Little bit stinky and dusty city. Noisy tricycles everywhere. But it is Banaue. City on cross roads..
. Enjoy their surrounding by rice terraces. Visit village Batad. That's reason to stay here.
Seeing both the Banaue Rice Terraces and Batad rice terraces were great. Highly recommend this area and recommend that you hike in the terraces rather than just viewing them from the view points.
Ask information at tourist information. Ask for a ride to people outside tourist information so that you can take discounted price because of no commission.
You need at least 3 days in this place to visit all the amazing places this city has to offer. I said 3 days because you also have to rest because going to these amazing places needs trekking.
It was a fun experience and I will surely come back for another visit!
Not an inspiring city as such, but unpolluted air, clean water. Sadly, locals chew MOMA and spit the red juice out at every opportunity.
Disgusting. Where I come from, spitting is against the law. There are Ifugao villages nearby, with the obligatory locals done up like dogs' dinners in traditional costume just for the tourists. Yuk. Not at all natural. Try to find a tricycle driver with a friendly face and get some real background. Give Milair a call: 09286577591 - he'll help you. Very obliging!
Benaue is the gateway to the ancient rice paddies. It is a beautiful town and the surrounding area is very spe tacular.
The people are laid back too.
Had the opportunity to pass through the town years ago, therefore, my recent visit is my 2nd time. Like any other place in the world, development and progress cannot be avoided.
I'd prefer the old town when there were few homes and few people.
