Things to Do in Ubud – Cultural Centre of Bali

Ubud the cultural centre of holistic Bali better known as the Land of Gods is rich in culture and scenery. The place offers tourists loads of venues for relaxing and rejuvenating mind body and soul.


Locavore – For Foodie's

This place is popular as the foodie haven of Ubud. The place is so revered it is considered a sort of temple for local dishes. Mind you the experience is quite rewarding if you make an early booking. Early bookings are necessary to get a table at this highly distinguished eatery that boasts 9 course meals. You may find yourself enjoying the meals for over3 hours as celebrity chefs Ray Adriansyah and Elke Plasmeijer mesmerize you at the showcase kitchen. Look forward to the show and do indulge in the wine pairing offer. This place is located at JI Dewi Sita and is open from noon to 2 pm and 6 to 10 pm.


The Neka Art Museum

The Neka Art Museum is a treat to explore; like the COMO Uma Ubud it is centrally placed in JI Raya Sanggingan. The place houses a fascinating and diverse collection of art that offers an insight to painting and its history in Bali. From vintage paintings to contemporary master pieces by talented local artists and international artisans, the museums displays promise to impress all art lovers.


The Museum Puri Lukisan

Keeping true to its artistic cultural roots, Ubud proudly houses the Museum Puri Lukisan. This museum is a fine example of the art movement in Bali; chronicling the diversion from purely religion themed works of art to creations capturing everyday rituals of life. The museum has displays that offer an insight to the Balinese schools of art and offer excellent narrations in English. The place is located off JI Raya Ubud and open from 9 am to 5pm.


Visit the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

This verdant jungle hides within its folds three sacred temples. The place is also home to over 600 Balinese Macaques that sport long grey hair and a greedy disposition. Watch out for these rather bold creatures that are considered sacred and are tolerated. The Pura Dalem Agung is found within the forest and well worth exploring. If you are looking for accommodation – rooms and villas close to this forest are ideal; if you love early morning treks into the wilds of nature feeling like Indiana Jones.


Moksa – Farm to Table Restaurant

At Moksa you will experience a farm to fork or table concept that seems to be wildly popular in Ubud. The concept here is simplicity and indeed most meals will arrive half cooked or raw. It all vegetables of course with an ever changing menu offering you loads of variety. There is one constant though; that is the favourite 'Lasagne Love' this dish is made with cheese, pesto and nuts. Love the rustic ambiance and farm that seems to surround the entire restaurant. Getting there is via a 400 metre walk beautiful paddy fields.
