Ubud is simply the most charming city of Bali. It is a gem to explore whatever your interests are. It has the famous monkey forest, the small little streets with boutiques, bars and cooking classes. It has the pasar/market for whatever you want to buy and the temples and rice fields are just around the corner. Remember though that if there is ever any furniture or art that you are looking for Ubud is the place to shop! From the port it is a 35 km / 1 hrs 15 min drive to the north.
