Bali has many working rice fields and most of them in the center of the island.  Ubud is home to the most recognizable rice field, Tegalalang. I was thinking about those authentic pictures that I had to take back with me to my family and friends, and then when we arrived to the rice terrace I was like this is the perfect spot to shoot those photos.it was a great place to visit; the rice field scenery was breathtaking. But when you visit certain temples, villages and even the beaches.at a first glance you might find it less attractive than you expected it to be. My advice is to give it some time.

However there were so many art galleries and cafes near the ledge offering panoramic views of the terraces, perfect for spending an afternoon drawing or painting. You could easily spend a couple hours just taking in the beauty of those intricate terraces. What really surprised me the most about Bali were the forests of wild palm trees growing everywhere, it was so beautiful.

After a morning of exploring temples and trekking through the terraces, we wandered into one of the many restaurants along the edge with a panoramic overlook of the terraces for lunch, I ordered Mia goreng seafood it was super delicious.

Therefore don’t make a minute-to-minute program when visiting Bali. Allow yourself to just watch people, preferably when they are preparing for a ceremony. Spend more time than you have planned discovering the surrounding area. Feel excited when you find a special place or when people want to show you their way of life. By doing so, you will feel great and enriched when you are leaving the island…



Thanks so much for following along on our adventure in Bali! Until next time! xoxo

  1. This looks amazing. I have never been to Bali, but it looks like a place for everyone not only party lovers. The fact that you can see something like this makes it so unique. I have never seen rice fields 🙂 That landscape is so green and lush. Would love to go there soon. Beautiful photos 🙂 Thank you for sharing 😀

  2. This is by far one of my absolute favourite places in Bali. I will never for get my first visit to Tegalalang. I thought it was so beautiful. The last 2 times I have been to Bali I went after harvesting season so the terraces were all bare and brown. I should time it next time to go back just before harvesting when its all lush and green.
