Get to know Ubud with Viator
Heady incense and soft bell chimes permeate the air in Ubud, Bali’s spiritual epicenter. Emerald rice paddies and Hindu temples abound. It’s easy to see why yogis flock to the small town, which was catapulted to fame by the book, Eat, Pray, Love—Elizabeth Gilbert’s tale of self discovery. As you wander past vegan cafes and boutiques of healing crystals, you’ll likely spot an errant macaque from the Sacred Monkey Forest.
