In the early hour of the morning -to avoid as much as possible the heat of midday - I am joining a rice trekking around town. What else than an 3 hours walk on the country side before breakfast ?

Wherever you are looking, there is rice! The fresh air and the quiet surroundings are just adding to the majesty of this place! A great way to start a day while you are in Ubud.

As Balinese people are very religious, a temple built in the middle of the rice fields is standing on our way. To be sure to have enough rice to survive, a good quality rice or enough water to make it grow... farmers are turning to the gods for help.

Endless vision of green and yellow rice fields, it's time for breakfast!
