Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali

After Nusa Lembongan our next stop was Ubud which is considered the cultural capital of Bali. It is as well around Ubud that you can see some amazing rice fields! and yes... those are the ones that show in the Eat, Play, Love movie.

So... what did we do in Ubud!

When arriving to any place the first mission is to find a budget place, in Bali that is a room between 15 to 35 euros. After a longggg search we were able to find a pretty amazing place! right next to the rice fields :)

and it had a bonus, a really nice pool!!!

The second mission try the famous suckling pig as seen in the Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations show!

the place is pretty different from what we saw in No Reservations, the restaurant is now huge!! but the way of making this delicacy is still the same. It takes 5 hours to be ready!

the verdict is! that the pork is pretty good with the spices... but we in Portugal do as well an amazing pig! It is indeed good but not out of this world.

While in Ubud we saw as well a traditional Balinese dance The Kecak ,in which around 60 man did the music with their voices, there was no instruments used at all.. pretty impressive!

The last act is pretty impressive.... a performer jumps around flames :SS

more to come on Ubud! :)
