Batad, Banaue, Ifugao: Every Traveler's Bucketlist - Part 2

So to continue my previous post regarding my "Bucketlist of I love" about Batad in Ifugao, Philippines, listed here are the next four reasons to essentially support my claims. As only few may have known, the Rice Terraces most postcards show are those actually located in Ifugao, either in Banaue or Batad.

Life is fairly different in rural areas as compared to urbanized cities in The Philippines such as Baguio City. The way of living in the rurals is simpler and as I may call it - slow and steady, and that's the reason why we need to take a break from the stressful city biome and jumpstart a relaxing day in the mountains of greens or beaches of blues and aquas.

Batad, Banaue, Ifugao: Every Traveler's Bucketlist - Part 1

Visiting Batad, in the mountainous Municipality of Banaue, Province of Ifugao, is a living proof that Philippines is still one of the best places in the world, deserving to be on every tourist's travel getaway list. Where comfort is already met with simple and yet quality way of life is definitely an understatement in Batad.

If there's gonna be a single rant that I want to express about Batad, that would be the expensive prices of foods and commodities - however it is pretty justified as they are transporting these supplies from Banaue market which is quite a distance, plus they hire porters to carry all the supplies which includes bottled softdrinks. Oh my, carrying these supplies on a not-so-friendly terrain down the terraces is one heck of a serious job.
