Seniman has the best single-origin coffee in Ubud. Meticulously-crafted coffee and a range of other products, and very fine art. This is where the afficionados go.
The most fantastic way to get out of Ubud. Su and Victor know their flying fauna inside and out.
You've got to see the monkeys horseing around in this lush environment. A great place to get photos with the kids being manhandled by the monkeys.
Right near Monkey Forest is the best museum in Ubud set in a well-designed area. The owner is often hanging out nearby and loves to chat with guests, although he's probably far richer than you and I will ever be in our lifetimes!
If you're doing the Bird Walk and headed to the west side of Ubud, then don't miss Gunung Lebah Temple. A major reconstruction completed in early 2015 makes this an amazing sight to see, and even more spectacular in the evening when it's all lit up.
Close to Gunung Lebah and the Bird Walk, if you like walking, keep on going up the Ridge.
The Ubud Kajeng Rice Fields walk is in the neighbourhood too, so rather than just wander around all the other tourists, head out here instead.
The only place to buy souvenirs. If the asking price seems high, even by cheap standards, then respond with as low as 1/8, or 1/5, or 1/3 the price and see what price they offer next. You never know!
You can eat Halal when you're back home, but pork is the main white meat of the Balinese. There's a reason why, and you'll know what it is when you've tried it.
The best Thai food you can have that isn't in Thailand! If you really can't eat pork, then take a short stroll here, you'll be glad you did.
