Bali-Ubud Culture Delight
Ubud is described as 'heaven on earth' by Julia Roberts. The natural scenery of Ubud rice field is well known. It is the arts and cultural center of Bali where you can find spiritual balance; villa style resorts nestle on the hillside of lush juggle overseeing Ayung River, providing a romantic setting, health and wellness retreat such as yoga and meditation. Ubud is also a great place for souvenir shopping and dining. You can have excellent casual dining experience with local specialty cafes, international fine dining with Balinese touch, or healing cuisine with living organic foods. Balinese cooking class, yoga, cycling, elephant ride, water rafting, and private trekking to view cultural rice field landscape awarded as UNESCO world heritage site, are some of the activities which we can arrange for you.

One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Borneo was being greeted by the orangutans in the wild jungle. Well-organized by DOYANTravel, our journey was led by an excellent and knowledgeable local guide.
