Travel Tips for Ubud

Topeng: mask dances

by Tijavi

Topeng, meaning "pressed against the face" in the local language, is a mask dance where the performers imitate the character represented by the mask. One of the more popular topeng dances is Topeng Tua, a solo dance that features the actions and mannerisms of an old man, such as the one pictured here.

THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK: The man behind the Topeng Tua pictured here is Kade, who is a bemo driver by day. Kade, whose father is a dance master in Ubud, has been dancing for nearly 20 years, and has performed in Russia, USA, and Japan, among many other countries, together with his troupe.

Just like most Balinese, Kade is very warm and friendly (although I didn't speak Bahasa). I had the honor of being invited to his home to meet his family. Meet this master Topeng dancer and his family in one of my Ubud travelogues (The man behind the mask).

Topeng requires a different level of skill as the dancer could not make use of any facial expression to portray the mask character - it has to be through movements, actions, and mannerisms.

Probably, one of the best restaurants in Ubud

by jantichm about Bebek Bengil

Bebek Bengil first opened in 1990. It serve delicious local food. It's not a cheap restaurant but the atmosphere is charming (specially at night when you can see the near rice fields lighted up with torches.

The staff is very friendly and sometimes there's gamelan music.

The restaurant has a curious story. When the restaurant was been building, they thought long and hard about a name. Many good suggestions came from their friends, but none seemed just right.

They wanted a Balinese name that translated well into English.

One tropical monsoon morning, when the restaurant was very close to being finished, a flock of ducks from the rice field across the road ( yes, there were rice fields all around it then ) ran quacking and squawking into the restaurant and across the floor and tables. They left muddy webbed footprints all over the place. They were the first guests. Of course, my favourite dish is the 'bebek goreng' (crispy duck): Crisp fried half duck (breast and leg) served with balinese urapan, steamed rice, prawn crackers and a selection of sambals.

the best Babi Guling

by aussiejen about IBU OKA

I had heard about this restaurant but had never been to it until this latest trip to Ubud (Feb 2008). Our driver had told us it was the most famous babi guling place in Bali, that was good enough for us!
We decided to check out where it was and go back later for a meal....well.....after seeing this large cooked pig being carried down the road on someone's head we couldn't resist! We ended up having an early lunch :)
It is cooked further up the road and brought down to the restaurant for cutting up and serving.
The restaurant itself is a very basic looking place, but the babi guling is fantastic.
The only thing I couldn't bring myself to eat was the blood sausage!!
At only 25,000rp per serve it is very good value.
I will be back for more next time I'm in Ubud.

The Market

by LotusV8

We visited this small market in the center of Ubud and found it a lot cheaper than Kuta. But remember to bargain, fex a fake Breitling watch , from 250000 and finally after bargaining 75000 rupiah - in Kuta from 600000 to 250000, and that is for the same watch! Normally you only pay one third of the price.

Bodyworks Spa

by M0B1US

One of the things you simply must do when you’re in Bali is to pamper yourself in one of the many Balinese spas in Ubud to a massage, manicure or body scrub – or even the whole hog! There are quite a number of these all over town with the main ones being Milano Salon, Tri Nadi Salon, Nur Salon and Bodyworks. The ones mentioned cater to the traditional end of the market, however I did notice others that catered to, shall we say the male half of the market…

We decided to check out Bodyworks as it was near to where we were staying, as well as being one of the most impressive looking and well regarded of the institutes. It is owned by a Mr. Ketut Arsana who is a Mahatma therapist with 20 years of experience in his field. He has combined that knowledge with Western massage techniques to offer a vast array of treatments.

Entering Bodyworks is like entering a tranquil paradise of friendly staff and pleasant surroundings, with the building arranged around a wonderfully relaxing central courtyard with the ambient sound of running water and soft Balinese music. Once in the waiting area it is a short time until you are introduced to your masseur and taken to a private room.

I took the Spice Bath (Mandi Rempah), which was a full body massage, followed by a body exfoliation scrub with an herbal cream and yoghurt rubdown and then a relax and soak in a special spice and flower bath. 1½ hours of pure pleasure!

Afterwards I had my first ever pedicure, which took the ‘girl’ (actually ‘she’ seemed like a transvestite in drag, but oh well… ;-) ) much longer than my girlfriend’s pedicure due to the accumulation of 30+ years…

We left Bodyworks wonderfully refreshed and feeling like new people!
