What To Expect

Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary
You are going to spend a generous time here. As the name suggests, it is a small forest with a Hindu temple located on Jalan Monkey Forest. The temple walls surround the area, making the forest sacred. The Monkey Forest is actually a natural reserve for the monkeys. The place is a great example of how nature and humans can live together in harmony. The monkeys are the main appeal because they are free to roam around.

Some temple festivals are often held here – yes, with the monkeys present and around. Joining a tour is the best way to get to the place, especially if you are staying in far-away places. But if you are staying in Ubud, you can always reach the forest easily.

Elephant Cave
It is basically a popular temple complex that isn’t far from Ubud. The temple is said to be built in the 9th century and it is surrounded by lush greeneries of nature. One of the many reasons why you should come to the temple is the architecture, which combines both architectural style of Buddhism and Hinduism. You can see the example right away from the main entrance that resembles a demon’s open mouth. You can also see the bathing pools with their own unique designs and construction. Feel free to roam around the temple too. But whatever you do, be respectful. After all, it is a sacred place.

Tegalalang Rice Terrace
You probably have seen these beautiful green hills with the line of layered terraces on their sides. Well, it’s the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace – a popular place to take pictures or as your Instagram background. The rice terrace is super well-maintained and explored. If you see the view from afar, the rice terrace looks like this green and big layered cake.

On the contrary to what you believe, finding the rice terrace isn’t exactly easy, especially if this is your first time coming to Ubud. But if you are coming to the place, do it in the morning or late in the afternoon – just don’t go at midday. It is going to be super hot and it can be uncomfortable. But even if you don’t have a long time to spare, a quick visit would be enough to take some shots and photos.

Tegenungan Waterfall
It is one of the many popular waterfalls in the island. Because of its popularity, expect the place to be well-maintained. Even when you go down the stairs, they are pretty safe. Not only you can enjoy the waterfall, but you can also take a relaxed dip. Taking pictures is possible. You can even make use of some services where you can take pictures with accessories.

On your way to reach the Tegenungan Waterfall, you may see another smaller waterfall. You can also take pictures here before continuing your way to the waterfall. It may seem like a far travel from the parking lot, but it is worth the efforts.

Ubud Traditional Art Market
If you go there, it would seem like visiting a somewhat chaotic hippie village and yet in an organized way. This is your go-to place to buy souvenirs and art stuff. If you are into woven bags, silk scarves, or handmade baskets, this is the right place to do so. These items are handmade and they are from the local Balinese neighboring areas – you can bet that you won’t be able to find those items elsewhere.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Saraswati Temple
The sacred place is built to honor Goddess of Knowledge, Saraswati. That’s why the temple is very artistic and beautiful. When compared to other temples, this one has a pool with a lot of lotus. It is also adorned by many carving styles. Kecak dance is often performed at the courtyard every Thursday night. If you want to view the beautiful carving, the water park as well as the lotus pond, or the Kecak dance, then this is your go-to place.

Our driver was Tude and he was great! Clean car and bottled water available. Tude was patient with our requests to stop and exchange money or add extra stops that were not in our itinerary. Tude also answered our multiple questions we asked throughout the day and told us information about each stop when we were there. We recommend this tour!!

Good tour, with Excellent Driver Tude. Tude was a patient and careful driver, through the usual traffic jams & chaos going to and getting back from ,Ubud. He was well-informed and did well to convey useful information on Bali & the spots we visited. Based on experience with other guides in Bali, we'd rate him 8-9 out of 10, with the average being around 4-5 out of 10.

The tour itself was excellent - but the Bali Rice Terraces were a joke, given they were purely around a wanly-located, Tourist Set-up, Single Valley with Instagram in mind, and not in any way representative of real agricultural vistas, which can be seen in other locations around rural Bali.

Enjoyed the side trips to Wood-carving workshops/ showrooms, Silver-smithing & jewellery Showrooms, and Coffee Production business.

Monkey Forest is now well laid out, with many dozens of attendants on hand for security / safety from the monkeys, including helping tourists with photos with the monkeys.

The Elephant Cave Temple was a standout cultural site.

Overall, the tour is good value for money, with all entrance fees paid, and again - an excellent guide in Tude.
