Ubud is a veritable wonderland of tropical flora and fauna. Criss-crossed with vivid green rice terraces and dotted with everything from temples to tumbling waterfalls, this is the place for romantic explorations and dreamy days beneath the Balinese sun.
See the very best that this inland region has to offer on a 10-hour guided day tour. You’ll be picked up early in the morning from your hotel and whisked away for a day of discovering a dazzling array of sights. Begin at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, a uniquely soul-stirring place of sacred temples, exotic butterflies and – of course – monkeys. Tegalalang Rice Terrace is next up. Pause for Instagrammable photographs and meander the lush green fields before refueling at a quirky jungle restaurant with a lunch of delectable dishes.
Spend the afternoon perusing attractions such as Tirta Empul Temple – an ancient holy site that offers a rare chance to witness blessing rituals – and revered royal residence, Puri Saren Palace. Zip through the rainforest on a jungle swing and then take a swim at Tegenungan waterfall which provides a perfect backdrop for further photographs, while Satria Coffee Plantation offers the chance to see how Indonesia cultivates one of its most popular products.
Pick up unique souvenirs at Ubud Traditional Art Market and wood carving workshop Sila Galeri, before being returned to your hotel for a well-earned evening of relaxing.
