ART AND CULTURE
Ubud-bound explorers should begin at Ubud Palace, the former home of the last King of Ubud, located at the town’s central crossroads and host to nightly dance performances on a gilded hand-carved platform above the grand gardens.
Animal lovers may wish to visit the sacred monkey forest nearby.
Ubud boasts nearly as many museums as temples. Those worth visiting include the Neka Museum for Balinese and Indonesian art, the Blanco Renaissance Museum, the Rudana, Puri Lukisan and ARMA Museum, particularly on full and new moons for classic Balinese Cak Rina dance.
Shadow puppetry and fire dance performances fill the evening calendar up here while special events in Ubud include the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival held every October.
