Exploring Ubud

The next stop for Liam and I was Ubud in central Bali. This area of the island is known for its artistic and cultural pursuits. It is also full of wellness services, such as hair and nail salons, yoga classes and massage therapy. Art galleries and shops selling jewelry are also abundant.

When we arrived in Ubud, we quickly found a guesthouse that suited our needs. We didn’t have a booking, but this time the walk-in method worked out well. The room was spacious, clean, provided breakfast and, most importantly, had air conditioning to combat the heat.

After settling in, we had a wander around the town. The architecture of some temples were amazing. The figures commonly found at roadside altars were stunning. This reflected the high level of skill and craftsmanship of people in this area.

When we could no longer stand the sun’s relentless rays, we took refuge in a small café and got something to drink. Stepping into the air-conditioned shop was a bit like heaven. Who would’ve thought that something as simple as a cold drink and a cool room could feel so good?
