Your Destinations

Made up of 7,107 islands, the Philippines is defined by its pristine beaches, vivid green rice fields, fiery volcanoes, and diverse culture. The entire area covers around 300,000 square kilometres, and is surrounded by the South China Sea to the west, the Philippine Sea to the east and the Celebes Sea to the south. Many mountains and active volcanoes dot the landscape, and craggy limestone cliffs and caves border the crystal clear waters and powder soft white sands. The religions, ethnicity, language and scenery varies hugely from island to island, resulting in an ever changing, multi layered experience of authentic Asia.

After breakfast, the tour starts with a 9-hour drive from the capital city of Manila to the country's highlands, Banaue. There will be several stops before the first day concludes at the Banaue Hotel.

La Loma, which is known as one of the culinary capital of the country famous for its stretch of Lechon (roasted suckling pig) shops and for its historic cemetery, the Campo Santo de La Loma or more colloquially known as La Loma Catholic Cemetery, the oldest of its kind in Manila developed during the Spanish colonial period.

Heading north, passing the province of Pampanga is the baroque-influenced church of San Guillermo Parish or the Bacolor Church. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1987, and was half buried in lahar during the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991, its seems that this architecture was made to become a phoenix, which can withstand any forces of nature.

Halfway to our destination is where a two mountain ranges meet, Dalton Pass, which is located along the zigzag road of Nueva Ecija and Nueva Vizcaya provinces. Its summit lies 3,000 feet in elevation is where Caraballo Sur and the Sierra Madre mountain ranges connect is our gateway to the grand Banaue Highlands. Historically, Dalton Pass was a holding point of the Japanese army during the World War II and was a site of one of the bloodiest war in Luzon's record.

Banaue Hotel, a standard class hotel, would be the best place to stay during your stay in the Highlands, as it is 4,000 feet above sea level and in the heart of the magnificent wonder of the world, the Banaue Rice Terraces.

Built by the Ifugaos, the terraces was designed as an irrigation for local crops plantation. It is elevated 5,000 feet above sea level and is also the cradle of the Ifugao civilization, their culture, and traditions.

The museum holds a collection of traditional costumes, hunting and farming tools, and photographs of the Ifugao, and headhunter warriors and their prizes. Also on display are centuries-old Chinese ceramics and archeological objects found in Cordillera caves.

Sagada's mountain peaks are the best place to view the sea of clouds enveloping the lower areas, the sunrise and the sunset above sea levels, and the mystical sky from wee hours till dawn breaks where celestial bodies such as the galactic center of the Milky Way is visible.
