Exploring Tegallalang Rice Terraces

You’ve probably seen the Tegallalang rice terraces all over Instagram, and for good reason! They’re a hop, skip and a jump from Ubud centre, and are a breath of fresh air from the bustle of the town. We had been cooped up for a few days, and it was so good to get outside and
