Day Tripping around the Ubud Region

Having spent several days working on a book I am editing, I was excited to spend the day out and about in the region surrounding Ubud, Bali. My driver and I created an itinerary that would take us from watching a traditional Balinese dance to the return of thousands of herons, with much in between.

We headed to Gianyar first thing in the morning to watch a Barong and Kris dance, which tells an ancient Hindu story about the fight between good and evil.
