ubud

hi we are off to bali again this year, and usually do a day trip to ubud.

Just wondering if the market, main street have the most restaurants and shops,

Last time we wondered around the surrounding streets to other shops etc, but just not sure

if we are missing any where else in ubud.

We are a family of 5 , three children from 7-16 so we just mainly want to have lunch , do some shopping and wonder around. Others on TA seem to mention lots of shops restaurants that i don't think we have come across.

thanks

A day trip is not really enough to see all of the shops and restaurants in Ubud. A lot of shops and restaurants to be found on:

Jl Hanoman

Jl Dewi Sita

Jl Goutama

Jl Raya Ubud

Monkey Forest Rd

there are numerous other places dotted all around e.g. Jl Raya Sanggingan, Jl Raya Pengosekan

You could consider asking your driver to take you along Jl Raya Andong towards Tegallelang where there are miles of homeware type shops selling at wholesale/fixed prices. Best not to go on a Sunday though, as many are closed.

You could also consider actually seeing a bit more of Ubud, rather than just the main town block.

thanks Hamish07,

will have to make a few trips in, sounds like i could spend a lot of time just browsing.

Are the streets you mentioned within walking distance from each other or would we need

a taxi to get around these areas

Ubud downtown has a bad one-way traffic system that goes in a large approx 2 kilometer circle because of a 100 meter long roadblock.

If you do have to take a car in its' better to be dropped off on the main N-S road - Jalan Raya - and then walk through the streets Monkey Forest, Hanoman, Gautama, Dewi Sita etc. You will save a lot of bad traffic and avoid adding to it yourself.

Ubud is much more than cafes and shops, though, Ubud is actuallly better for museums, art and dance performances, temples, scenery etc and those are worth much more than just a day trip.

click on this link to Ubud map and you will see the streets I mentioned, zoom in for more detail. openstreetmap.org/#map=16/-8.5133/115.2639

As mentioned above there is a lot more to Ubud particularly in the surrounding areas. I'll be staying for 5 days this year and don't think that's enough time to fit in what I want to do.
