Tourist Attractions in Bali : Tegallalang Rice Terraces in Ubud

It was raining the whole afternoon when we were exploring Ubud. We’re stranded for a while waiting for the rain to stop but it didn’t so we were not able to explore other temples around Ubud. While it was still raining, we headed to Tegallalang Rice Terraces hoping that the rain would stop when we reach the village. Luckily it did, so we’re able to explore it.

Tegallalang Rice Terrace is an iconic tourist attraction in Ubud, Bali. It is located on the northern portion of Ubud, around 20 minutes drive from central Ubud. It offers a stunning view of the verdant terrace rice fields.

The best time to go there is after sunrise so there will not be much tourists in the area. We’re lucky that it was raining before we reached the village so there are not much tourists in the area. We’re able to explore the terraced rice fields uncrowded. 

Tegallalang Rice Terrace is beautiful but it is not as breathtaking compared to Banaue Rice Terraces or Mayoyao Rice Terraces in Ifugao, Philippines. Nevertheless, we had fun taking photos and doing ootd shots. 🙂
How To Get To Tegallalang’s Rice Terraces?
The best and easiest way to get to Tegallalang Rice Terraces is to hire a driver and explore other places in Ubud. We hired a driver for US$50 good for 10-12 hours. If you are adventurous, you can also rent a motorbike for approximately US$5/day. If you take the latter option, take Jalan Raya from Ubud town center and go east as far as you can, and then turn north. After about 10KM or so, you’ll reach Tegallalang and see the terraces on your right.

If you need a ride in Bali, you may contact our English speaking driver, Gede Dasar at +628164718998. He can show you around Bali for US$50 a day up to 12 hours.
