Bali's verdant green interior might come as a bit of a surprise on the drive in from the tropical coastline, but there's every chance you're going to run out of words for the colour green on your journey inland heading towards one of the greenest places you may ever go: Jatiluwih.  

It's not the town that's green, naturally, it's the rice terraces that seem to pour off from in towards the coastline.  The rice plants in the paddies here grow thick and tall, at 700metres above sea level,  and because the location is deep in the interior away from the heavily touristed coastline, it offers something of a cultural bounty as well.  

The word Jatiluwih breaks down into jati, for really, and luwih for beautiful or unique or good or something along those lines.
