Bamboo ‘s Highlights of the Philippines’ tour is the perfect introduction to these amazing islands. From Manila head into Northern Luzon, where the dominant feature is the Cordillera (the central mountain range), to visit Banaue – home to the region’s famous rice terraces which were carved into the surrounding hillsides by the Ifugao people over 2000 years ago. From Banaue spend a night in Sagada learning about the indigenous culture before heading south and stopping at the fascinating ‘summer capital’ Baguio. After the sightseeing in Luzon fly south to enjoy six nights on the island of Boracay.
