About Ubud

We landed in Ubud in the morning where we had our stay pre-booked at an airbnb in a village called Sayan of the Gianyar district. I would advice anyone going for a short duration to pre-book the stay, it becomes comfortable from thereon. On the way to our stay, we went to taste the Luwak Coffee at a Coffee plantation. It is made of Luwak's poop and is very expensive (expensive sh*t, literally :P). It is so good in taste that if you are visiting Bali, this should be on your high priority. Our stay was lovely, as usual airbnb never disappoints. After settling down our luggage, followed by a welcome drink, we decided to explore the near about right away. Our location was a bit remote, very noncommercial just as one would expect a village to be. All around you could see the rice paddy fields with thin trails to walk.To refresh ourselves and charge up for the coming day we decided to hit a Balinese spa followed by a little walk and photographs of the local scenes. I could feel the butterflies already. Why? well the reason is very overwhelming. It's the people of Bali. They are so happy go lucky always. They greet strangers with a smile and a gentle nod, something which is deeply missing in our metropolitan. Their gesture makes you feel at home and what better than a lovely smile to make the day haan? They are very traditional too. All over Bali you are going to find lot of temples with unusual and peculiar architecture. Hence proved Bali people are religious. I being an Indian can relate more since my connection with this place goes back to a long time. I could sense the Indian religious touch over here and don't be surprised if you find Indians as natives in Bali.Few Important Points:All Balinese people are named one of just 4 names: Wayan, Made, Nyoman or Ketut.You have to buy water everywhere.People usually don't speak English .Try not to step on these holy offerings.You can purchase Coffee(I loved Vanilla Coffee), Tea, coconut sugar, decor items, essential oils and soaps here.Bargain,Bargain and Bargain...Walking down though the thin trials we reached the market area of Gianyar where we had our lunch at a place called Clear Cafe. We ordered burgers, lasagna and a dish called Hint of India (Yummm!). From here on my first day was mostly a market strawl. Bali is heaven for local shopping specially Bohemian decor items, handicrafts and articrafts like paintings, handbags (believe you me, the round ones are irresistible).One last thing, The DOGS in Bali. They are surprisingly well maintained. How about if I tell you that you could find posh high quality breeds of dogs in Bali as stray dogs? Yes, that is TRUE!. I am an animal lover and already have Jhonny(my four legged friend) back in my home in India so for me this observation had to find a mention. Well that's how the first day at Bali came to an end. I could not wait to see what the next day had in surprise.Don't forget to eat Tukies coconut ice-cream because its delicious..and this shop is unique its own way.Clear Cafe: 200k IDR for two people
