Ubud is Bali’s historic heart and soul and the center of Balinese art. Traditionally, each village would specialize in a different art form, but these days the sprawl makes it hard to tell where one village ends and the next one begins. Downtown Ubud is full of boutique shops and people carrying yoga mats on their way to and from one of the many yoga establishments. I can imagine the peace and quiet of a decade or two ago, when the narrow streets were full of bicycles and the shops sold Balinese arts and crafts. Now the near constant traffic jam and yoga apparel stores push the idea of traditional Balinese culture further away.

The monkeys are not shy.
Watch out for thieving monkeys. They reach first for your pockets, then will go after anything shiny or that resembles food.
