Ubud is famous for rice terraces and the spectacular view of the Agung volcano and mountains. Ubud is the center of Bali’s arts scene and is home to a few museums and galleries. Situated 20 miles northeast of Bali airport, Ubud is surrounded by rice fields and small villages. A gentle destination, far from the mayhem of the coast, Ubud is actually a cluster of separate villages. Nearby you will find Monkey Forest Park which is home to hundreds of monkeys.
