While not as good as those in Batad, these are a good warm-up and the views are great here too. Just don't buy anything from all the gift shops.

Just by the roadside of Banaue town, this set of terraces gives the view without the punishment of a trek. And it provides fantastic views of this set of terraces that is equally beautiful as those found in Batad or Hapao.

We had our trekking for 3days and 2nights and it was amazing. Most of the tourists only visiting the view point... More

For the longest time, I have been taught that the Banaue Rice Terraces was one of the 8 wonders of the world. I wander and wondered if the reputation remains intact. We started our trip out of Quezon City's Trinoma just a few ticks before midnight. After traversing the South Expressway and taking an exit towards Nueva Ecija then towards... More

During my travels to Banaue and Batad, I had the pleasure of visiting with the expertise of a local guide named Irene. She is a wonderful, knowledgeable and kind local from the Banaue town who guided me at both locations, sharing with us plenty of interesting stories about this remote part of the world. If you visit these locations, make... More
