  • 2. Bali by Philip Hanson Hiss

    Read before you go. Though written in 1941, this is an insightful book which will give you a thorough background on the Balinese: their religion, architecture, dance, arts and societal structure. Thoroughly readable, with great pictures.

  • 3. Ubud Palace Dances

    Held most nights, rotating group of dances like the Legong, Barong and other stories in a temple gateway setting.

  • 4. The Agung Rai Museum in Ubud
    http://www.armamuseum.com/

    A wonderful introduction to all styles of Balinese art, historic and modern. Also happened on a Balinese dance class for children. Great bookshop and gift store.

  • 5. Ary's Warung in Ubud

    Great restaurant/bar on the main street in Ubud. Has to have some of the best bathrooms -- where else can you get a koi pond? Excellent service, very interesting tasting menu. Lounging sofas on the first floor where you can rest your feet, have a drink and watch the world go by.

  • 6. Threads of Life - Ubud
    http://www.threadsoflife.com

    Half store, half museum, Threads supports indigenous weaving in Bali and elsewhere.

  • 7. Jenggala Ceramics
    http://www.jenggala-bali.com/

    We bought a dinner service for 4 (pretty special guests, yes?) Beautiful colors, great unique shapes.

  • 8. Uluwatu Hand Made Lace
    http://www.uluwatu.co.id/

    With shops around Bali, if you didn't pack enough tropical white, this is a great shop to visit. Pants, dresses, camis, skirts, all edged in hand made lace at great prices. Also some truly beautiful silk sarongs.

  • 9. Treasures -- a jewelry store in Ubud
    http://www.dekco.com/treasure/home.asp

    Very high end one of a kind 22k gold collectors jewelry with precious stones -- just in case you're not in the mood for silver.

  • 10. Ku de Ta -- Lounge music beach club restaurant in Seminyak
    http://www.kudeta.net/

    Gorgeous beach front setting, great music, wonderful fusion food.
