We headed to Tegalalang Rice Terrace one time in February 2018 and the rice had only just been re-planted. However we headed back in April 2018 and since Bali was just coming out of rainy season, the rice fields were booming their green and yellow, beautiful colours.

Our sunrise rise trip to Tegalalang Rice Terrace was actually the highlight of our whole 4 months in Bali. The natural sun rays peaking through the palm trees and bouncing off the rice fields was truly magical.

WHERE TO STAY IN UBUD

Luxury – A couple of recommendations we can give are Alaya Resort which is in a league of its own in Ubud and of course Hanging Gardens Of Bali which are just outside of Ubud.

Mid-Budget – Pertiwi Bisma 2 – A little hint of luxury up in the peaceful palm tree forest! The grounds were immaculate and each villa was faultless.

Backpacker – Sila Urip Guest House – Great reviews at a tiny price for the middle of the island.
