Traveling from Uluwatu to Ubud, there are many incredible cultural stops to make along the way. It's best to hire a driver/guide who knows the places and see everything in one day. Different parts of the surrounding area are dedicated to different crafts such as stone, wood work, silver, batik and more. My favorite stop was a batik making facility. We were able to see the women hand painting the cloth and the men dying the cloth. Inside we saw all the products that had been made from the materials and I was able to buy some pieces to take home. There are clothing and household products on the ground floor and an art gallery with cloth pieces upstairs. The paintings look similar to canvases from far away but are simple clothes that can be folded for transport and later ironed and hung up.
