Jalan Goutama

Jalan Goutama (also spelled Gootama)

Definitely my favourite street to take a leisurely stroll. Jl Goutama is a great alley way for window shopping and grabbing a bite to eat. Here, one can find Ubud’s only movie theatre, Ashtanga yoga, and trendy acai bowls. The food selection on Jl Goutama ranges from sushi, Thai, Italian, & French cuisines. You can still find one or two disappearing warungs (Indonesian food stalls) as I update this post on 18 July 2019.

Jl Goutama runs parallel and sits between Jl Monkey Forest and Jl Hanonman. The street, named after Siddhārtha Gautama (the Buddha), is hard to miss because the entrance is flanked by two siting Buddha statues. It’s a shame motor vehicles are allowed on this narrow street. But, dodging dogs/roosters/motor bikes/tour buses are all part of the fun of Ubud.
