I took the open top bus from the City of Arts - the ticket is only valid for this bus route and only picks up at some of the stops so check the leaflet. The trip lasts about 2 hours. First of all you pass the rice fields which are full of egrets, herons and other birds and then you stop in El Palmar village where you go on an included boat trip round the lake. Again there were loads of herons. It was very peaceful, the lake smooth with views of mountains behind the reeds. Quite a change from the bustle of Valencia. The bus of course takes you back to Valencia. If you are interested in rice growing go to the Museo del Arroz as well. Excellent value.
