4 Things to Do in Ubud - For a memorable vacation!

Ubud is the centre of Balinese culture and one must pay a visit for the most delightful experience. Here is a list of the must do things in Ubud.


Canyon Beji Guwang

The Canyon Beji Guwang is a well-kept secret among the locals, and it will take you about an hour to reach the canyon from the Ngurah Rai. There are plenty of activities offered for visitors who make the trip. You can go rock climbing, swim against or along the currents, and be a witness to breath-taking scenic views of the lush green nature surrounding the place. The place requires that you hire a guide to take you around. These canyons are quite extensive and require an expert to navigate around the place in a safe manner. Not a lot of people are familiar with this place. Make sure to get your gear and swimwear when visiting. Extra clothes are also a must. This adventure is for the ones seeking moderate levels and people who cannot swim will be at risk as life vests are not given here. You can visit the place from 8 a.m. onwards and closes at 5:30 p.m.


Traditional Art Market

Market style shopping is very popular in these parts of the world. For those who love to shop, the Ubud traditional art market is just the place to be. You can choose from an incredible collection of batiks and sarongs. There are bags too, that have been made by straws. These come in different colours, sizes and shapes. On top of that, you can bargain until you find the right price. The market is open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 to p.m. Besides, if you are looking for the best restaurants in Ubud, there are plenty to choose from. You can start looking at properties like Alila Ubud for a good dining experience.


White Water Rafting

White water rafting is another adventurous thing you can do when in Ubud. Head to the Ayung River and be prepared to get wet. These are again for the moderate levelled adventure seekers and it is safe for the ones who do not know to swim as life vests are provided as part of the package. The guide will also tease asking you to be careful about the crocodiles around. The incredible waterfalls and rock carvings are all sights that will amaze you. These carvings are said to be of Ramayana origin. On top of this, after rafting, for about two hours, you will be provided with a good buffet meal. This is all that you will be craving after such vigorous exercise. The place is open from 8 a.m. every day and closes at about 2 p.m.


Tukad Cepung Waterfall

The Tukad Cepung Waterfall might be a little further than the places mentioned above. Having said that, the journey is completely worth it as the spectacular views are bound to make you speechless. Make sure to wear boots or slippers as the path that takes you to the waterfall are filled with pebbles. The waterfall should be explored in the afternoon, where the sun is at its brightest. Coming here after 4:30 p.m. would be ill-advised, as it is dark, and you won't be able to explore the cave. However, the place is open in the morning at 6 a.m. and close by 6 p.m.
