Ubud Sari Organic Walk
As I had a few hours to kill in the morning, I fancied a walk to stretch the legs and get some fresh air. So I went on Google Maps and searched for a place without any traffic, just somewhere I could walk around without looking over my shoulder, fearing I would be clipped by a passing vehicle.
I stumbled upon a walk called Sari Organic Walk that sounded right up my alley. So I set my destination in Google Maps and off I went. It’s only 5km away, but again, with the craziness of the traffic here in Bali, it took about 25 minutes to get here.
As I got close, Google Maps was telling me to turn into an alley and keep going for another few hundred metres. At first I couldn’t find any type of road to drive up, or see any kind of trail. A few motorbikes soon rode past me and went up a narrow road/path, so I followed them.
It turned out that my peaceful walk wouldn’t be without traffic after all…
The “walking path” is actually a walking path that motorbikes are allowed to use! After a few minutes further, I parked up, and began my walk, but still had to look over my shoulder.
Once settled in, and some music in the ears, I began my walk and let me tell you; The Sari Organic Walk is beautiful and a ‘must do’. if you visit Bali. The walk is flat, littered with lots of restaurants and cafes along the way and a treat for the eyes. It basically runs parallel to a famous trail called The Campuhan Ridge Walk, but I’ve read that The Campuhan is a lot hillier (I’ll investigate later in the week).
I ended up walking a decent four kilometres in total and I was treated to endless rice fields, tons and tons of stunning greenery, quirky little cafes, and local craft sellers.
