Bali Day One: Ubud

Cebu Pacific direct flights from Manila to Denpasar are scheduled only two times a week: Tuesdays and Saturdays.  F and I arrived on a damp Tuesday morning. A driver was arranged to pick us up from the airport and to bring us to Ubud, a town in the central part of Bali known for its temples and arts and crafts. Before that though, we decided we wanted to check our bags in the Dragon Pyramid where we were going to stay, and to finally meet Sally & Boi, our hosts.  We only met Sally that day, Boi was out giving surfing lessons and was off to a village wedding with other renters that day.  Sally was lovely and kind and laidback; the other renters we met that morning were lovely as well.

Some photos from my phonecam.
The Dragon Pyramid has 5 available rooms. To book rooms, please do so here

 45 minutes to an hour away from Kerobokan is Ubud. Ubud is lined with temples (as most areas in Bali are), artisan showrooms, boutiques, and cafes. My friend S once told me shopping in Bali is underrated and I agree. It is a tourist-y area though, so haggle with all your might.

F & I scheduled a silversmith class at Studio Perak.

Studio Perak is located at  JI. Hanoman, Ubud 80571, Gianyar, Bali. To schedule a class contact Ketut Darmawan via Handphone +62 81 236 51809 or Studio +62 361 974244 or email them at

We had early dinner at Cafe Lotus by the Lotus Pond Temple. It's a funny thing, that beside this very scene, a Starbucks branch sits.
Cafe Lotus is located at Jalan Raya Ubud, Ubud Kaja, Ubud, Bali.
