Riff Raff?

I had to laugh this morning while reading an information page on a town in Bali called Ubud....their description of the town included these two sentences....

"While it once was a haven for scruffy backpackers, cosmic seekers, artists and bohemians, Ubud is now a hot spot for literati, glitterati, art collectors and connoisseurs."

While I'm personally quite comfortable being lumped in with scruffy backpackers, cosmic seekers and bohemians, it rather sounds like they prefer their tourists to be a little "higher" class, lol!

Maybe we could pass ourselves off as connoisseurs if we ever find ourselves in Ubud!

Ive never been to Bali, but I've friends who holidayed in Ubud a lot - they reackon its lovely...but if its been over run by glitterati and connoisseurs its probably no longer worth going to! the first group sound infinitely more interesting!

You are too funny! I'd throw myself in and be happy to be with the scruffy backpackers, cosmic seekers, and bohemians too verus being in the other class! And I think your right...it's the words they chose in the second sentence that sounds like they prefer their tourists to be a little "higher" class!
