As with most popular places, you need to see these spectacular landscapes in the early morning (before the hoards of tourists roll in), which is exactly what we did.
We rented scooters, which are (surprisingly) super easy to drive, even in the chaotic traffic, and then spent a few days navigating our way through Bali’s inland region of Ubud (most famous for the “Eat Pray Love” scene where Julia Roberts gets knocked off her bicycle by Javier Bardem).
The most spectacular rice terrace we found was in Tegallalang. We literally got lost in the maize-like pathways and terraces, meeting a few local farmers and stopping to take it all in. This is what we saw.
