Ubud takes its name from the Balinese word for medicine – ubad – and a stay here is certainly what the doctor ordered. Things to do in Ubud run the gamut from exploring the region’s emerald rice paddies, forests and farms, which showcase Mother Nature at her most fertile, to checking out its cultural scene (galleries, art markets, exhibitions and more), which are equally fruitful. Ubud will woo your eyes, heart and soul; no wonder Elizabeth Gilbert riffed on it so lovingly in her bestselling memoir, ‘Eat, Pray, Love’.
