Ubud is located in central Bali, just a good hour’s drive away from the airport. Ubud is an artistic town with an array of fine restaurants and art shops, and a popular place for expats to settle down. In Ubud, everywhere you look you'll see the green terraced rice fields, ducks balancing precariously on the rims of the paddies and local farmers being busy planting or harvesting the rice. Ubud is the green, artistic heart of Bali and in the town centre you’ll find lots of small shops with artists selling their works of art or busy working on their latest piece. Local craftsmen are hard at work sculpting Buddha statues or carving wooden masks.
Ubud has a tropical climate with hot, humid conditions. Temperatures are mostly between 30 and 32 °C during the day and nights are still well above 20 °C. The April-October period is the dry season and November-March is the rainy season, though showers are still possible during the dry season and periods of dry weather occur during the monsoon season.
Ubud is just under an hour from Kuta and a short drive away from Denpasar, a world away from the crowded beaches and nightlife. It's advisable to rent a car with driver to visit Ubud and surroundings areas.
Perama Tour has buses between Ubud and Denpasar's Ngurah Rai airport, Sanur, Lovina, Candidasa and Padang Bai.
Most of central Ubud is easily navigated on foot.
To explore the immediate surroudings, a bike or scooter is a good way to get around. Shops, agencies and hotels in central Ubud rent mountain bikes and cost around 20,000Rp per day.

Pos Indonesia provides the postal service in Indonesia. Pos Indonesia is government-owned and offers services ranging from sending letters and packages to money transfers (usually to remote areas which have no bank branch/ATM nearby) and selling postcards and stamps.
It is recommended to send letters from a Pos Indonesia branch, not by putting it inside orange mailbox (called Bis Surat) in the roadside, because some of the mailboxes are in very bad condition and aren't checked regularly by Pos Indonesia. Opening times of post offices usually tend to follow general business hours: Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm (sometimes shorter hours on Fridays), Saturdays from 8:00am to 1:00pm, closed on Sundays. Bigger cities, tourist areas and central post offices tend to keep longer hours, into the evenings.
Sending a postcards, letter or parcel is relatively expensive, but fairly reliable. It takes several days at least to send it within Indonesia, at least a week internationally.
Private postal services based in Indonesia include CV Titipan Kilat (CV TIKI), Jalur Nugraha Ekaputra (JNE), Caraka, and RPX. There are also foreign postal services that have branches in Indonesia, including DHL, TNT, UPS, and FedEx.
