Do make sure to wait back and watch the sunset, it will surely take your breath away.
Tegallalang Rice Terraces:
Take a day off from the coasts and make your way inland to the famous Tegallalang Rice Terraces of Bali. As you travel inward, you will be slowly transported from a bustling city to a peaceful hillside. See a side of Bali that truly reflects the island city’s relaxed nature. Eat a meal at local hotels and take a good long look at the irrigation system that is said to be in use since the 8th Century. Unbelievable right?
Ubud Art Market:

In the market you will find things such as authentic silk scarves, shirts as light as feathers, hand-woven bags and countless other hand-crafted goods. A true shopping paradise, there isn’t a livelier and colourful marketplace like this in all of Bali.
