Where's the most beautiful place you've ever woken up?
For me, there have been a few favourites -- a camp bed in the Indian desert, a tent in the Peruvian mountains and a boat cabin on the Norwegian seas -- but after my recent travels in Bali, there's a new contender.
Waking at 5am to a soft golden glow filtering through the long white curtains; stepping outside into orange light which fell in slim shards against the rice paddy waters; looking far out into the distance where green palm tree fronds criss-crossed their own repeated reflections... There's no doubt: this little @airbnb guesthouse is one of the most unique and stunning places I've ever slept.
I've written all about the rice terraces of Bali on Flora the Explorer today, so if you'd like to read about the rural beauty of farm life on this island just click the link in my bio. And let me know if you've woken up somewhere better than this, because I'm starting to think it's a great way to cherry-pick travel destinations..! 🛏️

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
What’s your favourite things to buy in this local market?
The Ubud Art Market, locally referred to as 'Pasar Seni Ubud' is located opposite the the Puri Saren Royal Ubud Palace and is open daily. Here you can find beautiful silk scarves, lightweight shirts, handmade woven bags, baskets or hats; statues, kites and many other hand-crafted goods. Most of the goods found at the Ubud Market are made in the neighbouring villages of Pengosekan, Tegallalang, Payangan and Peliatan. The location of the Ubud Art Market which is centred among the art producing villages, and being just opposite the royal palace which is a centre point to Ubud itself, make it a strategic shopping place for Balinese handicrafts and souvenirs.
