Celuk Village, situated close to Ubud in the Gianyar Regency, is renowned for its gold and silver handicrafts sold at affordable rates. Historically, its inhabitants were primarily farmers, but the village witnessed a shift in its main profession when three families from the Pande caste began producing silver crafts. With the rising demand for these crafts, many villagers embraced this skill. A visit to Celuk offers a chance to explore silver craft creation processes and admire the finished products showcased in local galleries.
Positioned in the center of Ubud Village, Ubud Monkey Forest serves as a refuge for a variety of monkeys and tropical animals. Officially known as the Padangtegal Mandala Wisata Wanara Wana Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, this green space plays a critical role in preserving monkey habitats in Bali. The Balinese community is also instrumental in conserving this forest, ensuring all its inhabitants coexist harmoniously. A trip here offers visitors an opportunity to witness untouched natural beauty and interact with the playful residents.
A significant highlight of any Ubud tour is the Ubud Royal Palace, which once served as the residence for the king of Ubud. Established by Ida Tjokorda Putu Kandel between 1800 and 1823, the palace stands as a cultural and artistic epicenter in the region. Adjacently located is a traditional market, symbolizing the local economic activities. The palace's structural beauty and historical significance, coupled with the nearby Wantilan/auditorium and a protective banyan tree, make it a must-visit site for those keen on exploring Balinese heritage.
Nestled in the heart of Ubud town, the Ubud Art Market offers a plethora of artistic goods, each reflecting the essence of Balinese culture. The market, closely linked with the nearby Ubud Empire or Puri Saren, is split into two distinct sections. One part focuses on traditional artistic trades, while the other caters to daily essential commodities. For visitors, the Ubud Art Market serves as a perfect spot to purchase quality art pieces at reasonable prices, making it a favorite stop during the Ubud tour.
