Walking on the sea bed is one of the most interesting experiences you can have with the entire family.
Enjoy the Best of Ubud’s Food and Countryside
No holiday strip to Bali is complete without having a taste of the unique local cuisine. For instance, you will never forget the taste of ‘Babi Guling‘, Bali’s iconic dish which is made from a complete roasted young pig. One of the best places to eat this dish is at Ibu Oka, a popular kitchen at Ubud. You will also relish the taste of ‘Sate Lilit’ – rolled minced meat on a lemon grass stick. In addition to the great culinary experience, you should also prepare to enjoy the serene and refreshing views of the Ubud countryside. Instead of trekking all day, you may take a cycling tour of this countryside, interact with friendly locals, and see its rice field terraces.
