Tegallalang Rice Terrace, which is situated in the northern end of Ubud, offers some stunning views of a rice terrace and is a good photo-stop before our next destination, Mount Batur. It’s only a short distance from Ubud centre and if you would like to have a quiet and tranquil morning or afternoon tea, I would strongly recommend this place to you.
On a hindsight, there are two things that I regretted not doing when I was at the rice terrace. I should have allocated more time (two hours would be nice) to go down the muddy path into the terrace. I saw people doing it and some of them also got a local villager to bring them around the terrace (for a small fee / tips). Secondly, imagine sipping a cup of coffee by the beautiful rice terrace. Can life be better that?
Due to some poor planning (and probably research) on my part, this shall always remain as one of my greatest regrets for this trip.
Some say Bali has one of the most beautiful rice terrace in the world. Most beautiful? That I am not sure. But most photogenic? I can attest to that; just look at the perfect postcard photo with the old farmer!
