Ubud is famous for being the artistic centre of Bali and it’s hard to deny that the local people are artistically gifted in a way that’s rarely seen elsewhere in the world. The town is vibrantly creative: you’ll see evidence of artistry wherever you turn, from the fabulous silver jewellery in the shops, to the intricate carved doorways of homes and temples, to the mossy stone statues and delightful stone mosaics that decorate the town’s laneways. Even your breakfast fruit salad may display impressive carving skills.

Traditionally, art was used in Bali for religious purposes, and artistic practices were passed down from generation to generation. In Ubud these practices are still alive and well. Painting is the most common art form, and you’ll find little art galleries all over town, while silver-smithing, stone- and wood-carving, basket-weaving, batik and other ancient crafts traditions still flourish in Ubud and its neighbouring villages.
