A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces comprise over 600 hectares of tall rice terraces. The specialized irrigation system used in these fields dates back to the 9th century and is rooted in the belief that watering the rice paddies is about more than simply irrigating crops—it's about the relationship between people, the earth, and the gods.

These historic rice fields are run by multigenerational farmers. Unlike Bali's more touristy rice terraces, Jatiluwih is a great place to have an off-the-beaten-path experience.
The chance to learn about the local farming techniques. We watched the farmers planting rice shoots into the perfectly plowed fields and talked to a family about the rice-growing methods they’d used for generations.
