You will think creatively in Bali

Ubud is a small town on the Indonesian island of Bali. “Eat, Pray, Love” was filmed in 2010 in this town. IMDb explains this movie;

A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to find herself

Although I did not have to find myself, I needed to take a break from the rat race. One day at this town perfectly recharge myself. People are friendly, food was delicious (Babi Guling at Ibu Oka), and guest houses with free wifi and hot water are cheap. I found many non-local, mostly European tourists spend time on reading/writing books at cafes and restaurants with rice field views (yes, rice fields can be scenic!). This town even has a co-working space called Hubud for those who want to start their own businesses. To me, Ubud is a cleaner/healthier version of Bangkok, a must visit place in the world. 🙂
