We will be in ubud during Chinese New Year and i wondered , is it better to visit another part of Bali for celebrations, or will there be some festivities in Ubud? I know in general Indonesia does not celebrate it as much as some of the other countries, but will there be some celebration? Am I right that it's still a public holiday?
Nearly forgot to say, I don't really like massive crowds, don't mind a little crowd though
Thanks in advance!

The Balinese aren't Chinese, so it's unlikely you'll be overwhelmed with festivities of the Chinese variety anywhere in Bali. Maybe try China instead??
Mooball thanks alot I am aware of that... ) I thought there might be some chinese population somewhere on the island where they like to celebrate? I know it's big in Singapore and London due to the big Chinese populations there- I just don't know about Bali. I was thinking there may be a more low key celebration somewhere. We may now be in Singapore at that time anyway and just spend it with family.

Heh. One place that I'm sure will have some celebrations is in Singaraja in the north of the island, close to the tourist area of Lovina. There is a Chinese temple there called Ling Gwan Kiong. It's pretty cool.
