3.Go on a Sunrise Hike on Mount Batur

Seeing the sunrise on the top of Mount Batur is the third one on best things to do in Ubud. And Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking is one of the best experiences through 10 months in Southeast Asia. It’s so incredible! The journey to get to the top isn’t that glamours (getting up at 1:30 am, walking up the steep mountain in the dark) but I definitely recommend Sunrise Hike on Mount Batur!

  • Tip: Regular price is 350,000 Rp for pick-ups, a guide, one meal, a bottle of water, a flashlight(you have to return it after hiking) but my friend and I checked almost every travel agency in Ubud and found a place offering 250,000Rp. Do some work if you want to get a good price! ๐Ÿ˜‰

4.Shopping at Ubud Market

The fourth one on best things to do in Ubud is to go shopping! If you are a big fan of shopping, don’t miss Ubud Market. You are totally going to regret. This marketย has a lot to offer, but Silver earrings, cute dresses, and nice knitted tops are my top favorites on my shopping list. I really enjoyed bargaining with people there. When you try to negotiate the price, they always say pay a little bit more for the good luck! Haha! I found them so cute saying it. It’s a really good trick that you may lose…… But try hard! Bargain! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The fifth one on best things to do in Ubud is to take a slow walk in Ubud. It’s always so interesting to watch locals whenever you visit a new place. In Ubud, Bali, You can see students going to school early in the morning, an old Balinese lady praying, ย Balinese girls posing for tourists’ cameras, Balinese ladies carrying some woven baskets on their heads, and Balinese boys playing soccer on the soccer field… Don’t think, just take a map, and let your legs decide where to go to see what’s happening in Ubud. ๐Ÿ˜‰

6. Enjoy Jazz night on Sunday at Casa Luna

The last one on best things to do in Ubud is to enjoy Jazz night at Casa Luna! I went Casa Luna’s Jazz night on Sunday on my first visit to Ubud. I loved it so much and I had to go back with my friend! Unlike my first visit in Ubud, I was a backpacker on my second visit. But I treated myself with really nice Indonesian food and a glass of red wine. It was a perfect way to finish my last night in Ubud. The Jazz vocalist’s voice is so deep and rich that you will fall in love with her voice. Enjoy!

    1. Sorry! Unfortunately, I don’t have a contact with Mt.Batur tour. But I have a solution for you. Once you arrive, you can walk around Ubud (Ubud is quite small), and ask the price. It’s the best way to walk around and bargain the price than pre booking and pays more than you should pay. I paid 350,000 rupiah for the trip including simple food, a bottle of water, a flashlight, and a tour guide! There were like 8-10 people in one group with one guide. They will pick you up, take you to MT. Batur sunrise viewpoints, and bring you home. It’s a quite a good deal. You can get a good deal if you go with more than 2 people. I hope this helps!
