ubud travel guide 1

Out of all the three places we’ve visited on our Bali trip, Ubud is my favorite. Well, it’s easy to say that because we only stayed in Uluwatu for a day. I think there’s still more to explore around Uluwatu, but one full day is all that we have, so yeah.

Ubud was laidback and chill even though there’s a plethora of shops and restaurants here and there. It’s still peaceful and relaxing despite throngs of tourists. I wish we had stayed longer tho because we missed so much in our planned itinerary. We promised to go back in the future and me personally as I wanted to try other creative classes there.

SLEEP & STAY

ubud travel guide 2Our room has an old-school door where we lock it using a padlock. kewl 

Sagittarius Inn

It’s like you are in a compound with numerous houses. The Inn was quiet and there are a few tourists that are staying there as well. The room was big enough for 3 people. Lai and I shared the bed and Miggy got the other one which was beside the large window.

The room comes with a:

SEE & DO

ubud travel guide 3Balinese Cooking Class! 

Tegallalang Rice terraces – Either you go here super early morning or before sunset (tho expect there’ll be LOTS of tourists). Prepare to hike down. Make sure to bring some quality footwear or spare (just in case).

Fee: Free

Umapakel Agro Tourism  Want to try THE SWING and have free coffee and tea tasting? This is the place to be. You can find many swing spots around Ubud as far as I remembered while I was researching for the itinerary.

Fee: 200,000 IDR

Creative Class – One of the things I am excited about our Bali trip is taking at least 1 creative class (Batik, Balinese cooking, ceramic class to name a few). Fee: 350,000-375,000 for Balinese cooking

Shopping at Ubud Market – Best to go super early in the morning to shop and to avoid other tourists. We went here around before noon and there were a lot of people already. 

Temple Hopping:

Saraswati Temple – Go to the side part of the compound to take photos for your Insta needs

Ubud Palace – It’s a holiday when we arrived in Ubud and there are so many people inside so we scratched this off the itinerary. 

There’s a Starbucks beside the Saraswati Temple that you could hang out with OR try the local coffee shops scattered around Ubud 🙂

Other Things to do:

Yoga at Yoga Barn

Movie Night at Paradiso

Ubud traditional Spa

Campuhan Ridge Walk

EAT & SIP

ubud travel guide 4Baby Back Ribs and some Mi Goreng 

Atman Cafe – Serves Organic and healthy meals

No Mas – Perfect place to have a beer or cocktails with your girls before calling it a night. Try the Bintang Beer.

IIGA Warung – best baby back ribs and serving is good enough for two. Quite pricey but meals can be shared so win-win!

Warung D’ Ubud – Try their Chicken satay meal! 

Other recommendations :

Cafe Wayan

Watercress Cafe

Three Monkeys
