After bidding Canggu Beach farewell and heading off to Ubud, I caught the early morning magic at Ulun Danu and stopped by Candi Kuning for a stroll through one of Bali's most charming and archetypal traditional markets.
Candi Kuning is a sprawling shopping heaven and colorful celebration of Bali's beautiful culture and love for all things beautiful (and delicious ;).
I was mesmerized by the stunning selection of vibrant orchids and fragrant "jungle blooms", the truckloads of exotic tropical fruits (from fluorescent pink dragon fruits to the captivating salak snake fruits and hairy rambutans) and the dramatically hand-painted Barong masks. And of course I walked away a beaming raw-foodie with armfull of
flavor-bursting delicacies to take home to my Ubud abode.
