Sacred Monkey Forest
I passed the soccer field and turned to the right and at the end of the field to the left. I ran into the main road and followed it to the right across a bridge and arriving at the Bale Banjar Dungin Lebak. Once past this building there is a small path to the right that enters between rice fields. I followed him and without fear I crossed the rice paddies and watched people work in the fields. Some Selamat Pagi and nobody told me anything. Only one man approached me to ask insistently if I needed guidance. I preferred to save my money and make my way on my own, so I dismissed his offer and continued north across the beautiful rice fields bathed in water.
Rice fields in Ubud
At one point, I turned to the right to return to the road. Following a small aqueduct I found a bridge to save the river and finally reach the road. I contracted in Penestanan and from there I gradually followed the road until I reached the center of Ubud.
Once back to Ubud I visited the Ubud Palace and the Puri Sarem Agung. It is a huge and beautiful complex full of ornaments and Hindu statues. The royal family still lives inside and can walk freely to the outside area.
A little further north there is the Pure Marajan Agung With a beautiful door at its entrance. It is the private temple of the Ubud royal family.
After the visits I spent the afternoon shopping. Speaking with a few travel companions, everyone agreed that Ubud is the best place in Indonesia to make your travel purchases.
You will find the Pass Seni (art market) right in the center of the city. Even so, you will find hundreds of shops around the city and its exteriors with all kinds of items. A great variety of clothes, figures carved in wood or silver, paintings, oils and all kinds of souvenirs.
