Posted by Travel photographer on Friday, 22 March 2019

Situated near the west coast of Bali, Soka Village is home to some of the most scenic rice fields that are nestled just steps away from the beach. For those touring the west side, they can easily make their way to the Soka rice fields. Although the weather or climate changes throughout the year, the best time to visit is before the harvest season when the rice plants have grown to an optimum height and when they turn yellow. And after the harvest season, the land is pretty much bland until the farmers sow new crops.
