If you are staying in the central Ubud area, for example, the main Ubud area, such as the Ubud Royal Palace or the Ubud Art Market. Then the best way to get to the Lempad House is to walk.

Private Transport Recommendations
If you don’t stay in the Ubud area and choose to stay in the South Bali area, then the guidance for transportation to central Ubud is to utilize a private vehicle. Using a taxi from the site of south Bali to the Ubud area will make your holiday transportation costs more expensive.
Rent a Scooter
You can rent a motorbike/scooter to save on holiday transportation costs to Ubud Bali from the southern Bali area. Furthermore, the scooter rental hire cost in Bali is around IDR 100.000 for 24 hours.
Bali Car Hire With Driver
If you are on holiday with your family and children, you can utilize Bali car rental with drivers.
You must be asking, why use a car rental with a driver? In the tourist area of central Ubud, it is hard to locate car parking spaces. Most tourists will park their cars in the Ubud Monkey Forest parking area.
You can get off at the Ubud attraction’s main gate using a rental car with a driver. Then your driver will scrutinize for a car park. In addition, by using a Bali car hire with a driver, you don’t need to wash your car and don’t have to drive in traffic jams.
Ubud Tour Package
Apart from using Bali car rental services with drivers, you can also look for Bali tour packages that offer tour packages to Ubud.
