Banaue, Philippines

I wonder why the averaged Filipino would rather cruise around the metro rather than take an exciting escape to the provinces, and nature. Having around 7,000 islands, the Philippines offers people 7,000 reasons to explore the wonderful country.

I am talking about Sagada. This peaceful place is situated in Banaue which is a 10 hour bus ride from the city of Manila. Sagada has many economical lodging houses and hotels where you can stay for the night. You can easily avail a bedroom for two for as low as 200 pesos. Do not expect to always find urban amenities especially in the remote areas. Yet, this does not mean that Sagada is not favorble. The best things in Sagada are the great mountain views, wonderful natural resources, and the exposure to the mountain community, which brings a uniqe and refreshing experience. Bored with the usual city life? Come to Sagada!
