The moment I alighted from the car and saw this, I laughed.What an unusual spot for a Starbucks!
It was located right in the centre of town, amidst the old palace and temples. Some call it progress,
Starbucks makes an attempt to look like the neighborhood they are in, partly due to criticism about its coming in and ruining what was once a unique place.
After a heavy lunch and also to get some relief from the humid weather, we went in to have green tea frappucinos with whip cream and was surprised that there is no air-conditioning. duh..
Next to Starbucks Cafe, you can also dine the Asian way, seated on bamboo mats, overlooking lotus flowers in bloom.
And for 5 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), you can dine while watching performances of traditional Balinese dances and gamelan orchestras. If you are lucky you may hear musicians in practice or witness one of Ubud’s frequent temple ceremonies in progress.
