Ubud Tourist Information
Set up in the seventies as Bina Wisata Tourism Services, UTI is a boon to travelers coming to Ubud. A bulletin board lists performances and local ceremonies and tours to see all the sites a can be arranged as well as a cremation if one is occurring. You can book chauffer-driven cars here as well as a number of activities, ranging from rafting to mountain climbing. Prices are competitive. The staff, who are not always on full alert, will answer questions you have. Conveniently located at the Ubud crossroads.
Wow! It was great to find a small tour shop in Jalan Raya Ubud called Sunny Day Tours.
An Indonesian guy and a foreign woman. Together they made buying tours easy. They were so friendly and totally honest. Best in Ubud.
I'm so glad I went to the Ubud Tourist Information Center when I arrived in Ubud. The staff was very helpful and I met a wonderful driver there. You can ask for "Gusti with the long hair" at the Tourist Information Center or call Gusti at 081 999 333 863.
This is an overall review for Ubud, not for the Ubud Tourist Information center (which was less than enthusiastic). Ubud was the best part of our trip to Bali. The downtown (two main parallel streets) of Ubud have several cheap to mid-range hotels. There are a number of temples and the Monkey Forest Sanctuary within walking distance. Ubud is the place to see Balinese dance. You can catch nightly performances here 7 days a week. They usually start at 6 - 7 p.m. (difficult for photography unless you blast them with your flash or can otherwise deal with the low light). There are loads of things to buy there (the Balinese are excellent craftsmen, especially wood items like masks and animal figures). In Bali, you bargain for everything. Let them offer a price and then start at 1/5 or 1/4 of that.
Ubud is great if you can tune out the incessant call of "Taxi, transport, Boss?" There are only three or four main streets there, and every 20 or thirty steps you take there you will be asked if you need a taxi or transport (hire a driver). It was the same in Kuta. You can just totally ignore them. I usually just responded with the Buddhist gesture of hands in prayer. Most Balinese are not Buddhist (neither am I), but it is recognized throughout Asia as a polite gesture.
UBUD, the market place is a great place to start and get a feel for the price. Bargain, Bargain, most likely will get it for 60-70% less. Best places: Temple in the center of town, Lotus Resturant just up from the Temple, a great place to eat and the view is exotic. Places to stop:Have a drink at Ary's Warung, almost across from the Lotus (have to see the restrooms, its worth a stop, believe me.Many of the shops along the main road are worth stopping in.
