Ubud is Bali’s cultural and arts center and it’s perfect if you want to enjoy quiet time away from the busier beaches. It boasts of several venues that offer nightly shows of various traditional Balinese performances, and most of the venues are kid friendly and set in relaxing outdoor environments.
A visit to the nearby Monkey Forest Sanctuary will provide the kids with great excitement as they get to feed the monkeys with bananas.
