OK, it's in the middle of town (Ubud) and gets a lot of tourists, but this is still a great place to see. To say it's disappointing because it's old just misses the point. The monkeys are everywhere and if you enjoy photography, you'll get a lot of great shots here. Keep an eye on your things - no, hold tightly onto your things - because they'll take your hat, purse, camera and anything else you have. in fact, just leave everything in the car. Bring a camera, but hold on to it and you'll be fine.
This is a fun place so be sure not to miss it if you're in Ubud.
Indonesia may only be rivaled by Hawaii for having the best surf in the world. When it comes to uncrowded perfection, there simply is not comparison anywhere. Be careful though, Indonesia is for experienced surfers. There are places you can go to learn, but don't do it alone. Make sure you have experienced guides who know the area and the breaks. Bali is the places to start. Head to Kuta Beach for a warm up session. If you don't need one, head straight to Uluwatu, a wave that needs to be on any surfer's bucket list. Don't forget Dreamland, Padang Padang and Keramas for right handers. There are other great places, but you'll have to do your research. And you should do plenty before you go.
Not a big fan of Kuta, but I understand its attraction for some. Kuta is very crowded and over-built in my opinion, though I'd still rather be there than most other places in the world. There are plenty of good restaurants and lots of night life if that's what you want. But why stay with the crowds and craziness when there is an entire island of fascination to be explored? I prefer Sanur, Ubud and perhaps Nusa Dua. Get with a guide and see the island, meet the people and explore the culture. There is so much to see and do that you won't be able to get it all in one trip, which is fine because it gives you a reason to come back to Bali.
