Culture and history near Ubud holiday homes to rent

Think Ubud's just for shoestring backpackers? Think again. Sure, there are still plenty of budget-friendly options, but these days Ubud vacation rentals and attractions run the full gamut from low-key to seriously ritzy. Set among rice paddies and forests, this arty town is an Indonesian institution, and Ubud was immortalised in the famous book Eat Pray Love (and the subsequent film with Julia Roberts). As you wander its galleries, palaces, museums and temples, you'll soon realise what the fuss is all about, and just how much there is to fall in love with in this beautiful corner of Bali.

History

Historic sites near Ubud holiday rentals

Ubud is filled with beautiful historic sites that offer a glimpse into the area’s rich history. Holiday rentals are available near places like Museum Puri Lukisan, an art museum with Balinese artworks throughout history, and Ubud Palace, an iconic temple with art, Balinese dance performances and lush surrounds.

Things to do

Attractions near Ubud holiday accommodation

With Ubud vacation rentals, there seems to be art pretty much wherever you turn, and there are some great galleries, including the Neka Art Museum and the Blanco Renaissance Museum. Top of the list for most Ubud visitors is a trip out to the 'elephant cave' of Goa Gajah – an ancient religious site with spectacular rock carvings. Another favourite is Ubud Monkey Forest, a forested park and temple complex that sees thousands of visitors looking to monkey around with the local population of crab-eating macaques. Just make sure you keep a close eye on your sandwiches.

Activities

Things to do near Ubud holiday rentals

One thing people realise very quickly during their Ubud vacation rentals is that Balinese food is something a bit special, and Ubud's full of cooking schools where you can learn those all-important skills for yourself. The town's also craft central, and you'll want to set aside some time for browsing the sprawling art markets. And at the end of a long day taking it all in, you'll be relieved to hear that massage is big in Bali. Ubud's got plenty of masseurs ready to soothe away your aches and pains, with some seriously opulent spas if you're looking to splash out.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Ubud holiday homes

Want the good news first? The town's located quite high up, making Ubud vacation rentals a good deal cooler than many other areas of Bali. All the same, it can get pretty hot at the height of the day, and there's some serious humidity to go with it, so you know the deal – take it easy and keep hydrated. Consistent temperatures make Bali popular year-round, but numbers of travellers tend to drop off during the monsoon season. This mainly runs between December and March, and while you might get better deals on accommodation, you'll need to remember your rain poncho.

Good for couples

Couple's retreat near Ubud holiday homes
