If you have the time and possibility go and visit the massive rice terraces or rice fields close to Ubud. It’s about one to 1.5 hours by car. It’s a bi touristic but still impressive to see. There are just rice fields as far as you can watch.
After we had a walk through some upper rice terraces and took some pictures we saw a dead snake on the road. So we asked the driver if that is a dangerous animal. He said yes and that the snake is actually poisonous and lives in the rice fields. We don’t know if that is the truth and nobody got bitten but it would have been handy to have that information before we walked into the rice fields.
