Stunning Rice Terraces from Around the World!

Rice is part of the daily food intake of many of the world's population. In rice farming, using terraces is a common practice, when the land is either too hilly or mountainous. The terraces help to decrease erosion and it's easier to fill them up with water for the rice. These are a common sight in third world countries, but much rarer in the first world.
