Do I need 2 or 3 days to cover these in Ubud?  (5 Answers)

Dear fellow travellers,
Is it possible to cover these in 2 days, or do I need 3? Would hiring a driver easen the process?
I would like to see Monkey Forest, have a good walk at Tegallalang paddy field, visit Teba Sari Agrowisata for coffee tasting, have a walk thru Campuhan Ridge walk and visit Ubud palace, Arma museum and maybe Saraswati temple.

Other then these do you suggest any special must-sees around Ubud?
I hear that each detail of Ubud is impressive and it is worth of more than 2-3 days, but I would like to have the best plan with my conditions. Thank you very much.

Accommodations near Kupu Kupu Barong Villas or closer to town  (1 Answer)

I'd read some really conflicting reviews of the above place, and while the setting looks fantastic, the food looked awfully lacklustre and expensive. Given that it's a bit off the beaten path, are there any other places of the same range and style nearby that you could recommend? Or....even closer to town, but preferably with elevation.
We arrive Friday evening.

Accomodation in Ubud  (2 Answers)

We will be in Ubud for 2 days only and are looking for fairly central accommodation. We want to see the Monkey Forest, and stroll around the sites (I don't want to have to hire a car). We'd also like to see some of the rice field (I do understand that without a car we'll be on the beaten track).

We're after a private room, with ensuite. Clean but doesn't have to be fancy, that will allow us to appreciate Ubud by foot. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Long-Term Woodworking Course  (3 Answers)

I am wondering if there is anywhere in Ubud, or anywhere else in Bali where these wood carvers take on apprentices. I am amazed at the beauty of the wood sculpture I see from Bali, and especially Ubud, and I am hoping that there is some way that I can train/study under a woodcarver, whether formally or informally, for at least a year. But any help with any specifics about any carving courses would be appreciated. But I am hoping to find a carver who will be kind enough to take me on as a pupil/apprentice.

2 mths stay for health, healing, rejuvenation and to feed my artistic soul  (6 Answers)

I was recently recommend UBUD as a destination to consider for time out to recover my health, and reignite my spirit, emotionally, physically and artistically. I am single, a photographer / graphic designer and seek a safe place to call home for 2 mths.
On my wish list is the following:

  • A quaint place to stay, picturesque, lush, and quiet ( budget $50 per night)
  • Air con & a good swimming pool that I can exercise in.
  • Easily accessible to markets, cafes, town - as I cant walk distances due to an injured foot. Though I have heard its easy to get around by public transport
  • Would like to also engage in art workshops - and even cooking ones would be great too
  • Affordable daily massages
  • Sound baths or similar if they exist
  • Gentle exercise classes
  • Open to other forms of healing...

Advise given to me was to find a nice place to stay and then go and visit a place called the Yoga Barn as from there I could find many opportunities for health / healing networking and so forth etc.

Does anyone have any tips for art workshops of any kind? A central place like the Yoga Barn maybe and a website perhaps etc.

Are their any forums one can use to network - maybe to find other people in Ubud where one can share interests - ie photography, or just hook up for coffee etc.

I am planning to go Sept / October
I am not a beach or bar person. More inclined to seek peaceful environs....

Many thanks in anticipation.
P.S. I am in my 40's so I would like some comforts but it doesn't have to be extravagant. Gone are the days of backpacking :)
