We stayed one night in this resort, located on Hanoman road, right in the middle of action. Shopping literally on your doorstep, 10/10 for location. We got a cottage for a hundred dollars, but we did feel that it was not worth the money we paid - though it had all the amenities, it didn't have a good decor (dark and dingy comes to the mind) and the biggest minus was that the door had no lock! That was very worrying. The resort itself has Pretty grounds, helpful staff, the room comes with a complimentary filing breakfast - in short, we don't regret staying here, as we did book the room at the last minute.

A walk home in pouring rain did not dampen our spirits and after a wonderful breakfast the next morning we set out to explore Ubud on foot.

Our experience at The sacred Monkey Forest was very enjoyable; you will see the photos but at one stage I had four monkeys climbing all over me but we weren't quick enough for ...
... long the shops, houses and people thinned out and we started walking along a narrow path through the rainforest paralleling a tiny canal with brown water rushing through it. We're pretty sure the little diversion canals you see around town are to supply water to the rice paddies. They seem to flood small flat terraces of land then plant small tufts of rice stalks together row by row. By this point we had been walking for almost 2 hours, and straight north. ...
... we tried to book our shuttle bus for our departure day (being 17th Dec) we were informed that they were not running that day due to a major Balinese festival taking place called Galungan. Not wanting to miss the celebrations we decided to stay an extra night and instead booked our bus for the 18th. Well it wasn't like we had much choice really!
We didn't have a problem ...
... and we spent a lot of the time battling against the water and I managed to cut my knee up on the coral just below the water in a part where it was shallow! Slightly defeated, we gave the boards back and returned to the safety of the swimming pool! The rest of the waves on the island were huge - and not just by my standards! We watched one man get thrown off his boat as it over turned and have to swim out behind the waves to try and get on to the safety of another persons ...
