Rating & Reviews
Nice and pleasant place to see the traditional rice gardens, swings and bike rides. Dress casually and wear proper shoes to explore the place. Based on weather, you might feel exhausted at times so drink lots of coconuts water
This was a lovely calm and scenic outing, it was very relaxing to meander through the rice fields. We paid to go with a guide, I would suggest doing this as it not only supports the local community but he added valuable insight into the places we saw. The Bali Swings are one of the big tourist attractions at the Tegallalang Rice Terrace's, we opted for the cheapest option and really enjoyed it. This spot had some wonderful photo opportunities too so bring your cameras! I suggest also bringing sunscreen, a hat, water and snacks, as it can be a long hot day.
Very beautiful and relaxing view ,u can enjoy lot of activities there like swing ,wear a comfortable shoes as u have to walk down for a good distance and drink lot of water.
It was very relaxing to see the rice field here. You can explore the area or enjoy a snacks & drinks at the cafe around here.
A bit unfortunate because some decorations make it less authentic and natural. But still lovely. The location is not to far from Ubud
Highly recommend a visit here when visiting Bali/Ubud. If you come here without a tour guide, make an effort to come early in the morning or later afternoon so that you can have a pleasant visit without being too hot. There are lots of tourist things you can do like bike riding in the sky and swinging. You can also just take a lovely stroll through the rice terraces. It's very serene and calming.
