Ubud is a central town in Bali and is completely opposite of what you think of when you hear the word 'Bali'. It is a quaint, little town of artists and is regarded as the arts and craft hub with all the the galleries and artists' workshops in the town and nearby villages. There is a lot of culture and history to be seen in the surroundings. The architecture of the town also adds value to it.
Ubud can perhaps be described as a place where things work in their own pace. It is also one of those places which require you to spend a considerable amount of time there to let it grow on you. It is far from the fast paced lives of the cities and is still home to terraced rice fields along the rivers. It is a town dripping with culture and art. Artisans' workshops and galleries add to the unique charm of this unique sounding place. There are many budget accomodations avalilable around the town which makes it even more laid back. While Ubud might seem like a small town, it is actually a cluster of fourteen villages, each run by its own banjar (village committee).
