The famous Tegalalang Rice Terraces in Ubud, Bali is one of the most popular photo-taking spots for influencers in the last 2 years. It is located on the way to the Tirta Empul Temple. The road going downhill from the Rice Terrace isn’t easy to walk. Some are really steep. If you are in slippers take extra care here. Even though this rice terrace is nothing in comparison to what we have in China, the palm trees and straw huts dotted in between also have that unique character, typically seen in tropical areas. From some angles it looks particularly similar to tea gardens in Sri Lanka. There are some huts up in the middle of the mountain offering shade and reset to tourists. The majority of them produce Kopi luwak, an Indonesian specialty. This expensive coffee is defecated by the Asian palm civet, which eats coffee beans. Well... Well, I didn’t drink it. Perhaps it’s because the scenery is too nice. When you are taking photos be sure to keep an eye out for what’s below on the ground, else you’ll easily sink into mud. Your whole foot would sink in and you can’t pull yourself out.
We suggest visiting the terrace when the morning sun is just about to hit. At that point there aren’t too many tourists and the lighting is great. You’ll be able to shoot beautiful photos.
