Ubud and around

Ubud is a rather dispersed community, spread over hills and valleys with deep forested ravines and terraced ricefields. For many tourists, Ubud has become the cultural heart of Bali, with its numerous artists' studios and galleries as well as a plentiful supply of shops selling clothes, jewellery and woodcarving. Unfortunately, the town has succumbed to tourism in the last few years, with a considerable amount of development.

During the rainy season Ubud gets more rain than the coastal resorts and can be very wet and much cooler.
