The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lucerne (Hofkirche, Rigi, &more) and Rhine Falls (in Neuhausen am Rheinfall). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grossmunster, and stop by Old Town.

Ubud, Indonesia to Zurich is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Ubud to Zurich due to the time zone difference.
