Every area of Bali deserves a visit but even if you are tight on time, exploring beyond Ubud is still strongly advisable. An extremely popular trip is to take the scenic drive up to the cooler climate of Kintamani for a boat ride on Batur Lake, the largest lake in Bali – that sits inside the crater of Mount Batur alongside a still-active volcano. After crossing the lake by boat, you can also visit the Trunyan village, where Bali Aga people, the island’s original inhabitants live.

Alternatively, head east to climb Mount Agung, Bali’s highest peak and see the multi-tiered 14th century Pura Besakih mother temple along its slopes. During your tour, stop by the mountain village of Tenganan, known for its unique double ikat weaving and smoked grass woven baskets, before heading back to your rice paddy retreat.
