Bali 2 – Ubud
I’ve been meaning to put this one on for a while, but haven’t had time. I am going to keep this one short and let the photos give you a picture of the type of place Ubud is. As I said before, I would go back there in a second and could quite happily live there for a month or two. That’s how much I fell in love with the place.
The food was great, the people were nice and the atmosphere was relaxing. The Monkey Forest, next door to our hotel, had probably the highest concentration of monkeys I have ever seen, for those of you who are monkey-inclined. We spent most of our time eating out, sightseeing and wandering around the aforementioned forest. We also bought a fair few wood carvings, which seemed to be the speciality of the area we were in, for extremely low prices.
The best tour we took was a downhill bike tour where you are shown various little tidbits of culture, including the traditional family home where the amount of people living there is written on the sign outside (any births or deaths have to be promptly recorded).
