The title says it all. It's a long voyage here from Manila by bus, but the breathtaking view is well-worth it! The weather is also wonderfully chilly, even during the summer months (although with global warming these days, that could change).

Stop off at the Banaue Homestay and ask to take a 3 day trek with Johnathan. He will take you through native rainforest and past 3 villages inside amazing rice terraces and a stop by at an awesome waterfall where you can swim. He has good english and an amazing knowledge of the native forest, the history of the peoples... More

We took an overnight bus from KAMIAS in Manila via Florida bus lines for a two day, 20k hike through Cambulu and Batad. Mind blowing views and challenging terrain. Be respectful of the people, get a good guide and bring a heavy coat for the freezing bus trip. Check out the waterfall near Batad too!

I thought it was hard to go here considering the travel time, but thanks to Ohayami Trans, we basically just slept the night over, and woke up to this amazing part of the country!

it cannot be helped by a local tourist to include this attraction to their bucket list of sites and probably have the same magnetism to foreign visitors. The place is far from the capital of Manila and the long Bus ride is also followed by a steep, edge of the cliff ride on those local jeepneys just to get to... More

The rice terraces are an amazing sight and an incredible accomplishment, recognized as cultural world heritage site by UNESCO <http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/722>. They certainly merit a visit by anyone visiting the Philippines, and are well worth the long drive from Manila. Experiencing this area can be as simple as viewing the terraces from the many vantage points or as extensive as hikes... More

Amazing...beautiful scenery, nice place for stay because of warm cold fresh air.. I will never forget this trip because as you go along the road you will be fascinated along the side of the mountain. Very beautiful.. You need to have an expert and experience driver to go here...

Coming all the way to Banaue, you have to make one more last little trip: to the remote village of Batad. Way more remote and epic than the views from Banaue.
