Hungduan Rice Terraces News
Believe it or not, I've never been on a date since Valentine's day existed or since I've acknowledged it's existence! LOL!

Two weeks before the trip Kuya Dane was asking me to provide the itinerary and budget for our travel, unfortunately, for the past months I have been too busy to create our budget and itinerary. All I can say that time was the budget was 5,000 Pesos per person and we are leaving on the night of June 11 ...
It's officially summer, with temperatures hitting the mid-30s. Many will most likely be heading to the beaches, as we have some of the best in the world. But how about going to higher ground instead to explore the Cordillera Mountains, site of our world-famous rice terraces.
Built by hand by our Ifugao ancestors more than 2,000 years ago, the terraces cover the province of Ifugao like a spider web. While terraces can be found in many parts of the world, ours were built on steeper slopes at higher altitudes. The careful carving along the natural contours of hills and mountains to make the st ...
