Central Bali provides those quintessential landscapes of steeped rice terraces, serene lakes and lush river valleys by the bucket load. It's also home to the town of Ubud, which is often hailed as the spiritual heart of the island. Now whilst the Yoga bunnies, organic foodies and spiritual healers take centre stage in town, the performers and artisans that first drew travellers to town still thrive in the villages surrounding Ubud. Although located just over an hour from the beaches of Southern Bali, we wholeheartedly recommend spending a few days in Ubud, and holing up in a charming boutique hotel
or luxury spa resort on the outskirts of town. Day trippers from the larger hotels in Southern Bali can often take over the centre of town during the day, and so this is the ideal time to escape, and explore the beautiful countryside by foot or bicycle, visit artisans in their village workshops as they carve wood, stone and silver, and perhaps chance upon a temple ceremony in local villages.
