  • Beautiful rice terraces, must see! A little too touristy! Market in single file on small earthy paths, but worth the glance, no worries with young children!

  • really nice, unfortunately they had just harvest the crops and it was empty, but still really worthwile! 
  • Fantastic views. Breathtaking. A must if you visit bali. Some areas were difficult to walk cause it had rained and some areas was quite muddy. Sensible footwear was needed. Only negative that payment ...  read more »
  • This Rice Terrace is for sure beautiful and unique on Bali. Overall it is not that large as expected (i.e. to those of the Philippines or Vietnam). There are simply too many people walking around. Even a local topless lady tried to get some extra money which was at some point too much. The donations which you have to pay was very in transparent to me. However, in total it was a nice day and experience.
  • Beautiful view. Nice place for picture. Great Balinese terrace. Good stop for travelers. Annoying you pay ticket for entrance. And when you get there you have about 3 stops Donation to pass and go up the terrace, but when we said we don have more Money they didn t let us go through, they should understand meaning of donation...
  • Very nice view of deep valley and paddy. But lot would depend on which season you go, else you may find it bit dry. Few small restaurants, cafes for a comfortable seating and nice view of the valley/ rice terraces. Hire a Honda scooter (there are ample rental options in Ubud - they provide helmets as well) and drive to this place. It's much more enjoyable than going in car, as you will spend hours in traffic jams, given narrow roads. On the way from Ubud, there are countless shops selling artifacts, furniture, and gift items
  • Sure, among all the rice terraces in Bali, this place is quite unique. But it's crowded as you'd expect and overall a terrible experience. Having an entrance fee and limiting the number of visitors would make sense. Instead, you are aggressively asked for "donations" along the path, (and make sure you donate enough), even though clearly this place isn't maintained at all. In fact it's covered in plastic, some terraces even have cans floating around, and no one cares. Everywhere kids are asking for money for their "school project", following you and getting mad at you because you won't give them any money. Unbelievable.
  • Iconic and beautiful. The only problem is that it is PACKED many days. Also there are many locals extorting guide fees and entrance fees without any authority. They do now seem to charge everyone to park, so that is standard. But there are men with little 'toll gates' in the fields. They will try to get a donation of 10,000idr or more, but just offer 2,000idr and it should be fine. Do not pay for a private guide, it is not worth it or mandatory and the paths are obvious enough.
