Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

2014, 2019, 2020; 6 WEEKS (until April 8, 2020)

 

In Summary: Congested, Instagrammable, police bribes, Australian, polluted, expensive

  • So many distinct areas to explore on this 50mile island: Ubud, Canggu, Uluwatu, Kuta, Seminyak, Lovina
  • The vast majority of cafe’s are outside/without A/C which makes it uncomfortable to work for extended periods of time.
  • Businesses will charge you between 8–12% tax. Some prices are inclusive and some are exclusive of this tax.
  • There is a latin dance community (ubud) active each night of the week!
  • Surprisingly, the produce at the supermarket is of low quality. Many times I find the item is old or soft or soggy.
  • Sometimes the ATM machines release your debit card after you take your money. I forgot mine once.
  • The corrupt police are a little too active for my liking. I got stopped twice on my way home and had to bribe the first and tell the second I already bribed one.
  • The play this mad hatter type music everywhere, you'll hear it outdoors, in grocery stores, everywhere.
  • Stairs are decorated with colorful flowers with awesome designs (ubud)
  • Must be the vegan capital of the world. That and meditation, yoga, mindfulness stuff.
  • Watch out for scooters driving the wrong way on a one-way road
  • Skinniest roads ever and two cars still just barely fit on them
  • Rent a scooter, they cost 37,500–60,000IDR for the cheapest/smallest engines. The best price I got was on a nicer bike at 1,200,000 per two weeks when they started at 250K per day

I also visited Gili Trawangan, Nusa Lembongan, Canggu, and Kuta.

Known For: Suckling Pig/Babi guling, yoga, vegetarian paradise
