Top things to do in Ubud with kids – Allow your kids the same measure of fun

Ubud is Bali's cultural heart, and it is brimming with attractions. From gorgeous sights to activities, the town offers something for every traveller. As a parent with kids, you've come to the right place.


Bird watching at Bali Bird Walk

Opened in 1990, Bali Bird Walk is the idea of ornithologist Victor Mason. The park focuses on conservation by educating people. Some of the earning of the park are directed to conservation projects. There are paved walkways, and 100 different types of birds take shelter at the park. A tour doesn't stretch to more than 20 people, so, you might want to book a tour well ahead of time. Also, you can only visit the park on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The starting point of tours is Murni's Warung, and the tours start at 9 am and go on until 12.30 pm. Visitors are offered lunch and drinking water.


Explore the mountains

Glance over the stunning views of the Balinese mountains by taking an off-road bicycle tour. The tour comes with a guide, and you will be cycling through hilly terrains of Ubud. The quaint countryside packed with paddy fields and fruit groves is inviting to nature lovers. You can also cycle through villages where you'll have encounters with the locals. Your kids are going to love this diversion and fall in love with the beautiful scenery.


Pondok Pekak Library

Take your kids to Pondok Pekak Library and inculcate the love of reading in them. The library offers a wide range of books written in English and Bahasa Indonesia.

Monkey Forest

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Ubud, Monkey Forest is a must-visit on your tour in Ubud. However, you need to exercise a little caution when visiting; the monkeys here are known to grab visitors' belongings and run; they are also known to bite. So, take extreme care as you are visiting with your kids.


Meander around the Ubud Water Palace

Located right behind Starbucks is the Ubud Water Palace. With amazing stone carvings and the pond garnished with lilies and fish, the Water Place is an absolute marvel. Right beside is Ubud Art Market, so while visiting the Water Palace, you can enjoy dance performances into the bargain.


Ubud Indoor Playgrounds

If you want to have some time for yourself, you can drop your kids at an indoor playground. These playgrounds are safe for your kids, and your kids get to interact with other kids. There's a range of playgrounds you can choose from. Although these places are safe, make sure you don't leave your kids on their own for too long.
