Rented a car with driver, heading towards Ubud. Unlike Kuta where all the signs are in english, this is the more traditional and cultural part of Bali. Fine arts (paintings, woodcarving, ) traditional dance, temples and (balinese Hindu) religious tradition.

We couldnt decide between Bebek Bengil (crispy fried duck south Ubud) or the famous suckling pig Ibu Oka. Ended up choosing the all-in-one rice with the very tender and oh-so-delicious pork meat, its crackling skin and vegetables (we skipped the intestine and  blood) - I dont consider myself pork-eater but the long queue and crowded small space, is all worth it!

We chose the take-away Bebek Bengil for afternoon tea - also all-in-one rice with crispy fried duck (even the bones so crispy like crackers) and veggies. Again, the long queue and so-difficult-if-not-impossible-to find-parking, is worth it.

Monkey Forest (and had one pack of lolllies involuntarily surrendered to the monkeys. Gosh, a few meters away and they could hear the plastic packaging being opened! In a matter of seconds they came approaching, hanging on to it, insisting that we gave in... ). Drove past small villages and rice fields ("sawah").

Head to Uluwatu for the famous temple and Kecak Dance performance. Impressive open air stage, with the cliff and the temple as the backdrop.

Nasi goreng (fried rice), young coconut and martabak (traditional pancake) for dinner.
