Plan a Magical Honeymoon in Bali

Our contributing travel editor falls under the spell of this fantasy island.

To Market

Gorgeous Ubud is marked by deep gorges and terraced rice paddies that glow electric green after a rainstorm. This inland town is Bali’s cultural center and home to numerous craftspeople, artisans and healers. Stalls along the busy roads sell goods such as reclaimed teak furniture and intricately carved water buffalo skulls, and at the Ubud Market in the center of town, bargain with a smile for everything from batik sarongs to incense holders to wooden bead bangles. Follow a narrow road across the rice paddies to the open-air Sari Organik restaurant for delectable tropical juices and Indonesian specials made from farm-fresh ingredients.
