Distance to Ubud from Sanur

We will be staying at Mercure resort in Sanur, and would like to visit Ubud one of our days. How long would it take to get there with a car and driver?

Also is it better to book a driver in advance or can it be done once we get there? will be there 30 July - 4 Aug.

The distant from Sanur to Ubud approximately 30 Km, it will take you more or less an hour dependent on the traffic. I Had been there twice, it was very nice, mostly the people and the culture! there were a lot of Car rental in Bali, you may pick one of them, they will drive you to where you wishes! sometime you will meet very aggressive street vendor who sell their own stuff , Just say " no Thanks". wish you all the best.

you can either book a local driver from sanur or book in advance. we have a list of recommended drivers on the bali forum home page. e mail a few and see who is available. some book out well in advance. If you book one of the recommended drivers they can suggest some places and help plan your day. Ubud is a lovely place to visit and there are also some sights worth seeing in the surrounding area. If you tell the driver your interests he can recommend places in advance and that will give you time to do some more research. I allow one hour to get to Ubud from Sanur. there is a good group of drivers who stand just outside the mercure.

I highly recommend you not just pop into Ubud for a look around, you will be disappointed. The magic of Ubud is to meet the local people, see the arts and crafts, attend the ceremonies and dance and music performances, take walks through rice fields and to relax and learn about the culture. It's a much more traditional area than Sanur and completely different.

That said, it is about a 45 minute drive to Ubud, and there are lots of drivers around Bali who can take you anywhere. If you only are coming to Ubud for one day, all the drivers know the basic tourist sights, rice terraces, Monkey Forest, Ayung River (do the rafting, it's beautiful) Museums, Gunung Kawi, Goa Gajah, etc etc. On the way, you can check out the Bali Bird Park. Stay for the evening and take in one of the gamelan and dance performances.

HI,

Just so you know, the cost of going from Ubud to Sanur, shouldn't be greater than 300,000. Bargain hard and stay in Ubud for a while, i agree. Its really worth it :)

Good luck.
