Ubud Bali

Ubud is famous for its regularly nightly traditional dance performances, which are part of the traditional culture and are arranged for tourists on a regular schedule. Hindu-Balinese ceremonies take place on a nearly daily basis, especially in the European summer, which is the driest and coolest season here.

Ubud is popular in part today because it is the best place in Bali to break out of the tourist mode and get off the beaten path, although far from undiscovered. Many tourists simply base their entire stay in the city and travel to other destinations from Ubud. Tourism on the island developed after the arrival of Walter Spies who taught painting and music, and dabbled in dance. Spies and foreign painters Willem Hofker and Rudolf Bonnet entertained celebrities includingCharlie Chaplin, Noel Coward, Barbara Hutton, H.G. Wells and Vicki Baum. They brought in some of the greatest artists from all over Bali to teach and train the Balinese in arts, helping Ubud become the cultural centre of Bali. Accommodations in Ubud are also somewhat more reasonably priced than in the beach towns of Bali. But atmosphere is perhaps the major attractions. Most of exclusive hotels in Ubud are perched above the verdant River Gorge such as Ayung River, Petanu River, Oos River, etc, overlooking natural forest and an emerald green cascade of rice paddies.
