If you’re going to Bali you can’t miss the lively town of Ubud. This former artists’ colony, with its long winding streets full of yoga schools, shops, galleries and temples, will capture the imagination of any traveller. But make sure you also check out the surrounding rice fields, where the morning sun colours the terraces a bright emerald green.
You only need walk a little way out of Ubud to be met with a magnificent panorama: magical rice terraces with tall palm trees, babbling brooks and paths where local children find their way to school. Drink coconut milk directly from the fruit, observe the hummingbirds and discover how rice is harvested during a walk or bike ride along the sawas.
