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.


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.
