... of festival in progress which involved lots of food being piled on tables and many people wearing brightly-coloured sashes. Eventually we found ourselves following a coach up the steep, winding road into Bedugul, and emerged by the crater lake which is home to the temple.
The water temple itself was a small building on a jetty on the edge of the lake. As we'd found with many of the temples in Indonesia (and across much ...
... the other volunteers had finished at 6.30pm, we had agreed to meet outside the homestay to go for dinner. We went to Warung Schnitzel and the food was absolutely fantastic. They do Balinese style tapas (which is a bit confusing given the name of the place).

We had not retreated there however, Ubud was to be the base for our rice paddy cycle tour and our 3am ascent of Mount Batur, one off Bali’s ...
... wir auf eigene Faust erklimmen. Leichter gesagt als getan. Nur mit Trekking Guide und gegen Bares wird einem hier der Aufstieg gewährt.

TravelPod Member ReviewsGaya Villas Ubud
20 minutes from the chaos of Ubud Center, Gaya VIllas offers beautiful accommodations, THE most wonderful staff a hotel could ask for, amazing food from their open air restaurant, a lobby that serves as a gallery for inspiring artists, and....a gelato shop, made daily on premise.
