I'm just going to say it. I love Ubud. It's true. I'm not sure you can do anything but love it. There is a real sense of spirituality that you don't find anywhere else. It's full of artists, creativity, and spirituality. I was particularly interested in the handicrafts. While there is a large market in the center of town with several stalls, nearby streets also are chock full of amazing finds. Put on your bargaining hat.
And if you are staying in Ubud, or just visiting for the day, there are plenty of activities to fill your time. Looking for the perfect place to stay in Bali? Check out these amazing listings on Luxe Nomad. What does after school pick up look like? There no minivans in sight. Only scooters.
Dear Ubud, I can't wait to see you again.
