Touring around Bali and Beyond
Our team of experts can help you find the best tours for you or your “group”. There are so many amazing things to do here after class or on days off! It’s fun to go temple exploring, rafting, diving, hiking, biking etc…with other students from all over the world who are practicing here at AYBRC. It’s also a great time to just chill and relax alone or with friends and family at your guest house or villa. There are lots of yummy restaurants all over Ubud to hangout too (Just ask us and we can send you a list).
Motor Bike Rentals
You can rent a motorbike for local transport around Ubud. Please do this only if you are a confident rider. It can be dangerous if you are not an expert. Riding a motorbike in Bali requires a skill beyond just ordinary riding in the west with rules and regulations. It’s quite loose here and you have many obstacles to watch out for. I’ve been riding since I was 10 years old (47 years) and it is a challenge for me! So please be aware of this as you make your decision. Eddie has a shuttle service for students who need a ride to the Shala. Please contact him about details.
