The Tegalalang Rice Terrace is located in Ubud and is roughly a 90 minute drive on a good day, from Kuta.  It is said to be one of the main tourist attractions in Bali and we wanted to see why.

Once you arrive at The Tegalalang Rice Terrace, you can enjoy the view from the top but it’s also possible to hike down and wonder through the rice terraces.  We highly suggest that you do this and experience it for yourself.  You will also be able to capture many beautiful photo opportunities from this point, so take advantage of it.

The best time to visit the Tegalalang Rice Terrace is in the morning or in the late afternoon. It gets very hectic around 10am so make sure you arrive before that if you can, plus the lighting will be so much better in the early morning and in the late afternoon.  We arrived right around lunch time and let me tell you, BIG MISTAKE, it was so hot and we just didn’t have the energy to walk to the right spots to photograph.

We would suggest that you will need anywhere from 40 minutes to two hours to explore these lush rice terraces and please remember to bring water, hat and sunscreen to protect you from the harsh Balinese sun.

The owners of the rice terraces will charge you 10,000 RP per person to enter which is roughly around $1 AUD.  We will definitely have to make a return trip so we can see it in all it’s glory.
