What a hectic yet peaceful place. Over run by expats that want to be the new Elizabeth Gilbert. The people are still so beautiful and pure. So welcoming even with all of the organic raw yogis.
We got to our beautiful little escape, Tibet Garden. Thank goodness for airbnb.com…..if you want a place for yourself with a group of friends….this website is better than any hostel. You rent out other people’s houses/apartments/rooms for however long you want, like a hotel but more personal.
We got this little villa with plenty of room for 4 about 3 kms away from central Ubud. We had to hire a driver but it was worth being away and in mist of the rice paddies.
cheers and happy traveling.
