Things to do in Ubud
- Gunung Kawi –
- Elephant Cave – Washing your face from the the hindu/buddist fountain allegedly gives your soul long life. Watch out for the friendly, informative and hard bargaining holy men. Its a long walk, reasonable bicycle ride or short scooter ride from Ubud.
- Bali Bird Park & Reptile Park – Both parks offer chances to see Comodo dragons. The bird park is run by a European and is very well kept. The reptile park is not so swish, but you do get the chance to hold several big lizards. Both parks are expensive (US$10 each). The parks are opposite each other, about 10kms from Ubud. Rent a scooter or get a taxi.
