So anyways, the main street of Ubud feels just like any main street in a main town in Bali- chaotic.
Of course you’ll want to wander around the Palace.
Walk a little away from the Palace, though, and things feel different- quieter, more like a state of mind than an assault on the ears. Venture up a side street and it’s different again.
It’s up these side streets that you find local designers and jewellers, galleries, homewares, jam makers, soap makers, organic food, spas…the list goes on.
Take a wander, peer up that alley, through that gate. When it all gets too hot and melty, there’ll be somewhere to sit and have a coconut, a health juice or a beer.
Of course, if you’re after transport or an armful of cruisey beach dresses, sarongs and Bintang t-shirts…or perhaps even the ubiquitous wooden penis bottle opener, head straight to the market in the centre of town.
When you get hungry, you’re spoilt for choice. I’ve already told you about that, though…over here…
We found the warung in the pic below after venturing through a narrow doorway on Monkey Forest road. It opened up into this working rice paddy.
Soup and pies in Ubud? Yes, really.
Although not sure what to make of this one…
And this one is eggplant, Ubud style…
Not sure what to do next? Just follow the signs…
I’m going to be visiting Bali this summer and after reading this post, I’m even more excited! Your photographs are amazing ☺️
Thanks- have a great time…there is so much to see and explore and experience.
