As they say: hard to reach but worth the effort! There is not much to add about this place. The view is fantastic, the tour of the terraces with a guide very instructive and we are very happy to have done it. We stayed overnight and can recommend it as the sunrise light over the rice fields is beautiful. A... More

One of the best place to be in when you're in Banaue. I love the view. The weather when I went there was a bit cool. I love walking on the rice terrace itself. I had a guide with me when I went there. If you don't have a guide, besides making sure of the directions, have a comfortable rugged... More

These are terraces are very picturesque. We had a nice lunch over looking them while we waited for the rain to stop. Rain stopped and off we went. There are a lot if steps here and some narrow paths and after doing some other terraces that day we had had enough when we were finished but it was well worth... More

The terraces are really beautiful and are definitely worth a day hiking. Me myself, my girlfriend and Slovenian backpacker shared a tuc-tuc for 700 pesos to batad (and back to the village) from a local kid. When we arrived at the terraces we hiked around it for a couple of hours. We also went to the small village at the... More

Very very nice place , considering it as one of the nature wonders of the world. There are many parts to visit specially the waterfalls, unformately we had no additional time for that, so i need to come back for more. Friendly local people and accomodating. You may meet some foreigners also exploring the area. Two thumbs up...

This place rocks! The trek to the village (which is about 2-3 hours) is so worth the view! If you want to spend your vacation simply and quietly, make sure to visit this place. This place will offer you the serenity for reflecting. The food is quite pricey since they carry the raw materials from the town to the village.... More

These rice terraces are a must see if you are in the area. The amphitheatre style terraces makes them unique as well as the 2000 year old stone walls help add to the history. If in Batad there is no need for a tour guide to see them or walk around as navigation is easy and locals will often point... More

I have asthma and proud of myself for reaching the highest point of Batad :), wasn't able to see the falls so stayed in the store and waited for my friends to come back. One of the most memorable hike I have ever done, the beautiful view of terraces from the top was surreal.

I visited the Batad Rice Terraces via the overnight bus, toured the entire day upon my arrival, and then left that night on the overnight train back to Manila. The Terraces are literally mind boggling! How big these areas really are can't really be expressed by camera! The people were very kind and there are huts offering refreshments along the... More

This review is quite late. This Rice Terraces is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines. If you go to Batad Rice Terraces the village is quite difficult to reach but it will offer you the best view. I left my camera in the village and I was surprised that a young village boy took the pains... More
