The downturn in visitor totals to Bali after an eruption of the Mount Agung volcano and the resulting 2-day closure of Bali’s Airport has left Bali a quieter place – particularly in the Central Bali village of Ubud.

Ubud, unofficially dubbed the “Tourist Village” (Kampung Turis), has fallen victim to empty hotels and deserted restaurants. reported on Monday, December 4, 2017, that Ubud had gone quiet in a period that would normally be the peak season of Christmas and New Years.
Jalan Monkey Forest heading to the Ubud Palace that is normally crowded with pedestrians and traffic has suddenly begun to resemble a ghost town. At the Ubud Palace (Puri Ubud) – viewed as the heart of the community has also gone quiet.  Wayan Eka, a resident of the nearby community of Taro who works as a guard for the Royal Household, said: “Since the closure of the Airport, tourists aren’t coming here. Saying that while large groups of tourists typically visit the palace at this time of year, only 10-20 visited during a recent morning.
The number of visitors to the Puri Ubud serves as something of a barometer for tourism activities in the Ubud area.  Tourist doing a tour to Ubud will normally stop by the Palace before traveling on to the museum, having lunch, and interacting with the primates at the Sacred Monkey Forest.  In recent days, however, both the Palace and the Monkey Forest are remarkably quiet
Meanwhile, Iwan, the Manager of Bebek Tepi Sawah – a popular fried duck restaurant bemoaned his quiet eatery. “The effect is hard hitting, there’s a big drop in visitors, much different from the past when we had many visitors every day.
