The popular travel website TripAdvisor recently announced its annual Travelers' Choice Awards and placed Indonesia’s favourite holiday destination Ubud at number 10.

The winners were determined by using an algorithm that selects and collates from millions of user reviews—based on quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide—over the course of one year.

The tranquil town of Ubud has long been a sanctuary for travellers from around the world offering not only picturesque villages and rice terraces, but also rich culture and traditions ranging from art galleries, museums to the best spas in Asia known to provide total rejuvenation.

“This is exactly the kind of experience this archipelago is all about. It is more than just a place to visit, but a haven; a source of peacefulness for everyone who is keen to explore it further,” said Minister of Tourism Arief Yahya quoted in the Jakarta Post on March 22.
