The area around Bedugul village is often just referred to as simply Bedugul, though it is unclear why this would be the reference point -- the daily flower, fruit, and vegetable market is Candikuning.

Though this area has a great variety of attractions, tourism here remains aimed at the local rather than the international market and the choice of accommodation and restaurants reflects this. Even the five-star golf course has a 1970s Travelodge feel. Everything appears just a little bit unloved: It's almost like the whole place was built and then forgotten about. For a truly odd experience, a group of villas on the hillside about half a mile towards Lake Bratan from the golf course look like a normal holiday resort, but upon closer inspection you see there is absolutely no one there. It's like the plague hit and everyone left town, taking the signs with them.

Bring your warm clothes. A bemo in between stops of Denpasar (Ubung terminal) and Singaraja's Sukasada terminal to this area costs Rp8,000.
