Where to stay?
We stayed at a hotel close to the center of Ubud and not right in the jungle. There are tons of options. From Ubud we went on a tour to the temple.
What is special there?
The temple has its unique traditional architecture. The thin stacked roofs reach out to the sky out of the Bratan lake. The shore around the temple is stocked with beautiful flowers. There are statues of dragons which protect the temple. You can go on a boat trip around the temple for another perspective from the lake. The park next to the Pura Ulun Danu Beratan temple is also worth to stroll through. Trees, flowers and Statues. This spot is really worth a visit.
