Samantha Ruth Prabhu is on a holiday in Bali and her travel itinerary is a great one for a globetrotter's diary. The Citadel actress shared a few pictures on her Instagram handle from her recent vacation. She was enjoying a relaxed day in the lush green paddy fields of Bali, one of the country's greatest tourist attractions. A trail on the rice terraces, a scrumptious meal, and many happy moments with her travel companion completed Samantha's travel itinerary.
A visit to the rice terraces is a must-visit experience in Bali. The Instagram-famous 'Bali Swing' picture is also taken against the backdrop of these rice fields.

As rice is a staple food in Bali and has strong ties to Balinese culture, travel guides will take you to these paddy fields to get a taste of the traditional Balinese life. Sometimes, they also serve you freshly-made home meals and rice preparations on your visit.
