Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love vs. the Real Bali

If you take a walk around Ubud these days and pop into its many cafes, you will notice a trend. There are many women there who are on a similar journey as Elizabeth Gilbert took in her now famous book turned movie, Eat, Pray, Love.

While Bali is certainly not an unheard of destination, there are still many people who don’t know enough about it to ever justify a trip here. Many were hoping that it would (and also many were hoping that it wouldn’t) expose Bali to the rest of the world that had been turning a blind eye towards the island until this point.

Did the movie really do the Island of the Gods justice though?
