There is no better place to be at the start of the day than Tegalalang Rice Terrace. These gorgeous rice terraces are stunning in the early morning light. It is a favorite spot, so if you would like to experience it peacefully, we would recommend visiting at sunrise. It had been one of our favorite experiences in Bali.
- Brave the Holy Monkey Forest
In here, you are going to get up close and personal with the local monkeys who love nothing but prey on distracted tourists. Many visitors have those monkeys going through their backpacks or in the process to snatch anything on the tourists’ hands. Don’t come with food or drink unless you’re seeking to become a monkey magnet! But it’s a beautiful forest on the edge of Ubud, and the fighter antics are a great deal of fun to watch. It is the ideal place to go if you are a bit tired of the busy streets outside.
- Get spiritual at Pura Tirta Empul Temple
The devout people bathe in the holy water as part of a ritual cleaning, and it is a unique sight to see. We enjoy wandering around the site looking at the elaborate carvings. As with Bali temples, you need to pay your legs, so it’s helpful to have a sarong with you.

Waterfalls do not get much more atmospheric than Tukad Cepung Waterfall. This waterfall is a 1-hour drive from Ubud, place within a cave system which permits in incredible shafts of light.
It’s the most unique waterfall we have ever seen, and definitely one of the best waterfalls in Bali. The water is too shallow to get a suitable swim, but you can definitely have a waterfall shower!
- Get some measures in at Pura Gunung Kawi Temple
Pura Gunung Kawi unites both temples and rice terraces, and the result is spectacular. You enter by strolling down over 100 steps along with the opinion which opens up until you is from the world. You can walk around the rice terraces and shrines on a large number of different pathways, and frequently you will find you’re only one there. Apparently, there are already lots of tour buses stop here in the morning, so probably early morning or late afternoon would be ideal for a peaceful adventure.
