Overview
The Philippines is an archipelago bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east the Bashi Channel to the north the Sulu and the Celebes Seas to the south. You can find us East of Vietnam, North of Indonesia. The country is divided into the geographical areas of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Its capital, the City of Manila, is in Luzon. You can also enter through the cities of Cebu in the Visayas, and Davao in Mindanao. Mabuhay! The country is made up of 7,107 islands. Some have grown into cities. Some are the epitome of tropical dreams. Some are just long enough to lay down on and get a tan. Big. Small. Sandy. Sunny. Relaxing. Exotic. Beautiful. Our little clutch of islands makes for one long stretch of beach – more than 15,500 kilometers. Here, no one is more than two hours away from a beach-side lounge chair — which explains why everybody knows how to smile and have fun!

Welcome to Cauayan!
Cauayan is a city in Isabela situated in the center of this big and naturally rich province. The town got its name from the word “Cauayan” meaning bamboo in the dialect of Gaddang, the early settlers of this place.
Cauayan was an original town of the Province of Cagayan. It was transferred to Nueva
Vizcaya when it became a province in 1839. Upon the creation of Isabela as a province
by a Royal Decree issued on May 1, 1856, it was reverted as a town of the province.

Departure by exclusive local jeepney for the tour of the rice terraces and one of its
villages. Banga-an is a traditional village nestled in a panoramic valley of terraces. The 20- minute walk on a descending trail permits a closer look of the Ifugao world. Visit a typical home to see their way of life. Proceed to the viewpoint to witness the Rice Terraces acclaimed as the "8th Wonder of the World" & UNESCO World Heritage Site, built over 2,000 years ago.

After breakfast, depart hotel for Hapao and Batad Rice Terraces tour
Onboard a local non-airconditioned jeepney visit the picturesque town of Hapao where
you will view the Banaue rice terraces, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The terraces are just a few of extensive stoned-walled terraces-built centuries ago. It is
believed that it is in this place where the origin of the terraces culture of the Ifugao
started.
Leave Hapao Rice Terraces and proceed to Batad Rice Terraces
The amphitheater-like rice terraces of Batad are without a doubt one of the most
breathtaking views I have witnessed. The 2,000-year-old rice terraces are also some of
the most remote in the world, located in a tiny village only accessible on foot.
When people say ‘getting there is half the adventure’, well they were probably talking
about the journey to Batad. Traveling to this UNESCO World Heritage site is not for the
faint hearted, so it’s best you know a few things before planning your trip.

Coron is one of Palawan’s most popular beach and island destinations. It has caught the
attention of many due to its World War II wreck diving spots, beautiful rock formations,
and unbelievably clear waters. It is also considered a more quiet and laid back sibling of
El Nido, another famous Palawan destination because of its gorgeous waters and
scenery. Coron certainly has a unique charm to it and worth adding to your travel
bucket list when in the Philippines.

Approaching Coron town proper from the water, it’s not uncommon to wonder whether
the long journey was worth it. But Busuanga's commercial centre shouldn’t be judged by

and the heavenly Calamian Islands.
