Ubud, Part II

The Payogan, Ubud
The Payogan, Ubud

Ubud es una maravilla. Situada en el interior de Bali, esa pequeña ciudad rodeada de campos de arroz marcará mi vida para siempre, os lo aseguro. No os voy a engañar: la afluencia turística ha convertido las principales calles de la ciudad en riadas de tiendas de todo tipo, restaurantes ideales destinados al turista Occidental, y os encontraréis con muchísima gente visitando con mapas y cámaras de fotos el lugar, pero Ubud mantiene magia y algo muy especial. Salirse un poco de ese centro merece la pena.Solo basta con caminar un rato y perderse para reconectar con la verdadera vida indonesia de una ciudad llena de energia, pero tambien de paz y lugares tranquilos para meditar.
En cuanto a alojamiento, la oferta es tan numerosa que uno se pierde eligiendo: villas privadas, guesthouses, hoteles y hostales…¡Hay de todo!Muchos alojamientos increíbles se sitúan a las afueras de la ciudad, pero todos ofrecen transfer gratuitos al centro, y merece la pena regalarse noches de descanso en algún lugar rodeado de selva y tranquilidad. Uno de ellos,’The Payogan’ fue mi elección y un hotel que os recomiendo sin dudar. Inmenso, constituido de villas privadas y con unos paisajes que te quitan el habla, el resort es de esos sitios que te impiden querer volver a casa.
Mi segunda estancia en Ubud fue más larga, y por eso me hospedé en otro lugar ideal que os comentaré en el siguiente post, al igual que una de las aventuras más impresionantes de mi vida: la ascensión del volcán Batur.

Ubud is simply amazing. Located in the heart of Bali, this small town, which is surrounded by rice fields is a place I will never forget.I’m not going to lie: the tourist influx has turned the main streets of the city into successions of shops of all kinds, little restaurants for Western tourists, and it’s full  of people from all around the world who are visiting the town with maps and cameras, but Ubud keeps its magic and something very special.Plus, going out of the center and walking a little bit around it and in the external streets is the best thing to do there. Just a few hundred meters from the center are enough to reconnect with the real Indonesian life, full of energy, but also peace and quiet places to meditate.As far as accommodation is concern, the offer is so large that you get lost choosing your place: private villas, guesthouses, hotels … the offer is endless!
Many incredible accommodations are located just outside the city, but they all offer free transfer to the center, and treating yourself with a few nights somewhere quiet and surrounded by jungle and tranquility is just amazing. One of that peacefull place, ‘The Payogan‘, was my choice and a hotel that I recommend without hesitation.
Immense, consisting on private villas and breathtaking landscapes , the resort is one of those sites that you will remember forever. My second stay in Ubud was longer than the first one, so I stayed at another ideal place that I’ll talk about later, as one of the most amazing adventures of my life: the ascent of the Batur volcano.
