For visitors to Bali one of the most varied areas in culture, arts and antiquities is Central Bali. The area not only encompasses the vibrant ‘art colony’ of Ubud and its surrounding areas, it is an area rich in all the traveller would want to see and experience on their visit to the island.
Central Bali is a mountainous area and mostly popular for its art, culture, temples and lakes.
