Culture Fix – article looking at the cultural side of Ubud, Bali

Paradise – Air Niugini. July – August 2017

Mark Andrews visits Ubud, where dance, temples and good Balinese food inspire him.

Do you need transport?’ reads the sign held up high by the Balinese spruiker as I leave my hotel. I shake my head and he turns the sign around. On the back, it pleadingly reads ‘Maybefor tomorrow?’

Meanwhile, a Balinese long-tailed macaque picks through one of today’s offerings before hurling it to the ground in a show of disapproval. Welcome to another morning on Ubud’s Monkey Forest Road.

While it is easy to eat, pray, love in Bali, there are also rewards from exploring the island’s cultural side. And there is no better place to do this
than from Ubud.
