Arma Resort, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Ubud is our choice of towns when we stay in Bali. On our visit to Arma Resort & Museum we spent time wandering through the grounds of this resort. There is a stream that runs through the resort, supplying water to the padi fields, large rainforest trees shade the fish ponds and there is a privately owned museum in the resort’s grounds.

To the northwest of Ubud are these sculptured rice terraces. In recent years the locals have built cafés near the roadside overlooking these magnificent padi fields, so one can stop on their way to Danau Batur and enjoy a coffee while admiring these terraces.

Pura Luhur Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia

We took our friends to visit the Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple at sunset. This temple is perched on a headland at the westernmost tip of the peninsular. On the way back to the carpark I noticed this female macque going through some offerings looking for an easy meal.
