Day 1: Emerald-green paradise

The Tegalalang rice terrace is a famous spot located a short drive outside the heart of Ubud. They’re famous, in my opinion, because they’re the most stunning rice terraces in the area. I’d say that’s because they’re so well maintained, have plenty of great vantage points and are easily photographed, explored and enjoyed by visitors. The layers of dense green foliage creates an amazing pattern on the side of the hill, almost like a big, green, layer-cake.
