What to do in Ubud

Its almost 2 months that we had to leave Bali, for 30 days we had a wonderful small apartment close in the middle of the rice fields. 

For me (Iris) I was a bit scared to go on the plane for so long, I don’t know why the fear came up after our travel in Ibiza, I become very scared of taking a plane. It’s not really practiced when you travel so much.

But after the 24-hour flight, we finally arrive at our new home. It was so special to saw palm trees in the center of an airport, and wow it was hot!

Work spots

Unfortunately, it was not only traveling, but we needed to work also. Not that it was a punishment to work with all does nice work spots around us! In Ubud, you have a lot of go workings space, for us why too expensive (around 50 euros per person). We have been to one that offers a free try-out day, but the Wi-Fi was so bad we needed to leave. Here we have some of our favorite places to work in Ubud.

Coffee & Thyme

Here we have eaten the most delicious vegan chocolate brownie ever! We have work here 2 full days, breakfast lunch and dinner (okay and one of their delicious vegan cakes) for around 30 euros.

Folk pool & garden

A secret place in the center of Ubud, I love the way they have built the city of Ubud with all the little streets with a beautiful view over rice field or a secret swimming pool. One of them is Folk pool & garden, we had a nice work spot in the shadow next to the pool. We have chill more than work, hahaha.

Here the price was more expensive, to get into the pool you need to pay around 10 euro per person.


Ubud has a lot, but I mean a lot of restaurants, but most of them you can find on one of the main streets of Ubud. Does are special for tourist people and the food are not so good. We have looked most of the time on another blog where is been nice to eat in nature.

These are our favorite spots to eat.

Warung Gula Bali the Joglo

Warung means that all the ingredients are made with the passion of an old recipe. This restaurant was our favorite, we have eaten here maybe six times. It was very closed to our Airbnb so after a workday we had a nice walk in the rice fields, and after we had a good meal for around 3 euros per person.

Mama Mia

It may be a tourist attraction and not a typical Balinese restaurant, but we have eaten one of the tastiest pizzas ever. When you drive past it, you can smell all the delicious pizza smells, which come from the open kitchen. A pizza is around 7 euros.

Before our working day we often went for a walk at sunrise. Then it was quiet, and we could enjoy the nature that awoke. Our favorite route was Campuhan Ridge walk.

For everyone who has planned to go to Bali, Ubud is definitely recommended, for a longer period or shorter. Rent a scooter is recommended (short and long-term stay), so you can easily explore the surroundings of Ubud, because it is definitely worth a day of touring.
