    Not as long as expected, or I just didn’t walk long enough due to the kids.

    But the panoramic is amazing. Fresh air + sunrise + sweat. Just perfect to be your morning routine.

    Take a walk at 6am local time, and you’ll get the walk on yourself. People will come as the sun rises.

    Temple was closed when we went. The area around the temple was open. You can take photos in front of the temple gate. Not too crowded

    It offers you a food and art market. If you’d like to find authenctic Ubud food, come earlier in the morning, it has a range of snacks, Balinese nasi campur, and ayam betutu, so tasty!

    The minus point was the place itself isn’t too clean.

    We visited the coffee plantation, where we were taken around by a guide. He showed us the different types of trees used to grow coffee, cacao and lots of other spices/fruits. We were able to see coffee roasting and were given fruit teas and flavoured coffees to try for free.

    They also sold luwak coffee for 50k, a special type of coffee made from the poo of a civet. They had a civet in a cage, ‘for display purposes only’, and wrote on a nearby board that these civets were released every week and a new one taken. Not sure how true this was.

    At the end of the tour, we were taken to a shop where we could buy teas, coffees, oils and more. The guides do not pressure you to buy, but since the tour is free, you feel obliged to get something.

    We usually take years to find paintings that we both like and suit what we are looking for. However here we were spoilt for choice. There was such a range of styles to choose from and so many galleries, that we found many that we both liked. So, rather than having difficulty choosing a painting, our decision was solely determined by the size of the painting. Thoroughly recommended.

    As part of our tour through Ubud, we found ourselves deep in the commercial end of town (by the Monkey Forest) which is where the Puri Saren Royal Palace lies. If you didn’t know this was where the royal family spent some of their time, you wouldn’t be the only one; the palace itself seems fairly innocuous when compared to the likes of the temples and traditional family houses you see casually around Bali.
    Whilst this may seem to make the royal family that bit more relatable to the average local, in all honesty it was just more of the same that we had come to expect from the temples of Ubud. That was not to say the palace wasn’t an aesthetic marvel, more that the style of Balinese architecture that we had seen throughout our travels in Ubud is itself incredible and this was, at the risk of repeating myself, just more of that.
    Not an essential stop by any means, but if you want more of that Balinese architectural goodness then you can easily fit it into your schedule.

    Turn to Ibah's Warwick resort, and you'll find a local school to park your car/bike. From there, follow the path to go to Campuhan, and you'll find the Temple at the side of your walk. it's mostly closed and opened only for praying. Still, you can take shots in front of the temple gate.

    Hopefully a rebuild. Once a bustling favourite among tourists, the Bintang Supermarket (Bintang means Star) burnt down in the early hours of the morning on Thursday 16th January 2020. There is talk that it will be rebuilt, but that will be some time away. I purchased some chocolate and a couple of music instruments, then later that night a very hot fire ripped through the place. Quite a number of people filmed the event.

    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

    Wanted to find some true local artwork and we did. The students and teachers here are so skilled and the work is so detailed. Unfortunately we went in the morning so didn't get to meet the students as they come at 2pm after normal school. But once Wayan found out we hadn't seen a traditional Balinese house before he was more than happy to explain all the different buildings and show us his pigs. The detail that some of these young students have for their work is mind blowing. The art here is much more expensive than at the tourist markets, around $60 for a small piece, but after you see the detail and how many days they spend on each piece it is definitely worth the extra. The money goes to the artists and a small 10% goes to the school for supplies. My kids loved that the paintings were done by someone there age. This place is a must and you get to help keep the traditions alive.

    We visit the place a couple of weeks ago and bought a lot of coffees and teas from their shop, all sugar free, according the labels. But back home, everything taste so sweet, like it's full of sugar, very disappointed, if that's th case...it's misleading and cheating

    Located just adjacent to our Ubud Palace Hotel. Has a nice collection of outfits though choices are a bit limited. Bought one for my daughter. Also got a discount by posting and tagging them on FB!

    interesting plantation - could see different plants- cinnamon, cocoa, coffee bean & then see how the coffee is made. A bit sad to see the luwaks caged up asleep. Great tasting selection of different teas and coffees. Nice photo opportunities with swings and heart shaped sculpture.
