Tegalalang terrace farms in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Rice has played a significant role in Balinese culture for at least 2,000 years, and Ubud's Tegalalang Rice Terrace is one of Bali's most famous rice fields. The Tegalalang Rice Terrace utilises a unique water management system for rice farming that optimises water placement and usage. The traditional Balinese irrigation system, known as Subak, is so efficient that UNESCO has recognised it for its cultural importance. The view of the lush fields is stunning, so if you're visiting Ubud, make sure the Tegalalang Rice Terrace is on your sightseeing list.
