Signature trips

Ubud is the epicenter of all things related to arts and crafts on Bali. Start your day out to hilly resort with a visit to the Neka Museum. Wander through the various halls with priceless paintings of Indonesian and foreign masters. Even in the 21th century there are still many places in and around Ubud where young artists adhere to the “Balinese school” of painting. It is the movement of painters who blend the best of local traditions with contemporary elements into quite astonishing works of art. Just outside Ubud, you’ll visit the sacred place of Goa Gajah. It is a uniquely shaped temple, a famous medieval meditation centre for both Hindus and Buddhists. In the afternoon, you’ll travel around Ubud and visit places like Kemenuh, Mas and Celuk, famous for traditional woodcarving and gold & silver production.
