Travel guides invariably describe Ubud as the cultural pulse of Bali, where art and religion dominate all aspects of daily life. It is essentially an area that incorporates several villages spread across a rural landscape blessed with rice terraces and an intricate network of flowing rivers. Central Ubud is a visual feast for travellers; a melting pot that reveals a royal palace and traditional marketplace against a contrast of modern galleries and chic cafés.
