I started off my day with another yoga class, but this time at RAl Vinyasa class at Radiant Yoga which was very close to our hostel. I had a lot of fun and loved being in the front row!

Later on, Franki, Ranah, and I walked around Central Palace located across from the public market. It is the official residence of the royal family of Ubud and has many decorative gates.

Not too far away is the famous Monkey Forest. I had heard several stories of the monkeys stealing peoples belonging and acting very aggressive so I went in with these expectations. Luckily, the monkeys were not as mischievous as I had thought. As long as you have all of your important belongings out of site and you are not feeding the monkeys bananas – you will be fine! The Hindu Temple complex within the Monkey Forest is magnificent and quite large. Over 700 monkeys live there.

In the evening, the three of us went back to the Central Palace to attend a Balinese dance performance.  It was accompanied by live music and all the performers wore spectacular costumes!
