    Where do you catch an angkot in Ubud to reach Batubulan terminal? I really have no idea where to catch it in Ubud? Is it from the market?

    1. kunzbali Post author

      I saw it passed in front of the Ubud market in early morning.
      The color is brown and has yellow vehicle registration plate (number/license plate).
      Even you can’t recognize it as public transport because they don’t put any a sign.
      It’s not often (rare) Angkot/Micro/Mini Bus pass here.
      Even the market seller complained that it’s hard to find a mini/micro bus in Ubud.
      Well, that’s the fact of public transport in Bali.
      Better you take a Go-jek or Grab.
      It more efficient, quick and relative cheap.
      But, you have to install the apps first.
