Celuk Village is a famous village in Bali as a tourist destination for gold and silver crafts. In the past, the residents of Celuk Village were mostly farmers. Rumors say that there are only three families belonging to the Pande caste who pioneered this industry. This caste is famous for their specialization in manipulating all types of metals to make accessories for Hindu prayers. As tourism became the main commodity in Bali, more and more villagers left their farms and began learning to make silver and gold crafts. In particular, in 1976, almost all villagers had become silversmiths and Celuk Village had been popular in Bali Shopping Tours with beautiful jewelry and other silver crafts since then.
Painting Batuan Ubud is one of the most famous Bali Interesting Places which is also famous for their art galleries both wood carvings, paintings, music and dances. Nowadays along with the development of Ubud as a tourist destination these arts experience rapid development in terms of style, tradition and production capacity.

Moreover, with the arrival of various designs from outside Bali, it really adds to the rich style and color of art without leaving the original character. Prices for paintings are reasonable and range from Rp. 300,000 to Rp. 2,000,000. Most of the artists who work in arts such as carving, painting and even handicrafts are increasingly intensive in their skills and time. Some of the galleries and museums in Ubud can be visited at any time. The development of painting and carving in Ubud was led by the royal figure Tjokorde Gede Agung Soekawati, who initiated the formation of a Ubud artists association called Pita Maha. This association aims to provide consultation and assistance to artists in their efforts to improve their welfare. He also invited many western artists to live and work in Ubud and in 1926 made them involved in associations, such as Colin Mc Phee, Walter Spies, and Rudolf Bonnet. With these western artists, Ubud artists can introduce their work to the world outside Indonesia by holding many exhibitions. Pita Maha is the beginning of Ubud's rapid development as an art center.
