Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is a popular travel destination located in the west of Bali. It is loved for its lush green landscapes that stretch from mountain to coast.
The name of the terrace is derived from two names: Jati and Luwih. Jati is a Balinese word which translates to ‘really’ while Luwih means ‘special’ or ‘good’. The name therefore translates to a really special place, and true to this definition, the rice terrace is an amazing and unique travel destination.
