A Day Trip: Things To See and Do In Ubud

Ubud is a nice change of pace and scenery to the main strip of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak in Bali. Its refreshing greenery makes days more cool and relaxing when the weather gets hot and humid. For first timers, it’s suggested to visit the Monkey Forest in Ubud. We visited on our first trip to Bali and made a day out of it by also going to the Rice Fields and Ubud Markets.

Coopérative de Création

A little controversial, a lot of influence from art, Coopérative de Création is my favourite stop for jewellery in Seminyak. Although I didn’t have much luck the first time I visited Bali (all the items I wanted were sold out and when I finally made up my mind about that ‘today is a good day’ canvas tote it was gone!)
