Once a royal town, Ubud is the main focus of Balinese culture. It is packed with beautiful palaces standing as historical landmarks. Centrally located, Ubud offers quick access to sacred temples, artisan shops, dance, music shows and even a monkey sanctuary. Ubud Art Market sells everything from humble souvenirs to artistic pieces. Pura Besakih, Elephant Cave and Goa Gajah are popular Hindu temples among 10,000 others or more. Terraced rice paddies on the island are set amidst an emerald green background. Very close to Ubud is the Elephant Cave or Goa Gajah which is also used as a Buddhist temple. It is carved in sacred figures and carries a lot of history. A huge bathing pool in the temple was created to purify souls and repel danger and evil powers. If you want to reserve a hotel in Bali where there's plenty of seafood, put Jimbaran Bay on your checklist. Restaurants in this place offer freshwater fish and other seafood. Most eat-outs provide candle-lit outdoor spaces where you can soak your feet in the sand while dining.
Bali offers hotel deals for peculiar places: does staying on the edge of a cliff, giant tree-house, and safari lodge interest you? Yes, you can even spend your holiday in a treehouse with a suspension bridge around Balangan Beach. There are also massive bamboo houses that are perfect for romantic getaways and family gatherings. In Ubud, the tree-houses overlooking rice fields provide amenities and services similar to those of a regular hotel in Bali. They even have refreshing jungle plunge pools with private waterfalls and outdoor bathtubs. Ultra-romantic restaurants in Badung will impress you when you travelling with your date. Imagine dining in a tower amidst the jungle or on a rushing river. Dine with wild animals and enjoy your favourite drinks on a floating hammock.

Tourists particularly love Seminyak as it has everything from designer boutiques to traditional stores. It also has a fair share of stunning beaches and restaurants that remain open into the early hours.
