Ubud and Tanah Lot combine a taste of Bali’s cultural and artistic hub, Ubud, with a touch of romance, taking in Bali’s most famous temple, Tanah Lot, at sunset.
|Type||Half Day; Scenic and Cultural, Shopping|
BEGIN…your Ubud and Tanah Lot with a stop at Celuk, famous for its quality jewellery. Cut out the Kuta middleman and grab a bargain in silver or gold.
VISIT…the Sacred Monkey Forest at Padangtegal, very close to Ubud, and home to around 600 cheeky macque monkeys. The cool and dense swath of jungle houses three holy temples, and the Dalem Agung Temple, deep in the forest, has a real ‘Indianna Jones’ feel to it. The monkeys here are not as aggressive as in other parts of Bali, so don’t be afraid if a monkey chooses your shoulder or head as a handy vantage point!
BROWSE…the traditional Art Market (Pasar Ubud) and then explore the streets radiating out from it, which are lined with the wares of various artisans.
CHOOSE…what you do with the next hour or two on your Ubud and Tanah Lot Tour. You might want to just ‘shop till you drop’, or allow a little time to visit one or more of the many art museums and galleries in Ubud. Alternatively, head for Tirta Empul, a temple north of Ubud which houses a complex of fountained bathing pools for a refreshing dip. En-route, there’ll be time for a stop at Taman Saraswati Temple, worth a visit for its very pretty lotus ponds.
EXPLORE…Taman Ayun on your way to Tanah Lot, a huge state temple surrounded by a moat and set in gorgeous landscaped gardens. Behind the elegant moat lies an outer courtyard, featuring expansive manicured lawns, sculptured hedges and tropical plants, and then an inner courtyard with a multitude of multi-tiered shrines.
EXPERIENCE…the romance and splendour of Tanah Lot at sunset as you watch the sun paint the sky with an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour as it slowy drops into the ocean, casting the iconic Tanah Lot in silhouette.
