Originally established as a neighborhood library for expats in dire need of a good read, Pondok Pekak has evolved into a community center for tourists, expats and locals. In addition to a fully-stocked adult and children's library, Pondok Pekak has become one of Ubud's leading centers for promoting cultural awareness.

Compared with other classes we did in Ubud, we felt Pondok Pekak was (1) higher quality and (2) more reasonably priced. The instructors...More

Go to this place if you are looking for a fun cultural activity. Awesome for kids. There's Balinese dancing, wood carving, watermelon carving and painting. The dancing was super fun. Its a chilled out relaxed space with nice staff. Food and drinks are also available

Took my 8yr old daughter here for a painting lesson and she loved it. Library is on Facebook and sessions for art, music, food carving can be easily arranged even at short notice via messenger.

Great if you travel with small kids. Build your own kite and fly with it on the football field. Hard to find. Entrance is on the football fields long side, on the middle.
