If you are thinking of visiting Bali, I’m sure that one of the top 5 places on your list to see there is Tegalalang Rice Terrace. This place is just beautiful and it is part of the Cultural Landscape of Bali Province UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Rice terraces are trendy for tourists in Bali. It means that the place became very touristy. But it is worth to visit anyway. Palm trees surround picturesque green paddies of rice. This is the view to feast one’s eyes.
When to visit
If you would like to avoid the crowd, come around sunset or before sunrise. Unfortunately, we made it there around lunchtime. We were able to get some nice people free pictures anyway. What was worse was the heat, and there isn’t enough shade there. Don’t forget the water and the hat.
What to do
Tegalalang Rice Terrace is a picturesque place. You can stroll along the rice fields and enjoy the scenic views and take pictures. Like a lot of pictures. Climb up and down. If merely taking photographs is not enough, you can try pictures on the nest, or in the heart or on the swing. Your followers on IG will be satisfied. Expect to pay some fees for these attractions.
Good to know
We paid the entrance fee (10.000 IDR/person) and parking fee (5.000 IDR). So don’t forget to take some cash in the local currency. You will need some money if you would like to try the attractions mentioned above. We paid a small donation before entering some of the fields. It seems that there are many owners of the land. I saw that many tourists were annoyed as they paid the entrance fee already. Let’s be mindful of it and try to understand that this rice field is their livelihood.
