We have been in Asia for long enough to see a ton of rice terraces and they are always breath taking… We decided to take this experience to a whole new level and found a remote village where we can crash and fully enjoy the rice terraces, added an amazing mountain-bike ride through tea plantations, and we happened to stumble into gorgeous ancient villages on the way… Your stay in Asia will not be complete without this trip!
