Things to Do in Ubud

Ubud is known worldwide as a centre for Balinese culture, arts and crafts, and harbours a number of palaces, ancient temples, museums and art galleries. Antonio Blanco, Auke Sonnega, Rudolf Bonnet, Walter Spies, C.L. Dake, Donald Friend, Louise G. Koke, Frida Holleman, Flip Hamers, Han Snel, and Maria and Willem Gerard Hofker are just some of the artisans and collectors who have visited, lived and worked in Bali, creating or compiling eclectic masterpieces that you can observe in local museums and art galleries.

Those museums and galleries are situated on Jalan Raya Ubud (Ubud’s main road), Jalan Hanoman (which runs parallel to Jalan Monkey Forest and runs east-west through the centre of town), Jalan Pengosekan (positioned three kilometres from central Ubud), and Campuhan (a small village on the west and northwest of Ubud’s main road). The other viewing pleasures you can enjoy in Ubud are the lush and verdant rice paddies, prehistoric temples and palaces spread throughout 14 neighbouring villages.

Batuan Village

Lots of Balinese say that if you want to see what Bali looked like in the old days, visit Batuan Village. The village comprises traditional Balinese compounds and natural surroundings, and you’ll be fascinated by the residents who enthusiastically embrace the traditions and rituals observed in every facet of their life: most of them work as traditional craftsmen or artists. The name ‘Batuan’ or ‘Baturan’ can be translated as ‘tough as stone’ or ‘eating rocks’, but actually it refers to an ancient megalithic tradition in which standing stones (many of which have been found in this village) served as meeting places and ceremonial sites for the worship of ancestral spirits. So, be sure to put it on your holiday outing agenda.
