A visit to Pak Man feels as if he can read your body with his fingers. Only go to see him if there's something specific you want worked on. All communication is done through his English wife, as he doesn't speak much English. Healing with him involves very deep bodywork and feels like he’s moving muscles and tendons (which can be pretty painful at times). About 20 minutes from Ubud. Rates are around IDR 450k.

Authentic Italian food at budget friendly prices! Pastas are made from scratch, and the coffee is the best in the neighborhood. Their cornetti (Italian for croissants) and bombe (Italian for donuts) are delish, so make sure you save room for one of these. Check out their flagship in Seminyak as well that's next to Zibiru Restaurant with a charming little garden in the back.

One of our all time fave lunch spots in Ubud is this open air restaurant located in the middle of the rice fields. You can't access it by car, but the walk is just a short 7 minute stroll through a beautiful landscape that you'll only experience in Bali. As one of the original pioneers of Bali's health food scene, the restaurant boasts a selection of wholesome nutritious chemical-free Balinese dishes at extremely affordable prices. They even make their own beer! And with a view like their's, it's oh so worth it.

Bingin is a beachfront cliff village that's full of life, with a lot of little bars and restaurants scattered around. The beach is a 5-minute walk down fairly steep paths, so we recommend that you pack lightly. We recommend staying overnight at one of the many charming places in order to fully appreciate the area.

A sunrise climb up Mt Batur is an unforgettable experience. Tour companies will pick you up around 2-3 am from Ubud and take you to the base of the mountain where you’ll meet your guide. The ride takes 45min – 1hr. They’ll give you a “breakfast” (hard-boiled egg, banana + water) to start the 4-5 hour hike up. It’s not strenuous but be prepared for the steep incline. Wear a long sleeve shirt and pants as it's cold in the early morning. Check the weather too, as you may want to bring a rain coat. They also sell ponchos, hot tea and chocolate at the peak. Try to stop at one of the hot springs along the way back.
