  • Very polluted terrace, I think the padi field is good for your eyes only. Local park themselves strategically to make sure you have paid a donation , a entrance fee to maintain the path if you want to...  more »
  • You won't miss further along the terrace, while you sacrifice, at least 2000IDR. Or swear and stand on his own, either do not spoil mood and throw stuff. You do not mind and they will not receive anything really, but you will not be able to do. Types of beautiful, one hour is enough

  • We are here eventually just drove through it. Because the rice was harvested, just lay there all forlorn and Brown at. We can imagine that if there had been, the rice here is quite nice.

  • 4 stars as the rice terraces have more of a commercial feel to it. Halfway through you'll be asked to pay a toll as a donation. With thousands of tourists passing through every day, it quite doesn't fit which makes it all the more commercial. For a quick pit stop to take a talk in the green rice plantations to get some fresh air it's alright. As an alternative I recommend the rice terraces in the west coast not far from tannah lot as they have more of an authentic feel to it.
  • Cool to see, but multiple people will stop you on the terrace walk and ask for a "donation" at the multiple refreshment stops in order to let you continue. Trekking can be slippery, but the view from the top is really cool. Recommended 30-45minutes here for trekking the rice terrace.
  • The scenery is nice. Very steep stairs though. Might be best to go there when it's not too hot, e.g. early in the morning or later in the afternoon. Around Xmas time the majority of rice has been harvested. The biggest annoyance was the numerous people in the huts along the trek who ask for donations, supposedly to upkeep the walking trek. These are strategically placed so they stop you a number of times, and one guy didn't let me go further when I refused to pay. as the driver explained this is mafia that has nothing to do with the rice fields. The latter belongs to a collective of the local farmers. Give your donations to them if you come across. FYI, the Entrance ticket should give you full access.
  • It's good and awesome place, but in Bali you can find much prettier rice terraces and less crowded then this is. In the season there must be a lot of tourists. I was there in the "of season" at there was just a small group of people.
  • Views were amazing, but the locals aggressively asking for donations took this tourist attraction too far. Though I wasn't asked for multiple donations because I was a local, I did witness several tourists being stopped along the way even though they had paid donations at the entrance. The farmer was intimidating and pressured them into paying any pocket change they had. This was absolutely disgusting and is not an accurate representation of the Balinese people and their culture. Several local children get in your face to offer you postcards "for their schooling". Though I understand why these people do this, it really ruins the whole experience. A visit through a more traditional and less commercialised rice field would be highly recommended.
