    Great thing to do with kids. We loved observing the monkeys in their habitat. It gets pretty busy though and it’s very touristy, but we were expecting this. It’s a very quick tour, only need 1,5h perhaps 2h if you take your time.

    As usual this was a poorly signposted trail so a little tricky to find the beginning. Once you start it is really a nice surprise how soon the city sounds fade away and you’re fully immersed in nature. We started at 7am and there were already quite a few people who had completed their walks by the time we started. On the one hand it’s much quieter than the rice fields walk which is great and is much more relaxing. On the other, the scenery doesn’t really compare to the rice fields either. After the gate which marks the end of the walk itself, there are some nice cafes, warungs and little art workshops. All in all a good way to start the day in Ubud

    The garden area, pond and surroundings were open to the public, but the inner sanctum was closed in preparation for cremation rites on 24th July. Very attractive water feature with fountains and the gardens surrounding. Glad that we got to see some of the grand Balinese temple architectural artistry.

    A nice waterfall. To access this you have to traverse down many steep steps - the return route on a hot day may require a few breaks depending on fitness levels. There were a few people enjoying the pool, in the rainy season the water isn't that clear and appears a bit muddy. I'm sure the pool would have been enjoyable although we didn't bathe on this occasion. There are many places to take some nice photos and selfies along the way and a pretty nice looking pool-side bar, halfway down in case you need refreshments before or after the waterfall. All in all a pretty spot which can get quite busy - try to visit here in the morning if possible

    A pretty interesting cave close to Ubud which doesn't require too much time to cover. The temple has figures carved directly into the stone. The inside of the temple is small and there is a stone statue of Ganesh. I don't think this is one of the attractions that draws large crowds which means you can spend less than an hour here and still cover it properly

    Good service and had a nice morning with them. Unfortunately no sunrise view from Mount Batu but that's not their fault! Getting up at 1am was maybe a little too early - it could have been 1 hour later. Staff were great and the drive was safe. I recommend this tour company.

    It would be wonderful to have some signs or a pamphlet up explaining us about the various portions of the building. The area that is open to the public is fairly limited, and because so many people are there trying to shoot the ideal selfie, you can't get very close to anything interesting.

    Take an hour or more to explore this coffee plantation while in Ubud. Entrance is free, you will get a short tour of how the coffee is prepared, including the history of the luwak coffee. You will also see the luwak cat. Some cages are pretty small for these animals. Soak up the jungle view while sampling all the different coffees on offer.

    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.

    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

    Knowledgeable and fun, and very informative. Nice clean facility and family owned by Balinese. Delicious food, morning cooking class was great because we got to see the market before it closed. Very reasonable price.

    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

    My family and I had the delightful delicious pleasure of the Jeding Bali Cooking class today. It was a wonderful cooking class, and so much more! Chef I Nyoman was a fun, friendly, talented host. He took us on an interesting and informative market tour; to a rice paddy, where he explained the growing cycle of the main staple of Balinese food; and then to his beautiful family compound where we learned about the traditions of Balinese living, made beautiful offerings, and met his kind family. Then we set off on such a fun, yummy, flavor-filled cooking adventure. We participated in every step of the nine-course meal making, including ~ best of all! ~ eating!!
    I 10000% recommend Jeding Bali Cooking Class. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Bali.
