Ubud

getting a culture shock when reaching this touristic town on Bali island

Location: 

Ubud, Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

Duration: 

Friday, June 16, 2017

Personal highlights

  1. Ubud: once a natural paradise, turned into a touristic attraction without charme
  2. Ubud Monkey Forest: a terrible tourist attraction, where monkeys attack tourists
  3. Ubud Market: huge area packed with ventors and tourists to make a good deal
  4. Culture: the town has a large number of museums and cultural shows (missed all)
  5. Tourism: quite a culture shock for me after traveling through Java Island!
