The Neka Art Museum lies right off a busy street, but once we entered it felt like we were transported to a serene place. Surprisingly, there were hardly any visitors on the afternoon in which we visited, even though the town of Ubud was bustling...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The pavilions are attractive and spread through some lovely gardens. It was very quiet and peaceful on the morning we went. The art was very interesting - I particularly enjoyed the Balinese art in the first pavilion, especially the Batuan...More

I spent several hours wandering the galleries here. There are several pavilions with well curated exhibitions. The gardens are beautiful and so were the ducks. Lovely place.

This museum was very easy to visit due to the small texts beside the paintings. I can really recommend this place if the sun is hot or on a rainy day. Don't miss the fifth hall of contemporary paintings from other ethnic groups in Indonesia....More

This museum/art collection is definitely worth a visit if you are in Ubud for a few days - the paintings in the first villa and the photos from 1939 in one of the other villas are particularly good.

I think it is Rp75,000 per person. If you stay at Villa Sanggingan just down the street which is owned By Pak Neka, you qualify for free entry.

I think you'll find that almost all of Arie Smit's paintings are in Neka Museum. For many of Arie's final years he was tended to by Neka and during the last decade or so of his rich life, Arie lived in Villa Sanggingan... More

Help with 1 day itinerary (3 Replies)
Hello everyone! This September, I'll be in Bali over the weekend to attend my friend's wedding and leave on Monday afternoon which only gives me about a day to do some sightseeing. Also I am not really a beach person (think photo dermatitis) so I decided on an overnight stay in Ubud before heading back to Denpasar. My friend and I would be leaving Nusa Dua (wedding venue) in the morning for Ubud and hope that someone could help me with the flow of our trip. I do have to consider that my...More

Dear Heyjayel, To visit all that places, It will take 9-10 hours. But you have to start early, at 8.30 or 9 a.m will be perfect. To see the first place is depending of which hotel do you will staying in Ubud. Lunch are available at Ubud and Tegalalang ( rice terrace). Other recommend place are : Ubud traditional art market, Ubud Palace, Monkey forest, Bali Zoo, Agro tourism (civet coffee / some coffee and tea are free to taste). All recommend places are near Ubud. Happy holiday. ...More

Carlo: I don't really think your idea of a first day in Bali is such a great one for several reasons. One, you will be just arriving at the airport and getting used to Bali and the language, currency, and what prices are for goods here in Bali. Secondly, the type of itinerary you have mentioned is what tour groups usually get taken to so that the travel agents get large commissions on shoppping. If you want to do this type of shopping, then fine, but perhaps do it another day. You will find a...More

My best suggestion is that you divide your trip into two different locations. Your beach location (Seminyak which you have already decided upon) and then Ubud for your trips and sightseeing. Most of the places you have decided to see are much closer from Ubud, and you will be spending extra time in traffic every time you want to sightsee..about 1 or 1.5 hours each way, or 3 hours a day total just in extra driving time. Example, Kintamani is just one hour from Ubud, about 2 or more hours from...More
