Ubud
A small town located in Bali's interior, it's no wonder that Ubud has become a major hotspot for remote workers over the years. Surrounded by lush green jungle and rice paddies, and with beautiful Hindu temples on every street and lane, this friendly, laid-back destination is also remarkably affordable for the lifestyle it offers. With a focus on healthy living and sustainability, there are endless shops selling an abundance of hand-made, locally-produced items and dozens of restaurants serving up excellent, high-quality food made from fresh, local ingredients. Bali's beaches are only 45 minutes away and many consider Ubud to be Bali's true paradise destination.
