Traditional Ubud Village Tours
MHT 4 – Ubud Village Tours
It is when every piece and bit of ancient artwork, cultural routines, and sacred locations retains intact meanings along with indispensable importance. Loose primordial macaques at Ubud Monkey Forest, for instance, have been imbued with a seemingly ridiculous belief such as they are guarding four dainty temples dwelling inside the vast wild park. Things find their essential plausibility nevertheless, once you uncover the territory joined with a native Balinese expert who inevitably loves his own beloved land. Let the unique locale beliefs tune your foreign mindset in during this Ubud Tour. And soon, in enigmatic way, you will discover palpable Ubud love: draping on the traditional clothing, polishing everlasting sanctuary masterpieces, and emanating through the indigenous smile and warmth. Ubud is as nice and easy as a utopia on earth can be.
The prime spot to spoil oneself up to the limit is Ubud art-market. Stretching from Peliatan to Pujung Street, an array of art shops irresistibly enamor relaxed saunters with exotic crafts and curios. Various items ranging from hip bags, garish accessories, idol statuettes, to colorful door mats are stacked comfortably on shelves for your leisure picking on Sunday afternoon. A recommended shopping list features Ubud slippers, elaborated in floral-pattern embroidery, as must-have footwear. Although some price tags are reasonable, few fine arts, particularly paintings, are definitely worth to haggle for. Opening from early morning to late evening, Ubud traditional market exudes delightful art-shopping experience. A stone’s throw away from the market lies Puri Saren, the latest Ubud King’s homey residence. It covers a number of puris (residences) decorated in Balinese humble designs, which also surround a wantilan (auditorium) where public dances often take place. Ubud Tour includes a visit to Mas Village reveals wiser chiseled figures on wood. Beyond the simple life gesture, Mas sculptors master world-class dexterity on statue-making which excels internationally such Ida Bagus Tilem’s masterpieces. But for mellow local taste of art, it is not an overstatement that Batuan Village reproduces the very best. The growing settlement of Brahman castes has often remained dwindling on two different roads throughout the adulthood; one devotes on religious tasks and the other follows their heart and transforms stones into beauty.
As the village name refers literally to stone (Batu), the art maestros here scribe legendary characters on craggy surface, including creepy spooks, evil witches, and daunting monsters. Each, conceivably, has their story to tell as well, giving you a hint on how the inspiration comes to reality.
