Banaue Rice Terraces, The Philippines

#231 Banaue Rice Terraces, The Philippines

A World Heritage Site, these ancient rice terraces were damaged somewhat during a earthquake a few years ago, but are almost rebuilt.

An eight hour drive from Manilla, the area has a nice hotel, and many of the terraces are easily accessible. A few, like the most famous fields at Batad, require a hike to the best observation points, while others can be shot from the road.

Like most rice terraces, every season brings a different mood. If the tiers are filled with water, it’s probably the best period, although the lush greens of summer and the golds of autumn and winter are also great.
