    A very well maintained, organised place. It's in a thick lush forest centrally located in Ubud.
    Don't take any loose or shiny objects with you and keep distance from the baby monkeys as their mom's may feel threatened. You can take pics with the monkeys with the caretakers around.

    Beautiful path in the middle of the jungle. It’s an easy walk but hot due to no shade. I wish I walked this in the morning because it would have been more tolerable.

    Temple was closed when we went. The area around the temple was open. You can take photos in front of the temple gate. Not too crowded

    Not very hard to get to waterfall that's not far out of Ubud or Gianyar. Good viewing platform above to get photos before going down to the base of the waterfall. Not very busy when we were there so it made it a bit more enjoyable.

    There is a Hindu and Buddhist temple inside. It is quite a small temple and there is nothing much of the info on what I had visited. The price of IDR50,000 is also a bit pricy consider the size of the temple.

    There is some guide who offer to tour around at a fee. Be aware of some people here who offered to help you take a picture and followed you during your visit. I was skeptical at the first place and thought that I might be over cautious. However, the person actually followed us and passionly explained some of the history of the temple and in the end ask for money of IDR150,000 for me and my parents which is ridiculous. I paid him but I feel it is not really ethical as he should have mentioned that and asked if we need his service.

    Climbed Mt Batur for sunrise. Got picked up at 2:30 AM. They provided breakfast at small restaurant before we started. They provided second breakfast at the top with coffee, eggs, toast, fresh fruit (not the normal banana pineapple papaya - but some more unique - mangosteen, and a couple things I can’t remember). Then we stopped at a restaurant for third breakfast - which was a huge buffet. Totally unexpected - or at least I don’t remember being told about it.

    On the hike, our guide - Kadek - explained local history, different plants, the recent volcanic activity and was generally a thoughtful and helpful guy.

    Then we went to the hot springs near Mt Batur which were great. Nice and clean. Other ones on the island not so much.

    As a bonus, on the way home we saw the rice terraces at Teggallalung. They were outstanding. Then as a second bonus, we went to a coffee plantation for the tour and tasting of about 12 different coffee and teas. We maybe got the two add ones cause we didn’t spend a lot of time at the hot springs.

    The Neka Art Museum has a Balinese and foreign art collection inspired by the natural beauty, life and culture of Bali divided amongst several Balinese style buildings. Dutch painter, with Indonesian roots, Arie Smit has his own pavilion for his colourfull painting. Nice museum not far from the centre of Ubud.

    Great Bali market. Lots of handy crafts. You need to do the normal bartering but the shop owners are very friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

    We visited the coffee plantation, where we were taken around by a guide. He showed us the different types of trees used to grow coffee, cacao and lots of other spices/fruits. We were able to see coffee roasting and were given fruit teas and flavoured coffees to try for free.

    They also sold luwak coffee for 50k, a special type of coffee made from the poo of a civet. They had a civet in a cage, ‘for display purposes only’, and wrote on a nearby board that these civets were released every week and a new one taken. Not sure how true this was.

    At the end of the tour, we were taken to a shop where we could buy teas, coffees, oils and more. The guides do not pressure you to buy, but since the tour is free, you feel obliged to get something.

    As part of our tour through Ubud, we found ourselves deep in the commercial end of town (by the Monkey Forest) which is where the Puri Saren Royal Palace lies. If you didn’t know this was where the royal family spent some of their time, you wouldn’t be the only one; the palace itself seems fairly innocuous when compared to the likes of the temples and traditional family houses you see casually around Bali.
    Whilst this may seem to make the royal family that bit more relatable to the average local, in all honesty it was just more of the same that we had come to expect from the temples of Ubud. That was not to say the palace wasn’t an aesthetic marvel, more that the style of Balinese architecture that we had seen throughout our travels in Ubud is itself incredible and this was, at the risk of repeating myself, just more of that.
    Not an essential stop by any means, but if you want more of that Balinese architectural goodness then you can easily fit it into your schedule.

    Worth the price - see the maestro's collection. No camera's are allowed one you enter the museum. Worth to visit for about an hour.
