  • Beautiful view and one of the famous landmarks of Bali. A place that we decided definitely visit to when going to Bali. It's highly recommended to visit even for those who are not use Instagram much.

  • Beautiful terraces, and so large. Give yourself some proper time to walk around it fully. Despite it being a popular tourist spot I felt like we were on our own most of the time.

  • There are several entrance points to see the rice terraces. I feel like it was a tourist trap, where you pay a lot of money just to take a picture on a swing. And then they don’t tell you that the terraces are harvest so you only see sad empty brown fields. Don’t go here. Take a scooter and drive in to the fields for a better view. It’s free and more enjoyable.
  • Visiting the rice fields is a must when in Bali! I felt so connected to Bali while walking around and seeing the rice fields. Bali has so many rice paddies so it’s a quintessential part of the Balinese life and culture. It’s quite a hike, so take comfortable shoes, preferably water proof shoes. I slipped into some of the soil and water and was soaked way above my ankle. I also heard loads and loads of people slipping and falling on some of the rocky areas. The beginning of the trail is particularly steep with nothing to hold on to; my driver had to help me down, so be mindful of this. Other than that, it was a great adventure! I went on my own and left feeling very fulfilled.
  • Went there during weekend and lucky enough that there was not much crowd. We bought our ticket for the swing & the swings boys were very friendly in encouraging us to fly. It was a nice & calm place to really experience a rice & paddy field —- at a beautiful terrace. The workers were all the accommodative & we had a great time!
  • One can see that this once was a beautiful place to wander around. Today the terraces are impossible to see from the street because of the hundreds of shops and bars blocking all view. Once on the terraces, one gets asked for a "voluntary " contribution several times without any apparent reason. This with the fact one can expect hundreds of people (tourists) make me conclude that this place fits the definition of a tourist trap nicely.
  • A little gimmicky but worth a quick stop. This terrace is a but north of Ubud which makes it easy if you are in the area. The spot is pretty touristy so expect an entrance fee, kids following you for change, etc. With that being said even after fours years in Asia this is a stunning view. You can try a cliff swing with friendly locals or have a Balinese coffee while soaking in the sight. I was only here for five minutes but didn't regret it. If I have friends or family visit I will take them here.
