experience batad

when i was there a year ago, i promised myself that i have to see it again this year. the experience of being there and the grand view of the terraces being higher and even older than the Colosseum in Rome made it my number one most memorable trip of last year. i remember quoting from the Unesco World Heritage website saying "The Ifugao Rice Terraces are the priceless contribution of Philippine ancestors to humanity". this time i'm opening it to those who want to experience and see the Eight Wonder of the World plus a sidetrip to see the Banaue Rice Terraces. planned trip will depart Manila 10:00pm of Oct 22 and return to Manila by Oct 25 3:00am just in time for us to be able to vote for the barangay election 2010. if you're interested, email me at i.dongho@gmail.com.

i am highly recommending this trip to everyone. sama na.

Both very nice views: the Terraces are amazing. The trip must be interesting and unique indeed.

I agree w/Oman, I highly recommend this trip too. My 1st visit to Batad was like 9 years ago back in college during our fieldwork, and I've only been back last summer, nothing much has changed, still the same stunning terraces and friendly people.

Batad definitely deserves another visit. Kahit nga foreign backpackers, they go there before/after hitting the beaches. I'd go there again myself lalo na ikaw pa ang organizer. Wala nga lang ako sa Pinas :(

>hi Eds, thanks!

>Sidney, thanks! what more when you're really there.

>Mokong, you must really include this on the places to visit soon. it's one of those places where you can take pride of what our ancestors (somehow since they were migrants) made.

>Dimcaye, just email me at i.dongho@gmail.com

>Lawstude, i remember when i first borrowed your photos of batad last time.

>Pietro, the trip and the destination is both unforgettable.

>Pinaysolobackapcker, wow! i didt knwo you went there nine years ago! it remains a stunning village.

>Nomadic, hahaha... salamat. sige sabihin mo kung kelan ka babalik at baka makasama ako.

Hope makasama ako sa trip dito if not this month, sa next sked na pag organize mo. Di pa ako nakakarating dito. The best ang lugar just by looking at your photos.

Please post info again here if u'll be organizing another trip or more trips somewhere. I bookmarked your site for daily inspiration. Thanks.

If only our vacation is longer, I'd visit this wonderful piece of creation!

Beth said...

I so want to go there!!! Di ko pa nakikita Banaue Rice Terraces e. Pero kasi my father is sick pa, kaya no budget and time pa. I hope you'll post uli organized trips just like this, ang ganda ng pics!!!
I hope by the time pwede na ko pumunta, nakabili na ako ng DSLR. I think mejo malapit na yun, I BELIEVE! (With God's help, of course! :)

ito na naman yung invitation. sa megamall nga di ako makapunta. 9hours away pa kaya? sigh. Dom---you are a good traveler talaga. you dont just share your experiences here in your blog, you also share it in real life with other travelers, some of them for sure are newbies. viral ka. naiimpluwensyahan mo maraming tao na maging lakwatsero.lol
