"It's no wonder that Ubud is the cultural center of Bali. After all, it is here, in the heart of Bali, that you can find numerous attractions. The artist's town has preserved much more Balinese culture than other places in Bali, making it unique.
Of course, everyone has heard of the Monkey Forest, but there are plenty of other activities to keep children entertained during a trip to Ubud. We've compiled 12 fun activities that you can offer to children in this magical town."
1. Go to the Bali Bird Walk
The Bali Bird Walk was founded in 1990 by ornithologist Victor Mason, but not just as a park, with an emphasis on providing knowledge. Today, 10 percent of the income from park walks goes to bird conservation efforts. Bali Bird Walk is home to more than 100 different bird species.
The tours are conducted in small groups of up to 20 people, so advance reservations are necessary.
Tours are available every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
