The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, is known as Bali’s cultural heartland. Located near the cooler mountains further north, about an hour drive from the airport and the resorts of southern Bali, Ubud is also home to a plethora of fantastic restaurants, offering endless options from traditional local foods to fresh organic cafes. Couples can enjoy absorbing the spiritual and cultural atmosphere as well as strolling hand in hand around the streets lined with shops and local artisans offering traditional arts and crafts. The town is also home to one of Bali’s royal families and is also a flourishing crafts centre, leaving you feeling utterly inspired at every corner (brides will love finding ideas for their home!). Ubud zoomed to fame after the movie, Eat, Pray, Love and can become quite busy with frequent visits from tourists wanting to see the sets. Traffic can get heavy in the centre but if you take your time and stroll around on foot, you can avoid the not so pleasant experience of being stuck in traffic. Even if you do find yourself travelling at a snail's pace along the streets, you can snuggle together and enjoy window shopping from the comfort of your transport! Moving out of the centre of Ubud, it’s surrounding district offers some of Bali’s most iconic landscapes, lush rainforest and terraced rice fields, dotted with Hindu Temples and shrines. Ancient holy sites include the Tirta Empul temple complex, intricately carved Gaja (Elephant Cave) and Gunung Kawi with its rock cut shrines. Around Ubud the surrounding villages like Campuhan, Penestanan, Peliatan and Batuan specialize in crafts and woodcarving, which are sold all over the island. There are many shops selling antiques, woodcarvings, crafts, textiles and jewelry as well as fantastic paintings.
