Stepped rice paddies as a honeymoon destination? Why not? Well, it was ours. After our wedding 9 years ago, we took the entire family with us for a trip to the rice terraces of Banaue. One week spent in this tranquil landscape , hiking and exploring made my family and in-laws happy.
There are many rice terraces that can be found in Banaue. Batad is my favorite.
This was my second time here and it was as memorable as the first. It is one of those places that never loses its charm no matter how many times you decide to visit. A lot fled to hide in this village during WWII and it was said to have remained safe and hidden against oppressors at that time. Even today, it can only be reached on foot after a 2-hour treacherous hike along forests and ravines.
|As we hiked for another hour to get to the waterfalls, it started raining hard|
|I almost fell off this cliff during my first visit|
I will definitely visit again someday.
Will you consider the rice terraces as a honeymoon destination?
Love & light,
