The views are certainly impressive - the rice fields are irrigated without the use of pumps (that I know of). That's why they have terraces - the river water flows from the top, and slowly makes its way down. All of the rice is hand-planted - imagine how much backbreaking work goes into that.

The view depends on the season. Rice is harvested every three months. If you happen to arrive just after harvest, you'll see lots of brown mud instead of the luminous green blades of padi leaves that you expected. Unfortunately, it was also raining when we were there, so there was no chance of walking among the padi.

There are also some cafes overlooking the padi fields, so do note that this is an option if you're not in the mood for climbing the terraces.

It can get chilly and wet, so bring along a light jacket, and shoes you don't mind getting wet and dirty. Do note that cobras can hang out in padi fields too. They tend to shy away from humans but you should watch your step.

Great to visit to admire the view and hard work it must have taken to make! Good for a short stop not a long activity although there are a few cafés and the usual shops and sellers if you wish to make longer.

Trek up and down the rice terraces to reach the other side will be rewarded with a 180 degree view of the enveloping rice terraces. Worth the effort!
