Ubud is a very special place in Bali that everyone should visit – even if it is just for 24 hours.

Luxury Escapes brings you the seven things you have to do if you’re visiting the cultural capital of Bali!

To market, to market

Start your day early by getting up with the sun, and visiting a traditional Balinese food market! If you’re staying at a hotel, the chef will most likely get fresh meat and produce from the markets, so ask if you can join! Be prepared to have your senses sent into overdrive with the rich and vibrant aromas of spices, fragrant flowers, exotic fruits and fresh seafood.


Discover the rice paddies

Ubud is beautifully set among rolling hills and rice paddies, so make sure to explore the area surrounding the main streets. Hire a bike or go for a leisurely walk among the lush green fields, and watch the Balinese farmers in action, tending their crop.

Do a cooking class

Why leave all those great tastes on your holiday?  Do a cooking class, and have a Balinese chef teach you all the secrets behind the magnificent, local cuisine. You will no doubt enjoy trying to master the art of Balinese cooking, but the best part is that you’ll get to feast on your culinary masterpieces once the cooking class is over!

Kick back by the pool

Ubud is nestled inland in Bali, so make sure you stay at a resort with a plunge pool so you can cool down during the day, as it can get quite humid. Enjoy relaxing by the pool for a few hours in the afternoon – cocktails in hand of course!

Visit an Ubud medicine man

Walk in the footsteps of Julia Roberts’ character in “Eat, Pray Love” and visit a local medicine man to have your palms read and future foretold.

Let go with Legong

Legong, a traditional Balinese dance, is part of the religious and artistic expression among the locals. Enjoy a show while feasting on local dishes, and prepare to be impressed!

Pamper yourself

Bali is famous for its amazing and affordable spa treatments. So why don’t you finish the day with a relaxing massage at the hotel spa? You will drift into a deep sleep, and it is truly the perfect way to finish 24 amazing hours in Ubud.
