Did you know that even to this day there is still a discrepancy of perception between many archaeologists regarding when and where a rice field was first discovered? Some believe that the first rice field was cultivated in roughly 6000 BC, based on carbon dating of soil organic matters found at the Chaodun site in Kushan County, China. Other experts say that the first paddy field was located in the prehistoric site of Okhyun and Yaumdong in Ulsan, South Korea. Yet whenever the first rice field was planted and wherever it was located, the beauty and tranquility of the emerald stretch of lands remains universal and timeless. Here, its splendor and eternal quality is also felt in Ubud, Bali, coming from a resort surrounded by luxurious green paddy fields, Wapa di Ume.
