Banaue Rice Terraces, Philippines

#96 - Visit a world heritage/ UNESCO site, dedicated in memory of my very close friend Paige Cameron and her list of 100 things to do before she died. The Banaue Rice terraces are a dedicated UNESCO world heritage site. They are believe to be more than 2000 years old, built by the Filipino indigenous Batad peoples.

These mud walled terraces are considered the 8th wonder of the world. These terraces have survived thousands of years and provide food and income for the entire area and other surrounding villages. There are three main types of terraces, the Pyramid, the Amphitheatre and the spider. These pictures are from Banaue which is famous for the Pyramid Terraces.
