  • Actually, we arrived off-season so there was no rice but the terraces were still pretty. There is a real problem there with signs, and we got lost for about an hour walking in circles. Some parts are ...  more »
  • Come as early as possible as it might be very hot when sunny. A lot of ups and downs. There are swings everywhere.  more »
  • I wish I had more time to spend here. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places to visit in Bali. I would highly recommend it to everybody.  more »

  • This is an iconic site in Bali where you can see the local agricultural techniques at its best. The terrace farm is an open land where you can walk through lanes of paddy fields set up for step irrigation. As such it is not a tourist site because the farmers are continuing with their work even as we pass through the lanes and taking in the beauty. There is no entrance free but feel free to donate a small sum to the farming community here. Also...you ll need a bit of physical ability if you want to explore the whole area, since the terrace is pretty steep. You can cover the whole farm in about an hour n half.
  • This is really a great spot to visit in Bali. It's rice terraces in a steep valley giving it a very nice, calming view. I have seen the place partly very crowded, so make sure you come either mornings or later afternoons. There are nice, simple cafés on top, so it's good for a breakfast or coffee in the morning. I personally wouldn't take the trip purely for the terraces. But very nice to combine with a hike, run or biking in the area. Perfect place to take a rest and enjoy the view!
  • It's a good place to go to for vacation. An hour ride from Denpasar. There's a lot of local merchants there with reasonable price so you can get yourself some good souvenirs. There's a lot of photo spot here but some you have to pay for, it's also at reasonable price so don't worry. Before trekking down the terrace you'll find some 'gate' where you have to donate some money. A buck or two will do the job. Enjoy yourself here.
  • Everything is priced high here so if you can get stuff on the way. The place is nice and lush green. You can try samples of different coffee for free before having the one you like. The swing over the rice fields is super nice and you should enjoy it. Beautiful place for taking photos. There are different entry points to take and really depends on your guide which place you go. But is definitely a must go in Bali! Not very far from Ubud!!
  • this place is good, they have lots of cafe if you just want to chill out and see the view.. the also have this "swing" if you dare to challenge yourself. this is my second time being here, and now sadly there are some people who actually block the road (in the rice field) and ask for so called "donation" well I am domestic tourist, so they accept every amount that I spent for them, and I paid only 1 donation (oh I did forget to mention, there are around 3 spots who asked for donation, the first one is nice, he just sit and didn't do anything) but I don't know what if I was tourist from other country. come on guys, if you want to make some kind of donation fee, just make sure it was not like "robbery" so sad ...
