Bali’s second most important tourist center offers a fantastic symbiosis of nature and culture. In the midst of rice fields, surrounded by small villages such as Campuan, Peliatan and Pengosekan, it is alluring for walks, short walking tours or cycling. Ubud is the artistic center of the island, where the most painters, woodcarvers, dancers and Gamelan musicians live. The best dancing on the island is performed here every evening.

In the 1930s, the German painter Walter Spies and the Dutchman Rudolf Bonnet founded the Pita Maha art school here which has strongly influenced Balinese painting. The works of European and local painters of various styles are exhibited in the Ubud museum. Puri Lukisan in the center of town, Museum Neka north of Campuhan and the Agung Rai Museum of Art in Pengosekan. Monkey Forest Road lies at the center of the shops and restaurants and is often the only road that visitors see on short visits to Ubud.
