Ubud is the perfect place to try some excellent raw vegan food. The tropical climate gifts the island with the juiciest fruits and freshest vegetables, ideal ingredients for healthy and unique dishes. Following a raw-food diet consists of eating food in its natural state, neither cooked nor adulterated. Some restaurants also offer raw food and raw cooking classes, which are an awesome opportunity to learn alternative ways of cooking and eating.
Located in the village of Penestanan, Alchemy is the spot for a healthy meal with friends. The menu is vast and they have a salad bar where you can create your own dressing. The raw chocolate brownies are also a must-try. Alchemy is also an academy that offers a variety of raw vegan culinary courses and certifications.
Located in the central Jalan Gootama, Soma has a beautiful and airy garden, perfect for enjoying the delicious menu with plenty of raw food, vegan and vegetarian options. They make their own fresh cashew milk and they often have live music playing.
Located in the oasis of peace of The Yoga Barn, the Garden Kafe serves a wide selection of vegan, vegetarian, raw and Ayurvedic food. The tofu-tempeh scramble and the breakfast burrito are divine. There’s also the Juice Bar that prepares healthy and detoxifying beverages, like the local jamu, a mix of coconut water and turmeric.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
