About
Tegalalang Rice Terrace comprises a series of cascading rice fields. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the area is especially popular during sunrise and sunset. Take your time to explore the terraces, visit the nearby Bali Pulina plantation, and have a go on the mountain-edge swings. To see the fields at their greenest, visit in March, August or September. They're also green in December and February but are slippery due to the rainy season. The rice terrace is commonly visited on a tour of Ubud which includes other places of interest like the Monkey Forest, Tegenugan Waterfall, and Tirta Empul Temple. – Tripadvisor

    Walk the Tegalalang Rice Fields
    Tegallalang Rice Fields is situated in a valley that offers extraordinarily scenic lookouts over the terraces and surrounding green landscape. You can get your instagram moment but I would recommend actually climbing down and crossing a small stream and get to the rice fields on the other side. Wear good shoes! It’s well worth it - will take about 30 mins to 1.5 hours depending on how far your walk!!

    Cool
    We are one of a few that crossed over to the other side and hiked over. Drink stop available. Hiking shoes is a must. Take your time to walk and not rush coming down and fall like we saw a set of visitors, of which one broke their flip flop. There is also options to cycle, Zip line or fly along a line. You can also sit on one of their swings.

    Visit the rice terraces
    We stopped here during an all day private car tour around Ubud. We had lunch just down the street and we’re able to walk over. The scenery is amazing, walking through the terraces was amazing. I had a real sense of how steep the terraces are after walking down and then up! It was not too crowded but I could see it getting busy and not as enjoyable because the paths are narrow, as re the bridges and certain walkways.

    A nice view from a distance
    Nice rice terraces to be observed from a distance, and the views from some of the nearby coffee shops are good. It’s a shame it’s been kind of ruined with the photo shoots, and stupid instagram spots around the area, as this really takes away the authenticity of it. We even saw people having professional photography shoots here, ridiculous really. I’d say come and enjoy it early morning but don’t bother paying the entrance fee, unless you’re into the whole photo shoot thing.

    Definitely worth a visit!
    We loved this place - it is so beautiful and surprisingly accessible. We just drove up, parked on the side of the road and went for a walk. The gentlemen who sold us the tickers also helped us park. At the end of our walk, we sat and viewed the whole space from the balcony sipping a coffee. Really nice...

    Beautiful!
    On of Indonesia' s main attractions. It is a beautiful scenery where also you can do activities like swinging, suspended bicycle ride on a robe, and zipline. It is a great place to take photos as well. It takes around 30 minutes to visit the terrace.

    beautiful view, trek thru would be recommended
    The rice fields although still in use, are more of a tourist attraction. But its still worth a visit. We did not take any swing photos/ do zipline. We spent a couple of hours in the terrace enjoying its beauty. Our mobile cameras do not do justice in capturing the beauty of the place. The entrance ticket is a small amount. Come prepared with proper footwear since the trek is step and slippery at locations. There are many restaurants near by where one can get a great view of the terrace while dining.

    Instagram has ruined this little gem
    Doesn’t live up to the hype. I dare say instagram has ruined this place. While the far side of the rice fields are great to stroll and see the actual fields being worked, The over populated locations of instagraners and YouTubers more concerned about how they look and getting that perfect photo with zero interest in what the location is actually about says little about todays travellers. Sad reality is that they have taken photos that don’t actually tell the story of this location and have in essence caused the scores to rise higher than this location actually deserves. A good 3 hours and a 3 star location for sure….and only if you are in the area. But don’t go out of your way to visit this site as there are plenty of rice fields around the area without the commercialization and high prices in and around this tourist trap.

    Ordinary
    The fact that there was a price to visit a rice terrace, in retrospect, was perhaps the first sign that this was a bit of a tourist trap. Although I'm sure that this originally acted as a strictly agricultural exercise for cultural purposes, it seems that today's major crop is being brought in on two legs. The majority of your steady Instagram needs are there, including jungle swings and people carrying baskets.

    Very meh, great potential but it is just too over priced.
    The most boring thing I’ve done in Ubud so far, and I like boring. But 50k to get in and all there is to see/do is a small waterfall, a very small amount of terraces (the large plot of rice terraces is actually split between 4-5 businesses so it’s not as big as it seems) and you could also get a drink I suppose. Everything else comes at an extra charge. The bali swings may have been a fun thing to do but at 100k I just couldn’t afford it as a budget traveller, any other activities were more than 100k (yes you have to pay separately for each thing) there were a few packages but again this was upwards of 300k. So in summary, if you’re a solo traveller, I don’t recommend, but if you are travelling with someone else with a large budget you may find this fun.

What a mess. Broken paths, broken staircases, poor upkeep. Instagram overload. It’s just a place for people to take photos/videos for their socials, no authenticity left. Go down the road more to Cretya Club for the prettier views.

Very photographic but not a true working rice field, it has now been turned over to tourism and is more 'Disney' like than an authentic experience.
There are swings, two zip wires and other stuff but not what I was expecting or wanting to see. All experience too fabricated

The place looks ordinary on photos but in real life it can be very fun to walk up and down and explore the hidden roads and treasures of rhe rice terraces. They are all connected so it doesn't matter where you enter, but we advise going through Mupo rice terrace first as it's owned by a sweet old couple that would appreciate your donation. They also offer free swing and you can by delicious fresh coconut and enjoy the view in the shade.

These rice fields are beautiful..no mistake.. Can’t they just leave be ? You’re now treated to people dressing up to go on swings for some media rubbish.. it just dilutes the whole thing. World swing championships anyone ?

Good places if you visit early in the morning and you will have a good breath (good quality air).
Minor : if you visit noon the place is quite busy and noise from construction.

Amazing landscaping of rice terraces in Bali.
Of course one of the major businesses of Bali is agriculture and Bali majority food is rice, you will see the rice terraces in almost every part of Bali.

The rice field view is amazing, go early in the morning because around lunch time it’s too hot and there is no place to hide from the sun.
For the swing you need to pay and for the dress as well, they have a couple colors to choose out and when taking pictures they are taking them with your phone , first from the back and then face forward on the swing. Beware of the long waiting line before getting on the swing. If you have a drone I would recommend to take it with you for even more videos and pictures.
Ps. On the fields you can take picture with the hats and work equipment , there is not fee for that but the woman which stand there are trying to rip you off with money, you are allowed to give money which is used as support but don’t let you get ripped off
