Banaue Rice Terraces
Admire the fruits of mankind's ingenuity with a visit to Banaue Rice Terraces in Ifugao, Philippines, perhaps the world's most impressive family heirloom. Carved out of the hillside over 2000 years ago without the aid of machinery, the terraces have been described as the eighth wonder of the world. These elaborate rice terraces have been passed down through the generations, representing a blend of tradition and environmental harmony that were in place long before the term "sustainability" was first uttered. Today, the terraces are just as important to the local economy and culture as they were thousands of years ago and are something to be admired by all. An important tourist draw, there are many hiking trails in the area, and locals often serve as guides. The best way to get to this remarkable feat of "natural" engineering is by air conditioned bus from Manila.
