We suppose to start by 9 am to explore Ubud starting with visiting Batubulan village ( Barong dance performance ) , art villages , temples . But our client requested to skip all of this places and visit Ubud to see the Ayurveda doctor . Our client had a problem with her skin because of an alergic and getting worst every day . She need to see the doctor immediately . Someone intruduce to her about Ayurwedic treatment in Ubud . Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical treatment , the traditional healing based from Vedic teaching ( Vedic or in Bali called Weda is our holly book , we are Hindu ) . The Ayurveda clinic is located in Ubud , Nyuh Kuning village , just behind the monkey forest sanctuary .

We need one hours drive from Sanur to Ayurveda healing place , it was a worst traffic since we start a little bit late . Traffic is another view of tourism in Bali . Slow drive through Batubulan village , where along the street we could see a various stone carving statue . Batubulan village is well known as a village of stone carver home industry . Next village we drive through Celuk village that well known as a center of Silver smith home industry . Its amazing that every house we passed through have a large sign of " Gold and Silver " , " Gold and silver & Made to order " . Seems like every family doing the silver and gold home industry for the living . After Celuk we passed through Batuan and Lod Tunduh village , the place of traditional painter . Batuan is referring to the oldest traditional painting style in Bali island . Along the street there are many painting houses , galleries with a beautiful painting on canvas .
