I’m writing this post about the Tegallalang Rice Terraces from a Canggu cafe. From where I sit and look out the gigantic windows, there is a stunning view of the lush rice fields.
Grateful & Content
I feel blessed, grateful and content. My bubbly friend Ceria and I passed by this uber cool coffee space while driving around the area looking for a place to sit and work on our laptops.

Since my last Travel Tuesday post, I’ve visited so many beautiful and enchanting places on the island. Most of which can be found on my social media pages. I will try my best to cover all on the blog, even after I get back to Dubai.
But let’s not think or talk about Dubai. Because honestly, all I can think of these days is plotting a plan to escape to Bali – preferably with a man! I’ve even started setting the intention for that specific goal during my morning meditation session. Yes, it’s about time to find a life partner who shares my love for the magical island 🙂
Tegallalang Rice Terraces
So it’s my third time in Ubud and my first to the Tegallalang Rice Terraces. Can you believe that?! This is mainly because while attending the My Chi Journey wellness retreat, we only get a couple of hours to explore the town in between sessions and workshops.
Luckily, the group at this specific retreat were so friendly and open. Some of us managed to go together to the popular Ubud natural spot. I even took them to Kafe Ubud for a nice, healthy lunch before heading to the Tegallalang Rice Terraces. See, I told you they were a great group of people!
The Tegallalang Rice Terraces were nothing less than magical. If I had more time, I would’ve gone on a long trek and gotten lost there until someone finds me and guides me back to the main entrance. On that note, we actually did get lost for a short period of time before one of the girls in the group managed to guide us back to where we started our tour! Obviously this only added to our fun adventure and made me want to go back even more.
Another highlight of that lovely excursion was when I said to the girls how thankful we were together, because otherwise I would simply get lost in the terraces. One of the girls responded with: “You might meet your soulmate farmer and live happily ever after!” Now if that’s not hilarious, I don’t know what is!
One thing that you must make sure to do when heading to the rice terraces is to wear comfortable walking shoes. Don’t wear flip flops or sandals. The trek up to the Tegallalang Rice Terraces can be challenging and requires a good amount of fitness and a comfortable pair of walking shoes.
