The heron (kokokan) bird-watching at Petulu Village, Ubud 22 May 2013
Coming from the direction of Ubud town, watch out for this signage or a paddy field on your left in Petulu village.
From Ubud town centre, head to east on Jl Raya Ubud till you reach the junction with a big statue. Turn left to Jl Raya Andong, go up the road. About 2km thereon, watch out for the sign on the left to Petulu Village.
We requested to be dropped off here from Eve Spa's free transportation service. On the way home, we booked Warong Enak 's free pick up service and had dinner at the warong.
There is a hut with tables and chairs by the paddy field that give you a great view of the birds.
Order a cup or coffee/tea or "Bintang" from the man who runs the hut.
There is a fee to watch the heron at the village, 15,000 IDR per adult and no charge for kids.
The ticket counter is located at the end of the village. You will need to walk past the paddy field to see it at the end of the road, in front of the village temple.
Why do birds fly in V formation?
