Ubud is a tiny green town (almost a village) in the middle of the island. Ubud was a thriving center for medicine. The epicenter for medicinal herbs, alternative medicine (faith healer). Some say that the name “Ubud” stands for old Balinese word “ubad”, meaning medicine.
Spending only a few hours in Ubud is not enough to truly absorb all that it has to offer. Staying for at least a full day or for a night, maybe two. Common places tourist visit in Ubud are the art markets, Monkey forest and the Ubud palace, a good place to watch traditional dance.
