  • 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 »

  • Rice fields are one of the most beautiful landscapes in Bali and Tegallalang rice terrace is one of the landmarks on the must -see list. Very beautiful to look at and a great opportunity to take nice photos. However it has become too touristic and commercial for my taste. They have created some adventure-fun activities like a swing over the rice terraces and photo taking spots where you have to pay and this is a mood changer. In the past this place must have been very tranquil place.
  • It is a tourist trap. It is not difficult to find this place, as it lays on the main road. The local mafia will not let you visit the place for free. If you park your bike, there are parking fee. You want to enter and look at the rice fields, there are admission fee. If you want to cross the bridge and visit the other side, you have to pay another fee. It is not crazy expensive, but you feel like a walking wallet. The landscape is nice, but the fee experience was very bad, we did not really enjoy. If you have a bike, just ride few kilometres further, or on side roads. The terraces rice fields are more beautiful. You can easily walk in, locals will be happy to talk with you. Save your money.
  • Beautiful view of the rice terraces. IDR 5000 donation for parking. Nice to just stop to take a photo. Also a tourist trap where you pay to get photos with some rice farmers dressed up. Better to walk the terraces or explore it early in the morning. But beautiful place to see!
  • I visited both UNESCO rive terrace and Tegallalang rive terrace. I liked this one more. The mechanism of the cultivation is pretty advanced. They follow a step cultivation mechanism and use the rain water to cultivate. It has really good scenic beauty and good place to take photos.
  • Very Beautiful. Many shops along the main road and cafes to enjoy the view. Plenty of scooter parking along the main road as well. A few different swings to choose from. Walking a bit from the main entrance will allow for better pictures with fewer people in them. The paths are narrow, recommend walking or tennis shoes vs sandals.
