Batad Rice Terraces is a picturesque sight that you can't afford to miss during your trip in Banaue, Ifugao. It's been visited by tourists across the globe including an alien from another planet called Thanos. For those who are not yet aware, he's the main villain in the movie Avengers: Infinity War. This already popular landmark has received greater prominence after it was chosen to be a setting in this movie. A blockbuster hit which earned more than 2 billion dollars worldwide.

Batad, I love you and I hate you.
I love you for taking my breath away. You leave me breathless with your pristine rice terraces and far-flung appeal. Many have called your terraces the most beautiful in the Philippines. I havent seen them all, but I believe it.
