Bali is easy to explore from Seminyak

The traffic in Bali can be a little chaotic. In saying that, hiring a car and driver in Seminyak is easy and inexpensive. There are plenty of drivers willing and able to take your family on a road trip around the island. The question is, where do you go?


While coastal villas around the Seminyak region are better to base yourselves, a day road trip out to Ubud is simply a must.

Around 1.5hour drive from the coast and you will hit the stunning inner-island region of Ubud; home to beautiful rainforests and picture-postcard rice paddies. Ubud is often referred to as the cultural and artistic heart of Bali. Explore the art markets or stop by any number of boutique stores found throughout the town to immerse yourselves in Bali’s traditional crafts.

Take your animal-loving kids to the Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest and meet the Balinese long tailed monkeys in their natural habitat. Visit the Bali Bird Park, home to the largest collection of Indonesian birds in the world. Alternatively, stop by the Elephant Safari Park Lodge where you will get up close and even hand-feed Bali’s very own herd of Sumatran elephants.

You can’t leave Ubud without frequenting one of the town’s many cafés and restaurants. Some of the island’s best family-friendly restaurants can be found in Ubud and there are plenty of food choices for even the fussiest of little eaters.
