... back to have another look at Ubud. I still wanted to see the Royal Palace in the middle of town where the royal family actually lived but it would have been 2 hours wasted in traffic. We headed straight for Kuta. As we still hadn't booked anywhere to stay, I spent the drive looking at hotels in the area. I eventually booked and paid for our hotel online,within about half an hour of us arriving there. When we turned up, our booking had yet to show up ...

By the time I got there I was dripping with sweat and needing a shower. My first impressions of Ubud were just as the books and web describe it funky, quirky, slightly alternative, chilled, relaxed and hip. A lot less busier than the bustling Kuta, and less ...
