Thinking Thoughts: Make Traveling a Lifestyle With A Purpose

It's really nice seeing more and more foreigners visiting The Philippines and experiencing what our country offers - from culture, to food, to natural resources, and of course to people. We are not the most visited country in Southeast Asian Region, Thailand I believe, but we are slowly getting there and climbing up the pedestal - establishing the beauty of our country.

There were actually times where I felt alienated in my own country because some travel destinations are flocked mostly by foreigners and not locals. It's surprising how they have managed to research and pushed through with their travels in some of the less known and remote tourist spots in our country. 

How come foreigners can and we Filipinos cannot?

Batad, Banaue, Ifugao: Every Traveler's Bucketlist - Part 3

To complete my list of reasons why I love Batad, I have here my last four reasons to establish my thoughts. From Manila, travel time going to Ifugao Province may be a pain as it takes roughly 10 to 11 hours of bus ride from Sampaloc Terminal, through the Ohayami Bus Line.

There are only few trips per night bound for Banaue, Ifugao so be sure to book your tickets prior to your scheduled trip to avoid any inconvenience. Ohayami Bus leaves Sampaloc, Manila at around 9 - 10 PM and will arrive Banaue at around 7 - 8 AM. Tourists flock Banaue during sunny seasons, January to May, as the rice terraces are dry and luscious greens.
