Rice is the number 1 crop in Bali. There are rice fields everywhere. Unfortunately since their are so many people in Bali, they don't have enough rice to feed the whole island so they still have to import more rice form China. I got to meet some ladies working in the rice field and try cutting rice myself. Let me tell you...they make it look very easy! There are many types of rice in Bali. The most expensive one is called Bali rice because it takes twice as long to grow. Since their isn't even enough rice to feed the whole island though, they do not export their rice so at home in the US you are probably not eating Bali rice!
