Tegalalang Rice Terraces are one Bali’s most famous fields.  Tegalalang rice terrace is a short drive outside the heart of Ubud. Many years ago Balinese people hand carved the rice terraces. They have relied on this method of agriculture for almost 2000 years. It is a must for any visit to Bali. The rice fields are stunning and the prettiest ones in my opinion.

I visited a few rice fields and even lived next door to one and these are the picture perfect ones. Which makes it no surprise they are the most popular on instagram. You can walk around for hours exploring which is another reason I love these fields. Tegalalang rice terrace is also home to the “love Bali” sign. If you want to take a photo you will have to pay, get there early and it is free.

The fields are massive and magical no matter when you visit. We got there early before sunrise to avoid the crowds. We were the only people on the fields except a couple taking wedding photos. This not only made for great photos but made it so peaceful. If you are planning visiting the fields go for sunrise.

Location

Jl. Raya Tegallalang, Tegallalang, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80561, Indonesia


Costs

Entrance fee of 10k Rp. per person. When going on some of the bridges and pathway many of the locals will encourage you to donate. The minimum is 5,ooo IDR per person. Again you can avoid all this by visiting early in the morning.


Getting There

You could rent a car with a driver and make it part of a day tour. This is what we did and we combined it with the Bali swing and Monkey forest.  Or you can hire a scooter. There is plenty of parking and so you can be there as little or as long as you want.


Best Time to Visit

This is what will make or break your visit. I hear a lot of people complain it has become too touristy but aren’t we all tourists? If you want to avoid the crowds then get here early or late in afternoon. Either way it is gorgeous. 


When to Visit Bali 

April to October are driest months with lots of sunshine. High season is July, August, late December to early January so avoid those months if on a budget. Whenever you visit you will surely get some sun you may just need to be flexible.
