ReeLocations: Campuhan Hills, Ubud, Bali

8

During my stay in Ubud, Bali last year, I went to this place called Campuhan Hills. My lomofriends Engga and Agung took me there and at that time it was afternoon, a nearly sunset situation. No further introduction, here's Campuhan Hills!

Why is this place perfect to shoot or maybe make a short movie? It is simply because the panorama is so beautiful; not to mention that these hills have a historical significance to the Balinese people, especially the people who live in Ubud.

The scenery along this trail is really stunning! The trail is paved with brick tiles and surrounded by high elephant grass. The ambience is so beautiful and even more so when I got there, because it was just before sunset. It cast a soft and fading light that created a mysterious and breathtaking atmosphere. It was for this reason that some people call this place “Sunset Hill”.

The hills are also famous as a location for pre-nups. When I was walking, I stumbled upon a couple who were shooting theirs, and not just that, many young couples were enjoying the sunset view there (so romantic!), this fact also earned hills another name: “Love Hill”.

When you have the chance to visit Ubud, then you must visit Campuhan Hills!

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.
