Sheer scenic beauty. Stunning vistas, fantastic scenes and lovely people. So much better to see in reality as there are no photos that capture such beauty.

The terrace are impressive in their size. Different times of the year dictate the color and thus the appeal. We drove ourselves around and I think that is much more preferable to being on a tour. We were able to all the activities without time constraint.

A long walk up the hill rewards you all the way along. It's worth seeing if you can get any of the local boys to let you ride on one of their skateboard/bicycle contraptions that let you speed back down the hill!

Lovely place, great views, and nice people. We walked it from the town, and the walk is pretty nice, you get to see more views and locals along the way which make the experience nicer!

We also swam in water falls and hot springs. It is my favourite memory of the Philippines and I would recommend our guide Jerrick Bitog who was really friendly, funny and... More

The rice terraces are really a sight to behold as you would wonder how the people of Banaue two thousand years ago humanly possible built these terraces by carving the mountains. This is a must visit specially during the amihan season as the temperature is very cold specially early in the morning. It would be very difficult to explore the... More

This appears to be quite an engineering feat accomplished by manual labor. Impressive to say the very least.
