It is a cheap and convenient way to get around, you can rent scooters for roughly 3$ a day (including helmet) giving you the ultimate freedom to go and explore the surroundings of the towns and cities. Another option is to hire a taxi service for a half or full day tour, which is something that almost all accommodations can advice you on further.

Upon immediate entry you will see a split in the road, marked by another sign with IBAH marked on it, the left right hand side leads to the IBAH Luxury Villas, the left hand side to the Campuhan Ridge Walk, go down this road. If you are coming by scooter, you can drive the scooter down, and on the bottom of the street before the bridge you will see a parking lot, this is where we left our motorbike as this seems to be the only option in this area. Before the bridge you will see steps leading down, followed by a bridge, follow this path. The path will take you along a beautiful Balinese temple, and will the continue into the Campuhan Ridge Walk.
Go early, we would even recommend sunrise early, to have this place almost completely to yourself and to avoid the midday heat. The Campuhan Ridge Walk is also beautiful around sunset, but it will often be busy around these times as it is one of Ubud’s most famous spots to watch the Sunrise
