Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, is about a 40-minute drive from the airport in Denpasar, surrounded by vibrant green ride fields. It’s home to the Sacred Monkey Forest, a nature reserve where you can walk among countless Balinese long-tailed monkeys. After checking into your accommodation, get settled in and then perhaps enjoy a stroll along Ubud’s Main Street with its cafes and colourful shops.

We advise taking the time to rest and relax for the busy days ahead, perhaps enjoying the pool followed by dinner at your accommodation.

You’ll venture to the tranquil Tirtagangga water palace, and then stroll through the traditional village of Tengana, home to the indigenous Bali Aga people, known for their double-ikat cloth weaving. Next, journey to Klungkung’s Goa Lawah temple, often called the “Bat Cave,” with its thousands of bats.

Enjoy the panoramic views on your way toward Mount Batukaru and then see the endless rice fields of Jatiluwih. You’ll have time to soak up the breathtaking vista while learning about the Balinese farmers’ traditional methods of crop irrigation.

Day 7 Seminyak: Day of leisure

A day of leisure to enjoy as you’d like, we suggest unwinding and relaxing at your beach-side resort.

If you want to enjoy a stroll, the stretch of sand along the coast leads to Seminyak, Double Six, Legian and as far as Kuta, about 3.2 miles south.
