Take me to the land of Ubud…

After exploring Seminyak for three days we decided to venture to Ubud. This was the place I was most excited about visiting, it’s the upland of Bali and is know for its traditional crafts, terraced rice paddies and Hindu temples. 

Ubud popularity continues to grow, adding on the hoopla created by Eat, pray, love. You can experience a variety of markets if it’s shopping you’re looking for or find tranquility in a yoga retreat.

We stayed in a little hotel just outside of Ubud centre, and it was its own little haven. 

The staff were incredibly welcoming and extremely friendly, you simply couldn’t ask for more. They advised us the best places to go, arranged everything for us and couldn’t do enough for you.

Bali’s average wage is incredibly low and they rely on Tip’s to get by, so if you’re heading over there please consider a decent tip! 

Bali is full of remarkable architecture and other beautiful scenic sites to be found with a genuine feeling of wellbeing to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings and climate of the place. 

‘Offerings’ were one of the first things I fell in love with when I arrived in Ubud. They are leaf baskets filled with rice, flowers and other little things. They are dotted everywhere, I found peace and tranquility whenever I saw one.

Offerings are gifts, they are a means of giving something back. They are to give pleasure to the gods (and demons), they provide good karma to those involved in their preperation. Nearly every village has its own unique form of offerings.
