    Home to numerous yoga sanctuaries, meditation classes and healthy cuisine, Ubud has become the star of the island for people to heal, refresh and recharge their mind, body and soul. But there is more to Ubud than just finding some peace and quiet. These are the eight activities you need to tick while in Ubud.

    Yoga Sessions
    Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, and whether or not you’re a yoga enthusiast, joining yoga classes in Ubud is a must-try at least once. The Yoga Barn hosts classes surrounded by lush greenery, allowing you to not only connect with your soul but also the environment.

    Be a Balinese
    Learn a little bit more about Balinese traditions by joining fun workshops. Paon Bali Cooking Class will teach you all about delicious Balinese dishes, from introduction to locally-sourced ingredients to age-old recipes, and will take you to meet some local farmers. You can also learn a Balinese dance at Ubud Studio or craft your own ceramic at Sari Api Ceramics Studio.

    The Rice Fields
    A walk through the rice fields is surely not to be missed. One of the most popular places is the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, although you should be here early in the morning before the area is packed with tourists and sellers. Another option is to take a walk through the rice fields in the Tjampuhan area where you can stop by at Café Pomegranate or Sari Organik to refresh your energy with their healthy juices and food, or the rice fields surrounding Jungle Fish on Jalan Raya Sebali – or, you know, any other rice fields you find in Ubud.

    Healthy Food
    Healthy cuisine is almost everywhere in Ubud. Café Pomegranate and Sari Organik on Jalan Subak Soh Wayah in Tjampuhan are popular for their delicious healthy food and drinks with a view of the rice fields. Moksa Ubud Plant-based Restaurant & Permaculture Garden in Sayan will also surprise you with its delectable plant-based dishes where almost every element of the dish is homemade using locally-sourced ingredients. One of the must-try at Moksa Ubud is the Tempeh Ribs – presented with homemade barbecue sauce, this dish will please every palate, even the carnivores!

    Ride a Bicycle
    The best way to explore Ubud downtown is by a bicycle so you can easily stop by unique shops that interest you. Besides, Ubud is getting crowded lately, so riding a bike is perfect to avoid being stuck in the traffic. If you want to ride a bike whilst enjoying a view of lush greenery, you can go to Tjampuhan Ridge which is also perfect for an easy walk. There are some shops provide rental bicycle, but you can also ask the inn or resort you’re staying at whether they rent bikes.

    Art and Performances
    Ubud is also haven for art enthusiasts. ARMA Museum and Blanco Renaissance Museum are only a few destinations in Ubud to explore classic and contemporary artworks. For a lively night in Ubud, you can also watch live dance performances like Legong Dance, Ramayana Ballet and Kecak & Fire dance at Ubud Palace, Puri Agung Peliatan, Bale Banjar Ubud Kelod and ARMA Museum.

    Pump Up Adrenaline
    For adventure seekers, Ubud will pump up your adrenaline rush with rafting and canyoning. Bali Adventure Tours and Bali Sobek are only two out of many tour operators that offer rafting experience along the stunning Ayung River, while Adventure and Spirit will take you exploring caves, waterfalls and rivers of Bali through canyoning.

    Cultural Sites
    Last but not least, you should not miss visiting cultural sites in Ubud like the Ubud Palace and Pura Taman Saraswati where you can also see live Balinese dance performances. You can also go temple hopping by visiting the historical Goa Gajah or the ‘Elephant Cave’ and Gunung Kawi Temple, and experience a water purification at Tirta Empul Temple.
