A centuries-old center for spirituality, creativity and healing arts, Ubud offers visitors a truly magical experience that is rich in culture.
Ubud has long been considered a magical place, and for centuries it drew artists, royalties and bohemians to its doorstep. While it is now a "must visit" location in Bali, its magic remains, such as the discovery of hidden temples (Goa Gajah and Agung Gunung Raung), majestic view of Ayung river, terraced rice field and Lake Batur, nature environment in Monkey forest, Balinese handmade artworks on street or the mythological stories told through traditional Barong dance.
Traditional Balinese food is rice as the central dish served with small portions of spicy, pungent vegetables, fish or meat and served almost always with sambal or chili paste. In Bali, Satay, Bakso, Nasi Goreng, Gado-gado and Babi Guling are "must try" food items too.
