May you are the first time visiting Bali. The good trip for the first timer is going to Ubud and its surrounding with beautiful sceneries and nice people. The most interesting thing you can get in Ubud is about Traditional Balinese Culture whichs still growing up very strong there. You can explore the life of the locals deeply. You can see the performances of the traditional dance, art villages like painting villages, wood statue villages, silver jewelry village and also traditional cloths making is called batik every day.
How to get there? Ubud from Denpasar airport is not far, its only about 24 km or around 1.5 hour. There are some ways to go there, first way is using car and also you can go there by riding scooter. But I don't want to suggest you to use the second way, its so dangerous for foreigners as the traffic is so terrible. All the roads are very nice and smooth along the way to Ubud. The safty is very good definately, there is no criminal case, stealing and other social problem.
The best way to go to Ubud is join with a local driver who can speaking in English and driving well with good and right informations of hot spots in that area. Its so easy to find out the local driver in Bali. Eventhough there are so many local drivers service in Bali but you have to be selective to choose one of them. There are some local drivers are running their business in ilegal. So, make sure that a driver you will get is legal with license and insurance.
