My boyfriend and I are travelling around the Philippines for two months. We spent 3 days in Banaue. Our driver, Victor, managed to get us from Manila to Banaue in 7,5 hours, and despite the roads zig-zagging it was a very comfortable ride in his van. (We were very happy that we didn't go by bus!) We visited the viewpoints... More

Hi ! I did 2 treks in Banaue/Batad rice terraces. I did the first one in march: great weather and green rice terraces. The second was in June, I expected some rain but the weather was actually fine and the terraces were yellow before harvest => Awesome. If you go there I really recommend you to contact my friend guide... More

We did a good tour with Roberson who is partly working in Hillside Inn in Batad. His phone is 09161752549. He took good care of us and gave us a fair and reasonable price!

Just walk up the road and you can stop at various view points along the way. Chatting with the locals is an added bonus as everyone is very friendly

It is a majestic place to visit. Try to visit there. I'm sure you won't regret visiting there. The people there are hospitable, friendly, respectful, etc... The view is amazing.

They are breathtakingly majestic! One can imagine the ingenuity when they created them. I am glad that they have withstood the test of times for our generation to still admire them.

They are very impressive and definitely wirth seeing. We had a great guide Nora Atolba (+63 920 278 7326 or +63 905 873 7435) and she showed us most interesting and beautiful sides. She has a huge knowledge about the region and its history, traditions and customs. We felt extremely cared of. If to see rice terraces only with Nora.

Fabulous trip. Took the overnight bus. The bus "station" was a little intimidating at first as it's basically an outdoor shack in the middle of the city. It's worth the money to buy two seats so you get both to stretch out and sleep. 2 washroom stops are clean and good. Spent the day in Batad and then took the... More

It's been awhile since my last visit, but the place is still beautiful. This time, though, I have the pleasure to walk through the rice paddies again. Most of the time this season has been rainy which is good for the fields. It's also beautiful when the fogs cover the mountains, it's so picturesque!
