07 Amazing Things to Do in Ubud - An experience of a lifetime!

Ubud is a place of relaxation. You don't have to pack your trip with one activity after another for a successful trip. When in Ubud, just walking in the rice fields, getting a message or attending a yoga class, are all part of the amazing Ubud experience. Here's a list highlighting some of the activities you can try when in Ubud.


Campuhan Ridge Walk

This is one of the most favourite walks to do here and is one place where there is no traffic and crowds. The Campuhan Ridge boasts of a number of hills surrounded by rice fields, offering spectacular views. This is a perfect place to head to in order to relax. Besides, for accommodation, you can check out a boutique hotel in Ubud, the likes of Alila Ubud, for a comfortable stay.


Discovering Ubud's Scenic Spots

The town centre, as you might have guessed, is always busy. To get away from the traffic, you can try visiting a number of tranquil and scenic spots located just outside. One of the popular places to go to is the Saraswati temple with its well-known lotus pond. Take some time to go off on your own, and you will be quite surprised by the things you encounter during your walk around the area.


Kecak Dance Performance

Ubud has its own dance performances. These are deep-rooted in their culture and traditions. Therefore, do not forget to watch one of these amazing ensembles. Most tourists rave on about the Kecak dance which takes place at the Junjungan village temple. In this dance, around sixty men wear beautiful sarongs and dance to a haunting soundtrack while telling a story of the Ramayana.


Rent a scooter

Ubud is the perfect place to rent a scooter or a motorbike to discover the surrounding area. You can walk it too, but it's much cooler in a bike. Renting bikes is quite cheap, where it'll cost you about $4 a day. Actually, less than that. As traffic can get quite crazy, it will be good to practice outside the busy town and streets, in a quieter area if you are a beginner.



Most Yogis around the world head to Ubud for the perfect yoga vacation. This is a haven for all yogis. Thus, you need to book a class or multiple classes and attend a few. You won't regret it!


Cooking Classes

How about practising a few local dishes when in Ubud? This is one of the best experiences here. Cooking classes involves market visits and learning the art of buying the correct ingredients. Once you've done that, an experienced chef will teach you how to cook. And guess what? This class is very hands-on, where you'll be whipping up your own local dish in no time.


Dining with a pleasant view

No one can deny the pleasure of having an exquisite meal surrounded by amazing views. As such, this is one of the experiences you can have when in Ubud. You can have views of rivers, river gorges and rice fields. Choose a good restaurant that boasts of incredible views, for a romantic meal.
