Aimed at culture vultures wanting a break from a beach bum holiday, first stop is a traditional, if slightly bizarre, Barong Dance performance. The colorful costumes, talented dancers and quirky actors will surely start your day with a smile. Browse the delicate gold and silver handcrafted jewelry at Celuk village before seeing impressive wood carpentry in action at Mas. You'll meet the artisans for a better understanding of the creative process. The journey continues to Kintamani for a local lunch facing the majestic cone of Batur Volcano and its vast crater lake. Visit Tirta Empul Temple famed for its cleansing holy springs before arriving at Gunung Kawi Royal Monument with its impressive valley views, royal tombs and hermitage caves. End the day with the most spectacular of Bali's iconic rice terrace views near Tegalalang. If you want to purchase a Balinese art piece as a memento of your day of culture, stops can be made along the way at Ubud's many galleries.
