The once small village of Ubud has expanded to encompass its neigbours - Campuan, Penestanan, Padangtegal, Peliatan and Pengosekan are all part of what we see as Ubud today. THe centre of town is the junction of Monkey Forest Rd and Jl Raya Ubud, where the bustling market and crowded bemo (small minibus) stops are found, as well as Ubud Palace and the main temple, Pura Desa Ubud. Monkey Forest Rd (officially Jl Wanara Wana, but always known by its unofficially name) runs south to Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary ans is lined with shops, hotels and restaurants.

Jalan Raya Ubud (Ubud Main Rd - often Jalan Raya for short) is the main east-west road. In the east, a mix of cheap accommodation, idiosyncratic shops and little cafes give Jl Goutama a feel of Ubud 25 years ago. West  of Ubud, the road drops steeply down to the ravine heaven like Campuan. where an old suspension bridge, next to the new one, hangs over the Sungai Wos. West of Campuan, the pretty village of Penestanan is famous for its painting and bead work. East and South of Ubud proper, the 'villages' of Peliatan, Nyuh Kuning and Pengosekan and are known variously for painting, woodcarving and traditional dance. The latter has been the focus of recent development, with rice paddies giving way to new hotels. The area north of Ubud is less densely populated. with picturesque paddyfields interspersed with small villages, many of which specialise in a local craft.
