A traditional Balinese meal will first energize you for a trek through the jungle, passing ornate temples into the green steeped hills of the Ubud town. Both trendy and traditional galleries will be visited, showcasing a variety of fine weavings, wooden statues, and primitive arts.
Naturally, your guide will compel artists for the stories behind their works-as there always is one. Then, the charming villages of Mas, Celuk, and Batubulan will display their age old facilities, where skillful jewelry pieces are handmade and wooden statues are still hand-carved. Many items (not commissioned) are for sale should something capture your fancy.
