Ubud in Gianyar regency, Bali, is recognized as the island’s cultural center. Surrounded by rain forest, the peaceful area was among the world’s top 15 cities, according to a survey released by United States-based travel magazine Travel+Leisure.

Despite its popularity, first-time visitors may have a hard time reaching Ubud, as it is located a 1.5-hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Kura Kura Bus is a public shuttle bus service available at several pick-up points in Bali.

The pick-up point for the Ubud route is located at T Galleria by DFS on Jl. By Pass Ngurah Rai.

Available five times a day, the one-way ticket is priced at Rp 80,000 (US$5.92). Meanwhile, the return ticket is priced at Rp 120,000 and can be used within one week of the departure date.

Trans Sarbagita

Those traveling on a shoestring budget may want to consider the Trans Sarbagita bus service.

By paying Rp 3,500, passengers can board a bus from Central Parkir Kuta to Batubulan bus terminal. Passengers will then need to continue by bemo (three-wheeled public transportation van) to Ubud, which is priced at Rp 5,000. (jes/kes)
