A series of several different swings of varying heights, the Bali Swing overlooks a lush palm tree valley and the Ayung River. Here you will be truly immersed in the Balinese jungle. If you don’t wish to partake in a swing ride, consider one of the ‘hanging nests’ that are scattered around the grounds. Wedged between two enormous palm trees, these nest-like structures serve as lookout points for the spectacular views and are perfect for enviable photoshoots. We enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before continuing on to central Ubud. Puri Saren Ubud, the palace of the latest king is a not-to-miss sight that features intricate Balinese design and beautiful grounds. We journey to the nearby Ubud Art Market to see more traditional Balinese crafts, where you can shop for beautiful souvenirs or simply admire the artists’ works.

As we depart from Ubud Center, our last stop of the day is Tegalalang.

Dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of learning, literature and art, the temple is well-hidden in Ubud center and the perfect starting point for our day. We continue on to Gunung Kawi, one of Bali’s most unique archaeological sites. Gunung Kawi Temple is two rows of ancient royal tombs on the banks of the Pakerisan River overlooked by terraced rice fields. The holy Pakerisan River flows through the center of Gunung Kawi cutting the site into two separate sections with a bridge to connect one side to the other. It is believed the holy waters of the Pakerisan sanctify Gunung Kawi and the beauty of the place evokes a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
