Tegallalang – A View to Treasure
The 7klm stretch of road leading northwards from Ubud to Pujung passes through Tegallalang; without a doubt the finest view in Bali. The rice padi views are in the valley located in a kilometre stretch along the road are a tourist drawcard. You will certainly know when you have arrived at this spot by the numerous cars and tourist buses crammed onto the side of the road.
One thing you must remember in this place is crossing the road to obtain a good vantage point to take your fotos. Many times over the years I have seen tourists crossing aimlessly and nearly becoming a bonnet ornament. There are several vantage points located down a few steps to shops and warungs.
Naturally, the owners will attempt to sell you their wares but, even worse are the hawkers on the road who literally shove artefacts into your face. Just ignore them. It can get fairly busy here and at times competitive for the best places to take fotos of the view. Just enjoy!
