It is home to fine arts, dance and music with a bohemian vibe and is surrounded by scenic rice fields, small villages and ancient temples.

Why not ask us about adding a ‘Balinese Daily Life’ programme into your trip? You could visit a Balinese village where you will learn from the locals how to plough with cows, plant rice and cook local cuisine – an authentic insight into daily life here in Bali and an experience to treasure.
After breakfast you will be collected by your private driver/guide for a full day’s touring around Ubud, visiting museums, palaces and local markets.
Enjoy lunch perched on a ridge above the Sungai Cerik Valley overlooking breath-taking views of hills, rivers and rice terraces. Your day will end at the local market where you can watch locals buying and selling food as well as handicrafts and textiles.
You will be dropped off at your hotel in Sanur, the evening is as leisure.
To the easterly coast of Bali, Sanur is situated on a sandy stretch of beach. It offers a blend of quiet relaxation and buzzing nightlife with plenty of locally owned bars and restaurants. You’ll encounter a more chilled out vibe that can be difficult to find in Bali’s western coast resorts.
You could choose to relax here, or take a day trip to visit Bali’s lakes and hills, explore traditional local markets and visit Ulun Danu temple, one of Bali’s most iconic and photogenic sites.
You will be collected after breakfast and taken to the airport by private car to connect with your international flight back to the UK.
Dry season in Bali runs from April – September, although occasional rainfall can still be expected, and the resorts are busiest during this time. During rainy season Bali becomes quieter although the sun still shines and temperatures remain relatively stable year round meaning Bali can be a great destination at any time of year.
