After 26-kilometres, end the journey at Koko Bambu Restaurant and dig into a well-deserved lunch.

With renewed energy, continue to the next adventure – a thrilling afternoon of white-water rafting. Hop aboard an assigned raft and embark on a wild ten-kilometre ride along the Ayung River.

After breakfast, check out from the hotel and leave Ubud for a taste of the real Bali at secluded Tabanan Regency. Situated towards the western part of the island, this area is one of Bali’s best nature destination thanks to its magnificent emerald green rice terraces, quiet volcanic black sand beaches and authentic cultural scene. Check in at Rumah Desa Homestay and spend an engaging afternoon delving deeper into the local culture; from making Balinese cake to planting new paddies and ploughing the rice fields with cows. After this insightful afternoon, refresh with a well-deserved shower and get ready for an evening of culture, music, and dance followed by a sumptuous dinner.

With a belly full of tasty food and a thorough understanding of Balinese cooking traditions, check out of the hotel and travel to the laid-back Canggu area.  

With plenty of hip cafes, restaurants and bars, spend the first evening touring some of Canggu’s coolest hangouts.
