How do you get around Ubud Bali?
Whichever area you vacation in Bali, you will need transportation. On the island of Bali, there are two options for holiday transportation, namely public transportation and private transportation.
Public transportation includes online motorcycle taxis (GOJEK), online taxis (GRAB), and taxi meters. Furthermore, public transportation will be a perfect transportation choice for sightseeing in Ubud if you stay around the central Ubud area.
However, suppose you stay in an area outside Ubud, such as Seminyak, Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua, and Tanjung Benoa. In that case, private transportation is the best transportation option for a vacation on the island of Bali. The reason is that public transportation has not yet covered all Bali areas, and private transport saves on vacation costs in Bali.
Furthermore, private transportation in Bali is available by motorbike or car.

Bali Car Rental with Driver
If you don’t stay in the area of Ubud, the best way to visit the Arma Museum is to get a car rental service with a driver in Bali.
By utilizing a Bali rental car with a driver, besides visiting the Arma Museum, you also can visit other tourist attractions in Ubud Bali, including Ubud Monkey Forest, Ubud Art Market, and Ubud Palace.
If you decide to get around in Ubud with a car, I advise looking for car rental services in Bali with a driver. The reason is that finding a car park in the tourist area of Ubud is very difficult.
By using a driver when renting a car, your driver will be looking for a car park. You can get out of the vehicle directly at the destination, without thinking about finding a car park.
Car rental rates in Bali with a driver depend on the type of car you want to hire. For instance, Toyota Innova Reborn with a driver rental price in Ubud Bali is IDR 600,000 / 12 hours without fuel.
If you are on vacation with more than 6 participants, it’s good to use a microbus-type car such as the Toyota Hiace or Isuzu ELF. The average car rental rate per person will be cheaper by employing a microbus.
