.

    On Kunningan day (10th day after Galungan) is a big ceremony in Taman Pule Temple in Mas village. For those of you who wish to experience real Bali culture this is a must for you. After the initial first day (you can see traditional Wayang Wong dance in Temple forecourt) there are procesions of tall offerings each afternoon for three days from different Banyars (Village co-ops so to speak) meeting pavilions. The Temple is alive with many ceremonies and outside there is an array of tents and sellers of cloth, food toys and many other goods ...very busy place...enjoy
