Ubud in Bali is one of those destinations that you need to explore at least once in your life! I created this 3 days Ubud itinerary to Help you discover this amazing area of Bali. Ubud is full of incredible lush rainforest, amazing rice terraces, cute but also scary monkeys, amazing food and so much more. And with just 3 days in Ubud, you can only explore so much! Since Ubud is located up there in the middle of the jungle, it is not really the easiest place to visit if you have only got time for a super short trip to the country. In my 7-day Bali road trip itinerary, I did include a couple of stops in Ubud, but when you are on the road, it is not possible to explore the depths of a location. And since Ubud was probably my most favourite stop during my trip to Bali, I wanted to make sure you would be able to explore everything you should! Thankfully, you can really pack a lot in with only 3 days in Ubud, including taking some day trips and exploring the town’s main highlights. Buckle up for this detailed itinerary which will explain what to do in Ubud in 3 days, including lots of extra handy information if you are heading to the island for the very first time!
If you are planning to travel to Bali, then I am certain you have heard of the spectacular Tegalalang Rice Terrace. If you are planning to visit one (Hint: you should) then make sure to read this post. During my first trip to Bali, I did a full-day guided tour with a local. Besides the mental monkeys at the monkey sanctuary, I also stopped at the Tegalalang Rice Terrace. The stunning Rice Terrace is part of the Cultural Landscape of Bali Province UNESCO World Heritage Site, comprises of lush emerald-green terrace’s still being worked by local rice farmers. You truly have to see it in order to grasp its beauty. So here’s everything you need to know about a quick trip to Bali’s famous rice fields in Ubud, the Tegallalang Rice Terrace.
If you are planning your first trip to Bali, Indonesia, then a trip to Ubud Monkey Forrest is kind of a must! Ubud Monkey Forest, also known as the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions. A natural forest sanctuary that is home to a large horde of grey long-tailed macaques. I visited this sanctuary during my trip to Bali last year. Due to some nastiness at the end of my holiday, I kind of forgot to write a couple of blog posts, including this one. So in this blog post, I will take you along with me to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. I will show you the best way to get there, what it costs, what to do and what not to do when wandering around this amazing jungle whilst being surrounded by cheeky monkeys.
Ubud is located in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency, on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Ubud was made into one of Bali’s most famous destinations when it appeared in the movie “Eat, Pray, Love’ with Julia Roberts. It still encompasses what I envision authentic Indonesia should look like. Lush green rice fields, waving palm trees, friendly locals and cheap but delicious food. It was definitely one of my favorite stops during my May 2018 exploration of the tropical island. Ubud is known as the spiritual home of the island, but your local experience wouldn’t be complete without a wander around the rice fields, lunch at one of the many local coffee shops, an afternoon with some monkeys, or a visit to one of the many beautiful temples. It, therefore, makes for a perfect relaxing getaway and offers you a unique insight into Balinese living.
