Owner description: Nominated for designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Jatiluwih offers a beautiful view of contoured rice terraces irrigated using an impressive communal water system developed by Balinese farmers. The scenic drive through the quaint villages and verdant slopes of the central coastal regency of Tabanan adds to the experience.

We went for a long drive directly from the airport to Jati Luwih (approximately 3 hours with the current traffic & small roads) as we wanted to see what makes it so famous. If you want to see terrasering rice fields on high slopes, this is the place. The slopes are higher than what you can see in Tegallalang or other areas in Bali which are mostly just flat rice fields. Don't stop for some small sightseeing of terrasering along the way as the main attraction is the Jati Luwih itself and you'll want to spend your morning there. When we arrived last Saturday in end of August, the paddies were still short hence they were good for photos.
I'd say you can get good photos if you can arrive early in the morning just after sunrise, and walk down the slopes. Even the view from the top is already breathtaking.
I was a little bit dissapointed to find the area to be smaller than what I imagined but perhaps that was because we arrived in late noon and could not walk down far before sunset.
There is an entrance fee of IDR 10,000 per visitor for mending the village roads, and then another IDR 5,000 for parking. If you wish to walk down the slopes, there's another entrance fee of IDR 5,000 per person (which I found pretty strange but fortunately the post was empty when we arrived).
As a tourist area, I'd assume the food & beverage price in the restaurants nearby will be pricy. A bottle of soft drink will cost you IDR 10,000 while a can one IDR 13,000.
But if you don't have much time but still wish to see some rice fields, just go around Bebek Bengil and another restaurant located at the intersection nearbyl (I forgot the name) in Ubud. Tegallalang is another alternative but you won't see a lot of things there other than run down art shops & the rice fields.

I very much admire the beauty of the village of jatiluwih rice field surrounded by terraced. each I have guests, I never miss the jatiluwih for me to show my guests.
Jatiluwih is one the famous tourist destinations in Bali located in Tabanan regency, west part of the island offering the beautiful scenery of rice terrace with fresh atmosphere surround it. It is equal with its named of Jatiluwih where it is derived from two words ’Jati and Luwih’. Jati means real and Luwih means good or beautiful. The breathtaking panorama of rice terrace with mount Batukaru as backdrop is categorized as the most interesting scenery natures. It has been appointed as the World Heritage Site by UNESCO in particular of Subak Organization as a fundamental of the local society life. The varieties of local rice planted in this area are very specific with the size of rice tree that are relatively higher than the normal rice planted in other area in Bali. Jatiluwih is also well known as an area with the organic agriculture.

The Jatiluwih rice fileds was very picturesque. Our experience was enhanced with a meal nearby with a view of the rice fields. We tried the local red rice as part of our meal. a great photo opportunity for avid photographers.

The rice terraces in Jatiluwih are amon the most beautiful in the world. You can easily visit them on a day trip from Ubud or kuta, including other places.
Don't let the driver turn back after the first viewpoint if you are coming from the east side where you can see the terraces on the other side of the hill. You need to continue the road further to the west an pay the entrance fee of 15000 IDR that is collected on the roadside before reaching the most beautiful part of the rice fields.
The views are breathtaking and it is worth to spen some time walking along the paddy fields.
Some farmers charge 5 k extra if you like to walk between the rice fields itself.
Definately not to be missed on a Bali trip!
