Nov 23rd -27th
We embarked on a 4 hour journey to Ubud, the breeze as we rode was lovely but it was still hot and humid, and every bump in the road was felt. We checked into our pre-booked expedia hotel 'Kampung Ubud Hotel and Spa' at £20pn and we booked 2 nights.
Kampung Ubud Hotel and Spa, I even treated myself to a hair treatment at the spa as my hair is rather damaged and brittle at the moment, I don't know if the treatment will do much but it felt lovely to be pampered.
Had an exceptional meal at 'Laughing Buddha' restaurant which is at the top end of Jalan Monkey Forest (opposite end to Monkey Forest).
The Sacred Money Forest Sanctuary is a must do in Ubud, it is famous because there is a small rainforest dwelt by a group of around 200 monkeys and other tropical animals. It costs just 30,000 Rupiah (£2) to look around at the forest, temples and of course the monkeys, of which you can feed with bananas bought on site, then as you'll see below, you can hold the bananas up high and the monkeys will happily jump on you to eat them. Just be aware though, they are over fed and can get fed up with tourists poking bananas at them, one tried to lunge at me!
