    3.Witness a bird invasion Petulu

    When the sun sets every day, thousands of herons from all over Bali fly to the village of Petulu, creating a beautiful vision of white for those who are there to witness it.The birds are believed to be the guardians that watch over the villagers and protect them from harm.It’s certainly a sight to behold – during the peak period (around 5pm – 6pm), up to 20,000 herons can be seen roosting in the trees of Petulu, watching the people from above.Best place to watch? To the south of the village, there’s a look-out point ideal for bird watching. Next to the road, you’ll see a sign that reads “the best place to see the herons”.And here’s where it points to – a small wooden house in the middle of a rice-field owned by an old lady selling cold drinks. So at the right time, you can see the flocks of herons arrive.The best part – you just need to sit back and enjoy the whole phenomenon with a drink in hand.
    Location: Jl. Petulu, Petulu, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
    How to get there: Drive through Jalan Tirta Tawar until you see the village sign.

    6.Dive into the infamous waterfall in Tegenungan waterfall

    Among all the dazzlingly refreshing retreats found in Bali, Tegenungan waterfall is one of our absolute favourites. The rich green surroundings and perfectly flowing fresh water will make a pretty sight for all.Situated on a plane landscape and measured at only 15 meters high, some adventurous ones will jump into the waterfall in order to get an experience of a lifetime! (it could be very dangerous though, do not attempt!)And if you want more, there is even a temple nearby for curious visitors, and a bathing spot for you to relax the day away.

    7.Dive (and dine) into Ubud’s very own rabbit hole Maha Restaurant

    As much as we can’t get enough of cat and dog cafes, how about a rabbit cafe for a change? Dining at Maha Restaurant will leave you feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland – bringing you up close and personal with the cutest bunnies you will ever see.Especially if you have kids who are tired of walking around Ubud, bringing them to Maha Restaurant will be a great refresher for them, as they get to pet the bunnies and interact with them.Order coffee, pancakes, crepes, juices, or even an espresso martini (we hear they have fantastic cocktails!) and get set for one of the many lovely afternoons to be had in Ubud.Watch the Maha rabbits hop around, do bunny binkies (google it) and nibble away as you steal a restful moment from your packed itinerary of plans – your kids will thank you for it.

    8.Dine with a luscious view of paddy fields Sari Organik and Cafe Pomegranate

    Rice is a staple part of Indonesian diets so you can’t miss the opportunity to see where it comes from.You don’t need any Instagram filters for these photos – the lush emerald fields are the brightest green that you will ever see.There are so many great restaurants with rice field views but our favourites are Sari Organik and Cafe Pomegranate, which are both in Ubud.Sari Organik is a fast growing warung owned by a family who are dedicated to growing, using and selling organic produce. A 15-minute walk from the road through the coconut groves and along the rice fields means that by the time you arrive at the restaurant, you are ready for a hearty meal.Grab a table on the terrace and watch the spectacular greenery around you. If you are lucky, you will even see people at work in the fields – this is Bali at its most authentic.Sari Organik prides itself on catering for everyone. Meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans will each find plenty on the menu. Dairy or gluten intolerance? No problem, just let the friendly staff know.Try the dairy-free pizza, it’s fresh, healthy and supremely delicious! Even cheese lovers will be converted.Another option, Cafe Pomegranate, is an equally great open-sided restaurant owned by two Japanese brothers. One has taken control of the architecture and design, whilst the other arranged the menu and service. We’ve got to say, both have done amazing jobs!The restaurant is essentially a billowing fabric pagoda on a raised terrace off the beaten track in Ubud. Panoramic 360-degree views of the paddy fields will overwhelm your senses as you relax in the breeze and take in the view.The vibe of Cafe Pomegranate is funky and chilled – once the sun sets, the music starts and a great night of food and fun begins.Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic meal or a group looking for a party, Cafe Pomegranate is perfect for any occasion.
