Photo of the Week – Philippines

Puzzle of Green – Banaue Philippines

In honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day – I thought I’d go GREEN with Photo of the Week.  These are the luscious Rice Terraces of Banaue Philippines (UNESCO World Heritage Site).  People think the Philippines is only about beaches – well think again.  This northern part of the Philippines is home to some of the oldest and most stunning rice terrace culture in SE Asia.  Actually, these terraces are my favorite terraces in Asia!

You can also trek from village to village along the terraces learning about the village culture along the way and staying in ‘home-stays’ – a fabulous 3 day hike you’ll never forget!

To read more about the Philippine’s rice terraces and hiking in the area – check out my posts:
