Over the past year, I’ve been based in Ubud working – amongst other things – as the publicist for the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, the Bali Emerging Voices Festival and the newly launched Ubud Food Festival.
It shames me that I managed to pass eight weeks in one of Indonesia’s most renowned culinary locations and didn’t manage to post a single blog. I blame the hedonistic lifestyle of Ubud, how you can flit from one café to the next sampling organic, vegan or just straight-up delicious delights without a second thought or even second’s walk away.
I recently descended upon the lush greenery of Bali’s cultural capital and home to the infamous Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, Southeast Asia’s largest and most celebrated literary event
If you’re sick of Ubud’s endless rice fields and looking for a change of scenery, the views don’t come much better than Kupu Kupu Barong Resort and Spa
Few people can fail to contain a smile (or scream) watching the residents of Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest wile away their day, whether it be eating, sleeping, climbing, fighting or just watching tourists wander by
This gorgeous beauty spa on the outskirts of Ubud is designed to make the most of its natural surroundings, where you can have a facial, massage or a mani-pedi while overlooking the scenery and batting off giant butterflies.
