Oh, Ubud. I am not a hater of Eat, Pray, Love but I’m not happy about the way the book’s fanatical following has turned you into a bit of a circus.
If you want to settle yourself into a yoga retreat or villa amidst the rice paddies, this is your spot. If you’re just there to see the Monkey Forest, maybe do a little shopping, then move on, it’s also your spot. Again – something for everyone here.
I liked the monkeys so much I visited them twice in one month. I don’t think they remembered me.
