You're Going to Love Ubud

Wild monkeys, rolling hills, towering mountains, and beautiful rice paddies make up the landscape of Ubud. You'll take one look at it and marvel at the unspoiled beauty.

In the town center you'll find incredible local art, jewelry, and knickknacks, but you don't need to go very far to feel like you're in the deep jungles of Indonesia.

Take a stroll through the Monkey Forest or have dinner overlooking a rice paddy. The people of Ubud love to show you what their country has to offer, so don't be afraid to strike up conversations. Once you arrive, you'll never want to leave.

Because of Ubud's geographic location, it maintains the same temperature pretty much year round, however, you should avoid Ubud between June and October, as that's monsoon season, when it rains every single day, and quite hard. While this doesn't make visiting impossible, it makes it harder to plan your daily activities. Most days have a low of 65 and up to a high of 90.
