Nice place to see the stepped rice fields. There are numerous shops for wood carving, paintings and other art forms on the route. You can go as far as you wish to explore the rice fields; there are a few restaurants too right after a couple of steps down. We had lunch at one of the places; food was nice and I even clicked the menu. It was overhanging the rice fields. Overall good to hike and have good amidst nature.

I've always wanted to go to a rice field since I've seen so many photos on social media & this pace didn't disappoint! It's free to get in but there are donation places along the walk. I just gave them 2,000 for each one. I took a scooter here, which I think is the best option so you're not on a time limit with a tour group. Definitely come here if you want to see rice fields, but go early so you don't have as many tourists there.

What a beautiful spot! Going mid morning till noon, there were quite a few people in the terraces and it got really hot! I'd recommend heading out earlier in the morning. There are a number of ways to go down into the terraces, some more scenic than others. Once you're down in the valley, it's pretty fun exploring the paddies!

Large and picturesque rice paddies. There is a swing too so you can enjoy the view. Little entrance fee but then you are stopped to donate a little more which is mandatory. Well kept but hilly. Wear a hat and comfy shoes

Very beautiful place to check out and the price is hard to beat! There are spots throughout were people make you feel like you must donate money in order to pass, but you DO NOT NEED TO!!! I chose to and had one guy give me my cash back and demanded more. I have him the cash back as a nice gesture and asked him to get out of my way. He asked for more cash. Please remember, it's a donation and not required. These people get paid via your entrance fee. It's definitely worth checking out but do know there are a lot of uneven stairs and it's quite the workout! Being plenty of water or some extra cash as there are a few spots throughout where you can get some drinks and have a seat to cool down!

Who could imagine that a rice field can be such a wonder? Beautiful view. Recommended to move around the terrace to have different views of the fields. Please, remember that this is a touristic attraction for you but still some people are working in there, let's try to respect them. Many restaurants and shops around the area.

A good place worth visiting just to check out the famous tiered rice fields in Bali. Loving the freshness of the areas. In some areas it gets a bit touristy at times. There are some cafes with great views of the rice fields. If in the neighbourhood, i would recommend a quick detour to visit the area and soak in the view.

It's the tourist thing to do, nothing much going on except beautiful rice fields. Too hot to climb down amongst all the fields but there are good places for photos from near the roadside. So many street traders want your business, which I love to do because it supports the local economy but be prepared to bargain hard! I could usually get something that starts at 150,000 down to about 30,000!

Really loved how serene the environment is here. It is just as amazing in person as it is in the photos. Definitely go early to avoid crowds. We arrived just before 9am and it wasn't busy at all. But when we were leaving around noon, lots of people were coming in. Bring some water as it does get to be quite warm and there is minimal shade. There is a cafe on the far side and we rested there in one of the cabanas. Lots of photogenic spots as well. The parking is a bit confusing. We were informed that motorbikes can go along the road but there are no parking signs and we ended up parking in the lot with the cars. There is also a relatively clean washroom in that parking lot.

Everything is priced high here so if you can get stuff on the way. The place is nice and lush green. You can try samples of different coffee for free before having the one you like. The swing over the rice fields is super nice and you should enjoy it. Beautiful place for taking photos. There are different entry points to take and really depends on your guide which place you go. But is definitely a must go in Bali! Not very far from Ubud!!

If you're visiting Bali, you simply must come here. It is just so beautiful, being able to walk among the rice fields with chickens running around and coconuts and papaya trees along the way! Be warned, there are a lot of tourists (of course) and you will be expected to make a small donation of around 5,000 to use the bridges to access the field and the path, but for that tiny cost it is well worth it.

To start with, our driver drove us to a parking lot where at the exit we already had to pay 10K rupiah per person just to enter... what? a street filled with souvenir shops. The street is on the top of one of the sides of the terraces so already from there you can see the terraces. The view is nice, but then the weird thing happens... at the entrance to the actual terraces we found 1st "Donation" box. The rule is simple you either "donate" or you can't pass. Our driver guided us towards different path but soon we found another box. Then we started to climbing the other side and another box appeared. Until the top there were at least two more boxes. The donation as they say goes for mating the path... that is not true. I have seen some tourists giving as much as 100K which is 10 dollars. With the amount of tourists this place makes 100s of dollars per day. Then the driver told us that it is because each level is part of different field so those people are simply different farmers and the money goes for them... that is not true. As I said yeah stands makes 100s dollars a day... with minimum salary being around 300-350 dollars this would make those farmers the richest people in the village which they are not. Because of this we decided not to go further. The money definitely doesn't go for the maintenance of the path (which at times is simply a muddy path that naturally appeared because of all the people walking there) or poor farmers that stand there the whole day and with smile on their faces ask for "donation". Sad reality is that someone does benefit from it. Furthermore, on the both sides of the terraces there are famous swings that also ask for ridiculous prices up to 20 or even more dollars. And the guys that operate those swings look like everything but farmers :/. But the visit to the area is recommended because of sheer view, just try not to support shady business that is going on there.

Very cool. We went after 15.00 so there weren't many people there. Great experience, took the long route around so a lot of steps up and down. Good exercise! If you go in not at the main entrance you can donate however much you want at the other side of the terrace. (The other entrance is when you walk right from the main one..a small doorway between shops and cafes)

This is an iconic site in Bali where you can see the local agricultural techniques at its best. The terrace farm is an open land where you can walk through lanes of paddy fields set up for step irrigation. As such it is not a tourist site because the farmers are continuing with their work even as we pass through the lanes and taking in the beauty. There is no entrance free but feel free to donate a small sum to the farming community here. Also...you ll need a bit of physical ability if you want to explore the whole area, since the terrace is pretty steep. You can cover the whole farm in about an hour n half.

This is really a great spot to visit in Bali. It's rice terraces in a steep valley giving it a very nice, calming view. I have seen the place partly very crowded, so make sure you come either mornings or later afternoons. There are nice, simple cafés on top, so it's good for a breakfast or coffee in the morning. I personally wouldn't take the trip purely for the terraces. But very nice to combine with a hike, run or biking in the area. Perfect place to take a rest and enjoy the view!

It definitely has great view! Definitely great for photo shoot 😁 and I also saw a bungee jumping spot I think... Unfortunately it's hard to get a parking space especially if you bring your own car which what happened to me and I just made a u-turn and head back down, we just got a view from the street above

It's a good place to go to for vacation. An hour ride from Denpasar. There's a lot of local merchants there with reasonable price so you can get yourself some good souvenirs. There's a lot of photo spot here but some you have to pay for, it's also at reasonable price so don't worry. Before trekking down the terrace you'll find some 'gate' where you have to donate some money. A buck or two will do the job. Enjoy yourself here.
