Upon pickup from the Bali port, meet your savvy guide and driver who’ll take you to Celuk Village, a small gold and silver crafting village near Ubud in central Bali. There, observe goldsmiths and silversmiths fashioning meticulous works of art, or browse through galleries and artist workshops lining up the main road to search for your favorite buys. Apart from jewelry, the artisans also offer beautiful silverware for sale.
